Does anyone still believe that the US legal system has anything to do with truth, or safety of society, or even punishment? Get that clear guys, the american prison system is an industry, and people are the raw material. They just have to keep the prisons full to keep the cash flowing. It is totally irrellevant if someone is guilty or not. If you have bad luck, you get convicted, regardless of what you did or did not do. And as long as there are companies making profit from this system, it’s not going to change. But hey, thats capitalism in its purest form. So in essence, this is the american way of life, right there.
