Finally, Finally and FINALLY thank you Federal Judge, under some circumstances Police Officers should be held “Personally Liable” for what they do. We are, if we commit a crime, why not them?
RevoRob
Whilst I agree with the general principal of Qualified Immunity, it must only apply where the officers involved can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they acted in good faith. In any incidence where an officer invokes qualified immunity, it must be the responsibility of the officer to prove they acted in good faith and NOT the responsibility of the affected citizens(s) to prove that they didn’t.

26 jul. 2012

On February 21, 2008, 38 current and former Duke lacrosse players and several of their parents filed a federal lawsuit against Duke University, the City of Durham and a number of other entities and individuals. A news conference announcing the lawsuit was held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Speaking are Robert H. Bork, Jr., spokesman for the plaintiffs, Charles J. Cooper of Cooper & Kirk, PLLC, their attorney, and Steven Henkelman, father of Eric Henkelman, a former player, both of whom are plaintiffs.

Ironically the outlandish and outrageous actions of DA Nyfong served to clear unequivocally the defendants. Had Nyfong done his job correctly and concluded that Mangum was an unreliable victim and the case not prosecutable, this would have resulted in a cloud over the defendants that would possibly exist until the present day and confirm to feminists and activists the existence of white and wealthy privilege.

Those students that jumped in head first, without any shred of fact, should not have been able to get on with their lives, when EVERYONE of those lacrosse players lives stopped the day the were accused of a false rape.

7 The president of Duke University offers an apology for the handling of the Lacrosse scandal.

Back to menu

31 jul. 2015
 
(29 Sep 2007) HEADLINE: Duke University president: ‘I apologize.” ————————————— 
CAPTION: Watch as the president of Duke University apologizes for the school’s role in last year’s scandal in which three lacrosse players were falsely accused of rape. State prosecutors determined the accuser was lying, and the prosecutor who handled the case has been disbarred. (Sept. 29)
 

—————————————-

State prosecutors determined in April the accuser’s story was a
lie, and North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper called the
three players innocent victims of Nifong’s “tragic rush to
accuse.”
Nifong was disbarred in June for more than two dozen violations
of the state bar’s rules of professional conduct, including
withholding results of critical DNA tests, and resigned from
office.
[Notes:ANCHOR VOICE]

Duke University President Richard Brodhead
apologized Saturday for not better supporting the men’s lacrosse
players falsely accused in last year’s highly publicized rape
scandal.

Brodhead, speaking at the university’s law school, said he regretted Duke’s “failure to reach out” in a “time of extraordinary peril” after a woman accused three players of raping her at a March 2006 party thrown by the team

 
EnemyAce88
If he was really sorry he would have fired all those professors who were calling the players rapists before they were tried.

Sadly the only way to show regret is for the 88 to take responsibility and have consequences. The only hit in lawsuits was to the school’s endowment fund. Many of the media who followed along went on to do it again and kept their jobs. A good example of how to do it right was Ed Bradley who followed the facts and reported them and sadly it was a rare example.

What pisses me off more than anything about this case is that false accuser was not charged with any crime. It is a crime to falsely press charges against anyone but she was given a free pass. If i were one of her victims I would have sued her to the very end.

The fault rests with Nifong. Maybe she is a bad person, maybe just a crazy person, I don’t know. HE is supposed to know better. As I don’t know what her mental health is like, I am not going to assume she should be punished. She contradicted herself about ten times, and he should have known. I’m glad that these kids had the ability to to get the truth out and keep themselves from being further harmed. If it happened to some other kids, it could have been so much worse.

What Bernie is describing is referred to as the cycle of poverty. When african american people talk about the systemic issues surrounding poverty and incarceration, this is precisely what they mean. It just keeps looping. What’s sad is if we got decent work for people stuck in this system, it would have a substantial impact on the American economy. You’d have millions new people who are paying taxes and restoring economic prosperity. What a pity we can’t figure out how to get along for long enough to make things better and get out of our own way.

It’s not just about keeping people locked up, though. It’s also important to give the people a positive outlook on their lives after they have rightfully spent their time in prison. Free education, the option of getting degrees, doing internships, being a vital part of society even during their imprisonment is important to prevent them from becoming criminals again because let’s face it – if you spent years in prison without work experience no one is going to hire you, which not only means you can’t earn your income and therefore create tax money for the country, but you’re also likely to get imprisoned again and COST tax money. The cycle needs to be broken. Take a look at the scandinavian countries’ prison system. It works.

MISCARRIAGES OF JUSTICE: EGREGIOUS CASES

Unfortunately, real life doesn’t much resemble carefully crafted murder mystery fiction, where the bad guys always trip up in the end and the good guys always go free.

Nor are defense attorneys always dedicated (or even competent), or prosecutors always serving the cause of justice.

23 year long study conducted by the University of Michigan Law School and the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law, released in 2012, documented more than 2,000 cases of the miscarriage of justice during that time, while admitting there are likely many more that have slipped through the cracks.

The causes for these failures of the criminal justice system boil down to bad lawyering, crooked or incompetent forensic science, and witness misidentification (often mistaken identity) or just plain lies.

For example, the sad case of Randall Dale Adams highlighted issues of prosecutorial malfeasance and perjury during his original 1976 trial that got him sent to death row for the murder of a Dallas police officer during a routine traffic stop. Adams’ execution was stayed just three days before it was carried out when the Supreme Court determined procedural issues in the trial raised questions of reasonable doubt. Documentary filmmaker Errol Morris investigated the case while making the film The Thin Blue Line, and discovered new evidence of Adams’ innocence. Randall Adams was finally freed after twelve and a half years in prison in 1989.

Listed here are 10 outrageous cases of injustice. No one really knows how many there really are, but one estimate from the UM study puts the figure at 5% of all convictions. It could, the researchers admit, be higher. In several of these cases there are further aggravating factors of pure prejudice – antisemitism in the notorious Dreyfus Affair, and racism against African-Americans in others. Which would provide yet another avenue for the gross miscarriage of justice having to do with the jury rather than incompetence or fraud from forensics investigators, malfeasance of lawyers and prosecutors, mistaken eyewitness accounts or simple lies – perjury.

Randall Adams died last October at the age of 61 from a brain tumor. He had a difficult time after his release. As he was not given a pardon, he was not eligible for compensation for wrongful imprisonment.
GJC Synths
@skydark Well, although I do see your point, I guess we’ll agree to disagree, sort of. If the death penalty was abolished, which IMO it should be, my stance/opinion would do a 180°. Too many “guilty” people, convicted on circumstantial (& even false/planted/tampered, etc) evidence, & even “confessions”, have via DNA been exonerated, sometimes after having served decades in prison! Reasonable doubt aside, You can never be 100% sure of guilt, or IMO @ least not enough to execute a person.
GJC Synths
@Deneac6301 Key word “INNOCENT” &, YES, without question or doubt, I most certainly do. If a “gang” kidnapped & were going to murder you, would you not do any/everything in your power to save your life? To an innocent person on death row, it makes no difference if their “captors” are gang members or “prison guards”, or if their “illegal”, “murder”, is by a gang member’s 357 or prison officials “legally”, “execute” them. Innocent humans have a god given right to protect their life. CONTINUED
Marielle De León
This movie did not win any academy awards or was it nominated like they say here (it was disqualified because it ‘recreated’ events). It won the National Board of Review for best documentary and was eventually in 2001 added to the National Film Registry
skydark
@gjc82071 “IMO the execution of an innocent human being, is “murder”.” Any execution of a human being is murder. Also, if one is innocently imprisoned and shoots his way out, he should now be arrested for those crimes.
Yuri muckraker
wait the guys who did this documentary 50 ones to see before you died,got it wrong because I just read it didn’t get an Oscar.
GJC Synths
@Deneac6301 PART 2. That is why I am against the death penalty & if it were abolished, my formerly stated opinion would obviously change/reverse. Even if 1 innocent person out of 1 million is executed/”murdered”, the system is flawed. “Reasonable doubt” is not good enough when it comes to taking lives. Via DNA, people are constantly exonerated. Some after serving 20+yrs. How many innocent people have been murdered? @ least with a life sentence, you’ve a chance, but once your dead….*End*

@ gjc.. so u believe that if an innocent peson is placed on death row that, as a means of removing themselves from death row, it would be acceptable to take “whatever means necessary… including taking lives”??? that is ridiculous! I’m sure if you were their lawyer (because they would most def need one afterwards.. once back in the free word.. u would defend that person saying that if they hadn’t been wrongly placed there in the 1st place then they wouldn’t have had to take other innocent live
GJC Synths
I often wonder not only how many innocent people are in prison @ any given time, but how many are on death row & most importantly how many have been executed, or, “murdered”. IMO the execution of an innocent human being, is “murder”. I also believe that an “innocent” person, sentenced to prison or death, has a god given right to do whatever they can, any & EVERYTHING up to & including the taking of as many lives as necessary, to free themselves from their illegal captors/kidnappers/murderers.

This documentary made a big impact on me when I first saw it. Randall Adams would have never been freed if this documentary hadn’t been made. The scary thing was that the (almost certain) real killer wasn’t tried because he was a minor and couldn’t be executed, but Randall Adams was old enough – which is why he was indicted.

One of the most impressive documentaries ever. And Philip Glass’ music (what we hear in this trailer is “Metamorphosis Two”) is a perfect match which makes it exceptionally athmospheric and creates its artlike presence.

Finding this because the director is the father of Hamilton Morris the host of a new Tv show I enjoy. Had no clue his dad had so much skill as well

I can’t believe how easy is to take a man’s life. Feel sorry for Mr Adams. The execution was overturned 72 hours before the death penalty was done. Terrifying story.
Deborah Billick
This film set an innocent man free. Film making at its best.

Good people do not become cops.

After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or those not afforded proper representation.

One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who is sentenced to die in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Stevenson encounters racism and legal and political maneuverings as he tirelessly fights for McMillian’s life.

22 Jamie Foxx Reveals His Deeply Personal Connection to ‘Just Mercy”

Back to menu

9 jan. 2020

Jamie Foxx explained to Ellen why “Just Mercy,” the true story of attorney Bryan Stevenson’s dedication to exonerating wrongfully convicted people, is extremely personal because of a similar situation with his own father.

Walter McMillian
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walter “Johnny D.” McMillian (October 27, 1941 – September 11, 2013)[1] was a pulpwood worker from Monroeville, Alabama, who was wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to death. His conviction was wrongfully obtained, based on police coercion and perjury. In the 1988 trial, under a controversial Alabama doctrine called “judicial override”, the judge imposed the death penalty, although the jury had voted for a sentence of life imprisonment.

From 1990 to 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned down four appeals. In 1993, after McMillian had served six years on Alabama’s death row, the Court of Criminal Appeals reversed the lower court decision and ruled that he had been wrongfully convicted.

The controversial case received national attention beginning in the fall of 1992. Bryan Stevenson, McMillian’s defense attorney, raised awareness on the CBS News program 60 Minutes. Journalist Pete Earley covered it in his book Circumstantial Evidence: Death, Life, and Justice in a Southern Town (1995).[2] Stevenson featured this early case of his career in a TED talk and in his memoir Just Mercy (2014). This was adapted as an eponymous feature film, released in 2019. Jamie Foxx portrays McMillian and Michael B. Jordan stars as Stevenson.

All kind of unthinkeble failures are possible and will happen e.g.:
