The Justice System, in most countries is probably the scariest real life horror!
This post isn’t going to be necessarily the hundreds of thousands of misjustices that the justice’s systems perturbates onto people. That’s why these posts are called theories, in reality, I think the whole Justice system in most countries should be just overturned. There are so many flaws and problems.
I am a huge crime show fanatic and the biggest reason I love them, is because 95% of the time, justice does happen in some form or another.
One of the more disturbing shows that I’ve been watching recently, is a show about how people who have been let out on bail, or parole, end up killing, hurt, assaulting someone while out on parole. What they take a look at, is to see what these previous people have done and why they were let out too begin with…What disturbs me, is that I have no clue why they were even out on parole. You’ve got serial killers and rapists, out on parole. Yet, Joe down the way, is in jail for life, no parole, because he got caught with Canabis three times.
Then they complain that they have to let these serial rapists and killers out, because the jails are overfilled … Uh, let Joe out.
The show is based on Australian crime, and as such, we apparently have three (3) levels of whose considered a risk, so there is: Low, Medium and High.
As one of the parents roughly said (whose daughter was killed by a rapist out on bail). “It’s the word risk that bothers me. It doesn’t matter the level of risk, if anyone is a risk, even if they’re a low risk. It means they’re still a risk to the public.”
The other program that I watched, years ago, was about the “West Memphis Three“. The case was about three boys, under 10 (I think) were killed in 1993. Three teenage boys were charged with their murders, and found guilty. Now the whole thing about this case, there was no evidence that the three teenagers killed the boys, and weren’t anywhere near them at the time of their deaths. But they MUST have done it, because they were ‘into’ Satanism.
“And without substantial physical evidence, police zeroed in on a pair of teens they knew well: Echols, a self-professed Wiccan who wore all black and read Stephen King, and his best friend Baldwin, who was considered an outsider because of his love of drawing and bands like Metallica.“
In the beginning, everyone believed that the teenagers had done it. But in the end, even the families of the boys murdered, didn’t believe they had done it. Even though, it was pretty obvious that a lot of people believe in their innocence. All the “Justice System” could offer after decades in jail, and knowing that Damien Echols, was close to being put to death.
Was not a re-retrial, what they offered was a deal. They plead guilty to the murders, the three now adults, get freedom. But they can’t sue anyone, they can’t do anything really, other than get “Freedom”.
“The Alford plea is a seldom-invoked and somewhat confusing legal maneuver, but the basics are fairly straightforward. Essentially, it allows the accused to assert their innocence while pleading guilty, conceding that the prosecution has an overwhelming amount of evidence to procure a conviction.“
How screwed is a system, that they don’t want to even consider relooking at the murders of three children, under the age of 10? They would rather stroke their egos instead. Even with the WM3 “released” the case is still considered close, so no one can look into it and WM3 are legally still accused of murdering them.
And these are just TWO cases. It would be a never ending blog.
Don’t even get me started on how, in the UK, in 2021…That “legally” rape is only, when its done with a penis. Even though when you read the legal definition for women literally raping. Though they don’t use the word rape in the definition. There are words and terms like “forced” and “non-consensual” So…you know…rape. Although there was a young girl, I think she might have been 15, maybe younger, who was charged with rape.
