Seriously. A $2 round will have it done in seconds.

Only 30% of people who are put on death penalty actually get executed. I never even thought about women vs. men, though.

Most recently James Holmes. The man that shot up the Aurora movie theater.

But aside from a case that is pretty much airtight (yaknow, caught him at the scene and all, not after weeks or months of investigation)... what does one consider absolute certainty?

I looked it up when the jodi case started...I feel like if Caseys case was not a DP case, she may have been convicted...I think more people have sympathy for women.

Oh, man... there was this crazy case I watched a video about...



This guy was convicted for a series of bank robberies, despite the video evidence that showed that the man that robbed the bank was not only left handed (while the accused was right handed), but also that he had tattoos on his hands/wrists that the man that was convicted did not have.



Let me see if I can find it... just some interesting shit that I always think about when we're talking about "without a doubt" and whatnot.

OH MY GOD! Our justice system is so flawed its like sometimes they just want someone to do time or give a false sense of justice to those who were wronged whether its the actual guilty party or not.

Absolutely.



Took some awesome classes that focused a lot on that. Fascinating (and sometimes horrifying) shit.
