Why do so many american's convict people who have been found innocent?
how would you like it if it happened to you. in the last 20 years, the US has become a frightening country , between the love of money and power and the way people convict others without any real proof. very sad.
Why??? actually the answer is "Simple" ---- we have not learned the importance of "non-judgement" .... we cling to outdated traditional points of view and traditional B.S. ...... it is time we stepped out of tradition and learned to "give up the struggle to survive and learn to love life and love living."
Judgement is harmful to developing character.... it is "time we stopped looking outside ourselves for change and to build a new man from the inside out."
Time we went back to ZERO and with lessons long since learned and step out of kindergarten.
You would have to give a case in point to get any kind of meaningful answer.
Often the public knows things that the jury never hears so while very few of us don't believe that OJ did it the jury wasn't convinced. But we still do, and probably always will, believe he is guilty.
Of course it goes both ways. There was a man convicted for growing marijuana in federal court. The jury was never allowed to hear that he only had a few plants and were led to believe he had a vast farm. The jury was never allowed to hear that he was growing it under contract to the County of Oakland for research. The judge in that case blocked all evidence that would have gotten him an innocent verdict.
Some might say that we shouldn't be judgmental but that is really just a cop out. Should we not judge Hitler, Stalin, Poe Pot, W Bush or countless others? Should we not judge sex offenders or pedophiles?
The fact is that life is really one big judgment and we have to make calls everyday. Calls about people and things and we tend to be cautious, for good reason. It is usually better to be harsh in that judgment than lenient, better safe than sorry.
At best we can try to be well educated but we will always be judging everyone and everything around us. That is a good thing.
The answer is simple and tragic. First there was a ursurping of common law and that was replaced by Admiralty law which gave them the power to put whatever law they wanted in the book with no backing.
Second thing you have to understand is that prisons are corporate institutions designed to make money off of housing people and forcing them into labor. They are not there to improve peoples lives, make them better, or do anything for them. Any services they offer is just a mask or trick if you will to make you think you are getting something when in fact you are not.
Now that you understand these two principles it is simple, the corporations want more inmates so they can be paid more money. They pay for politicians campaigns and reward them with money, whores, drugs, whatever they want as do the elite and other corporations (this is a fact look it up if you don't believe me). These politicians pass laws, judges enforce this admiralty law, and the corporations profit. The worst case of this was recently a judge was found to have taken thousand of dollars to put children in a prison even if they were innocent so the prison could make more money. (look it up)
So you see it isn't a matter of justice, or right and wrong, or any of those good concepts it is about making money and they make a ton of money off this whole racket.
I think the Media is to blame for convicting people of crimes even before the facts are layed out.
I do believe our press is driven by money and greed, with no thought to truth and justice. Add the fact that most people let others make up their minds on most subjects, and you have what has become.

I saw the police shooing the homeless away from a shopping center where they were asking for money..Driving through a shopping center parking lot today, I noticed three or four people holding signs begging for money. A few minutes later I saw the police shooing them away. How do you feel about this?
