I hope that this Subject is approved and receives the Support it should have.
Please keep it civil and nice? It is just, maybe, the tip of an Iceburg throughout the World, where people are just thrown into Goal, (Jail) because they were selected for it by Government Officials.
Man 'jailed for crime he didn't commit'19:00 AEST Mon Jul 13 20093 hours 16 minutes ago.
Former Vancouver police officer Clyde Ray Spencer spent nearly 20 years in prison after he was convicted of sexually molesting his son and daughter. Now, the children say it never happened.
How would you honestly feel, in this situation?

To answer your question on how I'll feel if this happened to me, I guess it would bother me alot.

This Subject brought down the Queensland Government, in Australia, after things came out.

I won't go deep into the debate of false accusations of sexual abuse, as that's not the topic. I'd be out of my mind wanting revenge (in this case against the interrogator). And I'm a person who KNOWS that revenge and the wanting of it ultimately takes its toll on ME.
Nowadays, we know much more about how to question children about this sort of thing and who should be doing it.
I would hope I'd want to move on. And so far, it sounds like he is so happy to see his kids.

But it is still happening.
Person acussed has no chance, State will Win against all legal odds!

Just to add on exactly the same thing or similar has happened recently, the person accused is an immigrant from Ghana who was just drafted into the MLS (American Football League/Soccer League) and is fully innocent of the accused rape, the court has been shown evidence that proves his innocence but has still given him a 6 year prison sentence, I don't know if it is me but it seems to be a choice fully on the colour of his skin? because the evidence proves it to be a white male who is the prosecutors boyfriend, so it seems racism is in a place you wouldn't expect.
Here's a video on Youtube where I heard about it, go to about 0:50 on the video until about 1:55 to hear about it - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz1czFXO3yc...re=channel_page
Plus here is a link of the Story - http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/news/story?id=4300383
It truly is a sad story that this gifted person who looked like he was going to have a career in Sport has now got a 6 year prison sentence for something he hasn't done, what takes the biscuit is that they believed evidence from the prosecutor he "didn't" rape who had a blood alcohol level that could have nearly killed her.
I do have to wonder sometimes what level of idiocy does this Planet have on it, similar to the saying quoted in my sig below
“Programming Today Is A Race Between Software Engineers Stirring To Build Bigger And Better Idiot-Proof Programs, And The Universe Trying To Produce Bigger And Better Idiots. So Far, The Universe Is Winning.”

Is it a travesty? absolutely! Will it keep happening? undoubtedly!

Maybe? This could shed some light on when people get caught out, particularly Polititions??
They think that they are beyond the Law?
Not in Queensland, Australia.
From way back, when the worm turned and people turned.
That bought the Government down.
Imagine the Innocent people like JC that have been wrongly convicted and executed?
What is that called? I call it Murder.
No wonder so many are against the Death Penalty?
We were taught that one Innocent is too many. That is supposed to be Justice?
Surely not History?
Can anyone ignore the Mistakes, admit that they do, then insist on the Death Penalaty?
That would show a character that is scarey.

"Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying."
The conviction of someone who is innocent causes pain and that pain is shared by all. In fact, the pain of false convictions often makes people turn away, because it hurts to look at it.

Many years ago I was accused for some thing I did not do.
Eventually that bought a Government down, in a really big way, because I refused to give up.
Some people just NEVER give up.
Hence my Saying in my Signature.

I think that this says it all?
Background to it from 20 years ago and also how rife corruption is.

What would people Honestly call this?
Botched execution leaves prisoner, Romell Broom, sobbing. (AP)
A tearful prisoner tried to assist with his own death after executioners spent two hours sticking a poison-filled syringe into his body during a botched killing.
Onlookers claimed that US death row prisoner Romell Broom appeared to be sobbing after one of many attempts to access his veins.
After more than two hours of injections, Broom’s lawyer sought a reprieve for his client, saying any further execution attempts “would be cruel and unusual punishment”.
The death by lethal injection was stayed for a week. Broom will face the same lethal injection procedure at that time.
Ohio’s execution laws require lethal injections to be “quick and painless”.
Broom was sentenced to death in an Ohio jail for the rape and murder of 14-year-old girl Tryna Middleton in Cleveland in 1984.
This is really Sick.
Bloke has been on Death Row since 1984, that is 25 years! Then he get's this sort of a Muck up, only to be lined up for the same thing in a week? That is just totally wrong. I believe in the old Days, when most Countries had the Death Penalty, something like that would have resulted in him walking away as a free Man.
