A bit dated at this point, but....
When the WM3 were released I saw someone comment on CNN that they were obviously guilty because anyone who was innocent wouldn't accept an Alford plea but would instead wait for a new trial and for the system to work. Yeaaah... nevermind that their first "fair trial" where the system "worked" sent them to prison for 18 years despite their obvious innocence. I mean, we all know that only the innocent would wait for another court date when they were already wrongly convicted once and only the guilty would take just about any deal to get out of prison after spending half their lives in prison.

Damian was on death row, Jason only accepted it to get him out of there. He wasn't on board at first.

CNN comments make mr want to blow up cell phone towers, cable lines, telephone lines, best buys, apple stores....

If I was incarcerated for 18 years, I would do/say/sign anything to get out and put my penis into a female.

I've been reading the side of "guilty" as well, and people are nuts. They somehow have way more information and evidence than was ever presented by the prosecution. And of course the Paradise Lost documentaries were biased (of what exactly, i dont know) and didn't show the whole case.

thats what people on that side say at least.

the books too, written on the subject, are total liberal media fabrications

Yeah, must be why even in Memphis they mustered a grand total of two people to protest a benefit show for the WM3. Great show, too... and to this day the lack of protest makes me smile.

Most people develop their opinions on these things through articles written by people who have no qualifications to influence public opinion on the matter. For instance- I read an entire three newspaper articles on Casey Anthony, and I'm completely sure she's guilty.

If you look into the sources on which many of these writers drew, its always third hand bullshit, because there's too much mind numbing information in first hand sources.

The most appalling shit I've seen thus far are judges and governors refusing to admit DNA evidence for guys who have been in prison for decades. Mike Easley, in my state, refused to release a guy who had been cleared by DNA evidence. Didn't even give a reason for it. So many innocent men are behind bars simply because some dumb broad cried rape on them. I think so much DNA evidence is turned down simply because so many innocent people were railroaded into jail unfairly.

I think there are a ton of circumstances where the public wants to play armchair scientist and they heard the phrase "DNA evidence" and make up their minds. People really do watch too much CSI.

Skin under fingernails, semen, they do a pretty good job of proving where you were and what you were doing. But just because skin wasn't found under fingernails and there was no semen doesn't prove you innocent.

They really don't want to open old cases. And I can't say I blame them. They can't retry you if you were already found innocent, so it kind of seems logical that it should work both ways. And if they let every asshole who claimed he was innocent and found a lawyer who thought he had a ten million dollar lawsuit on his hands get a second crack at it, nothing would ever get done. Its just really unfortunate when innocent people fall through the cracks

But if the DNA that is there doesn't match yours...

and it does match the guy you tapped on the shoulder yesterday to let him know he dropped his wallet, but noone ever thinks to check him, and your rapist was fully clothed, and you just plain didn't manage to scratch him even though you said you fought him off best you could...

we can play the what if game all day.

The fact of the matter is, you woke up this morning and started your day with the general assumption that the american justice system is an antiquated mess of lazy, racist and police officers who will do anything for a conviction, and that most crimes are just misunderstandings and hiccups resulting from disparities in income and quality of living

I woke up and started my day with the assumption that the vast majority of the people who are in prison are criminals who made a concious choice to prey on their fellow man instead of contributing to society and they should be forced to work off their burden to the taxpayer or taken out back and shot.

Which wouldn't leave DNA under your fingernails or semen... at least when I tap someone on the shoulder, anyway.

if she had long pointy nails and he had sleeveless shirt on... i'm not kidding, we could go on all day

just because you don't have dna evidence putting someone in some place doesn't mean he wasn't in that place.

if she had a load in her that doesn't match, thats one thing. but some of these requests are a little bit on the tenuous side
