Oh my gosh. This is funny.

Here is a thought provoking article on the Presumption of Innocence. Does anyone think it really exists?

If these types of allegations are true, it is the type of conduct that might cause a jury to render a very large punitive verdict. What if you learned a unapproved  product was put in your body? 
A federal lawsuit filed under the Racketeering and Corrupt Organizations Act claims Boston Scientific conspired to use counterfeit plastic in their transvaginal mesh implant products. Transvaginal mesh is used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence. It has become an increasingly controversial product in recent years due to safety concerns.

More bogus "scientific" evidence. When will we stop rushing to aid the prosecutor. We are on a truth seeking mission.

I asked the other day, what is it worth if you spent 26 years in jail for a crime you did not commit?

This is incredible. How on earth, as inhabitants, can we treat our home this way. It disgusts me. I am not fanatical on recycling but i am a firm believer in it. 
About 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the world's waterways every year.

How much would you want if you spent 20 years in prison for a crime you did not commit? 
The Los Angeles City Council agreed yesterday to pay a total of $24.3 million to settle a pair of wrongful conviction cases filed by two men who each served over two decades in prison for murders they did not commit. The council voted in favor of paying $16.7 million to resolve a lawsuit filed by Kash Delano Register, who spent 34 years in prison after he was arrested and wrongly convicted of killing a man in West Los Angeles while 18-years-old.
