    Letting people steal with almost zero consequences in some cases isn't the answer either.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    "I am talking about people not convicted of a crime and presumed innocent. You are assuming guilt of all accused, which the system explicitly does the opposite."
    Ok statistician, what percentages of those in jail are innocent?

    The estimate is 2-10%.

    I’m not trying to be a cock, here, truly. I get that people don’t think there is as big a problem. I think most people think the facts come out and you get your day in court and you wouldn’t plea unless guilty. (There is a good book on that isn’t the case.)

    Instead, charges are “stacked” to assure a plea, they will add even more charges if you ask for a trial, public defenders don’t have the time or funding to go to trial, and judges are often annoyed and irritated if there actually is a trial. Meanwhile, your income determines whether or not you’re free in the meantime.

    This isn’t the way it should work and so think you as a conservative would agree “law and order” isn’t about punishing the innocent to nab as many guilty as possible. The incentives shouldn’t be high conviction rates at the lowest cost, but a system that seeks truth, doesn’t punish you for exercising your fundamental rights, nor where income determines whether or not you stay in jail while presumed innocent.

    I don’t mean to be prickly about it, so I apologize.
