Record Prisoner Exonerations Last Year

The Daily Sheeple reports on something I saw a couple mentions of lately: Last year saw the highest number of exonerations of people released from prison because they were proven innocent. I suppose that's good news, although I'm skeptical of the term "proven".

Just because a court convicts someone of something doesn't mean they did it. Just because they're acquitted doesn't mean they didn't. That probably applies while they're in jail just as it does in court.

When police officers and so-called experts lie on the stand, and prosecuting attorneys withhold evidence, I'm inclined to believe there's a witch hunt. Those people should do jail time for subverting our justice system.
