It's happening again.
The Innocence Project, http://www.innocenceproject.org/
cites official misconduct as one of the leading contributors to wrongful convictions. This misconduct has included:
â¢deliberate suggestiveness in identification procedures
â¢the withholding of evidence from defense
â¢the deliberate mishandling, mistreatment or destruction of evidence
â¢the coercion of false confessions
â¢the use of unreliable government informants or snitches
In Rockford Illinois, where the justice system failed Alan Beaman, Richard Wanke has been held for months for a crime in which witnesses had seen him elsewhere and police had to be persuaded to interview them!
For months, police have held two impounded vehicles, yet have not done any trace evidence testing on these vehicles. Why? Because failure to find such evidences would exonerate the man they've decided to find guilty.
