Well at least you switched from your insane, disingenuous "all" to a more simply ignorant "few" who may be innocent.
Wow.
Whatever.

I've never been arrested because I've never broken any laws.

Cry over the criminals all you want.

You share in the fundie inability to grasp basic causality.

Just because you never broke a law - you say, you're old enough to have violated anti sodomy statutes - says absolutely nothing whatsoever about the discussion: People who may have been wrongly arrested.

And we know such people exist in large numbers.

Now go have your friendly chat with the racist, anti Semitic, Lawrroshite, pedo, imo, friend. Your grasp of reality equals his, apparently.

This has little to do with the few people wrongly arrested; it's about excusing criminal behavior.

I was speaking about your clear, bizarre denial of reality.

You're actually a right winger, I gather, based on your severe denial that the criminal justice system is another corrupt, for profit, power mad, incompetent bureaucracy, and that recognizing that is not tantamount to claiming all arrested people are actually innocent.

Not to mention your friendliness with the racist, sexist, anti Semitic pedo here.

You'd gather incorrectly. I simply believe in following the law, and that in spite of the rare innocent person arrested, the overwhelming majority- 99.9%+ are indeed guilty. If you have any statistics which prove otherwise, feel free to provide them.

First of all, I bet you have broken some drug or sodomy law along the way.

99.9%? You're crazy when you make things up out of whole cloth. You can look at the stats for those on death row since the advent of widespread DNA testing to see how ignorant, lying and full of sht you are - and people on death row are the ones who supposedly went through the most rigorous, repetitive checks and balances.

Try the Innocence Project, moron.

You're basically Daniel P.

And what percentage are they of all total arrests/convictions? Less than 0.1%.

Yeah, I looked at your "innocence project". A whole 280 convictions overturned over a 22 year period. In the words of the Shawshank Redemption, "everybody in here is innocent, my lawyer f-d me......"

Hey moron, they're just getting started because they don't have unlimited money. They haven't looked at every - or even a significant percentage of - all cases.

And remember: Capital cases (supposedly) are the most double checked and vetted by the system. Whatever the error rate in those cases turns out to be, it will be far less than your ordinary, often slipshod or racist or arbitrary ones.

You are not an intellectually honest or terribly bright person and you never will be. How disgusting. You're as right wing and ignorant as any Tea Bagger.
