yes it does happen that a VERY FEW innocent get convicted, BUT a lot of guilty get set free also look at O.J. Simpson as an example

i think they should go back on these old cases and redo some of the DNA stuff to make sure they got the right people

D N A does not lie! To many guilty have been released before D N A. I'd love to see the public hangings come back. If crime continues to esclate harsh death penaltys will prevail. WONDERFUL!

Why did it take 28 years to finally get an execution date. We should not keep them on death row for more than 10 years. The families are tortured as they wait for closure.
