The Modern State has Subverted Justice

Anyone who believes that "convicted of" always means "guilty of" is woefully ignorant of how our travesty of justice system works. Over 90% of felony cases in this country are settled by plea agreements, arbitrated behind closed doors between prosecutors who see more convictions as their tickets to stardom and court appointed "defense attorneys" who are, at best, overworked and indifferent. And have you SEEN the inside of a prison? Education? Health care? Oh, please!

You're right; America's justice system is broken. And it's people like the person who wrote this article, like the ones even now screaming for Casey Anthony's head on a pike, people who believe that accused always means guilty -- those people are already in charge.
