I am all for imparting justice and seeing to it that offenders, rapists, killers pay for the crimes they have committed. Somewhere I feel that restitution is probable in some cases, so strongly. I have started sympathizing with the ones who were driven by circumstances and had a psychological fallout due to their imperilious upbringing. We, as a society have failed. If there are people who are ready to risk the good for a bad dream lasting a lifetime, it’s on us.
But what about sending someone to jail for a crime they did not commit?
What about the lives lost in confinement for the blames they never were a part of?
That’s the worst thing that could happen to a human being. Pain is a reality check for the victim and the perpetrator but when a judge, wrongfully convicts, unknowingly so… Society fails bigtime.
Between a flaw and a controversy, I want our legal system to be so flawless and so non controversial that no human has the right to decide on another.
Forensics and technology should be bettered and policing system, the basics should be fundamentally strong. I know how hard it is to doubt while convicting someone, knowing somewhere that there is that one percent which is going to take away your sleep and someone else’s. That unbankable one percent. Inscrutable deal. The loss of a win.
I cried when I watched a heartbreaking episode on Forensic Files called “Crime Seen” from 1998.
No amount, words, nothing can justify lost years and the emotional stigma of a man wronged. What misfortune could have befallen that a man’s bad luck is driven by another man and what about those men, who have never been exonerated, never gotten justice, because we simply don’t know.
So many of the free men, men without a bad seed in their mind having died a dog’s death, forgotten and unforgiven, for a crime committed by someone who has gone to live a normal life or kept on sinning. You can judge people for putting pineapple on pizzas and for whoring themselves out, but if you want to become a judge, embrace blood on your hands. There’s a high probability that you will misjudge atleast once a week and I don’t have statistics to support these claims but if I did, I would be wrong to say once a week. It would probably be everyday once. One wrongful conviction per judge is equal to a disastrous tsunami hitting the gold coast everyday and killing one fourth of the population. I would be ashamed. I would be riddled with guilt. I am a sensitive personal and I value justice so much that god forgive, I become a judge and hold the wrong reigns for someone innocent. I want to be on the other side of the dias, fighting in what I believe in and losing rather than winning a seat on the dock and failing humanity even once with gross miscarriage of Justice. Who gave me permission to put someone in confinement who doesn’t deserve it?
I know this is tricky. I know this is blown out of proportion. But my law degree has a fallacy and even the most ruthless of crimes cannot find an equivocation with how fucked up this issue is. Freedom is essence of innocence and when you take that away by a four page judgement which took an hour to write. By being a judge, I will certainly misjudge. And my conscience will be better off with being called a prickly pricey lawyer or someone who forgo her law degree for writing.
Every question meted out to me will be answerable. But not as to how I feel after 30 years about a wrongful conviction. I cannot even blame the jury. One wronged justice can take away the peace and pride of my soul for every correct sentencing ever.
Because I believe in Astrology and karma, I’ll never be able to wash these hands which doesn’t really have blood marks on them. There’s no blood, and I’ll be washing away my hands. Peeling away my skin in search for blood but because this situation is so code red that this invisible redness will kill me.
I cannot risk my soul for a seat on the dias for power, respect and an aftermath of a law degree vouching for an occupation in the judiciary.
I don’t think judges have the right to send an innocent person to jail and a hundred wronged men going free is still bearable but a justice wronged is a justice not worthy of humanity.
If you haven’t heard about Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, a former boxer and exoneree who became a strong advocate for the wrongly convicted, go hear him out.
I was watching Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four which anyone who wants to become a judge should watch. You’ll begets what I mean.
James Richardson was a citrus picker in Florida who was convicted of the deaths of his seven children in 1968 by poisoning them. Time Simply Passes follows his conviction, miraculous release in 1989.
Amanda Knox was an American foreign exchange student in Perugia, Italy, who was wrongly convicted, along with her then-boyfriend, of killing her roommate in what prosecutors speculated was a sex act gone wrong.
This list goes on…
I don’t care if Amanda was a killer or not, but if she didn’t kill and she was in, you have failed the victim and another innocent being.
