Take a good look at the chart above this. If you didn’t understand this reading my last post, then you missed the point. I am now going to clarify my thoughts on the United States judicial system so that even ignorant, biased, uneducated people can understand them.
I believe that race was a factor in the George Zimmerman case. There is certainly reason to believe this, but at the same time it cannot be proven either way. Everyone has their own separate opinion on that. However, my reason for believing this is based on statistics that do in fact prove there is a racism problem in our judicial system. This is backed up by a myriad of statistics and any way you shape it there is a huge disparity between the amount of whites incarcerated and the amount of blacks/minorities incarcerated. That is the issue that I was drawing attention to in my first post.
Now I would like to clarify my anti-innocent until proven guilty stance. As I said before, you could be 99% sure that someone committed a crime, and technically they would get away with it. For example, everybody and their mother knew that Barry Bonds took steroids, but because it could never be 100% proven he got away with it. Someone could be standing over a dead body with a gun and a gunshot in the body, but since he can’t be proven guilty he gets to walk free. Think about how many criminals get away with crimes because they are considered innocent all the way up to the point until you have 100% conclusive evidence. What I am proposing is a middle ground. If you are more than 50% sure that someone is guilty based on the evidence available, then they should be put in jail. If you just play the statistics you will be insured that system will be as accurate as possible.
Hopefully I made my points much clearer this time, seeing as the majority of you completely whiffed the first time around.
