  7. I’ve seen the justice system work both ways, take the West Memphis Three …three innocent kids rushed through a trial found guilty of a crime they didn’t commit; or OJ found innocent. its not always right but if they have DNA from a discarded cup sounds like they have a case.

  8. I’m not a hypocrite I’m intelligent , beaver county is ten years behind the rest of this country . I have seen the justice system fail miserably more times than I can count on one hand . Convictions they could have easily had and dropped the ball .

  9. Ten years behind the rest of this country? You, obviously, have not traveled much. While BC might not be the most forward thinking area in the US, its no where near as behind as some.
