innocence

The presumption of innocence is a cornerstone of the American legal system and a right that should not be taken for granted.

    Reason First: Should Newly  Released Oklahoman Corey Atchison Be Bitter?

    Reason First: Should Newly Released Oklahoman Corey Atchison Be Bitter?

    Wrongfully convicted individuals must face a new day. While some harbor animosity and anger for the years that they stayed under the watchful eye of the law, people like Tulsa Oklahoma native Corey Atchison expressed only the joy of being granted liberty. With new insights into cases, the number of people freed from prison continues to go on so that justice may be served. Whether it’s through DNA or another look at the particular matter, the way that men and women have been released from the confines of cell walls speaks to a system that is imperfect.

    Becoming Who You Are

    Becoming Who You Are

    Firstly, I am not a blogger; this was apparently made clear when I was a blogger. Second, everything in my life has been awarded to me via my own personal choices. How fruitful they have been. Finally, I will be writing many parts to this specific topic, and some you will find inspiring, while others you may find disturbing. Either way I will illicit an emotional response, and I ask that you maintain your composure and remove the plank from your eye before trying to remove my speck. In other words DON'T BE SO QUICK TO JUDGE ANOTHER WITHOUT FIRST JUDGING YOURSELF IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR OWN SET OF PARAMETERS!

    Reason First: Is Kim Kardashian-West the Unlikely Aid to Emancipation?

    Reason First: Is Kim Kardashian-West the Unlikely Aid to Emancipation?

    What Kim Kardashian-West is doing in terms of laying the groundwork for releasing non-violent “criminals,” who are serving time for drug charges, could speed the end of the narcotics prohibition. Her willingness to not only sacrifice her time and money, but to invest her resources in a cause that she is selfishly involved, is a plus. For a young woman much maligned for her vanity driven nature, Mrs. Kardashian-West has displayed a genuine and proper interest in seeking justice for these individuals.

    The Devil Is in the Fine Print

    The Devil Is in the Fine Print

    Always read the fine print. It's common sense advice from people who have been burned by not adhering to the advice they now espouse. One man, Dmitry Agarkov, decided he was sick of the restrictive limits the bank put on their customers and wanted to turn the tables on them. After reviewing his agreement, he added some terms in the fine print. This led to a face off with the bank.

    Stay Informed

    Stay Informed

    At age 19, I was arrested for possession of less than a gram of marijuana—0.4 grams to be exact. Almost two years later, my suspicions of just how ineffective and exploitative the American judicial system can be were confirmed. At least to a degree. Without trying to justify the use of illicit substances, allow me to set the stage and give you some perspective.

    Execute the Innocent

    Execute the Innocent

    "There's always such a rush to judgment. It makes a fair trial hard to get," John Grisham has said. In his one and only true crime book, The Innocent Man, he proved that this was true. In that book, Grisham explores the case that saw Ron Williamson nearly being executed for crimes that he didn't commit. As the hours clocked down, his life literally hung in the balance because someone wanted a conviction, no matter what the cost was.

    What Happens to the Children of Famous Criminals?

    What Happens to the Children of Famous Criminals?

    In most true crime books, or movies about serial killers, the story ends when the criminal gets sent to prison. For most people, this is true. The perp will no longer be claiming the lives of innocent victims, robbing them, or otherwise harming innocent people. Their reign of terror is done for the most part.

    Subway Nightmare

    You ever had a bad dream where you knew your life was in danger? You try to get away but the fear is somehow still chasing you. The adrenaline you feel, your heart pumping—you somewhat wake up and realize it was all a dream. But this wasn’t a dream. This was in my face and I was being tested by life. You dream of these scenarios and you try your best to somehow prepare yourself for that. But it is true that once it is unfolding before your eyes you really don’t know how it would turn out to be. This is how my worst dream came true for $2.75.

    Is a Murderer Always a Murderer?

    Is a Murderer Always a Murderer?

    Why do people kill? Is every murder a result of aggression? Or are some an act of mercy? Just under half of all murders are a result of an argument, a revenge attack, or a loss of temper. Then there are the premeditated cases where people plan for months how to commit the "perfect" crime and then others who act sporadically and simply can’t help but do the inhuman acts that they do. However, is there another category of killer?
