"It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
William Blackstone in his seminal work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, published in the 1760s
We have lost that. Today in the era of "Mass Incarceration" there are NO innocent people. EVERYBODY is guilty of something to at a minimum maintain the revenue stream. The only persons who have no GUILT are the "absolutely immune" Police Officer (Briscoe v. LaHue, 460 U.S. 345 (1983)) who gives "knowingly false testimony," the"malicious or dishonest" "absolutely immune" Prosecutor that withholds "evidence favorable to an accused" (Imbler v. Pachtman, 424 U. S. 428 (1976) and Connick v Thompson 2011) and the "malicious or corrupt" "absolutely immune" Judges (Pierson v. Ray, 386 U.S. 554 (1967)) who turn a blind eye to it all!!!!
We can find a way to INCARCERATE anybody, anytime anywhere!!!!!!!! "We do not need no stinking evidence!"
Do NOT let anybody tell you the Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott or Freddie Gray issues are about RACE. They all unluckily or luckily (?) got noticed by the media for one reason their Constitutional inalienable rights were withheld AND THEY DIED.
Constitutional Rights FOR THE LIVING are not worth the parchment they were written on. I do not care what color or how much money you have! "Malicious or corrupt" "absolutely immune" Judges turn a blind eye to the "absolutely immune" Police Officer who gives "knowingly false testimony" and the "malicious or dishonest" "absolutely immune" Prosecutor that withholds said "evidence favorable to an accused."
And there AIN'T DAM THING you can do about it!!!!!
Every LIVING PERSON either pays through the nose, to maintain the "revenue stream," or goes to jail!!!!!!! "We the People" have been forced into "Mass Incarceration" without access to our constitutional SECURITY for inalienable rights!!!
IT IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We APPARENTLY need a constitutional amendment to END the judicial sanction of malice, corruption, dishonesty, sincere ignorance, conscientious stupidity and Incompetence
 The Bill of Rights does not require "'difficult problems of proof,' and we must adhere to a "stringent standard of fault," lest municipal liability under §1983 collapse into respondeat superior.12 Bryan County, 520 U. S., at 406, 410; see Canton, 489 U. S., at 391–392."(CONNICK, DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ET AL. v. THOMPSON)
Any violation of rights secures for the INDIVIDUAL person "where a specific duty is assigned by law, and individual rights depend upon the performance of that duty, it seems equally clear that the individual who considers himself injured has a right to resort to the laws of his country for a remedy" (Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 167 (1803)) and "it is a general and indisputable rule that where there is a legal right, there is also a legal remedy by suit or action at law whenever that right is invaded." (Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 164 (1803))
