Update 2020: I have switched gears and am focused on educating people about their legal rights regarding emergency executive orders and all of the unlawful mandates. Mandates are not laws and are unenforceable. They are presented as “temporary emergency laws” and officials deceptively use terms such as “required” and “mandatory” but they are not. Governors and health directors can not write laws, only the legislative bodies can do that. The mandates violate the constitution of the US and your state. They also violate civil rights laws. The constitution is NOT suspended, even during an emergency. Know your rights. Stand your ground. Fight the tyranny or we will never regain our freedom.
Wrongful convictions are more common than many realize — evidenced by the increased number of exonerations each year since the advent of DNA testing. What many don’t realize is that they don’t typically occur because of mistakes. Rather, they are a result of shoddy and dishonest police investigations, unethical prosecutors willing to charge and convict people without evidence, and biased judges — many of whom are former police officers and prosecutors.
While researching questionable cases, I have yet to encounter a case that was handled honestly and professionally. Instead, I see coerced witnesses, destroyed evidence, “lost” evidence, mishandled evidence, tunnel vision and the outright framing of innocent people. There is no recourse for those caught up in this. The best lawyers can do little against the U.S. justice system and innocent people continue to be convicted every day. So while it is wonderful that innocent people are exonerated (thanks to innocence groups), nothing in the justice system is really changing to prevent wrongful convictions. As a result, it keeps happening. I can’t think of many things worse than an innocent person suffering in prison.
Update: Brad Cooper will be released from prison on November 23, 2020 and will return to his family home in Canada.
