Guilty until proven innocent

No one can imagine the feeling.

It seems like everywhere I look people who've been in jail for years are being let free due to DNA evidence proving them innocent. Can you imagine being put away for a crime you didn't commit? It's even more unfathomable being put to death for one. This is the best example of why people deserve a fair trial, despite what might seem as a slam dunk, guilty defendant. I'd rather have a guilty guy go free if it meant preventing an innocent guy from getting sentenced.

The numbers of people being let free are astonishing. And these are just the ones where DNA evidence is still available. 8 exonerated in New York state in the past 13 months. 12 exonerated in Dallas since 2001. According to the Georgia Innocence Project, 192 innocent people have been let free in the U.S.
