I just finished watching the news and I am upset. Here in MS there was a guy arrested a few days ago for texting a twelve (12) year old girl for sex. This guy got out of jail this morning because the arresting officer forgot to sign the warrant. It just ain't right. A few years ago a guy in north MS was set loose on the same grounds after he committed rape, thats right the worst thing that can be done, and he went home cause a guy forgot to sign something. It just ain't right. Don't get me wrong, I love this country and think most of our laws that are set in place to protect people are good, but this ain't right. I have heard stories about people that kill others but don't go to prison for years because their high price lawyers keep finding ways to delay things. I am wondering would it be possible to get a cop on your side and set up the unsigned paper? I am friends with a lot of the cops here and even kin with some, so maybe I should start a crime spree, get someone to "lose" some important evidence or something. Anyway, we have people that blog from other countries so I was wondering, do y'all have these laws that will let people get away with anything if all the I's aren't dotted or the T's crossed, or do your laws go the other way and people that are not guilty end up going to jail just because they aren't liked by the cops. I would like to hear how things work in other places as well as other Americans ranting. It can't be just me that thinks it just ain't right.---Tom

It's the same over here,some people are being put away for murder, for only a few years. They call it Life, huh! The life of what? A milk carton? Then after a few years they are let out...sooner, if they have been 'good' in prison. That aint right either. Some innocent people DO end up in jail, by mistake. And others , who deserve it, ARE put away via false evidence. I think it must be the same, the world over.

I agree Tom, its not right. We have a very similar legal system here in Oz and we often see criminals get off because so minuscule procedure was not followed through. How crazy does it get when you can get sued if a burglar can get compensation if they hurt themselves on your property while they are there committing a crime. Its a bit like the worlds gone mad at times.


Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

I completely agree that it's not right. I also feel that I'd be pretty pi$$ed off if I were held in a jail cell for ANY amount of time, with no good reason. I am only glad that the charge only involved texting. We have to uphold the letter of the law, no matter the consequences. If we don't, our country is no better than any other. And we all know that's not true. -True P.S. But it still sucks.
