The exoneration of Kash Register and the problem of false eyewitness testimony..

This is a painful reminder of the flaws in our justice system. As good as it is, and a model for fairness in many ways, any system that enabled the jailing of innocent persons is in need of reform. I was glad to be able to serve on a jury, to bring what I thought was an honest balance of judgement to the jury. Too much deference to the opinions of one side or another can only lead to mistakes in judgement, both in the current case and in how future cases are pursued.
