    Until the laws are changed to hold unscrupulous, immoral, unethical and criminal prosecutors PERSONALLY LIABLE (with $$ and jail time for every unjust conviction) and until the Police Officers who broke the law and framed suspects ARE HELD ACCOUNTABLE with jail time, this practice will continue. Add the formerly free press' preference of believing the police over citizens (and villifying certain types of citizens), and you see why the majority of exonerated people have dark skin, and had their convictions 'affirmed' by moronic, myopic and inane justices, judges and other attorneys who would rather protect the Esquire than free an innocent man.
