"I think we should go even further, and where the evidence still exists, determine how many executed criminals' DNA does not match the evidence.  Won't help the executed "criminal", but it might be a lesson for society."

"I'm glad that people on death row have been exonerated by DNA evidence. This tells me for a fact that they are not guilty. Let them go because they did not do the crime. For many there was no testing at the time of their conviction but there is…"

"OK. There is no such thing as absolute proof - of anything. That is why the criterion for guilt is proven guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt" - which is not the same thing as absolute proof. The judicial system will never go to an…"

Hello James G. Lee, and welcome to this friendly meeting place where atheists recognise that religion is a huge deception aimed at controlling vulnerable superstitious people, including defenceless children; and
how tragic and inexcusable it is that women and minorities have been oppressed these last two thousand years and even longer.
