Default What if? - Responsibility For Their Actions

What if there was a law saying that IF someone is found to be unjustly convicted and imprisoned, those responsible must serve the jail time sentenced? For example, Tim Masters. What if the cops and DA that put him away were put on trial and ionce convicted had to do the same time he did?

I agree I have been saying this for years....
Take away the immunity they now have and let them be responsible for what they do, I believe we would see a big difference in what happens. They must be held responsible......

Now that would just take all the fun out of it for law enforcement! They talk about taking responsibility for your actions, but what about theirs?

I think that is an interesting idea. I would love for the people that railroaded others to have to do the same time. But I wonder if it would cut down on the prosecutions of people that really do need some time to stop and think about things? Then again maybe politicians could stop fearing not being re-elected because they lack a "get tough on crime" stance. This way society would understand the injustice committed toward inmates.

I really believe that one of the biggest problems in our society is that there are two distinct and separate sets of laws on how people convicted of any kind of crime are treated. You have your poor who can't afford good attorneys and you have your rich who buy the law. Until that distinction is gone or we as a people demand change things will stay the same.
