Prisoner In US Gulag Released After 16 Years, Turns Out He Was Entirely Innocent

Chris | InformationLiberation

Another innocent man has been freed from the US's colossal prison state thanks to DNA evidence overturning the government's fraudulent conviction. The government's prosecutor told the man, "I deeply regret what the system did. I wish you the best and I mean that sincerely."

In other words, he absolved himself of any responsibility for his actions and blamed "the system" instead. That he himself is "the system" as "the system" is only a gang of criminals who call themselves "the government" is apparently lost on him, who'da thunk...

Via Reuters:
A Colorado man wrongly convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of a woman found strangled with a dog leash was exonerated on the basis of new DNA evidence and set free on Monday after spending more than 16 years behind bars.

Robert "Rider" Dewey walked out of a courthouse in Grand Junction, Colorado, a free man after a judge found him innocent of the 1994 killing and said his exoneration marked a "historic day" for the state.

"Mr. Dewey spent 6,219 days of his life incarcerated for a crime he did not do," Mesa County District Judge Brian Flynn said during the brief hearing. "This is a reminder to the entire system that it's not perfect."

Flynn said prosecutors had not committed misconduct, Dewey had been represented by good defense attorneys, and an impartial jury had heard the case but added: "Despite all these things, the system didn't work."
Not perfect? Gee, that's the understatement of the year.

This was a completely innocent man who had his freedom stolen from him by an unfeeling criminal government, the original principle of "better 100 guilty men go free than one innocent man be imprisoned" has been replaced with "better 100 innocent men be jailed than one guilty man go free."
At Dewey's original sentencing, then-Mesa County District Judge Charles Buss was quoted in local media as telling the defendant that, "I am happy to impose it (a life sentence) on you."
As we've pointed out many times, the US now has more people in prison than Stalin had in his gulags. This out of control prison state is bankrupting the nation and turning the US into a third world police state.

The sad news is rather than people realizing this and changing the US's laws for the better, legislatures are passing more laws and criminalizing more actions than ever. There we're 40,000 new laws passed last year alone, there is currently some 800,000+ regulations on the books.

Everything is a crime in the new America, if you're not reading this from prison, consider yourself fortunate.

8067 Was it a Jury-trial ?

There's an old saying :
"When you point a finger at others, there are 3 fingers pointing at YOU !"

"Mesa County District Judge Brian Flynn said during the brief hearing. "This is a reminder to the entire system that it's not perfect." "
So, my question is :
Do You Libertarians have a perfect system to replace 'the imperfect' system ??

Not having the inmates running the asylum is a good start.

174130 Hey Peter; here's a single thought for you to ponder.

If cannabis were totally decriminalized, and it were legal to grow it in your own back yard - - - - the street price of the stuff would drop to zero, that is $00.00. That single act would put thousands of criminal gangs out of business. It would also put the "for profit" penal system out of business.

Three bogus wars have bankrupted America, with the full support of the sheeple. These wars are called the WAR ON POVERTY, THE WAR ON DRUGS, AND THE WAR ON TERROR.

Libertarians would end all three of these wars that were solely designed to take away our liberty and end our prosperity. Ignorant liberals and ignorant conservatives have supported all three of these wars.. .

18413 Peter,

I'm of the same opinion as the founding fathers, "better 100 guilty men go free than one innocent man be imprisoned".

WE don't need a perfect system. WE just need to go back to the one envisioned 200 years ago by the founders.
