The American Justice System and Wrongful Convictions

Someone sent me the graphic below, presumably because I write a lot on justice issues.

It’s an interesting graphic that depicts the history and a number of scary averages about those wrongfully convicted of heinous crimes.

I’ve not come across anything similar detailed for the Canadian justice system, but just doing some simple math on the most high-profile Canadian wrongful convictions nets numbers scarily similar to the ones below.

Take a few minutes, if you would and take a look at the information below.  It just might open your eyes to one of western civilization’s greatest failings: sending innocent men and women to prison for crimes they did not commit.
