2 Death Penalty Survivors get Married

I met, and talked to Amy Goodman of Democracy Now back in 2008 at the NCMR Free Press Event, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sonia and Peter were noticed by Democracy now, because of the New York City newspaper announcement of their recent marriage. Each was wrongly convicted, and sentenced to death, for crimes they did not commit. Sonia's husband was executed after the real perpetrator, who killed two police officers, confessed to the crime.

US Courts should not be trusted with the Death Penalty as they are so poorly run, and are more about revenue collection, retaliation, and abuse, than they are about justice.

What is revealed by Mr. Pringle, and Ms. Jacobs, is that the court system is flawed in the US and in other countries. We should question the checks and balances within courts. We should question on why most victims of judicial abuse receive no apology, and no compensation, for having their lives ruined. When there is injustice in a court case, family, extended family, and the economy suffer. We the people must do something. May I suggest abolishing judges, even in the Supreme Court, and then going with a People's Grand Jury System with independent investigators and absolute need for lying pirate lawyers?
