    Even if a person intentionally massacres 60 people with a shotgun?

    1criminal free = he will ruin multiple lives most of the time.
    1innocent in jail = 1ruined life

    In the end it might be better just to have 1man whos innocent in jail then letting a single murderer go free for each innocent man. All depends on the ratio and what the criminal did and what he will do if he was still out there. Which in the end is just hypothetical thinking/scenarios.

    Ironicly enough most big time criminals go free cause of laws which were ment to protect innocent people from power abuse, being framed etc. Yay for loopholes which only expensive lawyers tend to find.

    I don't think so. This isn't the first time it's happened so there's precedent.

    He ought to receive some fair median remuneration for his time however.

    Unfortunately, you only get one shot at existence, and the worms consuming his dead flesh won't care how many millions he got for for wasting a huge portion of his life rotting in a cell.

    As far as I know victims aren’t allowed to go after those that put them in jail. I wonder if legislation (or the reversal of whatever legislation protects them) that holds those involved in a wrongful conviction responsible would make a difference. If the prosecutor and judge know a victim of a wrongful conviction/imprisonment could take them to court they may be a bit more careful.

    If I remember correctly some states will give some reparation for wrongful imprisonment while other will not. Those that do generally give what I consider a underwhelming amount in comparison to what has been lost. Its not like hes likely to get 10 million or anything.

    If it's proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, but that's the problem. Mistakes can ALWAYS be made. People can always be framed.

    Is it ever worth it? If one innocent person is sent to death row and executed.. it's too much.

    I would rather be murdered by a criminal knowing I had a chance to fight back and defend myself, or hell, even tortured by a criminal, over spending years of my life in Jail.

    This has nothing to do with math. The whole thing is preposterous because it assumes people cannot defend themselves. At least they have a chance to against a criminal. If the state comes and says you're guilty, you can't fight off half a million cops.

    Id rather see 100 criminals go free before 1 innocent man goes to jail.

    Video camera. Guy robs a bank and shoots 60 innocent people, all caught on camera

    I think the death penalty should exist for severe cases like that.

    What if the camera footage was faked? It would have to be 100% proven that it was the original security tape, with a very clear image of the mans face.

    I'm only against the death penalty because, for almost every case, there is not enough evidence to be 100% certain he did it. If there's any possibility that a man is innocent..

    That's archaic.

    Let's do it the Inquisition style where someone get's anonymously accused and then we ask them if they are guilty. If they say no we torture them until they say yes.
