another example of american justice

it appears from all the reports that only one person committed the crimes and yet two people get imprisoned for the same crimes. it can only happen in america.

I liked the bit about how Robert Jones [along with so many of the other inmates] are working out in the "Cotton Fields" whilst serving their time in Jail, whether he be guilty or not, at least the Yanks have got THAT bit right............. proper way. :lol:

I just skimmed through the article and unfortunately, yes, he didn't commit that crime (on the British tourists) but he had been signaled out for a different crime, rape and a robbery, which was never properly investigated as they just decided to put him away too:


Soon after the tip came in, a woman who had been robbed, kidnapped and raped in a horrific, prolonged ordeal a week before the murder of Julie Stott, was in the police station for a follow-up interview.
The investigator interviewing her said the police had news of a potential suspect and showed her a series of photographs.
Looking at the first picture, the rape victim said the man was too young. The second she did not recognise at all. The third she put to one side, before looking through the others.
Ultimately, she went back to the third picture. That, she said, was the man who had attacked her.
The third photograph was of Robert Jones.



“The fact that Robert Jones was wrongly convicted and is in jail for something he arguably he didn't do weighs heavily on me,” says the judge, now retired, who presided over Robert's trial in 1996.
Himself an African-American, Johnson makes the astonishing claim that the system worked to put as many young, black men behind bars for as long as possible.

not just that crime, he did not commit any of the crimes. the other bloke was found guilty of all the crimes on account of the stuff they found on him an in his house. the point is what the hell is the prosecution doing charging two men for the same crime. the evidence was clear that there was only one person involved.
