  1. “It’s not people who are doing bad things, it’s the system occasionally not working.”

    BOYERS BLUESTINE: That’s absolutely right.

    I disagree with this. I’ve seen far too many cases where police, prosecutors, judges and even defense lawyers do bad things intentionally. I wouldn’t want people to walk away believing that wrongful convictions are mostly due to errors. The “errors” are due to the misconduct in most cases.
