WRONGFUL ARRESTS AND CONVICTIONS CAN AND DO HAPPEN HERE
Whether it be witnesses who are mistaken or not truthful, police officers or Crown Attorneys seeking a promotion, tunnel vision, confirmation bias, junk science, prosecutions that are too vigorous …. “Embracing a false belief of perfection ignores the fact that innocent people have been, and continue to be, wrongly convicted of crimes they did not commit. False guilty pleas happen too – innocent individuals often plead guilty in exchange for a lesser sentence in the hopes of returning to a “normal” life as quickly as possible.” Yes, it could and does happen here.
Why wrongful arrests, convictions and unfair trials could (and probably do) happen in Canada
