U-G-L-Y, You Might Have an Alibi, But You’re Guilty, You’re Guilty! - Law Blog - WSJ The element of caprice in judging whether an accused is guilty of a crime BEYOND ALL REASONABLE DOUBT is always a concern but this study appears to really substantiate the concern. A twenty percent caprice rate is absurd and highlights the unAmerican trend to ignore the legal standards that are mandated in criminal cases. In a society that values freedom it is always going to be better that the guilty go free than that a single person lose liberty because proof was not required beyond all reasonable doubt.
