America's Justice System is Broken
I am sitting here watching Pit Bulls and Parolees, and they were discussing AJ's case. He got into trouble when he was a teenager, and got out of jail because he did his time and confessed his stupidity. He was mature and grown up, got married and has children. He ran the country's largest pit bull rescue center with other parolees. Police came and arrested him because on his property, another parolee had stashed stolen items. He had the choice between life or a deal of about fifteen years, despite that he was not the one who had stolen anything, did not receive the objects, and did not know about them.

Our justice system is broken here in America. Do we get some dangerous people off the streets? Yes. Do I respect respectable cops? Yes. I want to be an animal cop when I grow up and get through college. But I also recognize that our judicial branch has some serious flaws that our government most likely won't fix.

I have seen horrific cases where, in two examples, (1) a man went to jail in a wheelchair. The cops told him to get out of it, and he said he couldn't. They did not believe him and dumped him out of the chair and took it away, saying "get up." (2) another man went to jail and had grills on his teeth. The police told him to take them out, and he said he couldn't, they were permanent. So, the officers ripped the grills out and took the man's teeth with it.

Did you know that America is one of the last, I believe it is, six countries who have the death penalty? The other countries include: Korea, Arabia, Afgan., Iran, and Iraq. So, from the general POV (which is in some cases, wrong), we are in the same league with the terrorists, jail-wise. I recognize that other countries to insane things, and that they are not all there all the time either, but this is insane. It is against our laws (I will not go into the religious laws, though I recognize that they, too, play a role) to kill people. Yet when it happens, the punishment has often been death to them (which makes me wonder why the people directly involved with the execution are not also "humanely" passed on).

Argh, this goes on too much into too many things... just had to say something.
