Here's another story in the Herald of a 15 year old boy (no less) imprisoned in 1983 for life for a rape that new forensic evidence shows he didn't commit.
Here's the point: It's one thing for us to acknowledge that we knew a whole lot less about the weakness of eyewitness testimony 25 years ago than we know today.
But we don't see any acknowledgment by prosecutors today about the weakness of such testimony. Time and again we hear "It's a good case; the victim ID'd the defendant."
When will they learn?
Flying home tomorrow. Long trip.
