Inadequate training of police forces – collateral damages

A bit ironic but not enough when thinking about Julie Amero’s life. If the information is really true, and there is no reason to doubt, this is a scandal both in terms of training of law enforcement officials, and in terms of complete failure for the American criminal justice system to protect the innocent. I am not surprised though; I studied the system enough to know that plea bargaining is a powerful tool and that the US Supreme Court’s conditions are insufficient to guarantee fairness in the process. The ECHR has a more humane approach.
and by the way, not all charges were dropped as PB done
