Man Freed After 35 Years for a Crime He Did Not Commit!
Although this is an absolutely fantastic day for James Bain, freed after 35 years in prison for a crime that he did not commit. I can't help but think of the time he has lost - my god that is as long as I MAJICK have been alive.

The tragic miscarriage of justice throw a more injustices in this what really is a remarkable case.

35 years ago a 9-year old child was kidnapped an raped by somebody - the sick individual that commited this crime has probably lived a great life as a free man for those 35 years, and the child now and adult has had to put up with the nightmare of the events every day and night for those 35 years.

DNA evidence proved James Bain did not commit the crime.

A statement made by the judge made me a little angry...

"Mr. Bain, I'm now signing the order," continuing the judge said, "you're a free man. Congratulations."

Now I don't want to sound like I am being pedantic here, but how about the fricking judge saying...

"I am sorry and the state is sorry for this gross miscarriage of justice that has been served upon you."

The judge should have also said, "We are sorry also to the victim in this case who has had to suffer this last 35 years, and may continue to suffer until his captor has been caught."

It should have been done publicly too!

Ok somebody had to do time for the crime - but not an innocent man. DNA testing had been around for many years now, why has it taken forensics so long to bring justice to this man?

Ok DNA testing was not around 35 years ago - but for crying out loud both of these victims could have been saved a lot of hardship over the last ten years at least.

I'm saying this here because I have to sound impartial at other places where I write - on this note I have to say this case of mistaken identity is extreme in any case - but goes to prove the law is not always right.

Two days ago I was saying I am all for the death penalty - today this case made me think a little more about capital punishment.

This is a hard one for everybody involved...

Good luck Mr. Bain and I really do hope the real criminal did not get away with it and died free!

I hope the guy is caught eventually - if proved by DNA - this is a time the death penalty is warranted!

Saw a documentary of people who had been wrongly jailed for decades. Current technology such as DNA analysis conclude they didn't commit the crime. In that documentary it was shown there are many cases in the US such as these, also that racism played a role in the verdict of the jurors.

Absolutely... it's a harsh world in reality - fucked up to the point that you could lie in bed - it all end tomorrow - and still say...

Well fuck it... that is the end of that - I hope the next occupants of this planet do a better job!

And IF I am an Alien watching all this - I am already convinced it should be destroyed!

What I don't understand is why the prosecutors delay and fight to keep the guy in prison even after it's been proved he's innocent. It's like they just picked some stooge, manufactured their case, got him convicted, and now they don't want anyone spoiling the work they did. They don't care about evidence, just finding a stooge, making a case, and getting the conviction. Doesn't matter who the really guilty person was.

I'm not giving you shit here my GLP friend... but how the hell would the law figure that this is in the slightest bit rectifiable?

Not a damn chance - millions of dollars will not get this guy his life back - or the victims!

And prior to your answer - yes stooges - there are a lot of them everywhere!

I lost faith in the law a long time ago when my then girlfriend was killed in a car accident by her drunk driver father.

He got of scott free - 2000 gbp fine and a 2 year suspended sentence!

Well I mean that's just the British Justice system all over... but this shows that yes, the law does what ever it please - and we have to swallow it!

When is that world revolt ever going to happen?

They couldn't afford it - I would want the original judge as a slave for the next 35 years, that would be a great start but that wouldn't happen as he is probably already dead.

My life is priceless - as is Mr. Bains and the victim!

The anawer - any amount would be not enough!
