Still don’t believe me? Well here it is from U.S. District court Judge Keith Ellison.
Federal law does not recognize actual innocence as a mechanism to overturn an otherwise valid conviction.
What was the purpose of that statement? It was his reasoning behind him denying a motion for a new trial. Think about that long and hard. Innocence is not a reason to overturn a conviction. Being innocent does not prevent you from being found guilty and evidence that proves your innocence does not provide a route to overturn a bad verdict.
Translation: “There is no correlation between the law and justice.”
Remember, It takes a good prosecutor to convict a guilty man, it takes a great prosecutor to convict an innocent one. Couple that with three felonies a day and you’re only allowed to remain free by their good graces.
