This makes our Justice System seem more a moot game between lawyers so far removed from reality on which a jury is expected to choose a winner. There seems there will be no winners only losers who will walk away apart of course from a justice system whose members will have been overpaid to do what they have defined as work but appears more like theatrics. Unfortunately is there a better alternative?
It is for those making the accusations and bringing the charges to provide evidence and prove every element of the alleged crime, to a standard that is ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ and, if a doubt reasonably based, exists in the mind of any one of them, then the accused must be acquitted : that’s how the system works.
