THIS is why people were up-in-arms about a DNA database complied by law enforcement. Besides the fact that evidence is routinely manipulated, the temptation to engage in more junk science, like phrenology, is too tempting for some of our melanin-deprived fellow citizens. The irony is that something like this will have avid supporters among the judiciary and law enforcement personnel, but those same proponents will fight tooth and nail when a convict WANTS his DNA tested to prove his...

Re: Can we please stop referring to people with the epithet "illegal"?

Maybe you should accept that people are commonly referred to based on an act they committ or even a proffesion they hold. A convict is called a convict because he has been convicted of a crime, a thief is called a thief because he or she steal from others, and men and women who entered this the U.S. illegally based on current law are refered to as illegals because they entered this country illegally. What is so difficult to understand about that. It is not to say their person is defined by...

I believe the jury voted with their heart when they collaborated together to convict Marcus. It goes to show that even with the best of intentions, the love that his parents embraced Marcus with wasn't anywhere near enough to save him from this . People that want to adopt children outside of their race should really do some research about the culture and background of the child FIRST! Love alone won't get you anywhere in the USA.

I think he is guilty of being stupid and behaving inappropriately, but I don't think the prosecution's case was strong enough to convict him on all charges. The man needs to be in counseling and his children need to go back to their mothers. I have doubts as to whether or not they are really his biological children anyway, but that's another issue. I think that if Michael gets off, there will be a lot of pissed off people. First OJ, then Kobe, R Kelly beat most of his stuff, and now Michael?

The evidence in this case was irrelevent in the decision to charge MJ; much of it was put together after the charges were filed. In Mr. Sneddon's eyes, anything would have worked.

American history is replete with examples of people convicted with little or no evidence. Only on "Law & Order" is hearsay evidence inadmissible. In a...
