The Tragedy Of False Confessions

by Ralph Nader
Common Dreams News Center

"There are enough injustices in our society without innocent people being convicted of heinous crimes. Yet, it turns out that happens with far greater frequency than we ever imagined. DNA testing, a relatively new phenomenon, has already exonerated 175 people convicted of crimes... We cannot possibly accept putting people to death without knowing that they are guilty."
