97% of cases the Justice Department prosecutes end in guilty pleas
Kim Jong Un would be proud.

The Wall Street Journal reported recently that 97 percent of cases the Justice Department prosecuted last year ended with guilty pleas, up from 84 percent in 1990. The ratio is nearly as high at the state level. “Criminal justice today is for the most part a system of pleas, not a system of trials,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote this year.

This is what I find really interesting about history. We will talk shit about the 'Spanish Inquisition', or the trials of the Knights Templars, and say "Oh, but those confessions were coerced, it was under duress, and after they were tortured".

Yeah, but we are more progressive these days, let me guess? Nothing is coerced, or under duress, or the modern equivalent of torture/intimidation, until a person confesses, these days???

I once read some research that said the inquisitorial courts were quite fair back in the day.. and there most likely was not a 97% guilty conviction rate

Wasn't it something like 3000 witches total, burned, in 300 years? I would look it up, but I agree with you, I doubt it was any where near the epidemic they make it out to be.

There is something called the 'black legend', where they admit history has been falsified to make people, or cultures, or entire countries/empires look back. That clearly happened with the Spanish Empire, but also is happening today with WHITE MALES (and their allies, Asians).

the spanish inquisition was 3000 executed in 300 years

to put it into perspective, america's middle east freedom operation have cost hundreds of thousands of lives and tons more maimed/injured/displaced in less than 20 years.

The KKK existed for over a hundred years and had a peak membership of over a million people (some estimates as high as 10 million). Somehow it managed to only kill around 4ooo people. We're supposed to believe that the only thing worse than a Klansman is a Nazi.

I have watched one or two of Jim Cramer's "how to profit from the Prison system" special episodes of MadMoney and just the other evening I saw some program discussing this for profit prison system nonsense.

Both the Insurance Industry and Legal Industry are NOT favorable to the consumer
