What About the Misidentified Victims?

· dKo journal, Edgewise, Paleoblogs

A growing number of people, having been duly convicted of heinously violent crimes, are now being released and put back on the street, based on newly fashionable legal technicalities such as DNA mismatches. We hear the predictable chorus of soft-on-crime lobbies, running on ad nauseum about the precious civil rights of misidentified convicts–even when the crimes involve the most brutal murders, rapes, and physical mutilation.
Have these champions of the rights of misidentified convicts given even the slightest thought to the rights of the misidentified victims? Or the rights of the misidentified families of misidentified victims?
It is about time these convicts took full responsibility for every last one of their past mistakes.
