Response to misanthrope (Reply #26)

30. The difference between a lawyer's lie usually doesn't result in someone going to prison or

saddling someone with a criminal record. In a system where a cops testimony is, for the most part, considered inherently credible their lies cause ordinary citizens a tremendous amount of personal damage. Dash and body cams has help to even the playing field but cops often turn off the sound or position their patrol car so as to interfere with the recording leaving the court or jury in a position of having to determine whose version of events is more credible the cops or the accused. In a bench trial most judges overwhelming automatically side with the cops. You have a better shot with a jury but itís still an uphill battle owing to the credibility jurors place upon a cops testimony.
