District judge Ken Anderson of Williamson County, Texas is now formally under investigation for his alleged role in a gross injustice as a prosecutor. It is an all-too-rare case where a former prosecutor is actually called to account for an injustice.

The question comes down to, what's worse, a guilty person being freed, or an innocent person being punished?

The legal system has become so extremely free about how they interpret circumstantial evidence that just about anything can be made to look like evidence in whatever way the prosecutor wants. It's about time we reduce the importance of circumstantial evidence to nothing, and base everything on real evidence or at least 2 corroborating eyewitnesses.
