“Governor Ryan’s action was shockingly wrong,” Mr. Lieberman said in an interview on Friday. “It did terrible damage to the credibility of our system of justice, and particularly for the victims.”
Me, I’d think the thirteen wrongly convicted death row inmates might have done more damage to the credibility of the system. Not to mention the Chicago police officers who tortured suspects until they confessed.
But Joe Lieberman thinks it is the acknowledgement of the system’s flaws which damages the credibility of the system.
I really hope this guy isn’t the Democratic nominee in ’04.
