An example of the corruption of our justice system would be the case of Dewey Bozella. This man was accused of murdering a 92 year old woman. However, Dewey was far from the crime. Two convicts were told that if they testified against Bozella they would be able to obtain their freedom. Justice? I don't think so. It does not stop here though. All evidence in favor of Bozella was destroyed by the police. When a suspect came and confessed to the crime nothing was done about it. I cringe when I think about our justice system. Bozella was imprisoned for 26 years, and he was given several "opportunities" to be a free man. He was given the option to confess. However, he stated he would rather die than confess to a crime he did not commit. He stayed in prison and never backed down. He didn't let his situation take him down though. He got his GED in prison and began boxing. He sent letters to the Innocent Project until they finally took up his case. They uncovered a file that proved his innocence and was finally a free man after 26 years.
This is only one of the many cases the justice system has failed to do its job. How can they call it the justice system when they constantly frame a person for something he/she didn't do? The definition of justice is to act or treat justly or with fairness. Dewey's case was far from it. The very sad thing about the justice system is that it seems to get worse. How can we stop corruption in this world if the justice system itself seems to be corrupt?
