If you heard someone say, "EFF THIS COP!!! GRRR!!!", you might be near where I was reading this book by my favorite author, John Grisham. This book tells the story of Ron Williamson as he was convicted guilty of a crime he didnt commit. Along with Dennis Fritz, they were sentenced death penalty by Lethal Injection.
I find it very wrath worthy that the authorities, who should be protecting its people, are the ones fabricating evidence to incriminate they're own. I can't believe that science was used in such way. Absurd! It is just absurd! Fooling everyone and even trying to salvage themselves from shame by not taking the blame! Goodness, I can't believe such a person exists. But thank God that this is already in the past, and that science has prevailed more in the field of Forensics and it didn't stop only to the faulty hair science. Good thing that there are people who are there to uphold the law, and that each person must given his/her fair share of justice.
Reading this book made me worry of the injustice in our country. Here where the rich and full pocketed rules, I that this kind of story can be traced here as well. good thing though that death penalty is not recognized here anymore. But I am sure the innocents are somewhere there and are rotting in their cells.
This book is a good read. It made me realize that there is really injustice in this world. That not all in power intends to be good for the society. I hope to be a lawyer to someday so that I may fight to the battleground for the weak the oppressed and the powerful.
