The Innocence Project2

Miss Piggy Is "Using"
It is just one damn quandary after another here in the exceptional Western Civilization.

Eat your heart out, exceptional Eastern Civilization!

From time to time our science becomes "rebellious."

Indicating its rebellion by saying: "Houston, we have a problem."

One could wonder why we never went back to the moon with younger Navy Seals, hovering over the moon dust while exclaiming "we have no stinking problems!"

We civilized people do not entertain the notion of "problems" on certain exceptional levels, especially those problems in the recipe that fate "manifest destiny" cooked up for us.

"Cooked up," then put on the final exam (The Tenets of Ecocosmology).

For your plebs and mine, in our world "final" means the one just before the next one.

Like da man said:
With doublespeak, banks don't have "bad loans" or "bad debts"; they have "nonperforming assets" or "nonperforming credits" which are "rolled over" or "rescheduled." Corporations never lose money; they just experience "negative cash flow," "deficit enhancement," "net profit revenue deficiencies," or "negative contributions to profits."
(Propaganda Is A "Toxic Asset", quoting professor Lutz). Which brings me to "The Innocence Project" ... as I understand it ... or as I don't understand it:
The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal organization that is committed to exonerating wrongly convicted people through the use of DNA testing, and to reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice. The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld. To date, the work of the Innocence Project has led to the freeing of 325 wrongfully convicted people, including 18 who spent time on death row.
(Boston Wikerpedier, emphasis added). The innocence, or lack thereof, of both individuals and groups, is a concept that floats atop a massive ocean of cognition.

That is the ocean in which we, using our cognition, decided to name "the evolution of justice."

An ocean traversed by the ship of state, a ship guided by the Department of Justice always, toward a broad and wide beach, a beach with a broad and wide port.

A port where many of its sailors have concluded "any port in a storm."

But those winds still blow incessantly:
From biology class to “C.S.I.,” we are told again and again that our genome is at the heart of our identity. Read the sequences in the chromosomes of a single cell, and learn everything about a person’s genetic information — or, as 23andme, a prominent genetic testing company, says on its Web site, “The more you know about your DNA, the more you know about yourself.”

But scientists are discovering that — to a surprising degree — we contain genetic multitudes. Not long ago, researchers had thought it was rare for the cells in a single healthy person to differ genetically in a significant way. But scientists are finding that it’s quite common for an individual to have multiple genomes. Some people, for example, have groups of cells with mutations that are not found in the rest of the body. Some have genomes that came from other people.

Medical researchers aren’t the only scientists interested in our multitudes of personal genomes. So are forensic scientists. When they attempt to identify criminals or murder victims by matching DNA, they want to avoid being misled by the variety of genomes inside a single person.

Last year, for example, forensic scientists at the Washington State Patrol Crime Laboratory Division described how a saliva sample and a sperm sample from the same suspect in a sexual assault case didn’t match.
(On The Origin of Genieology, emphasis added). Yikes! ... There are some other wild and crazy stories that should be told before the music plays.

Such as wondering about how many people have been wrongly convicted in our criminal justice system, because of wrongful DNA assumptions of  a single genome in each individual.

However, since I feel so innocent today, let's musicate ...

A highway is located at the journey's destination, as well as being located at the journey's beginning (our criminal justice system is on the wrong highway).

"pearls and swine bereft of me
long and weary my road has been
i was lost in the cities alone in the hills
no sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

  1. Not really what the DOJ needs, or state prosecutors either for that matter, seeing as how they are problematic already.
