    Up To 20,000 Drug Convictions To Be Overturned In Massachusetts?

    Falsified evidence could overturn 2k drug convictions in Mass. — RT America

    We probably don't really want to know how corrupt the system has been over the decades.

    While I agree, there are just as many that avoid any real consequences. The system is mostly a revolving door these days.

    And what % do we think were actually innocent? Those handful will get redemption and the rest will be back out on the streets with one less thing on their record.

    There is. That's why these convictions are going to be overturned.
