It's better to let 10 guilty men go free than put one innocent man in jail, amirite?

Okay. People just look at ten guilty men on the street or one innocent man in jail, but that's not the entirety of what this philosophy means. Number one: either way, guilty men are going free. The innocent man is going to jail instead of the actual guilty person. Number two: it isn't just about who you're letting go, it's about what society you would prefer. Would you prefer a society that puts people in jail without factual or true evidence, and where planting evidence is easier? Or would you prefer a society that cares so much about putting the right guy in jail, it won't even jail is supposed guilty person if there isn't enough proof? I don't think possible "safety" is worth an easily corruptible justice system that relies on faulty evidence.

In short:
Which is better?
Eye witness says he did it, the guy goes to jail regardless of whether or not he did it.
Eye witness says he did it, but because eye witnesses aren't completely reliable, and there isn't any other substantial evidence, the guy goes free.

It must've been tough being a magician in the 15th century. "Is this your card?" "Burn him! Burn the witch!!", amirite?

"AND NO THAT'S NOT MY CARD!!! BURN THE CRAPPY WITCH!!!"

Search warrants should not be required. Only someone who has something to hide would be worried about being searched, amirite?
@Again, I ask: what logical fallacy have I committed? You accused me of not being logical, and you need to back up...

I am. I am giving you reasons. You're just saying statements, that are quite honestly opinions, and not giving any reasons: why using search warrants doesn't make corruption harder, etc. You just say things like: that's not true. That's not a comeback. You need to back up what you've said. But you aren't saying anything beyond that. You are being illogical if you're just going to keep saying how am I being illogical even when I explain why.

@Please explain which logical fallacy I am committing.

You said that is not true. No reason why, no asking to clarify why I think that search warrants make corruption harder. Then I made fun of you by making a general statement and purposely saying I wasn't going to back it up. And then you continued to make general statements without anything backing them up.

Now, I believe that search warrants make corruption harder because they leave a paper trail and make it necessary that people give reasons as to why they are looking into a house. If someone else were to look over the search warrants they could more easily see anything fishy going on. Requiring the police to get search warrants creates a system in which it is easier to detect abuse through paper evidence. If the warrants don't add up...

@I fail to see how you could possibly think that someone saying "that's not true" to a false statement could...

I fail to see how you fail to see my criticism of your statements. I don't know how you could possibly think that someone making fun of someone else's comments for having no logical backing or evidence is not a comeback.

@Is that supposed to be a comeback?

Is your comment supposed to be a comeback? Because it's the fourth quater and you're still losing.

@That's not true.

Your face isn't true but you don't see me saying that without any reasons to back it up.

You get irritated when you can't lift only one eyebrow, when apparently EVERYONE in books can, amirite?

I can raise both if them separately. Now bow down to my genetics!!!

Who cares?

You've never cried while reading a book. amirite?
@whisperedtouches I always kind of forget about Davey, which is ridiculous, but thinking about him makes me sad. I REALLY feel bad...

I forgot about Lee. I loved most of those characters, I really thought Wilf was a cool guy. The sky? Angered me at a lot of points though.

Brave New World made me cry, and it's been my favorite ever since.
