    Great video I'd say.

  4. Hindasound says:

    Thank you so much for this post. Mr. Buting certainly is "a relentless and eloquent advocate for justice!" I'll buy the book AND step up my game in my own area to be a better citizen.

    Look close at the day planner ,by phone records, she wrote on it ,bottom left , at 12:44 pm on 10/31/2005, days later it shows up in Ryan’s hands,
    If this was a gold coin, questions would be flying, hey buddy where did you get that,
    More valuable than gold

    great program. I found interviewers hairstyle very distracting. It was easier to focus by just using audio.

  8. Don Emigholz Jr. says:

    America has turned into everything that our nations founding fathers fought tooth and nail to keep from happening.

  9. 功夫Yiga says:

    It’s funny people believe imprisoning innocent people is better than letting terrorist go. From what I learned wrongful convictions often results in the real killer getting away with it.

    In total sum? Justice =$$$$ or how much you have to offer? This is in "FACT" Justice denied.

    Jerry knows his client got railroaded… DS not so much.. but both were way to mild mannered in their treatment of the corrupt cops.. I feel the Jury was able to be turned because Jerry and Dean showed fear..

    I'd like to hearJerry's opinion on the States case vs. Arron Schwartz. That prosecutor was ruthless, and cared more for his image and making a career for himself than the actual damage and true "nature" of the crime.
    Not to mention that the impending charges and pressure put on Arron led to his own suicide

    I think the two had to be restrained in presenting corruption otherwise it would have been met by a more than corrupt response. Ie treading on eggshelves approach. The problem in the us is trial by media. In the uk I think no tv crews in court does have a more balanced effect in adversarial trials, as media kicks up political interfearance. It makes the trial a farce like in Steven averys case. Ie independence of judiciary following rule of law.

  14. Quest ForThe13thNote says:

    I think what he talks about as having transparent court rooms with cameras at the same time as proper due court process in the US with freedom of political interfearance is living in dreamland and a barrier to justice. Have a court transcribed process but not docu drama trial by tv. I found the Tv channels constant interviews on daily tv feeds in Stephens case so damaging to a judge or police force it led political will to ensure a conviction. So too is media attention the jury hear which means a jury are far more likely to convict in high profile trials. They don’t want to let of people who may be guilty. Media deliberation of potential guilt will have an effect on conviction therefore. This is a crass trial process. In the uk we wouldn’t have trial by media, and at the end of it, people would be on same page if miscarriage. With frenzy of media in tv trials it kicks up media humbug to not being bothered if guilty or not. It just makes good tv. It’s just shallow. Surely you realise this Americans?

    steven avery is innocent

    Great interview… Thanks for posting.

  17. Onion Head says:

    why the hell is a hobo doing the interview ?!?!

  18. Not Applicable says:

    I wonder what Jerry himself charges an hour? 🤔

  19. that's the guy says:

    it's so sad to see there all making movies and writing books and yet there's 2 innocent men in jail and a rapist/murderer on the loose Americans yet again proving how sick minded ye are anything for a quick buck

    Everyone is under funded, but the companies that own the prisons are making it rain!

  21. Tina Bean says:

    I think a great way to summarize the major issue with the judicial system is by saying that egos, and politics are the priority. “Justice” is taking a back seat.

  22. Susan Harbison says:

    If our government and courts ever had any real integrity, I believe it is long gone now. We are past the point where we have even the illusion of justice. Our society has become desensitized to the corruption and I think we have implicitly accepted it. I have little hope that anything will improve. God help the people that still think the courts are concerned about justice.

  23. Susan Harbison says:

    Mr. Buting, in my opinion you are an American hero. Thank you for all that you are trying to do. I wish you continued good health and happiness!

  24. D. J. says:

    Whatever money the state puts into the prosecution they should also have to give to the defendant for their defense.

  25. ArkTiger4c says:

    Bwaa haaa haaa Justice in America ???? … you are guilty until proven innocent it was written the other way round but no ones noticed lately

  27. Momentum Stocks says:

    I watch a lot of these cases… how they can convict on a "beyond reasonable doubt" is shocking!!!

    It stems from society. The average citizen does not have the intelligence to weight up evidence subjectively.
    They are swayed by the police. False confessions. How they look etc….Not based off the evidence.

  28. Michael says:

    Imbalance of justice and pure corruption was shown in this trial. How he was found guilty is beyond me. The question isn't really guilty or innocence but reasonable doubt. This case should be used as an example of what a case with overwhelming reasonable doubt is. Case law…

    I’m pretty damn sure that poor people DO commit more crime per capita than rich people. Certainly violent crime, which I think is what most of us are most concerned about.

  30. randyp070129 says:

    7:50 No, I really DON’T need to ask why that is. Poor people commit more serious violent crime as a group than those with more wealth. Period.
    And since the average IQ of those in prison is relatively low, that is clearly a factor also.
    And then there is the fact that many/most weren’t raised with a father in the home. That alone is a major predictor for a highly increased risk for both poverty and incarceration. These are facts. Deal with it.

    who is that freak in the other chair?

    Isaiah 29:17-21 The Message (MSG)

    17-21 And then before you know it,
        and without you having anything to do with it,
    Wasted Lebanon will be transformed into lush gardens,
        and Mount Carmel reforested.
    At that time the deaf will hear
        word-for-word what’s been written.
    After a lifetime in the dark,
        the blind will see.
    The castoffs of society will be laughing and dancing in God,
        the down-and-outs shouting praise to The Holy of Israel.
    For there’ll be no more gangs on the street.
        Cynical scoffers will be an extinct species.
    Those who never missed a chance to hurt or demean
        will never be heard of again:
    Gone the people who corrupted the courts,
        gone the people who cheated the poor,
        gone the people who victimized the innocent.
