    Innocent until proven guilty??? Someone better wake up and smell the roses. The inherent injustices awaiting these kids in the criminal in-justice system is a crime in and of itself. Walk into a courtroom without high priced legal representation and see how ‘fair and just’ the criminal system really is. Try guilty until proven innocent.
