An innocent man going to prison for life, or a guilty man going free?

Undoubtedly, unquestionably, the very aim of the Justice system should be to avoid "taking the life of an innocent"... whether you want to look at it that way or not, imprisoning someone for any length of time is tantamount to taking their life, to do that to someone innocent of a crime is itself a crime. We should most certainly be willing to allow some guilty to slip through the cracks (hopefully to be caught again later) to avoid falsely imprisoning anyone.
