How to send things to me at Alderson

I do not need much and can't have much but I would love a letter. Want details on what you can send see.

Mostly just plain white envelopes with letters. Books are nice but I can only have 5 with me at a time. News papers, magazines are nice. I can always share with others who do not have friends to send them things to read.
Thinks you can send to me

Print and mail me things such as legal news, funny things, the news paper.

Ideas of places you can print things from

Watch my video about what went wrong with international adoptions.

Cognitive Dissonance and Wongfull Convictions

A friend posted this photo to the right on Facebook and it got me thinking.

My core belief use to be the US justice system was fair and one of the best in the world. Evidence has shown me a very different view changing my core values and beliefs about our system. It has created a strong feeling of untrust in the entire U.S. Governmental system.

Our judicial system is no longer innocent until proven guilty. It use to be the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, each essential element of the crime charged. Now it is how the prosecutor with no viable evidence and persuade a jury to accept a story they provide even if there is not any evidence. Prosecutors have become psychological manipulators. 

Jury members want to believe that our prosecutors, police and those in power are truthful. When given evidence that this may not be the case they become conflicted and find it easier just to believe what they are told is the truth by the prosecutor instead of balancing all the evidence. 

This is often the crux of wrongful convictions.
