Wow, yet another problem that could be ended by just legalizing drugs.

Oh the poor thing. A 6pm curfew is impacting her social life. How does that compare to the social life of the people incarcerated due to her fraudulent testing methods?

If she legitimately did that of her own free will and circumstances, then an example needs to be set and justice needs to be damn harsh. however, if she was basically ordered to do that surreptitiously to support that travesty known as "for-profit" prisons, then every single person up that chain of command needs to be shackled and subjected to the same kangaroo trials they dole out to non-violent drug offenders daily.

She should just be executed. They could fudge the paperwork to make the trial look legit later.

If this was a fair world, her head would be separated from her neck with an axe if she did in fact do what she is accused od doing maliciously. Elsewise, she'd lose ALL assests and then become a slave until her debt to those imprisoned was paid off with interest.

Justice rarely involves prisons. It takes effort to ballance scales.

Krieghund: She might not deserve to have a fair trial, but we won't know that until we give her a fair trial.
Ironic, huh?


It's a classic Catch-22, where the best solution is to simply give everyone accused of a crime a fair trial; no matter how guilty we think they are. If we want to consider ourselves civilized it's the only solution.

ChubbyTiger: OK, she's not convicted yet, so I'm fine with whatever. Having said that, should she be convicted she should spend a very significant portion of her remaining days in prison. She, and all forensic scientists, must be held to a very high standard for ethics.


Just like cops, judges, and elected officials? Oh, wait...

BradleyUffner: mgshamster: This stuff pisses me off.  She should get a prison sentence for this.  Forensic work can determine people's fate, and intentionally falsifying your work should come with a hefty penalty.

/I suspect that I'll be hearing about some of my former classmates about similar charges in the coming years

Perhaps they should wait until she's actually found guilty though.


Well, yeah. That goes without saying.
 
/Or maybe it does need to be said, considering the case.
//Shouldn't be difficult, all the paperwork is there to show whether she actually falsified results.

If this were a man, he'd've already been thrown in PMITA prison. But, as Daniel Tosh learned, rape jokes aren't funny when they involve women.

She should be locked up in general population along with the ones she's helped falsely accuse.

P.S. When you wish for execution of  anyone,I question many things about you, not the least of which is your sanity, for there are  many alternatives to execution, and  execution indicates an acceptance of the debasing of humanity into commodified bits, which I do  not accept as a currency for humans currently.

Agreed. An example needs to be set. Certainly some of these imprisoned persons did other things to get them there, so it's not like everyone is going to walk free, but surely not all of them did. Some, I'd bet, are there ONLY BECAUSE of her.

If this was a fair world, she would have been sentenced to complete all the sentences her results caused. Please excuse the sentence structure of the previous sentence.
