No real justice can ever be found in a murder case

I have asked for justice for Meredith Kercher. That was meant to ask the American media and the US government to be impartial and not try to intervene in a judicial process.

Now that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito have been convicted again and they and their supporters are trying so hard to prove that there is no evidence to prove their involvement, I have realized that I have made a mistake.

Judicial systems can only convict perpetrators who have left evidence of their involvement. Therefore, no real justice for a murder can ever be found through a judicial system. Why?

In any judicial system, we have to find evidence of perpetrators’ involvement to prove their guilt. That means perpetrators who leave evidence of their involvement can be convicted while those who do not leave any evidence or succeed in cleaning up evidence of their involvement can not be convicted. That means murderers are convicted for their stupidity or inability to cover up or failure to cover up, not for their crime.

Therefore, it is very meaningless to argue over whether there is enough of evidence to prove their guilt or not. It is in fact even harmful to do so. It sends the message that you better cover up for your crimes or you will have to pay for your crimes.
