Problem

Prosecutors have too much power. There are no repercussions to the da or police departments or individual officers when defendants are found not guilty.

I see that most often accused take a plea deal even if doubting there exists evidence against them. They know they won't win anyway. The lawyer bankrupts them anyway just to get to a plea agreement. It's an unrealistic idea for most citizens accused and charged with a crime to get to evidence presented in a court of law and guilt determined by a jury of their peers. Just more than can afford. And the attorneys know this as does law enforcement and district attorneys. I saw a case with no evidence indicted by a grand jury only to drag three years never bringing to trial prosecutors just ruining the accused life til time ran out on their no evidence charges. Still cost defendant 20,000$ life savings. No problem for the authorities or the courts.
