When the guilty go free

November 01, 2013

While I appreciate The Sun's attention to Baltimore City's new method of conducting photo identifications of crime suspects, the last sentence of the editorial is breathtakingly wrong ("True identifications," Oct. 28).

The fact that criminals will walk free when innocent people are jailed in their stead is called the "greatest risk of putting the wrong people behind bars."

No. The far greater crime is imprisoning someone who is innocent. That this isn't obvious to the editorial writer is truly disturbing.
