"An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression, for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself."
"Wrongful convictions happen every week in every state in this country. And they happen for all the same reasons. Sloppy police work."
"The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is not to be skillfuly attacked, but to be ineptly defended."
