Two further arrests in Arkansas horse theft probe | Horsetalk - International horse news

Earlier this week, campus police earlier announced the arrest of Jaci Rae Jackson, 19, who is charged in relation to the theft of the horses

This line specifically says she was arrested first. And the article itself shows the men were arrested after. With working as an intern for nyc police department and for terrorist agencies this clearly to me shows signs of a chance of a deal being made in order to get reduced sentencing if she gave other names... is it fair if this happened - no its not!!!

Generally there are always two sides to any story. The media has their side, primarily geared towards generating the most hype and selling the most ads, papers, ratings, or what not.
The accused generally save their side for an actual court where both sides can be presented to a jury of peers, which decide. It isnt a perfect system but it is the best one man has come up with. There MUST be a presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
Trial by media, and trial by mob is wrong. It's a shame so many seemingly bright intelligent people forget that.
Of course that generally gets the public in a tizzy because they have only been exposed to one side of the story and are screaming for conviction and punishment before there is even a trial. All the facts and evidence will come out and I have faith a 12 person jury will render the proper verdict based on the law and the evidence presented. In the event of a guilty verdict I would assume the judge would issue a sentence also based on current law. He does have some leeway but the facts of the case should determine that. NOT MOB rule. That is a very dangerous road to travel down and pulls at the very fabric of our justice system.
Another founding principle of our justice system is it is illegal to make retroactive laws and punishments. You can't go changing a law or the punishment for breaking that law after the offense is committed. This is another protection against mob rule and mob trials. Judges should not ever make decisions on punishment based on current popular opinion.
I am sure if anyone of you were charged with a crime you would want your rights respected and to be given a fair trial. If found guilty you would also expect to get about the same sentence as someone else who did the same crime but didnt end up a tabloid event.
mousemom and Nitefeatherz like this.

What exactly would her side be, seeing as she confessed, watch the one horse killed gave the names of the others who were involved? What, is she going to say" they put a gun to my head and forced me to pick out the five horses?
Sorry, the problem with inocent until proven quilty was it used to work. Now, you can do just about anything, including murdering your own kids, much less someone else and then get away with it by pleading that your mother spanked you as a kid, etc. The criminal justice system is great, for the guilty ones. The victims are the ones who are usually already dead and they get nothing, nor had no choice why they died. Credit Card did not ask to be taken out of his stall and be shot, throat slashed and cut up. She confessed to helping, being there, wanting CC killed, yet you want us to say" oh, maybe her side will be different.
Yea, her appointed lawyers will have an open checkbook to spend of our tax dollars to try to get the jury to believe she stole the horses and stood by and watched the CC get killed because somebody made her mad.
That is the problem today, you can get away with murder and walk free and make millions in the process. Sorry, our justice system is screwed up. Politics and money run it. We need to start making the gulity pay for their crimes instead of playing court games and walking away.
I don't give a rats butt what excuses she gives, what reason she gives, or getting a lesser sentence for selling out her "helpers" . She admitted she did it, admitted she watched CC die, so she is GUILTY
