Plea deals in an age of witch hunts

GORDON MACRAE

Father Gordon MacRae (ABOUT), falsely accused and wrongly imprisoned, reveals the injustice of our broken judicial system and the terrible suffering of innocent people who have had no due process. It’s a witch-hunt judicial process: upon an accusation that someone is a witch, she is thrown into a river:

  • if she drowns she is declared to be innocent, but then she is dead;
  • if she survives she is declared to be a witch, and then she is killed.

Thus, an innocent person accused of a horrible crime is thrown into the same river that is the sewer of the present judicial system:

  • if the accused is innocent and cannot fathom taking a plea deal, he will die in prison;
  • if the accused is innocent and does take a plea deal, he will not die in prison, but will effectively live with a dead soul, besides being shunned as a monster by society.

Amazingly, those who are actually guilty couldn’t care less what society thinks, and effectively get off without any punishment for their crimes.

This is the first time Father Gordon has written in such detail of his plea deals and his rejection of them. But as he told me, this isn’t about him, it’s about the broken judicial system which must be fixed. Please read and share:

    Hello Fr
    just wondering if Fr MacRae has been able to resume celebrating Mass? If so, the section of your prayer “might be granted this favor of offering your Sacrifice once again” could be deleted.
    God bless

    Not yet.

  3. If someone wrote a book or screen play using this scenario, it would be rejected as unthinkably ridiculous. What a tragedy! Fr. Gordon is a victim soul. Will Fr. Gordon see justice in this world?

    “Innocence Is Irrelevant” by Emily Yoffe is an article in the September issue of The Atlantic Daily. It tells of the same concerns of a broken justice system.

    Like Mark Smith, and no doubt many other readers, I too had wondered this. Saddened to see Fr George’s negative reply.
