i know this happens more and more often, but shit. the testimonies were lies (cop says to a teenager who was couldn't pick someone out of the lineup "pick they guy with the big nose") and even after the actual criminal's wife admitted his guilt of the murder, they still didn't let him out until almost two decades later. wtf? the guy better get more than a "o shit, our bad..." for that

In USA those happen more often than in Europe becose in USA they use civilians lay judges. In Europe they are professionals who can judge (if i'm correct?).

The man seems to be half finn becose Ranta is finnish name.

It happens mainly due to some cops having a "all criminals should go to jail" mentality without there actually being sufficient evidence sometimes. What is often the case is that these cops have some sort of bias, be it racial or not.

As for your question, people in Europe go to school to learn how to become judges. In the US, most judges are lawyers that are either elected or appointed by governors or the President.
