Red Justice

According to the Moscow Times, if Kriston manages to get himself arrested in Moscow, he will most assuredly go to jail. Well, actually what it said is that Russian courts run an acquittal rate of .8%. Which is double what it was last year. So less than 1% of defendants are found not guilty. In the U.S., this rate is more like 17%, and approaches 30% in big cities. And this is why, when the militsia asks for all your money, you give it to them. Right?
