This statement is telling...

Chief Justice John G. Roberts said that such an allowance risked “unnecessarily overthrowing the established system of criminal justice.”

Don't we all think the established SYSTEM of criminal justice should be to determine innocence or guilt? Evidently Roberts believes whether innocent or guilty, the SYSTEM must be maintained. Roberts is convinced potentially innocent people should remain in prison because to question the innocence of a person after conviction would "unnecessarily overthrown" the SYSTEM. Never mind innocent people are spending decades in prison for crimes they didn't commit.

We should all examine the "established SYSTEM" to which he refers, it is our duty as citizens.
