There is a simple answer to this question. To observe first hand, go to district and superior court. Watch the antics of the attorneys and the judges. Watch all of the bargaining, the shuffling of cases, the plea deals. Watch the obviously guilty criminals walk right back out the door with a big grin on their face, knowing full well that they "slid through" the turnstyle once more.
This is our legal system, these are our judges and this is your answer.
