    We have no justice system in the US. Think about it. If you have money, you have a good lawyer, subsequently you get away with a crime. If your poor and have an appointed defense attorney and your innocent your going to jail.

    Just look at OJ Simpson. He hired an expensive (costing $4 million), high profile legal team. He got away with the brutal murder of two people while his children slept inside. While Jessica Coleman a pregnant teen who had her baby in a bathroom and fainted landing on top of it and killing it (involuntary manslaughter) was sentenced to 6 years in state prison. She was only 15 at the time of the crime.

    Is this justice? Or the result of having money?

    Money is always the answer.

    Not true even though it appears that way many times. In a more recent case a former mayor of Atlanta - with plenty of money - was indeed found not guilty of taking bribes, etc. but WAS found guilty of income tax evasion. Could get him as much as ten years at sentencing.

    And since most trial stories NEVER even make the news, especially the national news, you cannot make any accurate statements at all about how many charged with lesser crimes are found not guilty. I once attended a superior court session and saw several people charged with crimes simply walk. And not a one of those cases ever appeared in the news.

    So your speculation about "no justice" has no basis in actual truth.

    It's the same in many countries.
