In scotchland, juries are allowed to return a verdict of "Not Proven"
This means, "Yes, we think the accused is probably gulty, but the prosecution have not convinced us beyond reasonable doubt, because they're weasly two-faced lawyers who are in it for the money, and besides we don't trust the police.".
suggest that four verdicts should be available to juries:
1. Guilty- they did it. Get the hemp rope. Hang'em. Hang'em now. One of us knows how to do the special knot, and there's a handy lamp-post outside.
2. Not Proven - they probably did do it, but the prosecution haven't convinced us.
3. Not Guilty - they probably didn't do this, but they are almost certainly guilty of something (i.e. their eyes are too close together, they're black, they're lawyers, accountants or politicians, or they've been caught being irish in a public place during the hours of darkness)
4. Innocent - not only did they not do it, but the case should never have got this far in the first place, they have been falsely and even maliciously accused, and they should be paid substantial compensation confiscated from those responsible, who should then be taken round the back of the bike sheds for a good kicking.
