While the state may have beat Adnan Syed in court sixteen years ago, maybe it shouldn’t have. In fact, the prosecution’s case was full of discrepancies, unsupported claims, dubious conclusions, contradictory statements, and conveniently forgotten information.

So far, not many prominent Americans have tried to use the college rampage as an argument for gun control. One reason is that we are in the midst of a presidential race in which leading Democratic candidates are aware that endorsing gun control can cost them votes.
