EIF Aim #7
Seventh of a dozen aims for the Estimated Innocence Form.
To raise the standard of justice from a failed win-lose binary to identifying degrees of certainty in adjudicated outcomes.
Without the Estimated Innocence Form, you are forced to accept the institutional binary of guilt-or-innocence. You personally know reality is more nuanced than such oversimplified binaries. You know reality operates in matters of degrees, not in simple black-and-white generalizations.
The EIF raises the standard of justice by checking for the degree of certainty in each conviction. Imagine if the original investigation began with the discipline of verifying the degree of certainty in the original theory of guilt. You may not have been wrongly convicted if investigators were held to such a higher standard of justice. You may now demonstrate a higher justice standard in how you can be more responsive to the justice needs of the complainants than the police and prosecutors who objectified them for their own judiciary process ends.
