We are so accustomed to our own methods of administering justice and our own rules of procedure and evidence that it is difficult for us to see the faults inherent in our system. Even when what we consider a miscarriage of justice occurs, and some criminal secures an acquittal by sheltering in one of the friendly dugouts for which our law of evidence is notorious, we shrug our shoulders. The referee has given a forward pass just when we were about to score; we may even curse a bit under our breath - and then we pat ourselves on the back for being sportsmen and playing the game according to the rules.
