You are to write a 750-word, single-spaced essay in response to the proposal included in the Prompt. Since some essays written in the class represent group efforts, I must emphasize that this assignment is to be completed individually. Of course, I expect that you will do research to gather evidence for your essay. All cited research must be from peer-reviewed journals and books or highly respected newspapers and magazines*. Be sure to properly and fully cite all sources obtained in your research efforts that you cite within your essay. The essay’s text should, of course, be entirely your own work.

Many cases are settled through plea bargains without a trial because our legal system just does not have the resources to continue with our current system of "innocent until proven guilty." Luckily, advances in technology provide us with a possible solution. Since we can now cheaply produce electronic sensors, we can and should mandate that each person in the United States be outfitted with multiple cameras and listening devices so that they can maintain a complete history of all their movements. Given this, and the ability to securely store each person's information so that only that person can access it, we should change our system of justice to use the principle of "guilty until proven innocent." Then when a person is charged with a crime at some specific time, the person can, if he or she wishes, rely on this personal database of activity to show where (s)he was and what (s)he was doing at the time in question. Such a change would make justice more fair, as the electronic data would be much more reliable than human witnesses and would also significantly reduce both the backlog of court cases and plea bargaining made necessary by our current overcrowded court systems. * While you may use Wikipedia to gain background information, you may not cite Wikipedia or similar sources in your essay.
