Our justice system is far from perfect. It’s overworked, understaffed, and too often those with the means to pay high-priced lawyers end up seeing a very different version of justice than their poorer counterparts. Mistakes get made and details overlooked. But compared to much of the rest of the world, the vast majority of our country’s law enforcement professionals are just that - professional.

From the frontline patrol officers to the top criminal investigators, we almost take it for granted that for the most part, our system runs the way it’s supposed to, and the people running it know what they’re doing. The same can’t be said of other countries…like Brazil. Only days after Brazilian investigators surprisingly ruled Canadian boxer Arturo Gatti’s death-by-purse-strap a suicide, a second autopsy performed by authorities from Gatti’s home province of Quebec raised questions about the competency of Brazilian authorities and led investigators to re-open the murder investigation. Duh.
