Summary: The justice system is not supposed to be a provisional set of arrangements that carefully tiptoes around inconvenience by perpetrating large-scale constitutional rights violations.

About "The Innocence Problem"
This case is very aggressive. Lean hard into the framework, and emphasize that any aspect of the system which actively generates injustice needs to go – regardless of any other concerns. The vehemence of this rhetoric allows you to conveniently wash disadvantages and focus the round on your innocence problem argument. The justice system is not supposed to be a provisional set of arrangements that carefully tiptoes around inconvenience by perpetrating large-scale constitutional rights violations. You’re making a case for ideological absolutism; don’t apologize for the idealism, run with it.
Your attitude towards the opposition case should be outrage. Since when is it morally appropriate to perpetuate a bad system just because eradicating injustice is expensive? Your value is basically the only reasonable way to assess this resolution, and you have legal scholars arguing that plea bargaining overtly damages it.
