Allow juries to do their own research

I believe that juries should be allowed to do their own research into any case that they are hearing and deciding on. If you are on a jury and have to decide on something then surely you should be allowed to investigate the facts yourself. One of the key reasons this wasn't possible before is that the courts weren't allowed to talk about previous convictions. Now, most previous convictions are unveiled to them anyway. So why shouldn't juries be allowed to do their own research into the evidence and facts in the case?

Why is this idea important?

Change the test of all courts to beyond any doubt whatsoever based on the evidence

I would like to see the test in all courts changed to "beyond any doubt whatsoever based on the evidence". I don't think the test of "on the balance of probabilities" is tough enough and leads to miscarriages of justice in the civil system. I also think that the test of "beyond reasonable doubt" in the criminal courts isn't tough enough. If people on the jury or a judge has any doubt at all then they shouldn't be convicting.

IMPRISON VIOLENT CRIMINAL TAG OTHERS ELECTRONICALLY

THE PUBLIC FEAR MOST OF ALL, CRIMINALS WHO ARE VIOLENT TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY:-

Suerly there is no need to keep fraudsters,pickpockets,verbal abusers,tax evaders, perjurers illegal whistleblowers,and the like behind bars ?They could all be tagged electronically where they normally live (or in a hostel if they've got nowhere else) with one hour's liberty per day and immediate prison if the curfew is broken.At present electronic tagging is not monitored strictly enough due to cost but that cost if monitoring were ruthlessly thorough would still be a lot less costly than keeping the non violent prisoners in jail !

Murderers,muggers,rapists,burglars,thugs,dope dealers,knife users, physical bullies,violent drunkards,and violent road ragers should all serve 3 times the sort of sentences they are at present given as there would be plenty of room in the prisons to keep them with all the non violent prisoners "cleared out"!

Various laws would have to be changed to give effect to these proposals.Legislation could be a little complex, but a great deal of money would be saved in the long run;
