A notion of “Wrong Conviction”

By convicting an innocent person, means failing to find the culpable person guilty and setting the latter free. Not only is it unfair to cause an innocent person to suffer from injustice punishment (Type 1 error), even worse is that the truth is buried up ever since the point of time when people wrongly believe that they have already found the truth (Type 2 error). For this reason, it is worse to convict innocent people than to acquit guilty people.

A notion of "Morality"

A group of chimpanzees were kept inside a cage. There was a ladder in the middle of the cage. A banana was placed on top of the ladder.  Every time a chimpanzee climbed up the ladder, freezing water was poured upon all the other chimpanzees. After such an action was repeated for several times, anytime a chimpanzee tried to climbed up the ladder, the others stopped it by beating it up. After a while, no chimpanzee dared to climb up the ladder despite the temptation of the banana.  In this experiment, some kind of “moral standard” developed spontaneously among this community of primates inside the cage. (cf. the “code of conduct” in the human society)
