What's really sad is, in many of these cases, the wrongfully accused have no legal recourse in suing for damages. The legal system simply says "Oops, my bad."

Yes, and the legal system should be held accountable. Responsibility and authority go hand in hand, and shouldn't be less true when one has the upper hand.
