Ronald Cotton - served 10 years
Stephan Cowans - served 5 ½ years
Larry Fuller - served 19 ½ years
William Gregory - served 7 years
All these cases - and others of course. What about those people where no DNA evidence exists?
Justice is blind. "Beyond a reasonable doubt" doesn't mean we always get it right, but the amount of times things go wrong leaves me feeling cold. We should at least try to do a better job. Of course the fact that all these men are black, and the victims were white just adds to the consternation. One was sentenced to 210 years. (Does that even make sense? Oh, yeah, I forget that a year in the criminal justice system isn't always a year.)
