An old High school acquaintance,John, who I chat with occasionally on Facebook mentioned to me today that he had been hearing a lot about the Innocence Project and their great work of late in exonerating innocent people.
John is a military fellow floating around on a ship somewhere most of the time and even he has heard of the many people set free because of archived DNA evidence.
It seems we are all hearing this more and more often. Then lets think about the women I talk with. Tiffany Cole, Angela Johnson, Shonda Johnson and Cynthia Coffman are all facing death because of crimes they were not even present for.
The death penalty is not only "iffy" but also erred. This blog post tells us that support for the death penalty is waning in such recent light.
