    Very compelling article. Can you imagine how many people have been “railroaded” over the centuries and sent away when they were innocent. I remember as a youth studying the Lindbergh baby case, and of course the Hurricane Carter saga which was made into a film with Denzel Washington (also immortalized by Bob Dylan in a long a rambling song). It’s often been said that we have a terrible system of justice, except when you compare it to every other one in civilized history. This is why I don’t believe in the death penalty. Too many people taken off the streets by overzealous authorities who for one reason or another want to get a case solved. In 1989 I was a juror on a murder one trial where this happened. It is a long and sad story, one of the most difficult weeks of my life. For me it was only week…for the convicted man a lifetime without possibility of parole.
