One thought on “Dying African-American Prisoner Freed After 40 years…

  1. “Both men said they were innocent from the start, arguing they were framed for their politics and protests. Supporters say no physical evidence ties the men to the murder.” I read these two sentences and honestly thought, “Why am I not surprised?” We allow Zimmerman to walk free even with solid proof of his crime, but we place a man in solitary confinement for years for a crime that he very possibly did not commit! I am starting to wonder if we should only allow those of the same race and ethnic background to try a person in the court of law because clearly personal racial views have been getting in the way for far too long.
