So that means that there are thousands more who were convicted of crimes they never committed who are still serving prison sentences. It is far too easy to convict innocent people in America because of our system of railroad justice.

When a US Senator like Ted Stevens can be found guilty totally because of prosecutorial misconduct, hiding evidence thet would have exonerated him, that should be all anyone needs to know to completely change the way we imprison our citizens.
