We are currently facing a worldwide pandemic due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. We need to listen to our experts and follow the recommended social distancing guidelines. We have that freedom. Those who are incarcerated do not. Elderly inmates and those with pre-existing conditions are in grave danger. Please contact your local politicians and voice your concerns. We are all in this together.
According to the National Registry of Exonerations, there have been 2,577 exonerations in the United States since 1989. This number is staggering. Over the past quarter-century, America has incarcerated more people than any civilized nation on earth. A disturbing number of those incarcerations have been wrongful convictions. Hundreds of exonerations can be credited to advanced DNA technology. But research on topics like, bite mark evidence, fire investigation technology, and shaken baby syndrome, have all played a significant role as well. The ability to distribute information via the internet has also proven to be an invaluable resource when fighting wrongful convictions.
Exoneration statistics show that we are on the right track, but we have a long way to go. We need to correct the mistakes we have made, all while working to reforming the system which allowed those mistakes to occur in the first place. Sadly, the wrongful conviction problem is far more pervasive than most people realize, and even with increased interest, most cases continue to lack the attention they warrant. Many innocent people remain in prison. They need others to be their voice. Please join us in the fight to free the innocent.
