A Human Tragedy


I want to bring your attention to this photo essay by Billy Smith II, entitled ‘A Human Tragedy’. He’s interviewed 24 exonerees from around Texas and, in a departure from the normal flash-in-the-pan news stories, found out how their lives have changed since being wrongfully incarcerated.

 

The fact that this appears on the Houston Chronicle website means a lot to me; I think the public is slowly beginning to accept that these stories are all too common. This is a small sampling of exonerees, only 24; read the stories, or watch the videos, and understand that what happened to these men could happen to anyone.

 

I want to applaud everyone that was involved in this project, including the Houston Chronicle for publishing it.

People live their lives trusting in our "system" but anyone who knows about the law will tell u its not always right. Sad thing is that many will believe and trust in the system until they are wrongfuly convicted or punished for something their innocent of. Just because someone is in jail or is being punished for a wrong does not mean they did it but its our human nature to believe what we hear and what we see. But innocent people are locked up believe it or not! (FREE SPM)

Wow! This is amazing how many people were proven innocent. I read how pat lykos took a look at Alen Wayne Porter case and got him free I hope one day pat lykos reads one of Incandesio letter or the one I sent once and just looks at Carlos case and see how theu screwed him over.
Free SPM
Peace&love
