WHEN THE WRONGFULLY CONVICTED ARE SET FREE, JUSTICE TRULY PREVAILS

0 6,192

 We continue to support the fine work that  organizations like the Innocence Project provides. We urge our millions of viewers to do the same. For many years, people have ended up in prison because of faulty eyewitness accounts, dubious investigations, prejudice, and even false confessions. By using DNA technology, and other scientific evidence, the Innocence Project has managed to secure the freedom of numerous wrongfully convicted defendants– many of whom have languished in prison for decades. We also laud the work of progressive and ethical prosecutors that take steps to correct convictions that were obtained through wrongful means. We are encouraged by a report appearing in the New York Times that 49-year-old Andre Hatchett, who was serving time for the murder of a Brooklyn woman in 1991, was set free last week. He had spent more than two decades in prison and was released on the recommendation of Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson after a court hearing, the NY Times reported. Justice truly prevails in such circumstances.
