25 Years of Injustice


I heard this riveting story Saturday on NPR (yes, it may have been the first time that I’ve ever used the words “riveting” and “NPR” in the same sentence), about a man convicted of murdering his wife. The prosecutors and the sheriff’s department willfully ignored exculpatory evidence which would have proven the
husband’s innocence. When the husband’s mother-in-law reported that the couple’s 3 year old son told her that a “Monster” came in and hurt Mommy, the sheriff told the Mother-in-Law to keep quiet, and to keep the child quiet, too.


At the same time the murderer was free to commit other crimes, including murdering another woman.

Kudos to NPR’s Wade Goodwyn, who usually does excellent work. With this story, however, he outdoes himself.
