    Every time I hear about one of these cases I get pissed off...do we owe these people something, as a society?

    41 people in 10 years, out of HOW many people?

    And no, I'm not saying he shouldn't be entitled to something - but what? I'm just saying there's no foolproof thing that's going to cover every little possibility.

    Right...but what should we give them? Seriously, I've known people that IMO were wrongly convicted.

    Any innocent person punished is one too many.

    At first I thought the story was about a former inmate of death row. After finding out that it was not, I am in agreement with Dis. Things are going to happen. Justice is carried about by humans, and humans are fallible. This is also why I am against the death penalty.

    Yes, some sort of restitution is in order. What it would be I imagine would vary from case to case.

    I tend to not hang around where there's trouble - I'm smart like that.

    You have a solution that guarantees 100% perfection? Thought not.
