    Exonerated inmate, 52, wins professional boxing debut

    A 52-year-old cruiserweight who spent 26 years in prison for a murder he did not commit won his professional boxing debut Saturday night. Dewey Bozella defeated Larry Hopkins by unanimous decision in the four-round match at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
    The pugilist served time in New York's Sing Sing prison after being found guilty of murder in 1983; his conviction was overturned two years ago.
    ****ed up/Corrupt justice system took a quarter of this man's life away from him. At the very least he spend his unfortunate time in the pen being productive instead of letting the **** heads with power win.

    I not so sure one should blame the system in these cases. The story doesn't go into details about his case but it could have been a faulty Defence Lawyer, false evidence planted by police, A judge that allowed bad evidence, or a jury who were given both sides but felt his was guilty.

    I have been on jury duty in both civil court, and criminal court several times and it's not like you see on TV, it's hard when someones future is at steak based on what you believe from what is presented in court.

    All of that happens but I think the big thing is he never gave or in to the rage it would have produced in me.

    I think it's great that a man of his age could do what he has done.

    Basically what we have here is an arguement not for someone who took a bad situation and made the best he could of it, but rather one where everything in the world is corrupt and screwed up because it didn't work perfectly each and every time.

    If that's your standard you are in for a lifetime of bitter dissapointment.

    Being in prison falsely for that long would certainly leave me with a lot of pent up anger. Man would I hate to be the other boxer.
