At least the "republicanazis" in Texas voted and passed a law that compensates the wrongfully convicted and Punished. Maybe the dems in Oregon and Washington should consider passing a bill like Texas has

Yes I do know that I have taken Michael Anthony Green's case out of context, but had he actually been executed and 27 years later was subsequently found to be innocent, no amount of compensation would repair that damage.
I would also state that IMHO you cannot compensate for taking a mans life for 27 years and think that throwing money at him will adequately compensate him for not only his suffering but also his Family.
It would be so better if those that wrongfully prosecuted him were to suffer a penalty, perhaps in that way, greater dilligence would be paid to assembling and proving evidence, rather than reliance (in Court) on the rhetoric of a silver tongued prosecutor.
We in the US are learning what the results of having a silver tongued orator will have on all our lives.
Unfortunately, there's no "zero doubt" situations in any human enterprise.
That's why I oppose the death penalty.
