    As for only getting 2 million.. gezz.. it should be 10s of millions at least.
    I would take it before a jury and make the corrupt state of Texas pay out their redneck asses for what occurred.

    How is Texas any more corrupt than any other state? What gives you the right to call them all rednecks? Seriously, your stereotypes are irritating and immature.

    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

    I prefer people who have true moral issues with the dealth penalty other than asking for a perfect system
    There are several who would have been, were it not for the delays introduced by the lengthy appeals process so often decried by fans of capital punishment.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    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.

    Read my first sentence over again. I don't condone the death penalty unless there is 0 doubt. If a guy confesses, then give him the death penalty if there is also some sort of proof to back it up. He shouldn't be confessing if it isn't true. Like I said, certain cases you CAN be SURE, in these cases the death penalty should be on the table.

    Unfortunately, there's no "zero doubt" situations in any human enterprise.

    That's why I oppose the death penalty.

    2+2=4 and I have "0 doubt" about that. I have no qualms about sentencing someone with the death penalty in a case where they confess.

    Maybe they're confessing to protect someone else. Maybe they've been pressured into confessing.

    A confession is a long, long way from absolute certainty.
