    A
    hh that Texas injustice. Sure DNA was not around back then, but it should not have been needed....



    On top of this, not mentioned here, but information also not released to the defence back then.... his wife's credit card was used 2 days after the murder, and checks were cashed 9 days after.. all which were situated in his wife's purse which was missing after the murder... and yes, he was in jail at the time so could not have done it.

    Just another example of how corrupt the US justice system can be, when prosecutors constantly dont give the defence all the material they have and abuse their power to put innocent people in jail because they either are too lazy to do their jobs or are so corrupt that they dont give a damn as long as it gets them re-elected.

    Because of this, an innocent man has been rotting in jail for 25 years... hope he sues the **** out of the state of Texas and gets millions in damages.
    And the Spanish justice system is perfect.

    It's not a Texas exclusive, it happens all the time in plenty of other cases.

    When it is clear that the Prosecutor was guilty of withholding key evidence from the defence he needs to be doing time.
