This is an important story I missed in the Morning News, so it's getting its own post. "Glenn Ford, a black man wrongfully convicted of murder by an all-white jury in Louisiana in 1984," was released yesterday after finally being exonerated, The Atlantic reports. Even though he wasn't present during the robbery and murder in question, it only took the jury three hours to decide he was guilty. "Prior to his March 11 release, Ford had been on Louisiana's death row longer than any other prisoner." I'm not sure what the law in Louisiana is, but usually the wrongfully convicted have no legal recourse after exoneration—they can't sue for damages, they get no help from the state in putting their life back together. Thirty. Fucking. Years.
