Man set Free after spending 38 Years in Prison for False Rape Conviction

Article here. Excerpt:

'A Louisiana man Malcolm Alexander has been released from jail after serving 38 years for a false rape accusation.

The Innocence Project, a non-profit which secured the release of Alexander, shared his story, from his journey to prison in 1979, to his eventual release.

DNA evidence proved that his conviction – a result of an incompetent lawyer and an unreliable identification process – was wrong.

The events that led to his conviction are a little more complicated: Alexander had had consensual sex with a white woman who asked him for money and then accused him of sexual assault.

The woman’s accusation was found to be uncorroborated, and the police dropped the case.'

38 years

that's over twice the nat'l average (17 years) of time falsely accused (and proven innocent) men usually spend in prison. wonder how many innocent men don't have access to accidentally saved d.n.a. evidence from another era? hundreds have been freed so far.

I don't know which is worse, feminist hatred of all things man, the total corruption of our once honorable judicial system by same, the incompetence of law enforcement, or the total lack of empathy and support of their fellow man.

remember, 'all women should always be believed'.

and its only going to get worse.

maybe the presence of more and more cameras and other recording devices watching our every move will prove tech once more comes through to save mankind, just like in the movies.
