INNOCENT DEATH-ROW PRISONER RELEASED WITH $30 GIFT CARD AFTER 30 YEARS

Prosecutor who convicted him said the mistake had ruined both their lives
After 30 years wrongfully imprisoned for murder on death row, Glenn Ford was released with a $30 gift card.

In an astonishing interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes, the prosecutor who convicted him said the mistake had ruined both their lives. “I did something that was very, very bad,” Marty Stroud told the TV show. “I was arrogant, narcissistic, caught up in the culture of winning.”

Prosecuting attorneys know damn well when its a fudged case. They don't care. Statistics is all they care about. Bad as a dope dealer selling to kids. Known its wrong and still does it.

The race of the prisoner doesn't matter.
