Let’s face it: most of us don’t want to believe that wrongful convictions really happen. And, if they do happen we tell ourselves that they must only happen very very rarely.

We must look these problems in the face if we’re ever going to bring about substantive criminal justice reform.
You can help raise awareness by sharing the stories of exonerees, by sharing this post, by supporting your local innocence project, by simply talking to friends about these issues.
Here’s a powerful and short video that reminds us of how very wrong our system can be.
