    I don't think he was actually locked up for that long. It's 25 years since he was accused, but so far as the report says he spent 18 years in prison, which is all the same a travesty, if he turned out to be innocent.

    Very emotional. I can't imagine what it feels like to spend the best years of your life, locked up for a crime you never committed and all the hassle he had to go through to establish his innocence. The world never needed another case to justify the abolition of the death sentence, because we'd already had enough travesties of justice in the civilised part of it by the early sixties. This man's life might well have ended earlier in a Texan prison had the jury been less lenient.
