Why don't these guys have a Nobel Prize?
As founders of the Innocence Project at the Benjamin N Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University in New York, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld have been directly involved in getting the wrongful convictions of 179 inmates reversed.
Trip this: a majority of those were on death row!
Sickens me to think that there might have been innocents wrongfully executed by the actions of bad cops, DAs, etc. A total shame as these bad apples are probably only a fractional percentage of good, honest police officers and district attorneys.
Still, 179 is a lot, especially since the crimes are extremely violent, with the wrongful convictions allowing the real perps to go free. To commit more crimes.
Therefore, my prize for Humanity goes to Barry C. Scheck & Peter J. Neufeld.
God bless you guys.
