30 years. Death Row. Innocent.

"According to the Death Penalty Information Center, Mr. Hinton is the 152nd person exonerated from an American death row since 1973."

You'd think people would care more.

William Blackstone would have certainly cared. 153 exonerated, 1404 executed (and we can't and shouldn't presume all of them were guilty). Blackstone would have freed all 1404 to save the 153 their suffering.
