Innocence Is Difficult To Examine
A fundraiser set up to help a Missouri man who served more than 42 years in jail for a triple murder he did not commit has reached $1.5m (£1.1m).
Kevin Strickland was freed on Tuesday at the age of 62. He had maintained his innocence since his arrest in 18.
It was the longest wrongful incarceration in state history, but under Missouri law, he is not entitled to receive any financial compensation.
So his lawyers launched a GoFundMe page to help with his living expenses.
As of Sunday 16:00 GMT, it had reached $1,511,440.
Lawyers for the Midwest Innocence Project, who worked for months to help free Mr Strickland, praised the more than 27,000 strangers who had donated.
Justice Met But Not In The Right Way
Kevin Strickland spent over 42 years behind bars for a crime he never committed. The law enforcement verdict, no financial compensation. If I had been in his shoes, I would have killed this group & filled it in, saying I had already gone imprisoned before the crime.
Nonetheless, somehow their ass have been saved by 27,000 strangers, or I see no reason for him not to commit this crime. As practicable, law enforcement authorities should send thank-you cards to 27,000 contributors for saving their lives.
