A Just Cause Coast2Coast - Are The Wrongly Convicted Really Exonerated? | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Ethel Lopez of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans. Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Sam, Cliff and Ethel will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person. Our special guest for tonight's show is Wrongly Convicted & Exonerated, Nino Lyons. He will share with our listenening audience his wrongful convictions story and his challenges of transitioning back in to society from prison. A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commitrong. For full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
