Leon Benson an African American man, has been an innocent prisoner in the state of Indiana struggling to obtain his over due exoneration the past 13 years with no luck. He is falsely convicted of the crime of murder.
With every claim of innocence there must exist corroborating evidence (i.e. physical, DNA, technical, or testimonial evidence). And in his case the exonerating evidence is testimonial. So, the search for truth will come down to examining one persons statement over another. This task was given to 12 jurors. Unfortunately, in today's American society a white person's word is still valued over a black person's word, no matter how illogical the white person's word may be. And this point is evident by how Christy Schmitt's (white person) illogical identification of me being the killer - let alone the other evidence the contradicted her testimony and identification.
Being that the exonerating evidence in his case is testimonial, He has provided those actual documents in an organized way to demonstrate his actual innocence. What is bad about cases such as his is bent on testimony from the prosecution and defense is that there is room for the perception of that testimony to be undermined and manipulated by the prosecution, which is what happened in his case.

The Fourth Amendment is being inexorably bled to death. The latest wound, in which a unanimous Supreme Court determined that police officers may use drug-sniffing dogs to conduct warrantless searches of cars during routine traffic stops, comes on the heels of recent decisions by the Court that give police power to taser defenseless motorists, strip search non-violent suspects, and break down people's front doors without evidence that they have done anything wrong. If this trend continues, John Whitehead warns in this week's vodcast, the Supreme Court might just take the Fourth Amendment down for the count.
