The Innocence Project

I chose to spotlight the innocent project, because this is not an uncommon event. It happens, and as a society, we must be the "bigger person" and correct our wrongs.

Subscribe to USA TODAY

There is a time for everything, and sometimes for whatever reasons, innocent or malicious there are those among us that sit imprisoned unjustly...those that deserve to be home. I dedicate this section to Miss. Faye Brown. I am no lawyer; I have not reviewed the case as such. She has been convicted, she has served her time. But I do know that if ever one would feel that I was called and challenged to help set the captive free, God must have meant her. Enough said. To you my friend, "Meet the Browns".

The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal clinic and a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
Most clients are poor, forgotten, and have used up all legal avenues for relief. All they have is the hope that biological evidence from their cases still exists and can be subjected to DNA testing. All Innocence Project clients go through an extensive screening process to determine whether or not DNA testing of evidence could prove their claims of innocence. Thousands currently are waiting for evaluation of their cases.

They hope that this raises awareness and concern about the failings of our criminal justice system. The prospect of innocents languishing in prison or, worse, being put to death for crimes that they did not commit, should be intolerable to every American, regardless of race, politics, sex, origin, or creed.
