    It is as I have said; we are nothing more than 3rd class citizens in the eyes of these people


    WASHINGTON – An ideologically divided Supreme Court overturned a $14 million judgment given to a former death row inmate who was convicted of murder after New Orleans prosecutors withheld evidence in his trial.

    14 million sounds a little excessive, but he should have gotten appropriate compensation for the time he was in jail and damages to his future wages because of the time wasted not being able to get an education or work experience. $150,000 isnt enough for 18 years

    they seem to pay around 10-20 million for wrongful convictions, depending on the amount of time spent in custody. Mahir Arar got 10 million for being deported to Syria and tortured. David Milgaard got 18 million i believe but he spent nearly 30 years in jail.
