    It's clear that nobody in this country cares about innocent people being put in prison for crimes they did not commit. Maybe that's why nothing is done about it.

    But it's important to remember that nobody is immune to being wrongfully convicted. Any one of us can end of in prison for a crime that we did not commit. And as gay men we have a lot more to lose than a straight person since gay men are not exactly welcomed in our prison system. So keep that in mind.

    care to elaborate...

    I know first hand how easy it is to be wrongly incarcerate, just drive the same make and model vehicle as a known trafficker--fun times.

    Not sure how gay men have more to loose; according to popular fantasy porn, going to prison is hot.

    Gay men face rape and other forms of physical abuse in prison more than heterosexuals do. The porn that you watch does not depict the reality of being gay in prison.

    Since you've posted the same thread multiple times and all you post about is prison topics, do I assume correctly you've been wrongly imprisoned?

    No, I have not. I'm one of the lucky ones. But that does not mean I should not be concerned about others who are wrongfully imprisoned. Our justice system is terrible. I'm trying to make others aware of this problem. And especially gay men who are more likely to be raped, abused and even murdered in prison.

    Americans have definitely watched too many episodes of Judge Judy.

    He's definitely got a stake in this topic somehow or another.

    I agree. And not judging you if you had been....just curious that that is the only topic you've ever posted about (aside from a goatee thread.) It is definitely a problem but not sure what to do about it. Any suggestions?

    At least he's not blaming it all on race.

    I promised myself that I'd join the "Innocence Project" at some point within my career. I'm not ready for that just yet but I'm working on it.
