It's shocking, heartbreaking & painfully frustrating to think of the MANY lives who attempt to overturn their WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS & are stonewalled when filing a habeas appeal which then AEDPA prevents the course of justice.

This whole Making a Murderer thing is absolutely sickening...the entire legal system in this country is an absolute disgrace. Let's stop treating each other like animals already.

Wrongful convictions are a blight on our justice system. They are not few and far between; they are more common than people know. An impartial judge should be able to overturn a conviction. No one should have to wait years to gain their freedom if they have been wrongfully convicted.

We are seeing a national crisis develop in our criminal justice system. With the advent of DNA technology, we see 2 or 3 cases of the wrongful conviction of innocent people coming to light every day. There are numerous systemic reasons for people being convicted of crimes they did not commit, but this petition addresses one of the actions we can take right now to get many wrongs righted. People, we have been executing innocent people, abd did not know it. Many of our innocent citizens sit on death row today.
