Barney Brown 38 yrs of wrongful imprisonment is the ongest in the history of the United States of America. His wrongful imprisonment at age 14 for a crime he did not commit is one of the most grievious injustice and cruelest punishment to a child.
In September 2008 Barney Brown was exonerated and set free but not compensated by the State of Florida. He was not even given an apology for the pain and suffering. Compensation would send a clear message that such human rights violations are unacceptable.
