My close family friend was imprisoned two years ago for a crime he didn't commit- incestual rape. He was crushed to find out that his daughter would even think that he did that because even though he wasn't her biological father, he took her as her own. She was diagnosed with schizophrenia and sent to a mental hospital, so it is clear she must have been lying. Yet even though they couldn't prove him guilty because there was no evidence saying he did it, no DNA test or anything, they kept him in prison for over a year. He got out only on a plea bargain, which forced him to register as a sex offender even though he never did anything wrong. He was a great guy and always made me happy as a child. He had lost around 50 pounds and was traumatized by the time he got home. Now he will never get a good job because his record is ruined forever. Oh, and on top of that, he will face many years on parole.

Then my current significant other was arrested for a crime he didn't commit- terroristic threatening to commit a school shooting. He would never do that, he is a very sweet person that was stuck with the wrong people, who went to the principal and accused him of it. There was no evidence, just hearsay, and it disgusts me. He was imprisoned, but only for a day since they proved him innocent. They should have checked evidence long before arresting him. He was told it is off of his record, especially because he is a minor, but he is not sure. He used to want to be an astronaut and now bashes his self-esteem thinking he will never become anything.

There have been many more like them that never leave, and even get executed. Legal justice practitioners should gather plentiful evidence before ever convicting a person. And even if they are found to be innocent or cannot be proven guilty they should be free of all charges for the case on their record.

Because if their charges are not cleared when they were never guilty, that isn't justice, that's cruelty, which is unconstitutional.

SIGN TO STAND FOR THE FREEDOM AND CLEARING OF INNOCENT PRISONERS!
