    from the great state of North Carolina--

    http://www.wral.com/half-brothers-to-go-free-after-convictions-overturned-in-1983-murder/13943907/

    lest anyone think this is unique, the very first episode of Kojak, "The Marcus-Nelson Murders," was pretty much about the same damn thing. a kid (guess the race) in Brooklyn coerced by cops (guess the race) through various means into false confession and prosecuted (guess the race) with zero physical or forensic evidence and exculpatory evidence suppressed by the prosecution.

    The Kojak episode/tv movie is based on true story (pre-Miranda ruling, so the kid didn't technically have right to counsel but it was so egregious, it was mentioned in Supreme Court Miranda ruling) of George Whitmore which is fictionalized to bring Telly into it etc but... (Also, in Brooklyn, the murder charges were so ridiculous-- despite the erstwhile "confession"-- he was never convicted, they just rode his ass on a likewise fake assault/rape charge.)

    Hopefully law & order folk here-- especially those upstanding lawmen and women among us-- are hyped to see the cops and D.A. now prosecuted.

    And lest anyone forget that scalia specifically pointed to these two brothers as a perfectly good reason for upholding the death penalty....their guilt was beyond dispute :jj:

    I didn't say great state of NC ironically; at least they have a procedure, however, belated, to redress this.

    The Scalia quote is amazing, isn't it?

    Funny how many people were-- rightly-- up in arms about the Duke lacrosse case and have little to no interest here.

    Here's the latest on the local beat--

    http://www.robesonian.com/news/home_top-news/50249273/Judge-frees-McCollum-Brown#.VAc-L1ZcPwI

    and here's the original scumbag prosecutor, Joe Freeman Britt-- who should rot in prison, along with the cops who got the 'confession'-- gloating about his record in 1986--

    http://articles.latimes.com/1986-06-29/news/mn-373_1_death-penalty

    Unfortunately, except for rare examples like that Duke case, it's very very difficult to pursue and prove prosecutorial misconduct on the criminal level and Bar Associations, as I understand them, are near powerless to do anything professionally.

    Let me guess, neither the OP or his second-in-command has donated to support Dawgs.

    They were probably guilty of something. Close enough.

    I don't like providing personal information to a forum. in fact, if @dawg sends me an address then I'll send him $60 for the year....unless your boyfriend lasertits steps up, like he suggested he would
