Late one night in 1994, 19-year-old Richard Miles called his roommate from a payphone on his way home. He was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Part 4: Kwame Ajamu

2020-03-1043:3511

Kwame Ajamu was 17 years old when he, his brother, and their friend were convicted of robbery and murder in 1975. The only evidence against them was the fabricated testimony of a 12-year-old boy. Still, all three men were sentenced to death. In this chapter, Kwame describes how education became his refuge during his 28 years in prison, and how his personal transformation would turn him into the man who would exonerate the three, and eventually find the love and support he needed.
In 1988, 22-year-old Christopher Ochoa was working at a pizza chain restaurant in Austin, Texas, when a tragic crime and a coerced false confession shattered his life and tore him from his family. Chris relates the harrowing events that led to his own wrongful conviction, and his forced implication of his coworker. Despite painfully dark moments in prison, Chris explains how compassion from others helped him endure -- and how finding his own compassion drove him to become an attorney and advocate.

Part 6: Antione Day

In 1990, Antione Day, a 28-year-old father of five and musician, had just returned from an out-of-town gig when he heard that local police were looking to ask him some questions about a recent robbery-homicide in his neighborhood. He had no idea that his freedom -- and his family -- would be ripped away from him for over a decade. In this episode, Antione talks about how his wrongful conviction also robbed his children of the father they needed, but with love and time, they are on the road to healing.

I believe that people seeking paralegal certification an/or law degrees should be required to work for a year in a jail or a prison with people wanting to reduce or overturn their sentences!!✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻✊

These stories are horrible and beautiful all at once. These things should never have happened. I think hearing these stories are so incredibly important and everyone should hear these stories. To know that bad things are and have happened and that it's not ok. But also to know that people can prevail and that's precisely why we need change. Because people are worth it and hard work needs to be done to facilitate change. Listen to these stories and sit in the hurt with them.

These people's stories are horrible and beautiful. They make me so angry, and then remind me that human spirit is so tenacious. Despite the US prison systems best efforts.

perfect example of the shit so called humans that controls the prison system, to put this man in the same cell of the guy that killed his son is fucking cruel and they damn well know what they were trying to do.
