NC justice

The news is out: [The governor of North Carolina granted pardons to five men convicted of crimes they did not commit, including one man who spent 44 years behind bars.
Governor Roy Cooper said he took action so the men “might be better able to move forward in their lives.”
Ronnie Wallace Long, 64, was released from prison earlier this year after serving more than four decades on a wrongful rape conviction.
Mr Long, who is black, was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of rape and burglary in 1976.
His conviction was vacated after a judge found evidence from the crime scene had not matched Mr Long but had been withheld by law enforcement.]

44 years for a crime he didn’t commit. Could only happen to a black man.
