Just US – Its a Business Exploiting Others for Personal Gain

Project Innocence has been operating as a counter-balance against a justice system the is complete insane. In the federal prison, only about 4% of the people are even there for violence. The Ohio Project Innocence has won a victory where men have finally been released holding the record for the longest wrongfully held – 39 years.
It was 1975, Ricky Jackson and two other young black men were charged and convicted of the murder of a white businessman in Cleveland. The sole evidence against Ricky was testimony provided by an alleged eyewitness, who was 12 at the time. Ricky has met that child who is a man today. He has bluntly stated that he feels no anger. He understands the system and that the witness is typically rehearsed and coerced and becomes a victim of the system themselves.
