People wronged by the criminal justice system face a long road to compensation

“Even if Bennie Starks was completely innocent; even if the police manufactured evidence against him, lied to the grand jury, and lied at trial; even if expert witnesses practicing a unscientific form of analysis falsely implicated him; even if he lost 20 years of his life due to all of this, no one is liable. Bennie Starks doesn’t get to collect a dollar from any of them.”
