Ray Hinton & David Ranta. The story remains the same.

Fact - It wasn't until last year -- after evidence emerged that Scarcella and Chmil had fabricated evidence and coached witnesses during the trial -- that Ranta was freed. He had spent just over 23 years in a maximum-security prison outside Buffalo. The day he was released, Ranta suffered a heart attack, from which he later recovered.

Fiction (Brand of Justice) “So you hear? That prosecutor done gone and set you up. They, the cops, have it figured Toppan did it. They got all kinds of evidence . . . man. Knife was in the truck, Rogers blood on it, everything. They call that a misprision of justice or something . . . Dub.”

Fact - “When you think you are high and mighty and you are above the law, you don’t have to answer to nobody. But I got news for them, everybody who played a part in sending me to death row, you will answer to God,” Ray Hinton said.

Fiction (JusThis) Corruption is and always has been imbedded into the fabric of governmental systems. When a simple truth is revealed that might be construed as threatening, action is quickly taken to silence the voice of truth. The status quo must be maintained. Words are used to confuse and impede. The reins of power are held tightly in the hands of a few privileged individuals.

Is it Truth or is it, Fiction? You be the judge. I wonder if the players in the system will ever feel remorse? Ray Hinton seems to think so.
