John Stoll is but one of many, many people wrongfully convicted by juries in Bakersfield California. He will receive 5M$ for his 20 years of wrongful imprisonment. Thirty-four other people were similarly wrongfully convicted as part of the exact same witch hunt. http://www.bakersfieldnow.com/news/59395087.html http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/idUS220776+02-Apr-2009+BW20090402 [The above link references a movie (documentary) that was released earlier this year entitled "Witch Hunt". I highly recommend watching it.] Bakersfield specializes in wrongful convictions. It's the only place in America that can meet the state of North Carolina on equally corrupt terms. Sometimes, I suspect they teach each other how to malign and corrupt our system of jurisprudence. If you want to gain more insight on how justice is conducted in Bakersfield, which is truly pathetic, I recommend reading "Mean Justice" by Edward Humes.
