Having worked now with the Innocence Project of Texas for the past two sessions, I've said several times what a humbling honor its been to work with the exonerees who've come down to the capitol over and over to lobby for criminal justice reforms. I can't over-emphasize how incredibly proud I am of these fellows, who didn't stop fighting when they got out of prison, or even when they received compensation, but kept on pressing to reform the system so the same thing wouldn't happen to others. The Texas Observer has a cover story by Michael May with the same title as this post featuring the core group that's been making it down this spring. Give it a read, and thank God before you go to bed tonight that you've never had to walk the long, hard road these fellows have traveled.
