Once again, thanks for your excellent recap of an extremely important event. The other attendees and I were heartened that Marty attended. I agree that his mere presence bolstered by his written statement will have a profound effect on getting necessary reforms implemented in New York State.

As a retired police investigator, I think the one theme that really struck me was that when innocent people are wrongfully convicted, confined or executed that not only is it an injustice, but the guilty people who escape prosecution are free to murder, rape and commit serious violent felonies. long after the time they should have been apprehended. Who do the victims of those crimes hold accountible?

How can any prosecutor or police agency be "tough on crime" when their malfeasance actually fosters more death and destruction?
