  • If you live in a state that begins with a MI or a WI, you probably have a racist in charge.

    Change that or get out.
    Guilt by association is hard to avoid.
  • Let's play "Guess the Party".
  • Over 40 years in prison, for a crime he didn't commit.  The witness says it wasn't him.  The prosecutors say it wasn't him.  Even the farking people who did the crime, say it wasn't him.

    WTF, Missouri!

    This guy, if he ever gets out of prison, is going to own the State
  • Because cruelty is the point.

    Gretchen Whitmer's actually pretty decent.
  • A different way to understand Parsons:  What does guilt have to do with whether a black man should be in prison?

    Probably?  You could say that about ANY state or government if you go back far enough
  • He's been waiting 40 years. Who is ahead of him in the queue? You can't tell me that it would take more than a couple of hours work for a staffer, and about 10 seconds for him to sign the pardon or commutation or whatever.
  • Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker has called for his release. Federal prosecutors in the Western District of Missouri, Jackson County's presiding judge, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas and members of the team that convicted Strickland also have said he should be exonerated.

    Of course Parson is going to do nothing. He'd rather let Kansas City (and St. Louis for that matter) burn than do anything that might help them.

    I hate this state sometimes, and I really hate the one-party good ole boys club known as Jefferson City.
  • Just remember that the GOP claim to be Christians.
  • Maybe he needs someone to show him how to do it.
  • Every day, every motherfarking day, the Republican / conservative / Qanon / Trump humpers get worse.

    I guess you missed this part of the article..

    "If Strickland is released, he will not be eligible for compensation from the state. Missouri compensates only inmates who are exonerated through DNA evidence, according to the Midwest Innocence Project"

    Are Christians supposed to be the good guys?

    Not sure when that's been true.
  • vudukungfu: If you live in a state that begins with a MI or a WI anywhere Republicans hold leadership positions, you probably have a racist in charge.

    FTFY. To be a Republican, you're either a racist or don't find racism (and other bigotry, and corruption, and fascism in general, etc.). to be a deal-breaker.

    /Which is really just a long-winded way of saying 'you're a racist' twice.

  • There are so many farked up things in that story, not least of all Parsens.

    If they actually did what their savior told them to do, yes.

    Nope. MO only allows wrongful conviction claims if you're exonerated by DNA evidence. There's no federal statute that would grant federal courts jurisdiction over state wrongful convictions.

    The only racists in Wisconsin are the republicans in charge and the cops. At least Wisconsin's governor is a democrat vetoing all the bullshiat that the republicans are passing. Overall the people of Missouri love's the republican corruption and are actively voting it in. Wisconsin is actively trying to get rid of it, and failing.

    Yeah but if you pardon him then people will get falsely convicted on purpose and get free room and board in prison for a few decades until they decide they didn't actually do it and seek a pardon.

    /I someone's mind this probably seems plausible

    How about federal kidnapping charges for those who have kept him in jail?
  • But everyone remember: institutional racism totally doesn't exist, that's just a hoax by antifa crisis actors

    Everyone involved in prolonging injustices like this deserves to get the opportunity to get to share some communal underwear of their own.
