Thousands of innocent people are released from incarceration every year. Most of them are released because they served their sentences. Between 5k and 10k people are wrongfully convicted each year. The Univ. of Mich. Law School Innocence Clinic says most wrongful convictions are caused by:

Eyewitness Misidentification 
Junk Science 
False Confessions 
Government Misconduct 
Snitches 
Bad Lawyering

The U.S. Supreme Court has not determined that actually innocent people have a right to have their post-conviction evidence considered by courts. We will consider it on this show and make a human rights demand.
