  1. Even though he got released from prison, it still may be impossible for him to move on. Losing 29 years of his life for a crime he did not do is devastating on all accounts. Even if he does sue, will it still help? Not quite sure.

  2. Sadly, he isn’t the first person wrongfully convicted but I hope he’s the first to be properly compensated as the the others before him got pocket change, if any at all and or just an apology.

  3. Heartbreaking💔💔 There are not enough words to describe the injust that some have and still have to endure. I don’t know this man but I’m wiping tears thinking about what it must feel like to live in constant fear because of other people’s ignorance, stupidity and pure hatred. I pray that those who inflict or participate mistreatment to another human being or living creature be judged when their time comes. Happy that this man is no longer behind bars. And hope those responsible have to pay big time!

  4. and how is this man compensated for his time and wrong jail time… i would have DEMAND millions from the state and make every attempt to personally sue the prosecution if they are still alive

  5. You all talking about how much money this man should collect or owed to him before things even reach that stage..I hope his family and the relevant authorities put some form of counseling and evaluation in place for his integration in to society..let’s face it 29 years in prison is a longtime and I guess that poor man has seen and experienced somethings no human being should so while he is happy and everyone is happy I am sure there are scars…we don’t want in another 6 months god forbid ..he snaps and take out a school or a church full of people..so kudos to the justice system which prevailed in this case and right the wrongs …but going forward too much is happening,already happened for civil society not to be wary of these matters…I am happy for you sir …God bless

  6. You can bet the ones involved in his wrongful conviction will never pay for that injustice. It’s also very interesting that the overwhelming majority of those who were wrongfully convicted look like him. Justice is supposed to be blind, but those administering the injustice are not. Their person bias and bigotry usually rule their decisions.

  7. How very sad, no matter how much compensation he gets, they can never give him back the 29 years that he lost being locked up for a crime he didn’t commit. Justice delayed is justice denied. Bless his spirit for being strong. Praying that he will live life to the fullest from now on.
