This has brought me to my knees, figuratively, after reading about the blatant abuse of power and withholding of evidence by the DA and the lead detective. It can't get any worse. All, from beginning to end, should be disbarred and prosecuted.

DNA exoneration raises tough questions in Tex. - CBS News

Texas Man Imprisoned For Wife's Death To Be Freed

In that same vein, I know many say they believe Darly Routier (?) is guilty beyond a doubt in their minds. I am not. Don't want to redebate it. But, they have stonewalled her DNA testing on something (cant remember what it was) and she is facing a death penalty. Why the delay ? It has been years. I am beginning to hate Texas' brand of perverted justice. I am pretty conservative but this whole thing is sick and scary....

Yet another tragic story of wrongful conviction out of Texas. This is really sad. Like the OP, I don't like Texas' brand of justice. Apparently, it's been going on for decades since it has been referenced in Hollywood movies. Even Louise (of Thelma and Louise) didn't want to drive through Texas to get to Mexico. She knew what the law was like.

All humor aside, it's time Texas prosecutors undergo a thorough investigation. It reeks of corruption.

There is no doubt in my mind there are others in texas jails who have been railroaded. Scary and sad.

Now, wasn't it in Texas that a county medical examiner was busted for fabricating the evidence she presented on the stand? They had to go back and re-examine dozens of convictions. That's pretty pressing in Texas because so many people go to Death Row for, like shoplifting.
