I've always been disgusted with how we just throw out inmates with hardly any compensation after they are exonerated from crimes with DNA evidence. It's always bothered me, we unknowingly robbed these people of so much of their lives and then give them hardly anything in return. I thought this was a beutiful story of a state trying to right their wrongs. Good job Texans!!!!! Texas DNA exonerees find prosperity after prison - Yahoo!

I like what they're doing, but it's definitely worth it to everyone involved to get it right the first time.

Cheaper too.

Texas is righting alot of wrongs of the past and it has many here repenting of their sins and God is blessing this state mightly for it. I don't know what His plans are but I see he has protected this state for himself, bringing other from other states here and an uplifiting energy felt like I never felt in other other three to five states I have traversed these past 4 years...you are blessed saints in Texas...you better know this and praise Him for his hand of protection.
