We Wanna Know What’s Taking So Long

 

The film Just Mercy opened this week. It is the story of Walter McMillan, who was wrongfully convicted in 1987.

This gross miscarriage of justice happened because those in power — the sheriff, law enforcement and the DA — all conspired to convict McMillan to bring closure to the community for a crime he had no part in.
