Thanks RDT. A terrible shame, but we always knew wrongful convictions could and in fact do happen. It's rare but it happens. Our system has the highest standard of conviction to avoid this kind of tragedy.

What has been shameful is the abuse of this miscarriage of justice as a lever to further excoriate Pres. Bush. As if it were his personal fault, unrelated to the evidence or his responsibility as Governor.

Unfortunately, this will not end that malady known as Bush Derangement Syndrome.

The John Grisham novel I just finished reading, The Confession, deals with the execution of an innocent man in Texas, in a situation where the Governor's aides failed to keep the Governor informed.

So seeing this story at just the time I finished the book was very interesting.

What was most interesting to me in this story about Bush, is that the Director of communications for the Innocence Project, states the he believes Bush would have issued a stay on the execution had he known of the DNA testing request. This isn't some wingnut making this claim; it's a person directly involved with the Innocence Project.
