Ohio Men Wrongly Convicted of Murder Released After 39 Years

Two Ohio men who were wrongly accused of murder had all charges against them dropped and were released after nearly four decades in prison on Friday, NBC News reported. Ricky Jackson, 57, and Wiley Bridgeman, 60, said they don't harbor bitterness over their unjust punishment. “I had plans for my life,” but “time is just something that you can't get back so I'm not going to really cry about it,” Jackson said. Jackson, who was originally sentenced to death, is the longest-held U.S. prisoner to be exonerated, the Ohio Innocence Project said. The two had the charges against them dropped after the witness, who is now 53, recanted his testimony last year, saying he was coerced by detectives, according to court documents. Read »

Police Agree to "Rules" for Ferguson Protests

Police will follow "rules of engagement" sketched out by Missouri officials when dealing with demonstrations that are likely to follow a grand jury decision in the case of Michael Brown. Authorities and protest leaders have met five times, as recently as Friday morning, to discuss the rules, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said. He said officials agreed to most of the proposed rules, but rejected others that would have inhibited officers' ability to protect people and property. Meanwhile, the FBI and other federal agencies sent teams of agents and officers to Ferguson ahead of the decision, which is expected to be announced by the end of this weekend, and President Obama urged protesters to remain peaceful. A grand jury is deciding whether or not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Brown back in August. Read »
