      This kind of thing angers me because it makes you wonder how many others suffer on death row who shouldn't even be there. A simple DNA test took them 22 years to complete, why?

      Yeah, it is horrifying that it took so long.

      Though, I am quite relieved that he was still alive when they found him innocent - unlike some people who were found to have been wrongfully executed :( ....

      I don't think they had DNA testing all those years ago, but I could be wrong. I like to think he still has a life but when you spend that long on death row, well not much else you can do.
