Fourth of July
This July 4th, we echo the sentiments of the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Editorial Board from two days ago: “If America is to be the truly great country it should be, facts and truth have to carry the day…”
We at Georgia Innocence Project recognize that in a democratic society, and within that society’s courts, accurate, reliable science must be the baseline, and there must be some shared sense of reality, historical events, and factual truth. Otherwise, Georgia’s wrongfully convicted don’t stand a chance at freedom, and eventually, neither do the rest of us.
Have a safe weekend!
