Jonathan Fleming on his wrongful conviction: ‘I never gave up. I had faith’

Fleming spent nearly 25 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. The Guardian spent an afternoon with Fleming as he saw Times Square for the first time in a quarter century


Community Village‘s insight:


How much money are we (U.S. citizens) going to compensate all of these wrongfully convicted people?


How much is 25 years of your life worth?


Why does the U.S. only give $93.00 to the formerly incarcerated once they are released from prison.


People need more than $93.00 to run their life. They need first and last month’s rent at a minimum. They need a job in order to keep their housing and feed themselves.


Not everyone has friends and family to help them. And some of our friends and family can not help or refuse to help.
