Here’s yet another case of a black man being exonerated for being charged
with a crime he did not commit.  But, this story is a little different … this time, the victim and the man, once he was released, became friends … best friends. The two even travel together in an effort to educate those of us that do not understand the process they use when showing people a line-up.

She was raped and gave a police sketch of what the person looked like.  When
she saw the photos she fixated on a man consistent with the sketch and stuck
to it.  She fixated on one pic and her brain was programmed from then on.
But the man in jail looks eerily like the other man.  They could nearly pass
for twins … fraternal, of course.

Read here for more details on this unlikely friendship.
