ProducerKhalil Cumberbatch
DescriptionAccording to the National Registry of Exonerations, between 1989 when the first DNA exoneration took place and 2017, there have been 2,161 documented exonerations in the United States. There were 139 exonerations in 2017 alone and, of those, at least 96 people were exonerated as a group. How are people exonerated as a group? Well, at least 96 individuals in Chicago and Baltimore were exonerated in 'group exonerations' after it was revealed that law enforcement was systematically framing individuals for drug crimes they did not commit.
