Oklahoma’s wretched record on wrongful convictions...

Desertfox is always crying about wrongful convictions so it appears he needs to clean up his own state before pointing fingers at other states...

Oklahoma’s wretched record on wrongful convictions

“Frontier justice” costs too many citizens of all races, creeds, and backgrounds their freedom and their lives. In the old days of the Wild West, vigilantes worked outside the judicial system to punish rivals regardless of their guilt or innocence. Today, outlaws operate inside the bureaucracy to secure criminal convictions at all costs.

Oklahoma — the notorious home of “Hang ‘Em High” executions — stands out for its decades of trampling due process, subverting public disclosure, perpetuating forensic junk science, manufacturing false accusations and enabling official misconduct.
Since 1993, 35 wrongfully convicted Oklahomans have been officially exonerated, according to the National Registry of Exonerations; 15 inmates have been freed in the past decade. Almost half of the state’s exonerees had been convicted of murder; 17 percent for sexual assault. The reign of prosecutorial terror and forensic error by the late Oklahoma County District Attorney Bob Macy and rogue Oklahoma City police department crime lab analyst Joyce Gilchrist resulted in at least 11 wrongful convictions, according to the Innocence Project. Those victims included:
Exoneree Curtis McCarty, who was sent to death row for a stabbing and strangulation murder after Macy withheld evidence and Gilchrist falsified blood evidence and destroyed hair evidence.

Exoneree Robert Lee Miller Jr., another death row inmate falsely convicted of two rapes and two murders based on a coerced confession and atrocious forensic misconduct involving junk analysis of semen, blood, saliva, human hair and dog hair.
Exoneree Jeffrey Pierce, who was falsely convicted of rape in 1986 based on Gilchrist’s misconduct and won a $4 million settlement from Oklahoma City.
Exoneree David Bryson, who was wrongfully convicted of kidnapping and rape and freed after 18 years in prison when Gilchrist’s destruction of evidence was discovered and follow-up DNA testing excluded him as the attacker.
Law enforcement and legal insiders alike have shared stories with me about good ol’ boys club corruption that crosses party lines in the Sooner State. Government prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys routinely cut deals. Judges bend over backwards to preserve “harmless errors” caused by flawed investigations, faulty verdicts and clerical incompetence. Police brass retaliate against whistleblowers. And, according to one veteran cop, Oklahoma City is a hopeless “nest of incestuous nepotism.”

Unlike neighboring Texas, where Dallas County prosecutors founded the first conviction integrity unit in the country (sparking the creation of 30 such agencies nationwide), not a single Oklahoma district attorney’s office has established an official mechanism to review tainted convictions. Nor does Oklahoma have anything like the Texas Forensic Science Commission, which investigates professional misconduct by crime labs and other entities that conduct forensic analyses used in criminal proceedings. The Texas panel was created in the wake of the infamous scandal at the Houston Police Department crime lab a decade ago and its audits led to the more recent shutdown of the Austin PD’s mess of a crime lab.
Meanwhile, no systemic reform ensued after the Macy/Gilchrist disgrace in Oklahoma. In fact, one of Gilchrist’s colleagues who admitted destroying rape kit evidence at her behest was kept on for nearly 15 more years until she mysteriously retired last year amid questions about her DNA testimony.

  • If it is a red Republican state, then it is understood that it will be an unjust state with cruelty towards ethnic minorities. The people in those states elect voluntary or because of election fraud cruel and racist legislators.

    DF does not have the means to clean his own state. And why would you impose that condition that he cannot criticize other states injustice just because it may be happening in his state too?

    Human beings with character speak up against injustices when they see it. But you are a Trumpa Loompa. You wouldn't know.

    But, now, wait a minute ------ you always claim there is no voter fraud, even as recently as yesterday:
    There is no voter fraud. The tyrant and his propaganda outlet are inciting their violent supporters to go rioting in the streets when American people will reject the GOP in spite of the election fraud they commit through voter suppression and gerrymandering.

    Looks like you don't know the difference between voter fraud and election fraud.
    There is no voter fraud. But massive election fraud (conducted by Republican officials.

    Yes. You got it.
    But that was at the primary level and an exception to the rule. Republicans do it all the time at the general elections.
