But, I’ve never seen a Wrongly Accused Black Man get paid like this, have you?

Read on:

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) — A federal judge Thursday ordered the government to pay more than $101 million in the case of four men who spent decades in prison for a 1965 murder they didn’t commit after the FBI withheld evidence of their innocence.

The FBI encouraged perjury, helped frame the four men and withheld for more than three decades information that could have cleared them, U.S. District Judge Nancy Gertner said in issuing her ruling Thursday.

The rest of the story is here.

I know what happened to these men is horrible. Being framed for a crime you didn’t commit ranks right up there on the list of truly horrible things that can happen to you. I’m just saying that I look out for these stories, and I’ve never seen a mistreated Black man get THIS kind of restitution from the government.

Once again we see that ALL Injustice isn’t ‘ equal’.
