Death to the death penalty
This is a pretty frightening story. Even though $2.25 million doesn't come close to making up for having to spend 18 years on death row as an innocent man, it's good to know that Mr. Washington is getting something for his suffering. One single case like this should be enough to turn every sane individual against the death penalty, but unfortunately it lives on in 38 states. At the very least let's stop executing mentally retarded people.
