A long road to justice

Recently a 21-year-old man was found not guilty of murder by an El Paso jury.

He had been in jail since August 29, 2013 while he was waiting for trial.

This quote comes from a Times article about the situation:

“It’s not a secret.  Mr. Montoya (one of the prosecutors) said it in his close, ‘I wish we had proof, but we don’t.'”

We deserve better
