Ohio Man Cleared of Murder After 39 Years in Jail to Get $1 Million Payment:

An Ohio man freed last year after spending 39 years in jail for a murder he did not commit will receive more than $1 million from the state for his wrongful imprisonment, court records show.

An Ohio Court of Claims judge on Thursday ordered that just over $1 million be paid to Ricky Jackson, the longest-held U.S. prisoner to be cleared of a crime.

“Wow, I didn’t know that,” Jackson told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, which said he learnt of the payment from a journalist.

“Wow, wow, wow, that’s fantastic, man. I don’t even know what to say. This is going to mean so much,” he said.

My Commentary: Tax payers were forced to fund the State’s false imprisonment of this man for decades, to the tune of over $1 million. Now, upon finally proving his innocence in a major lawsuit, tax payers will forced to pay another cool million.

Government: because nothing says “justice” like zero accountability.

Until every criminal member of the government involved is held personally accountable, both financial and criminally, for these sorts of miscarriages of justice, the systemic corruption will continue.
