BREAKING: A judge has just RELEASED Kevin Strickland, a Black man who spent 42 YEARS in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. How would you suggest compensating Strickland for such a HORRENDOUS wrongful conviction?

It's been a whopper of a day. So much so, that we realized just now we didn't even tweet about a story that is both awesome and bittersweet. Kevin Strickland is finally free, after serving 43 years pursuant to a wrongfully conviction in Missouri. 43 years.

A 62-year-old who spent more than 40 years behind bars for a crime he didn't commit was released today. Under Missouri law, Kevin Strickland is not entitled to housing, counseling, or one penny of compensation.

Missouri has one of America’s most narrow compensation laws. If Kevin Strickland qualified, which he does not, he would have to live to be 104 to receive all of the money owed to him.

Thank you all for your support! All funds go directly to Mr. Strickland, who the state of Missouri won't provide a dime to for the 43 years they stole...

Today, Kevin Strickland is finally home, 43 years after being ripped away from his life and family. It took not just a village, but a movement--all of you-- to bring him home.

Missouri won’t give a penny to Kevin Strickland for the 42 years he wrongfully spent in prison, but we’ll give plenty of taxpayer money to Attorney General @Eric_Schmitt to cover his exorbitant and depraved efforts to keep him there.

While the news about Kevin Strickland being released is fantastic, remember that he won't receive a dime from the state of MO because they have an insanely strict compensation law for wrongful convictions. @The_MIP started a fundraiser for him here:

A US black man has been released from prison after more than four decades after a judge ruled that he was wrongfully convicted of three killings in 1979. Imagine if he'd received the death penalty, as so many US citizens do...

A fundraiser set up by @The_MIP for Kevin Strickland had raised about $37,000 as of this morning. Since his release, it has grown to $207K That’s about $4,900 for each year he wrongly spent behind bars. MO will not compensate him.

Kevin Strickland is exonerated after 43 years in one of the longest WRONGFUL-conviction cases in U.S. history. Mr. Strickland may soon be free but his life was stolen from him. He’s 62 & has been behind bars for 43 of those years. #JusticeSystemReform

Absuelto después de 42 años en prisión. Entró con 18 y sale con 62, por una violación que no cometió, pero las leyes de Missouri hacen prácticamente imposible que sea indemnizado. Se llama Kevin Strickland y, claro, es negro.

Strickland, 62, won't qualify for compensation from the state of Missouri after a judge ruled he was wrongfully conviction for a triple murder in 1979.

Even though the case against Kevin Strickland for 1978 murders fell apart almost from the start, he will get no compensation from the state that convicted him because of a restrictive law that limits payments to the wrongfully convicted. @KCStar reports

While Kevin Strickland was released from prison after serving 42 years for a crime he didn't commit, Kyle Rittenhouse who shot 3 people, killing 2 was taking a victory tour and visited Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Good thing there's no systemic racism in this country.
