If you don't know about Cory Maye, then read the summary here. If you do, then you know what a travesty of justice it is that he was ever convicted in the first place (let alone sentenced to death). It's a travesty that he had to plead guilty to manslaughter, but hell, he'll be free.
Radley Balko deserves a lot of credit for this. He's been on the case for years, and brought a lot of attention (and evidence) to the case.
edit: I concur with #33: July 1st shall henceforth be known as Radley Balko Day!
edit #2: I agree with #40: What a great way to kick off independence day!
