Sir, I listened to your show about Carlton Gary and, well, it's more of the same. Some poor shlub railroaded by a racist system and having to move mountains, even after it is obvious that he WAS railroaded, to get free.
I don't recall hearing about whether or not there were any more rape/murders in Columbus,Ga. after Mr. Gary was arrested.
What an amazing miscarraige of justice, but again, just more of the same.
