Another false conviction finally reversed

This kind of thing is why I'm opposed to bad practice in the justice system. Racism isn't the only problem, though racism amplifies bad practice.

"The case went cold until 1999, when investigators reopened the case. Police interrogated Davis' girlfriend several times and she ultimately changed her story, implicating Davis and herself in Hylton's death, the NCIP said."

Excessive interrogation and plea deals are part of the problem.
