John Grega has already been in jail for 18 years for a murder he may not have committed. New testing from the victim’s body has produced another man’s DNA and the tests have shown a lot of these DNA “fingerprints.” So, if Grega has already been thrown in prison for almost 20 years and there are some serious doubts that he is guilty, why not release him now? How long is long enough for a crime he may not have committed? If the authorities that are steadfastly against releasing Grega were dealing with a family member rotting in jail who may be innocent, would they hold to the same ironclad position? (refusing to consider he may be innocent) I seriously doubt it! If Grega was a cop or somebody “important” who may be innocent, he’d be out now.
This double standard in our courts is disgusting! When will the public wake up to this? This case is not about Grega only. It’s about the courts acting in an arbitrary manner. Is justice really equal in America? Hello! It’s always the same thing. Apathy rules our society. But, when the crap hits closer to home people wake up. If it’s somebody else’s problem, nobody gives a damn!
