Mississippi sent two poor black men to prison for a combined 30 years

And they are innocent. Surprise, surprise. The same deputy, same prosecutor, same "expert" witnesses - yet no one thought it strange that two different men were charged for raping and murdering three year old black girls in the same area? No one thought it strange that a supposed dental forensic expert said the girls had dozens of bite marks that were made only with the upper teeth (how would you even do that?)

This takes a while to watch, but it's fascinating - and disturbing.

NPR had a whole series about flawed death investigations.
