Just to add color to this story because the headline is not clear: the woman was in fact raped by someone else, but she happened to "see" this man's face in a dream. Still fucking awful that this is the state of our society.

all black guys looks the same yea?

[–]get_real_quick2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Another factor that makes this so much more tragic: the unquestionable criminalization of black maleness

Not to sound like a "rape apologist", but 28 years seems a little excessive? i didnt read the story though...

[–]bigeyedbunny[S] 20 points21 points  (7 children) | Copy

It was 48 years, but after 28 years they realized she was a serial liar, so they set him free

[–]kireol19 points20 points  (2 children) | Copy

women hold wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much power in this world. We need to take some back.

[–]MinkusTheCat2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I wouldn't make the generalization that women hold too much power, I'd say stupid people are given too much power. The problem is that any woman can screw over nearly any man she wants because of how our laws are set up and people are going to take advantage of that. From custody battles to rape accusations, men are at a large disadvantage simply because of the fact that they are men. Taking the gross amount of sexism out of our laws is a good place to start.

The day a stupid man can send a woman to jail for 30 years because of a dream, I'll agree with you.

[–]jace811 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fuck, thats worse than Steven Avery, he was "only" in for 18-19 years.

[–]aanarchist0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

please tell me he got some sort of compensation for the law having failed him. if i was in jail for 30 years because some lying bitch put me there, i would expect to be set for life by the government.

[–]bigeyedbunny[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

No compensation will ever give back to this man his youth and his best years of his life back

[–]aanarchist1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

my thoughts exactly, still though he should get something.

[–]Destroya121 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is why I'm so glad I'm gay.

[–]bmorehalfazn0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Reminds me of Brian Banks. This is just so sad. I wonder how much he went through during his 28 years in jail...

Can't seem to find anything about the accuser getting charged with perjury or a fine or jail time or anything - anyone have something?

[–]bigeyedbunny[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Nothing happened to the false accuser.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

how is this possible as there surely must have been a lack of evidence to convict him?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Do you reckon it would be worth it to actually just kill the woman for doing such a thing to you, and then actually deserve your time in prison?
