Hordes of Real Americans (TM) descended on Washington this weekend as the Teabaggers held their "Sept. 12" march and rally. You know, the kind of event where people are so patriotic they fly Confederate flags and call for the president to be sent to Kenya. It's all part of the continuing outbreak of Aggrieved White Man Syndrome, which is what happens when a privileged group begins to lose the prestige to which it feels entitled.
Curtis Edward McCarty was convicted and sentenced to death twice for a 1982 murder in Oklahoma City. After repeated court battles and 21 years in prison - 19 on death row - McCarty was exonerated and released following a 2005 appeals court ruling based on new DNA evidence and findings of a "continued pattern of government misconduct." McCarty was the 124th person in the United States to be exonerated and released since 1973 after spending time on death row.
Jo Ann and Dave talk with McCarty about his experience and his struggle to win his freedom.
