Update 12/28/16: I was grateful today to belatedly learn that Mark Norwood was found guilty of Debra Masters Baker homicide on September 23, 2016 [http://kxan.com/2016/09/23/closing-arguments-jury-deliberation-expected-friday-in-norwood-trial-day-9/]. This undoubtedly gave Ms Baker’s family the best holidays they’d had in years, however, this verdict does nothing to fix our nation’s inoperable justice system: it is still perfectly legal for prosecutors like Ken Anderson to break the law; it is still the failed, unenforceable responsibility of mob-like Bar associations to hold prosecutors and their supervisors accountable, all per the United State Supreme Court. No non-profit dedicated to battling wrongful convictions and other injustices is attempting to drain this swamp by insisting that the FBI and Department of Justice reasonably interpret “Color of Law” crimes to include deliberate misconduct. That said, thank you very much to everyone who “liked” Ms Baker’s Facebook page in support of her family’s unnecessarily long – 28 year – journey.
For the First Time Ever, a Prosecutor Will Go to Jail for Wrongfully Convicting an Innocent Man | Mark Godsey
What’s newsworthy and novel about today’s plea is that a prosecutor was actually punished in a meaningful way for his transgressions.
All alleged meaning in Ken Anderson’s punishment swiftly disappears when the truth is told about Anderson keeping his pension and benefits, despite his actions in falsely convicting Michael Morton leading to Debra Master Bakers’ homicide, by the same man who had killed Christine Morton.
The Innocence Project and its affiliates aren’t making much sense; their snake oil promotion of “preventing future wrongful convictions” pretty much makes every day a holiday for actual killers who have innocents serving their sentences, and it’s worrisome that the shifted focus may be related to hefty grants from Bar associations and the Justice Department, both of which can’t document any activity towards holding the likes of Ken Anderson accountable.
Please “like” the Facebook page and let Debra Master Baker’s family and friends know that you care. Thank you.
