Timothy Cole Posthumously Cleared

With thanks to the Innocence Blog for the heads up:

Associated Press: Judge Clears Dead Texas Man of Rape Conviction
National Public Radio: Judge Posthumously Clears Man Convicted Of Rape

In my opinion, it's not possible to say justice was done here, given all that Timothy Cole because of this false charge, including his life. But all the same, I'm glad that his name has been cleared, for him and for his family.

I've been having to argue the position that this case is in fact "race related" and that it is not the media trying to turn it into a case about race . . . which tells me we haven't come nearly as far as we think we have.
