DEATH PENALTY: DNA Tests Prove Justice Has Failed

"The Innocence Project, which worked to free Deskovic, only handles cases where post-conviction DNA tests can yield conclusive proof of innocence. To date, it has helped exonerate 184 people, proving that wrongful convictions are not rare."

JAG Hunter: The government has repeatedly refused requests for post-conviction testing in the case of Marine Lance Corporal Kevin Holt. When asked, one Pentongon official "becomes tentative" and promises to "look further." At least four separate requests have been denied. Navy TJAG Bruce Macdonald could order a post-conviction DNA test with the stroke of his pen. And Rear Admiral Macdonald is called upon--here--to issue that order now.
