Liars, Damn Liars and Governments

The American government has been convicted of falsely charging and sentencing two innocent men for a murder they did not commit. The FBI filed charges against these men intentionally, withholding evidence of their innocence. The men remained in the prison for 36 years before the truth surfaced and they sued the government for the act. As a result of a recent ruling, the government now is obligated to pay $101.7 million to the men as compensation. According to a Justice Department attorney, this for a greater cause, but then so are all of them.
