This man has only 1 life like all of us.. He lost 37 years of it from a crooked and corrupt system... I wish God could give him those 37 years back... To all of us that complain about things in our life, stop for a minute and ask yourself is it worth complaining about? Just think of this man and what he endured and just love every minute of your life

The state has to pay for the 37 years he lost and the life he could have enjoyed and worked for himself and his family. Sorry is not enough.

Incarcerated because he was a poor black kid. The fingerprints didn't match, there were three witnesses that testified that he was home, yet they still found him guilty. My heart goes out to this man.
My cousin is a lawyer and I can hear her threatening the people that did that from here.

I sit here with all types of mixed emotions. I'm happy he's blessing us with his voice....I'm PISSED off the judicial system failed mad 37 years of his life were in awe that he wasn't broken. He had every right to be. In jail for something you didn't do? With no voice? With no one to listen? I'm sitting here with tears of joy and tears of frustration. Thank you Archie for allowing us to hear your journey through your voice.

It's things like this that some people use as reasoning to say God doesn't exist. It's also things like this that prove the existence of God to people who believe in reincarnation and karma.
