if justice were blind, wouldn’t Dallas County be freeing more white folks by way of DNA evidence? You know that chick (Justice) is peeking through that blindfold every chance she gets.There have been a handful of white Texans exonerated - Brandon Moon comes to mind. And we mustn't forget 24 Latinos set up and later exonerated in Dallas' fake drug scandal, plus the horrific Austin case of Chris Ochoa and Richard Danziger. But Shawn's got a fair point: For whatever reason it's hard not to notice how many Texas DNA exonerations have involved black men falsely accused of sex crimes.
As an aside, in Tyler, which is my hometown 90 miles east of Dallas, the statue of Lady Justice famously doesn't wear a blindfold to peek under! (An earlier model was rejected depicting her thumb on the scale.)
