Christine Mumma: Pursuing justice

Regarding the Aug. 31 news article “DNA evidence may free 2 in major Robeson case”: There are many important lessons to be learned from the Brown and McCollum cases: the importance of the work of the Innocence Inquiry Commission, including the access and objective authority it has; the value of the national DNA data bank for solving crimes and investigating credible claims of innocence; the importance of recording interrogations, uninterrupted from start to finish; the fact that even when so many have so much confidence in a conviction, we remain human; and, very important, that the prosecutor is the “minister of justice” and justice may not stop after a conviction.
