Is the U.S. Executing Innocence People?

A Preliminary Report of the Grassroots Investigation Project
Footnote to Introduction
 Once death row inmates have been killed, it becomes very difficult to absolutely prove their innocence. In these cases, the weight of the trial and appeals process has been stacked against them. New evidence has not been tested by a court of law. New witnesses have not had the opportunity to be examined and cross-examined.
