Anybody who sweeps wrongful convictions under the rug with a "that's just too bad" attitude deserves the same stigma and ostracism as a Holocaust denier. You either support human rights or you do not.

Maybe we could pool public funds for these tragic souls and create a collective community for them somewhere, in which they can reside for free and lead a semi-retired existence. Obviously, it's not possible to give their stolen years back! But we can give them a sweet quality of life until the day they die, surrounded by family and friends.

Also, exonerees could earn speaking fees by travelling the country and giving speeches to colleges and other audiences.
