You are convinced that the justice system will work for you. You have faith and honesty on your side, but is that enough? Meet Kirk Bloodsworth. He spent his life on Death Row. Kirk, only became free because of the advancement of DNA Testing. Without DNA, Kirk would not have a chance to tell his story. I am always watching “Locked Up Abroad.” The stories always have one thing in common, they are never given a chance to defend and exonerate themselves; until they have entered the prison system. Some people have months, and some people years that are stolen from them, unjustly. What can someone say to you when you have lived over 15 years behind bars, as an innocent person? Why the hell would anyone except an apology?
Think of all the moments that Kirk will never have a chance to experience, and all the important family events that he unfairly missed.
