  1. Thank you for this crucial resource! What an important clearinghouse for educating and for shedding light on this global crisis. Thank you for this and all your incredibly important work on behalf of justice.

  2. We at PNG offer up a congrats to Professor Godsey & the numerous WCB team members for stepping into the mix with both feet.

    Hopefully, as a CrimProf Blog contributor and ‘Editor’ at the ‘WCB’ we’ll see claims of actual innocence having absolutely nothing to do with DNA, Death Row & Open/Active cases be highlighted?
    Regardless of which direction the ‘new’ blog takes, there’s plenty of room on the ‘injustice’ band wagon and you have our 100% support.
    Note: the great state of confusion AKA: Texas is a gold mine. Thanks.
