Caddo Parish, Louisiana – After decades of working to fill up prisons, a lead prosecutor is coming forward to apologize for his participation in the growing police state.
This week, prosecutor Marty Stroud wrote an open letter to a man who he helped put in prison, apologizing for his part in the man’s incarceration. The open letter was addressed to Glenn Ford, a man who spent 30 years on death row for a murder that he did not commit.
Ford was recently exonerated after evidence surfaced proving his innocence.
His letter is very lengthy and revealing, and describes in harsh detail the reality of the justice system that everyone knows but no one will speak.
In the letter, Stroud said:
In 1984, I was 33 years old. I was arrogant, judgmental, narcissistic and very full of myself. I was not as interested in justice as I was in winning. To borrow a phrase from Al Pacino in the movie “And Justice for All,” “Winning became everything.”Ford is one of the longest-serving death-row inmates in American history to be exonerated.
What Stroud did in this case and others in unspeakable, however, it takes a genuine human being to come forward and admit they were wrong, especially in circumstances such as these.
Just after the letter was written, Stroud was interviewed by The Shreveport Times, his interview can be seen below:
