Abstract: »This article provides an exploratory qualitative examination of wrongful criminal convictions. Using the stories of Cornelius Dupree Jr. and Anthony Massingill as case studies, we explore the extent to which eyewitness misidentification has led to the racially disparate treatment of Black males from the criminal justice system. We find that post-conviction DNA evidence and testing has had a profound effect on the vacated sentence and exoneration of Black males. Finally, we conclude that the terms "Black male", "criminal suspect", and "racial injustice" are so interwoven that only definitive DNA evidence and testing can correct this miscarriage of justice.« (Source: Africology)
