Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
How should we pay back exonerated prisoners?

So I was reading the newspaper this morning, and there was an interesting article about a feller who has been in prison for the past 27 years here in Richmond, VA for a series of serial rapes he totally didn't commit.
Reading this, it's pretty clear the dude is gonna be freed sometime soon. It's abundantly clear he was misidentified.
This makes me wonder
How can we compensate people like this? Do we have an obligation to? Do we give them anything? I have no idea. It seems to me, though, like someone falsely imprisoned by the state for 27 years is totally entitled to some compensation.
