Justice is tricky 

This is a superbly written long article about Michael Morton, a man who was proved innocent of the crime of murdering his wife by compelling DNA evidence, but only after spending a quarter century in jail. All Innocence Project cases are inherently fascinating and troubling, but Mr. Morton’s story is particularly chilling because his original prosecution seemed more like persecution — egregiously incompetent and vindictive, seemingly all for the sake of satisfying the ego and political goals of the sheriff and district attorney.
