Faces of the Innocent

For those that just don't get it:

From LA Weekly, May 16 - 22: Injustice for all by Sara Catania

All told, the men and woman portrayed in The Innocents served nearly 560 years for crimes they did not commit. By visual count, it appears that 28 are black, 14 white and three Latino... Judging from the case summaries and interviews accompanying the portraits, all are lower-middle-class or poor.
