By the way, put in perspective, the smorgasbord of dishonest hucksters surrounding/advocating for punks like Skinner should speak for itself. A good example is "Dr." David Protess--former head of the "prestigious" Medill Innocence Project (Skinner touts so much); now head of his very own "prestigious" innocence project in Chicago after being unceremoniously fired from Medill for academic/professional dishonesty.
Plainly put: these guys make up "facts." They manufacture outlandish claims to putty up holes in these convict's stories without giving it a second thought. Why? Because most people, who buy their propaganda, aren't into checking facts. Heck, most of these fine folks couldn't put 2+2 together and hope to get an answer in the single digits! They don't care.
So don't fret. The truth is still on the side of the victims. Guys like Protess can't manufacture stuff that survives in the courtroom. Their pieces break apart somewhere around "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth."
