Kansas is dropping its fight against the compensation claim from a man who spent 23 years in prison for a double homicide before a judge vacated convictions that were secured even though no physical evidence or motive tied him to the crimes, the state's attorney general said Tuesday.

This man deserves to be paid that is the least Kansas can do and that's not near enough. Pay up Kansas.

The money should come from the KCK police pension fund. It was the lying cocksucker KCK cops that caused this.

1.5 Million is a largely grotesque LOW amount. He needs 2 Mil for every year he was in prison. Do not let WYCO get off easy.. do not let this man get underpaid.
