    What a terrible story for Maye and the officer that was killed. Too bad Maye lost 10 years of his life. Maybe no-knock raids should be limited for officer safety.

    This. There is NOTHING worth risking the lives of the people involved--regardless of which side of the door they happen to be on.

    It's shameful he had to accept a plea to any crime at all. He should have been fully exonerated. But of course that would open the state, sounty, and drug task force open to lawsuits. We can't have that. The war on drugs trumps all.

    I agree, but accepting the plea deal meant he would be out of prison. Its easy for me to say they should have pushed this farther and got him exonnerated but if I had been innocent on death row for 10 years it would have been hard to turn down a deal that meant I got released.

    Im glad he is finally home. It was a big deal when they finally spared him from death row, but he was genuinely innocent all of this time. Hopefully this sort of thing will never happen again, even though we all know it is inevitable.

    believe me, I can relate. It's just sad to see a man defensing his children from an unknown danger suffer a life of future consequences due to a wrongful conviction.
