Wrongful executions have been documented in the US Justice System and these are some of the cases where seemingly innocent men were sent to their deaths despite not having committed for the crime they were said to have committed.
What innocent people have been put to death? Are there innocent people killed by capital punishment? In the justice system there are cases that slip through. It is an unfortunate flaw that for some, means that a wrongfully accused innocent is sent to death-row. In some of these cases the inmate was granted a full pardon after their execution. Still some are still being considered to this day, though there are many that believe them to be wrongly accused.
