All of the open cases above involve defendants who endure wrongful prosecution because they sought to protect themselves or someone else.

~Terrell Scott is a mentally challenged black man who reported that children were being neglected and abused. The allegations were investigated and found to be truthful.

Prosecutor: John Morganelli, Pennsylvania
~Shannon Nyamodi is a black youth who rescued a Caucasian woman when she came out of her house screaming. She had been shot.

Nyamodi has been held over a year without trial. Prosecutor: Sam Currin, III, North Carolina
~Henry Magee is a Caucasian who lacks wealth. He and his pregnant girlfriend believed they were experiencing a home invasion by criminals when police staged a predawn raid on Magee's mobile home.

Ken Anderson vs. Justice for Michael Morton
It is not right to prosecute people for protecting themselves or someone else. The Bible says:
This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth;To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death. Psalm 102:19-20
God Judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. ~Psalm 7:11
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern. ~Proverbs 29:7
Should Prosecutors Be Allowed to Own Private Prison Stock? (Conflict of Interest)
America imprisons more people than any nation in world history. That is because America is the first nation to make punishment for crimes a private enterprise that uses inmates as slaves. The one and only way to eliminate mass incarceration is to move big business out of government. Tell elected and appointed government officials to DIVEST OR RESIGN. We are in this grievous position because of decision makers who serve their bank accounts rather than constituents. As corporate owners and investors, government officials, including officers of the court, have a serious conflict of interest. Only removing the conflict will eliminate the problem.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. ~ 1 Timothy 6:10.
Law Enforcement Against War on Drugs
The war on drugs has unequivocally failed to meet a single one of its stated goals. We have bravely fought the war on drugs for more than 40 years – arresting, prosecuting, and imprisoning at ever-increasing levels. We have spent well over a trillion dollars and made more than 39 million arrests of nonviolent drug users.
How Do Prosecutors Decide Whether to Seek the Death Penalty?
Number of victims, money, public opinion . . . There is a formal layer and an informal layer to a prosecutor’s decision to seek the death penalty. Statistical analyses suggests that unconstitutional factors such as race and gender are involved . . . Some prosecutors’ offices rank the state’s aggravating factors by priority, pursuing the death penalty more often in cases involving multiple or random victims, torture, police murders, and murderers with prior violent offenses.
Matthew 25:32-41, 46 (King James Version)
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
