John L Washburne
John L Washburne was convicted for first degree murder in 1995 at the age of 20 under the felony murder rule. His felony was assault; he had hit a woman in the face with his bare hand. Moments later that same women was killed by 58 year old Bobby D Hooper without the help of Mr. Washburne. Bobby Hooper was sentenced to 10 years in prison and has since been released while Mr. Washburne sits behind bars for a crime he did not commit while the murder is free to roam the streets. The fact the Mr. Washburne is black and Mr. Hooper is white is probably not a surprise. How in any world or frame of thought could this be called justice?
