According to a new report by the National Registry of Exonerations, over 2,000 people convicted of a crime between 1989 and 2012 were later exonerated.  Many of the exonerations came after it was discovered that police officers deliberately framed hundreds of innocent Americans for drug and gun crimes. 

Even more troubling, of the 2,000 people later exonerated – 101 of them were sentenced to be executed – serving decades on death row until they were finally released.
