Anthony Ray Hinton walks out of Jefferson County Jail, along with his lawyer Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative in Birmingham, AlabamaBy Wayne Hester BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (Reuters) - Anthony Ray Hinton walked out of an Alabama jail a free man on Friday after almost 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit. Greeted by well-wishers with cries of "Praise God" and a crowd of photographers and reporters, Hinton dabbed away tears and said: "For all of you out there snapping pictures of me, I want you to know there is a Lord. "For all who say they believe in justice, this is the case that proves it is true," the 58-year-old Hinton said. Hinton was convicted of the 1985 slayings of two fast-food managers, but new testing did not match crime scene bullets to the gun found at his home.

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 04/04/2015 - 02:04

Dane Shoemaker, left, passes a pair of skis across a creek to Mary Small, right, as they set out toward a peak known as Winter Alta in Sequoia National Park, March 30, 2015. The area is typically blanketed in enough snow to ski across the creek, but a paltry snowpack forced skiers to hike their gear on trails, across streams and up rocky slopes to reach the snow. A group of friends have taken this trip through deep powder, braved icy slopes and weathered rain, wind and snow in an annual quest to reach a ski cabin in the wilderness of Sequoia National Park for the past 13 years. The fourth year of the devastating drought that has dried up wells, forced mandatory rationing and jeopardized California crops has also put a burden on backcountry skiers in search of their fix.
