There was no evidence whatsoever that Barry committed that awful crime, just the confession of a scared young man. There are other cases that false confessions are coerced out of innocent men just so the police have someone to blame. It was very cruel to let him out and then send him back.
The 18 months he was out, there was nothing but exemplary conduct on his part, going to many religious ceremonies within the native american community and out. Talking at many different places regarding his experiences.
Thirty years is enough time for him, especially that he is innocent, this is not justice.
