A year-long AP investigation has uncovered new evidence and myriad inconsistencies in the police investigation of 

His co-defendants have confessed to the crime that tragically took the life of 11-year-old Tyesha Edwards in 2002, saying Burrell was not even there. For years, one of them has insisted he was actually the trigger man. 

“I’m the one that did this,” said Ike Tyson, serving a 45-year-sentence. “I did it.”

The Minneapolis police declined to comment for this story. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is confident the correct person was convicted.

Klobuchar’s campaign spokesman: Burrell was tried and convicted in Tyesha’s murder twice, and the second trial occurred when Klobuchar was no longer the Hennepin County Attorney. 'If there was new evidence, it should be immediately reviewed by the court.'

Did the NY Times and other papers miss this when they endorsed her?

Imagine if the people were in charge. She would never be in a position of being asked to end her campaign. Klobuchar? Seriously??? I guess those campaign contributions will be put to good use later during the legislative sessions.

I am glad this is getting out there, but if that NAACP really wanted to hit it harder, not just "ask," he should be putting out an op/ed all over SC and in the Super Tuesday states, AT A MINIMUM.


I may even call with that suggestion.
