This guy was falsely imprisoned for 23 years. What would you do if you were in jail for 23 years and then found not guilty after 23 years of no one hearing your appeals?

Sueing for money wouldnt do you much, I mean you wouldnt have to work a day in your life, but you still lost 23 years of your life. Thats twenty three years without being with a wife, a family, and the worst part is that your family thought you were a monster for 23 years.

I think I would just kill the people who put me in jail the first time, and just go back in. Its not like youd have much of a life to miss.


Any thoughts?
sorry if its been done, I search barred. The article came out today

tl;dr? What would you do if you were in jail for 23 years and then found not guilty?

I've heard about stuff like this when I was in school...all these people are being freed because of DNA evidence proving they're not guilty and whatnot...

I would have the government add 23 years onto my life. That or ask for a lot of money.

Well, I could see sueing for millions then using that money to gain leverage over the ones who put you there. Then destroying them like in Saw

I would refuse to leave jail, and if they force you out with strong gaurds kill their familys and wait for the cops at the jailgate with some jailbait.

instead of suing for money... I'd sue for the right to commit a crime worthy of the 23yr sentence I had been charged with... or a series of crimes worth 23yrs...

Yea, it would suck. I would have to kill the people who put me there. I would be so angry, people who are saying cash would soothe them are obviously too young or stupid to realize that they would be missing like 25% of their life in prison

The worst thing is there wouldn't be anything you could do despite sueing and maybe writing a book about it or something. The fact that the government made a monumental screw up and robbed you of more than a quarter of your life is something that can be rectified.
That said, I'd try and make amends. I'd make contact with my old friends and family and tell them everything about what happened, even though nothing can ever put it right.
Then I'd go on a cocaine-fuelled hooker hunt and drive-by binge, I'm entitled to it.

I probably would've killed myself 22,5 years ago, knowing that I'm not guilty.

This, and commit whatever crime I was put in for. Double Jeopardy rules ftw.

EDIT: If for murder, you obviously couldn't go murder that person unless they faked death, but I'd murder the perpetrator as revenge.
