      On July 26, 2007 a federal judge awarded $102 million to two
      remaining defendants and the families of two others who spent decades
      in prison because in 1967, FBI agents considered the four
      men "collateral damage" in their war on the Mafia and lied about
      exculpatory evidence. Henry Temelco served 18 years before he died in
      prison, Louis Greco died after 28 years. Joseph Salveti's sentence
      was commuted in 1997 after he had been locked up for 29 years. Peter
      Limone served the most, 33 years, before being released in 1991.
      They were convicted on the basis of testimony by Joseph "The Animal"
      Barboza. He was lying. "FBI agents Dennis Condon and Paul Rico not
      only withheld evidence of Barboza's lie but told state prosecutors
      who were handling...the investigation that they had checked out
      Barboza's story and it was true."
      What was the government's argument in its own defense: "Federal
      authorities cannot be held responsible for the results of a state
      prosecution," and "...federal authorities had no duty to share
      information with state officials who prosecuted the men."
      So if you don't think the FBI, Philly PD, and god knows who else
      could have and would have planted evidence and lied in order to
      convict one of the most vilified defendants in the history of
      American law, you need to get your head out of wherever it's stuck.
