True Crime Video by Blind Injustice Channel
The Blind Injustice Channel is a Youtube channel created by Registered Nurse and Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Donya L. Winters. The videos she makes are telling the stories of wrongfully convicted people. These people have been proven to be innocent by the Innocence Project. Donya is working to bring the stories forward so people will know that some folks are locked up for crimes they did not commit.
She goes by the name of Donya Lee Drinks as she narrates her videos with a drink in her hand. She does a lot of research on the cases she presents and makes the video entertaining.
She enjoys true crime and felt this was something she could do to help people. She wants to find the real killers. But locking up innocent people is actually stopping the real killers from being found. Every innocent person who is released, basically re-opens the case to find the real killer. That’s why she supports The Innocence Project. She got her Certified Legal Nurse Consulting certification just so she could volunteer for them.
The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal group who work to help innocent people get released from prison. They had this to say about themselves,
“Realizing the power of DNA testing in ending wrongful convictions, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld founded the Innocence Project as a law clinic at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1992.
The Innocence Project has since become an independent nonprofit and continues to stand at the vanguard of criminal legal system reform by restoring freedom for the wrongfully convicted, transforming the systems that unfairly incarcerated them, and advancing the innocence movement.”
You can learn more and donate on their website. The Innocence Project.
This is Donya Lee’s third video. Her first video told of The Innocence Project and why she created the channel.
Her second video involved Maurice Hastings.
This current video, “Ghosting, Taco Bell and Wrongful Conviction” is about Kirk Bloodsworth who was wrongfully convicted and spent years in prison till he was freed by the Innocence Project.
Each video she makes gets better and better as she learns more about how to get the most impact from her videos.
Donya is working to help raise money for the Innocence Project. Every DNA test costs $1,000 and the state is not giving money to help set people free. So, this money comes from donations.
If you love True Crime and want justice for victims. Then, helping the Innocence Project will save innocent people, keep the focus on real criminals and free up resources. Not only that, it is a tragedy that our legal system which was originally set up to prevent oppression, can be used to lock up people who are supposed to be considered innocent till proven guilty.
Here’s Donya’s video.
