Not in the system
Imagine how much of the world has changed after spending half a century in prison. This guy, who was convicted by a racially biased jury, was sent to jail in 1968 and released in 2018. Apart from all of the changes in society and technology, there was one thing that shook this poor fellow to the core.
He didn’t have any ID. His birth certificate had probably disintegrated while he was left to rot behind bars. After his release, he had no way to find work, to get a driver’s license, to go to school, nothing. He was virtually a dead man when he got out.
