Nothing quite like the state killing an innocent man

And if there's no evidence against you, that's just evidence that you're clearly a psychopath!

Hurst was also struck by Vasquez’s claim that the Willingham blaze had “burned fast and hot” because of a liquid accelerant. The notion that a flammable or combustible liquid caused flames to reach higher temperatures had been repeated in court by arson sleuths for decades. Yet the theory was nonsense: experiments have proved that wood and gasoline-fuelled fires burn at essentially the same temperature.

Oops. No need to confuse the case with facts, I suppose, it makes a better story in court if you just make things up that sorta kinda feel right.
