"A story like the Cory Maye story is why you become a journalist," says former Reason staffer Radley Balko."It's probably the most rewarding thing I'll ever do." In 2006, Balko first reported on Cory Maye, a Mississippi man given a death sentence for shooting a police officer who was leading a no-knock raid on his apartment. Balko's continued coverage of the case, and the shaky testimony of expert witnesses, eventually led to Maye being released not just from Death Row but prison altogether.
