A correction to “Michael K. Ausbrook and the snipe swarm”–He has worked for free

Now, I am even more amazed at Michael’s work. See the post immediately preceding this one. 

He has done it all for free. All of it.

Michael explains:

I  have truly not meant my experiment as charity. I have just fronted the money to run the experiment. Had the cases come back losers in the first couple or three years, I would have moved on to something else. My idea is that there are cases that can be identified as probable winners in federal court and that they can be won. If that idea has support in reality, then my vision is that there should be offices in every state doing the work, just as there are Innocence Projects everywhere. (Innocence, schminnocence, I say. Some of my clients are innocent; others aren’t. They have all been demonstrably cheated by the Indiana state courts and are serving legally undeserved extra decades in prison as a result.)

I’ve gone on and on again. The point is pretty easily made: There isn’t a living in what I’ve been doing, but I think there should be. With the recognition of the Gideon Award and now the really wonderful post you put up, I begin to get the credibility necessary to start going hat in hand to likely sources of material support.
