Restitution for the Highers Brothers

What do Tommy and Ray Highers get for the 25 years in prison, all the agony they've been through, the damage to their reputations, the loss of a chance to have a normal life all those years? What do they get out of that? What do they get in return? Nothing. Michigan has no Wrongful Conviction Compensation Statute, so they walk out of prison with absolutely nothing. Please help Tommy and Ray start a normal life again.

Just a couple of statements from strangers -

"To see victory over an evil injustice doesn't happen often in this world. These are special men that I will never forget all my life. They inspire me to think that no matter how bad things get or how often darkness consumes the light keep fighting and make the best of life. VICTORY! CONGRATULATIONS HIGHER BROTHERS!!!!" - Lynn Walsh

"I HOPE THE TWO OF YOU ARE DOING GREAT AND LIVING THE DREAM! GOD SPEED Its a shame there is no financial restitution! God is GOOD!" - Mair V Frichtel

"I can't even put into words how incredible these men are! I was in tears watching this episode. Most people would be so bitter (with good reason!!) They deserve to be financially compensated big time and won't be. Sad! If there was somewhere we could donate, I'd be there! Kudos to them for their wonderful attitude and for that, good things will happen to them." - Debbie Shephard

"These two guys are AMAZING!!! To have gone through what they have gone through yet have no animosity and to CHOOSE to not look back. Looking to their FUTURE shows they TRULY take nothing personally & are excited about what lies ahead. Which is to teach all of us to always do - never take anything personally. Move forward. These guys are so positive and inspiring. This story gives all of us every reason to never give up! A true definition of Hope. Best wishes to both of you guys! I fell in Love." - VO Oh
