Host Bob Edwards talks to NPR's Wade Goodwyn about the release from prison of 12 black residents of Tulia, Texas, who were convicted of dealing illegal drugs on the sole testimony of one white undercover sheriff's deputy. No drugs were found, and the deputy has since been indicted for lying under oath. Altogether 38 people, most of them black, were convicted in the racially-charged case.
