In 1976, Ronnie Long was accused of raping a white woman and sentenced to life in prison. Long would spend 44 years in prison despite evidence collected at the scene that would have proved his innocence never being shared. In August 2020 Long was freed, but the damage had been done. Long lost his freedom for 44 years. He lost both his parents while in prison. For 44 Christmases, Long stayed in jail longing to be free.
North Carolina recently awarded Long a check for $750,000. It works out to be $50,000 for every year that Long was incarcerated. It caps at 15 years. So 29 years that Long spent waiting to be free goes unchecked, and more importantly uncompensated.

Orange County
UNC Health is pausing administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a few recipients reported feeling faint after receiving the shot. Over the last two days, healthcare workers administered more than 2,200 doses of the vaccine at the Friday Center and Hillsborough clinics; around five people reported feeling faint after receiving the shot at the Friday Center, a spokesperson for the healthcare system said. UNC healthcare system officials are continuing to assess the situation and conferring with the state Department of Health and Human Services, the spokesperson said.
UNC Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz says he expects campus life to be "as close to normal as possible" this fall, with many students living on campus and attending in-person classes.
Durham County
More Durham and Wake County middle and high school students returned to schools for in-person classes this week.
Wake County
Wake County has also paused administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, "out of an abundance of caution," according to a Thursday press statement. More than 2,300 doses of the J & J vaccine were administered at the PNC Arena county vaccination site yesterday, but 18 recipients reported adverse reactions and had to be evaluated by EMS. Of those 18, 14 had minor reactions; four had to be transported to nearby hospitals for further evaluation. Wake County is also assessing the situation in partnership with NC DHHS. More than 4.5 million people have received the J & J vaccine in the United States.
Elsewhere
Here's a list of places in central North Carolina where you can get a COVID shot.
An Elon University survey of 1,400 North Carolina residents found that the majority (58 percent) think Confederate monuments should remain in public spaces. But the percentage of respondents who think they should be removed (42 percent) grew by seven percentage points when the same issue was polled in 2019, indicating generational gaps.
New research from Duke University indicates that desegregation of schools was not universally beneficial for Black students.
"The key point is school desegregation, in and of itself, is not unequivocally beneficial to black students on a number of standard indicators used to assess the effects," says William A. Darity, a professor in Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy. "We have to make sure that black students receive fair treatment and quality instruction and curriculum once they are inside the door."
Thousands of North Carolina's health care professionals have declined to get the COVID-19 vaccine. But the numbers are similar to those nationally.
The state paid Ronnie Long, who was wrongly imprisoned for 44 for years for a rape he didn't commit, $750,000, the maximum allowed under state law for victims of wrongful incarceration. Long's attorney calls the sum "wholly inadequate."
U.S. Senator Thom Tillis is recovering from surgery to treat prostate cancer.
Former NFL player Phillip Adams killed his doctor, his doctor's wife, their two grandchildren, and an air conditioning technician in a mass shooting Wednesday before turning the gun on himself at his parents' house in Rock Hill, S.C., near Charlotte. Adams suffered two concussions over a three-game stretch during his six-year NFL career. The sheriff's office hasn't released a motive but Adams' father, Alonzo Adams, told a Charlotte TV station, "I think football messed him up."
President Joe Biden announced some modest measures to combat the "epidemic and an international embarrassment" of gun violence in America through executive action. But some of his biggest ambitions for reigning in gun violence, including banning the importation of assault weapons, enacting a voluntary gun buyback program, and providing more resources to the Justice Department and FBI to track firearms and better enforce current gun laws will require action from Congress.
Relatedly, N.C. Democrats yesterday filed a "red flag" bill, where the courts can seize firearms from people deemed a hazard to others or themselves, as is law in 19 other states. It will likely have a difficult time passing.
Statewide COVID-19 by the numbers: Thursday, April 8
2,087 New lab-confirmed cases (926,897 total; seven-day average trending down)
1,004 Current hospitalizations reported (seven-day average going down; 12,224 total deaths, +12 over Thursday)
33,163 Completed tests (11.59 million total; most recent positive rate was 5.1 percent)
5,516,517 Total vaccinations administered (State data not updated daily)
Today's weather Warm with partly to mostly cloudy skies and chances of a thunderstorm. A high of 83 degrees.
Song of the day Grande Gato, Bonita Se帽orita, and Poco Perro: Callate (Spanish Hangover) From the Buena Vida music project. Thanks to Grande Gato for the submission. Have a great weekend, everyone!
