Topic for your initial post: Several types of victim compensation

Topic for your initial post: Several types of victim compensation were discussed in this module’s resources. There were also several examples of cases resulting in compensation in the videos and readings. Your task is to pick one case where victim compensation could be or has been given (think one of the thousands of exonerations, eugenics, etc.). Share a link to the case then discuss the following:

1. Brief overview of the case
2. Was compensation given?
3. Do you think it was adequate? Or if compensation wasn’t given, why?
4. What amount of compensation do you think would balance out the harm that was caused by the wrong that your victim faced?
