Watch this man’s reaction to seeing the world again after 44 years in jail
Otis Johnson, 69, was released after being arrested for 44 years in the United States. Admittedly, much has changed from 1970 to 2014, when the US citizen was released. In a video that went viral on the Internet, Johnson visits Times Square with Al Jazeera who recorded his amazement with the new technologies of the modern world.
The man was both impressed and confused by a number of trivial things: from people wearing headphones (which he compares to CIA agents) to new colorful beverages. The reason why Otis served a 44-year sentence was for the attempted murder of a police officer, when he was only 25.
