Meet Anthony ‘Ray’ Hinton, a man who spent 30 years on Alabama’s death row. He was released in 2015 after 16 yrs of appeals by the Equal Justice Initiative. Watch him talk about what he lost and why it is crucial to repeal the death penalty.Ray was innocent. #DeathPenaltyFail explores a very human story of loss, and unpicks the devastating impact that the death penalty can have.
But Ray’s story is not entirely unique, we learn that there are many others who have suffered the consequences of this flawed system. A total of 156 people have been exonerated from death row in the U.S. The question is: How many innocent people have been executed?
Watch Ray’s story on the 5-minute video at this link.
Here at #DeathPenaltyFail, we think that even one mistake is inexcusable. #OneisTooMany.
