Death To Executions

Released Wednesday, 18th December 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
It probably won’t surprise you that the death penalty in America is a racist practice, but it's also sloppily applied, expensive, and not actually working to make anyone safer. Many states are already ramping down the use of capital punishment because it doesn’t work. It’s time to stop doubling down on this outdated and racist practice for good. The real question we should be asking is not whether people deserve to die for the crimes they've committed, it's do we deserve to kill. On this episode we talk to Bryan Stevenson, founder of Equal Justice Initiative (EJI.org), about his work with incarcerated people and the new film Just Mercy, which chronicles his fight to save Walter Dee McMillian from execution.
