George Stinney: Falsely charged with murder, executed at 14

Everyone needs to see this video, especially those who support capital punishment. South Caroline wrongly convicted and executed this 14 year old boy while his family was forced to flee because they were threatened with lynching. This was the straw that broke the camels back for me when it comes to capital punishment. We already have a backwards, racist, corrupt criminal justice system. I’m not trusting them to kill a potential innocent person. In theory, it makes sense, but this isn’t in theory. This is real life. If you still aren’t convinced, here’s a link showing a reenactment of what happened to George in his final moments. I usually don’t appeal to pathos but I’m making an exception here. I have to warn you, this video is extremely disturbing: Watch at your own risk.
