The Death Penalty

I have been opposed to the Death Penalty my whole life. I have various reasons, one of which is powerfully demonstrated in this clip from the Today Show aired yesterday on NBC.

Valentino Dixon spent 27 years in Attica for a murder he didn’t commit. The actual killer confessed two days after Dixon was arrested, plus there was other evidence but authorities ignored it all. Now this week in a remarkable story, Dixon is free.

It could have been different. He could have been executed and a precious life extinquished.

Dixon’s story was made public by a 2012 article in Gold Digest as described in the video. A follow-up article was published this week.
