The documentary below tells the story of Greg Taylor, convicted in 1993 of murdering a prostitute. Years later the Innocence Project would look into his case, uncover a raft of discrepancies and misconducts and, after almost 17-years of incarceration, Taylor was released from prison.
It is stories like this that have turned me against the death penalty. I don’t have a philosophical problem with the death penalty per se; there are people whose crimes warrant it. I have a problem, rather, with our ability to reliably settle the questions of guilt and innocence.
