Good thing The Chicago Tribune does such great investigative work on the Texas Death Penalty. They are the ones who first broke the Cameron Willingham story, suggesting he was an innocent person executed. It sounds like they are on to something big again.
Major news event involving Carroll Pickett (former Texas death house chaplain):
The dates below when the story may air are tentative and subject to changes.
ABC Nightline-Thursday, June 22, 10:30 p.m. central time
ABC Saturday Evening News-June 24, 5:30 p.m. central time
These stories lead in to a very big story from the Chicago Tribune breaking on Sunday, June 25, Monday June 26 and Tuesday June 27. This will be found on the Web at chicagotribune.com.
All the programs and newspaper deal with a young man who was executed wrongly. Pickett was with him all day from 6:00 a.m. to midnight. There is a partial account in his book, Within These Walls.
You can watch a video of Rev. Pickett’s talk to this year’s anti-death penalty alternative spring breakers.
Rev. Pickett’s talk starts around the 11th minute and goes for about 30 minutes.
