For me, today going to visit the Equal Justice Project was life changing. Getting to hear about their mission and then having Anthony come and tell his story of spending 30 years on death row really reinforced for me that no one deserves to die, and our criminal justice system does get cases wrong. To think that an innocent man had 30 years of his life stolen from him by our government.
Death is so final that I do not think it is ever fair and 30 years without being allowed to do things as simple as feel rain is cruel and unusual punishment, even if the person is guilty, not to mention if we get it wrong.
I will never forget Anthony's story or the work of the EJP.
