Death Row: Into the Belly of the Beast

Program #PREH001. Recorded in Gainesville, FL on September 17, 1998.

Gandhi said, "An eye-for-an-eye leaves everyone blind." None seem so blind toward capital punishment as Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, China and the U.S., the only five countries to withhold their votes from a moratorium on the death penalty. An Amnesty International investigation concluded that the death penalty in the United States is applied arbitrarily and is subject to bias based on the defendant's race and economic status.


Sister Helen Prejean

Sister Helen Prejean is a lively nun who talks about both sides of the tragedy of murder, serving as spiritual counselor to death row inmates and the families of victims. She wrote the best-selling book Dead Man Walking, based on these experiences, made into the movie of the same name. She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
