Death penalty as punishment for a crime
This is it! Hudson Valley Horror Month (plus) comes to an end this Sunday! For the grand finale, we're headed down to Mahopac in Putnam County! You won't believe this one. In 1952, escaped convict, Donald Synder, took a young girl hostage as the police were closing in on him. In the midst of a standoff, he murdered that girl. He was later found guilty and sentenced to death. What happens next is bizarre. Synder hatches a plan to get his death sentence, by electric chair, commuted to life in prison. How you ask? By eating his way out of it!! That's right, Synder balloned up to well over 300lbs during his stay in prison. A far cry from the 150lbs he went in at!! Did this violent criminal's plan work? We'll tell you all about it! Patreon Page: https://patron.podbean.com/betweenthecrackspodcast Merch available at : https://btc-5.creator-spring.com/?

Earlier this year, Virginia made headlines when it became the latest state to abolish the death penalty. Sabrina Butler-Smith is the first woman to be exonerated from death row. She says she's living, breathing proof of why the capital punishment should be a thing of the past. Also: Deirdre Enright is probably best known for her work as the founding director of the Innocence Project and her passionate voice on the first season of the hit podcast, Serial. But before all that, she spent decades as a capital defense lawyer. She says she attended one of her clients' executions and it changed her life forever. Later in the show: Since 1976, 17 women have been executed in the United States. Mary Atwell says women facing the death penalty are often subjected to harsher sentencing due to gender bias within the criminal justice system. Plus: In 1951, seven Black men from Martinsville, Virginia were executed for allegedly raping a white woman. Two months ago, Virginia governor Ralph Northam issued pardons to each of the Martinsville 7. Peter Wallenstein says the Martinsville 7 case brings into sharp focus the racial disparities of capital punishment in Virginia.

The death penalty is visceral revenge and doesn't work. Why should we have the death penalty? Why do we punish people? U.S. Supreme Court justices on Wednesday leaned toward reinstating convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's death sentence for his role in the 2013 attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260 others. The court's conservative majority appeared sympathetic during arguments in the case toward the Justice Department's challenge to a 2020 lower court ruling that upheld Tsarnaev's conviction but overturned his death sentence. The three liberal justices asked tough questions of the government but it appeared unlikely that enough of their six conservative colleagues shared their concerns for Tsarnaev to prevail and secure a new trial to determine whether he should get a sentence of life in prison or death.

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin: My guest on this episode of Talking Taiwan is Hsinyi Lin, the Executive Director of the Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty. She spoke with me about the movement to abolish the death penalty in Taiwan. 2000 was an exciting year for Taiwan, it was the first time that there was a transition in power from the Kuomintang, and the first time that a Democratic Progressive Party presidential candidate, Chen Shui-bian was elected. That same year President Chen Shui-bian announced that the death penalty would be gradually be abolished. However, in September of 2000 there was an execution. This is part one of a two-part interview. In next week's episode, I will get in to a deeper discussion with Hsinyi about the public opinion on the death penalty in Taiwan, why the death penalty has not yet been abolished and the problems with the current death penalty procedure in Taiwan. Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode: How Hsinyi got involved in the movement to abolish the death penalty in Taiwan The announcement in 2000 by President Chen Shui-bian (the first Democratic Progressive Party president of Taiwan) that the death penalty would be abolished How Lu Cheng (盧正) a case that was believed to be innocent was executed in September of 2000 after the Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty asked Control Yuan was to review the case This first case proved innocent by the judicial system in Taiwan was the Hsichih Trio (蘇案) Exonerated cases in Taiwan with the year the case started and the year the case was exonerated: Hsichih Trio (蘇案): Su Chieh-ho (蘇建和), Liu Bing-lang (劉秉郎), Chuang Lin-hsun (莊林勳, 1991-2012) Hsu Tzu-chiang (徐自強, 1995-2016), Cheng Hsing-tse (鄭性澤, 2002-2017), Hsieh Chih-hung (謝志宏, 2000,-2020) Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty's (TAEDP) work on cases believed to be innocent How Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty was formed on December 9, 2003 The urgency of the case of Tzu Hsu-chiang (徐自強) who was exonerated in 2016 How Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty advocates and deals with all death row inmate cases The NGOs that Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty works with Related Links: To view all related links for this article, click link below: https://talkingtaiwan.com/hsinyi-lin-fights-to-abolish-the-death-penalty-in-taiwan-part-1-ep-152/
Episode 190: Old Mike Todor's body was found in his east end Regina home in the spring of 1955. He'd lain there for more than 14 months and had been beaten to death. Someone had killed him, but who? Elizabeth “Tootsie” LaFleche, Mike's 30-something-year-old wife, who'd been living with a friend for months, was telling a lot of stories about what had become of Mike. None of the tales made a lot of sense. After police found Mike's body, a number of arrests were made, charges were laid and several trials held, but thanks to Tootsie's lies, the real facts of the case may never be known. Sources: R. v.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Robert Dunham, the Executive Director of the Death Penalty Information Center to discuss the controversy surrounding the execution of Ernest Lee Johnson, an intellectually disabled man who was convicted of murder in Missouri, how this case further exposes the brutality of the death penalty and states' wielding of it, the growing shift in attitudes against the death penalty among the public and politicians alike, and the disproportionate use of the death penalty against working and poor people of color and the most vulnerable in our society.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by K.J. Noh, a geopolitical analyst, a member of Veterans for Peace, and senior correspondent with Flashpoints on KPFA to discuss tensions between the US and China over military activities concerning Taiwan, how the new orientation of the US toward Taiwan plays into the cold war drive against China, Taiwan's historical use as a pawn against the People's Republic of China, and how China's actions are leveraged to attack China and defend the neoliberal world order.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie discuss Dave Chappelle's unfunny Netflix comedy special “The Closer,” his bizarre, victim-blaming comments on the #MeToo movement, how his humor aimed at the LGBTQ community compares to racist jokes, and how the discourse of acrimony between the LGBTQ and Black communities is flawed.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Netfa Freeman, Coordinating Committee member with the Black Alliance for Peace, organizer with Pan-African Community Action, and host of Voices with Vision on WPFW 89.3 FM to discuss efforts to end the use of the qualified immunity defense to protect police officers from civil suits, how the militarization of police is the consequence of imperialism abroad, especially in Africa, the connections between policing in capital exposed in the corporate financing of police foundations, and the incessant American decline.
This week, in Marion, Virginia, the unthinkably terrible murder of a local woman, leads to a man, who has done this kind of thing before. This exact kind of thing. In almost the exact same place. This time, it's much worse, though, as he gets to fulfill all the crazy fantasies that he built up in his head, since the last time. This is only the start, as death row prison escapes, and a near fleeing of the country, make this one of the weirdest things we can remember. In the end, will he get a last meal, or a life in prison? Along the way, we find out that some people only get worse over time, that maybe you shouldn't tattoo "Born To Die" on your arm, and that it looks very odd to execute Santa Claus!!

Ernest Johnson was executed in Missouri, yesterday. Johnson had been on death row for over 25 years after being convicted of the 1994 murder of three people. However, pleas for clemency from his supporters, including Pope Francis, intensified recently, saying Johnson's intellectual disabilities made the execution unconstitutional and immoral. The FDA's advisory committee will be considering more booster shots, next week, as well as Pfizer vaccines for young children. Also, the drug company Merck said that its pill to treat COVID-19 reduced the risk of hospitalization among high risk people by 50 percent in a clinical trial. And in headlines: a report found the French Catholic Church abused more than 200,000 minors over the last 70 years, Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen testified before the Senate, and a Russian film crew arrived at the International Space Station to make history.

Many of you walked hand in hand with me as we watched Brandon Bernards failed last-second appeal last December and were all holding our breaths as he took his last.

Stacy is the Executive Director of Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (TADP), an organization whose mission is to honor life by abolishing the death penalty. She also served as spiritual advisor to Steve Henley, an inmate on Tennessee's death row who was executed on February 4, 2009. Today's topic is a tough one but I know you are up for it.

In the September 2021 episode of Discussions With DPIC, University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill political scientist Frank Baumgartner (pictured), one of the nation's leading academic authorities on the death penalty, joins Death Penalty Information Center Executive Director Robert Dunham to discuss what research has shown about the impact of race, gender, and geography in capital cases and the current historically low level of public support for capital punishment. Asked what 50 years of data tell us about the possibility of death-penalty policy reform, Baumgartner says, “At this stage, what we really need to do is admit that [capital punishment] is a failed experiment.”
This week, in Carr, Colorado, the grisly discovery of a young woman's body leads to the uncovering of maybe the strangest clan of murderers that the US has ever seen. A multigenerational family of carnival workers, and short order cooks, who travel the country, robbing people, and eventually committing one of the most horrific string of murders that has ever been seen, before, or since. Young women snatched from all night donut shops, grocery stores, and other very brazen locations. All while the wives & kids, waited in the car. It's an insane tale, that should be known by all, and somehow, isn't! Along the way, we find out that not all of Colorado is beautiful mountains, that kidnapping a store employee, while that store is open for business might not be the brightest move, and that you can't commit Bundy amounts of murder, and not expect people to notice!!

This week, in Rutland, Vermont, a horribly murdered body is found, on fire, beneath the ski lift of a popular resort, and investigators have very little to work with. This isn't some tourist, either, this a full on small town twisted plot, that is as crazy as it is cruel. But the whole thing comes to a halt when something very basic comes into question... is the dead person actually who we thought it was? Or is that person actually the murderer?? This one is as wild as they get! Along the way, we find out that syrup runs downhill, that you should rely on more than a murder victim's uncle to identify them, and that if you see a friend, who you thought had been murdered... don't talk to them!!

On February 12th, 1994, Ernest Lee Johnson and his ex-girlfriends two sons participated in the botched robbery of Casey's General Store that took three victims' lives: Mable Scruggs, Mary Bratcher and Fred Jones. Mr Johnson has no recollection of the murders, was in despair and had been drinking and smoking crack in the hours after his ex-girlfriend broke up with him. A Black man with intellectual disabilities and no former, violent convictions, he was convicted by an ill-informed, all-white jury with the help of Boone County, Missouri, Prosecuting Attorney, Kevin Crane. Ernest Johnson now faces an execution date of October 5th, 2021. This week, we spoke with Elyse Max, State Director of Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty about the life of Ernest Johnson, the media and court situation he faced, his twice overturned death penalty, the links between the lynching of Black people in the US and the current death penalty, intersections of race and class in who are the victims of capital cases and who sit on death rows, the mishandling of Ernests intellectual disability in the case and other topics.

Should Utah do away with the death penalty? Two Republican law makers are saying we understand how some people feel, but in reality the death penalty is harder on the victim's families than life without parole. Every time an issue comes up, an appeal comes up, the case is in the news, they have to relive the pain. And then there is the expense of the appeals. KSL Newsradio's Amanda Dickson asks her guests on A Woman's View for their perspectives. Her guests this week include Robin Ebmeyer, Utah Valley University's Director of Emergency Management and Safety, Kristin Sokol, dating coach - kristinsokol.com, and Jeanetta Williams, President of the Salt Lake Branch and Tri-State Conference of the NAACP.

This week, in Gresham, Oregon, horrified bystanders watch as a dead & naked body is tossed off a 75 foot cliff, and into the river below. This starts a mystery that travels across several states, and brings us to some of the most troublesome, awful people that can be imagined. In the end, the question is, was this a premeditated act of extreme violence, or a case of a swinging night & wild threesome gone wrong?

Actor and award-winning filmmaker Amber Sealey has directed film festival favorites such as How Does it Start, No Light and No Land Anywhere, and How to Cheat. Her most recent film, No Man of God starring Elijah Wood, Luke Kirby, and Robert Patrick, follows the real life friendship that developed between FBI Special Agent Bill Hagmaier (played by Wood), and serial killer Ted Bundy (played by Kirby) during the last four years of Bundy's life, before he was executed. What you will learn: Why No Man of God provides a fresh perspective on Ted Bundy's story, making it a unique and stand-alone narrative film, which can be enjoyed no matter how many Bundy films one has seen, and even if viewers know nothing about Bundy going in. Amber also talks about what drew her to a project which was much different than her prior work. [0:00-8:13] Amber discusses the questions No Man of God raises about the duality of man, how one defines good and evil, and how Elijah Wood had a pivotal understanding of his character and the film from the beginning. [8:13-17:52] What it was like casting the part of Ted Bundy, how she was able to talk Luke Kirby into taking the role, the joy of working with Luke Kirby and why she enjoyed shooting a film set in the 80s. Amber also gives personal insight into why screenwriters, like C. Robert Cargill who wrote the screenplay for No Man of God, sometimes choose to use pseudonyms in lieu of their real name on certain projects. [17:52-26:07] Amber discusses her previous film, No Light and No Land Anywhere, why she chose to cast her father in the role of the protagonist's “deadbeat dad,” and how the film creates tension in a different yet similar way to No Man of God. [26:07-30:34] Amber shares about her creative and artistic childhood, what it was like going to drama school in England, and how she found her calling in film. Amber also gives advice to young (and old) aspiring filmmakers, while emphasizing that there is no single, definitive path to success in film. [30:34-39:51] The experience Amber had making a short film and the financial struggles one can face trying to get a short film off the ground. Finally, Amber discusses the barriers to entry in the film industry, and shares tips on how to obtain grants and funding to create your own film projects.

This week, in Clarkston, Georgia, fear quickly spreads when a woman is found, strangled, and floating, in her own bathtub. The fear only gets worse when it happens to another woman... Then another one. It's a mystery, but the one thing that is known for sure, is that a serial killer is on the loose. A suspect finally emerges, after a police sketch is made, but he's not admitting anything, except one particularly embarrassing detail, that he says proves his innocence! Along the way, we find out that this small town probably has some pretty good food, that bath water gets cold, faster than we thought, and that you can't possibly be a rapist/murderer, if you only have sex with your sister!

This week, in Malvern, Arkansas, a young woman leaves her home to go see her boyfriend, for a little while, but she never shows up. The only trace of her is her car, which is left on the side of the road, locked. This causes incredible panic, and a widespread search, that eventually finds a body. The crime is a true mystery, until investigators get a huge break, and find an absolute monster, with a history of unspeakable crimes, and somehow, it just continues to get stranger from there! Along the way, we find out that they don't make many bricks, anymore, that criminals tend to eventually learn not to leave witnesses, and that it's suspicious to walk into a store, with your overalls covered in blood!!
