Could we Execute an Innocent Man in 2015?
Richard Glossip is the Oklahoma death row inmate who was scheduled to be executed September 16th, but received a last minute stay due to the many troubling questions in his case. Read this letter from a variety of community leaders explaining the troubling details of his case, including Barry Switzer, head football coach at the University of Oklahoma.
“The writers of this letter have a wide range of professional backgrounds and political perspectives. But we share a deep concern about the integrity of the criminal justice system in Oklahoma and throughout the United States. We are particularly concerned about the danger of executing an innocent man. Could that really happen? In the United States, in 2015? Yes, it could.”
