Death Row Doctor: Why I Take Part in Executions        Video        Op-Docs        The New York Times        8 March 2019


Can the vow that doctors take to “do no harm”

permit taking part in capital punishment?


This week,

the New York Times Op-Docs brings you “Death Row Doctor,”

about Dr. Carlo Musso and his assistance with executions in Georgia.


Directed by Lauren Knapp,

the film challenges us to answer the question

of whether having a doctor in the execution chamber

is a perversion of medicine

… or a common-sense act of mercy.

John Thompson - Prosecutorial Misconduct        Video


John Thompson spent 18 years in prison,

14 of which were on death row despite being innocent.


He was released after it was discovered

that the prosecutors in his case

had deliberately hidden evidence

that would have proven

that John was innocent of a robbery

which they used to seek the death penalty

in a murder trial.


After it was discovered,

he was given a retrial

and the jury took just 30 mins

to find him not guilty.


Here he talks about prosecutorial misconduct.
