SORT BY Relevancy
Tune in Tuesday April 15, at 8 PM CDT to listen to an in-depth discussion about the death penalty with death row exonerees Sabrina Porter and Derrick Jamison.
Sabrina Butler Porter was a Mississippi teenager who was convicted of murder and child abuse in the death of her nine-month-old son, Walter. She was sentenced to death in 1990. She was later exonerated of all wrongdoing and was released in 1995 after spending more than five years in prison and 33 months on death row. She is the only woman in the United States exonerated from death row.
Derrick Jamison was an innocent man who spent nearly 20 years on Ohio’s death row for a murder and robbery he did not commit. An eyewitness to the killing identified two men and neither of them was Derrick Jamison. This information was withheld from the defense, and his co-defendant was promised a reduced sentence in exchange for implicating Derrick. Misconduct and false testimony landed Derrick on death Row in 1985. Derrick spent 20 years on death row before his case was corrected in 2005.
Sabrina and Derrick are 2 of 144 people that have been exonerated from death row in the United States. According to Witness to Innocence, for every nine prisoners executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, one innocent person was condemned to die and later exonerated. These statistics are completely unacceptable and make a strong argument for abolishing the death penalty.
According to the latest statistics, there are over 3,000 people on death row in the United States. Can you imagine what it is like sitting on death row? Waking up every day in a cell knowing that each minute that passes puts you closer to the time when your life will be terminated by a lethal injection or an electric shock because of a crime that you committed? Can you imagine living every day with a countdown ticking in your mind?
You might say to yourself, 'I'm glad I'm not on death row. I don't want to do anything that would cause me to end up there.' But did you know that, in a way, you are indeed already sitting on death row?
Yes, the day of your death has already been decided. The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27, "It is appointed unto men once to die." Whether you want to accept it or not, your life -- and the life of every person alive -- is slowly winding down to a point of termination. You are effectively under a death sentence.
The reason we are placed under this death sentence is the same reason why men and women are placed on death row in the United States -- SIN -- evil, the bad things that we do. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, "the wages of sin is death." God's Word states that death is the consequence of our lying, stealing, adultery, murder, rebelliousness, pride and a multitude of other transgressions.
For an inmate on death row, death may seem like the end. The only way a criminal can avoid his death sentence is if he is pardoned by the state's governor or by the President of the United States.
Death does not have to be the end for you. You can be pardoned of your sins as well. Romans 3:23 goes on to say, "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." You can receive a pardon for your sins and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Jeffrey Havard currently sits wrongfully convicted on death row in Mississippi for the sexual assault and murder of his girlfriend’s six-month-old daughter, Chloe Britt.
The truth is the infant slipped from Jeffrey's arms while lifting her from the tub, causing her head to hit the toilet. Chloe’s death was a tragic accident, not a murder. Jeffrey is innocent.
Jeffrey's conviction resulted from a rush to judgment by unqualified medical staff and ineffective counsel.
According to two national leading experts, Dr. Michael Baden and Dr. James Lauridson, the evidence supports Jeffrey's claims.
Tune in Tuesday August 6, at 8 PM CST, to hear an in-depth conversation about this case.
Scheduled Guests: wrongful conviction advocate Lori Howard, Attorney Jen Fitzgerald, and former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice Oliver Diaz.
Playwright and performer Swithin Fry shares the poignant story of his penpal correspondence with Tim, a convict on Ohio's Death Row. From his vantage point in the United Kingdom, Swithin became aware of the difficulties Tim has faced seeking a retrial, leading to Swithin visiting Tim in prison and launching "Tim's Hope Campaign".
In Swithin's words..."I'm not saying they are all innocent; I'm not saying that Tim is innocent - though I believe he is. I'm saying the death penalty is wrong, morally wrong, the same way that killing is wrong, morally wrong. Tim is seeking a retrial. Nothing more, nothing less."
On March 1, Swithin debuted a monologue he wrote about his experience visiting Tim, performed at a major regional theater in England. Swithin hopes to take this on tour in America.
Swithin and host Susan Larison Danz discuss how as a civilized, enlightened society, we must humanize our understanding of "justice" in consideration of the accused, the convicted and the victims. Compassion, conscience and truth can set our society free.
