TEXAS Journey blogpost: Meet Curtis McCarty (with link to Video from Alaska)

October 5 – Texas Journey in 10 days!

What if the person on death row is innocent? I personally oppose the death penalty in all circumstances, whether innocent or guilty. But what if the person is indeed innocent? Do you still support capital punishment?

In a clip of Step by Step documentary of the 1998 Texas Journey, I remember hearing what a Texan said when interviewed in the street.

- Is it ok to sacrifice an innocent?
- That happens.

During the entire Texas Journey of Hope 2010, we have the privilege to have Curtis McCarty who spent 21 years on Oklahoma’s death row for a murder he did not commit. Privilege is not overrated, considering he could be a dead man now.

Curtis once said:

I am free physically, but mentally I am not. I am always there and I am always with the men I left behind and the men who died there, men whom I am certain are innocent.

In the following video, we meet Curtis McCarty (interviewed by Shannyn North Moore Up North) when he traveled to Alaska and supported our friends from Alaskans Against the Death Penalty.
