He had to of been so scared! This poor kid! As I said the first time I learned about this my soul have been broken into billions of pieces. The second time it completely broke me! I know how cruel this world is and can be. But don’t let that hate beat the love we can give to one another. Don’t let the hate win! Love everyone becauseis more powerful! We all have hearts… Use it! This was a baby! Look at his face and remember, but use this dark moment in our history to better futures for oursevels.
I read this it literally broke my heart. He was a person someones child a boy who only fear shoud be failing grades in school. He is a human being with a beating heart, a mind, soul and the power to love! His name is George Stinney Jr. And this is his final moments.
He was 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair. During his trial he always carried a Bible in his hands claiming his innocence. He was accused of killing two white girls, 11 year old Betty and Mary of 7 whose bodies were found near the house the boy and his parents lived. At that time, all members of the jury were whites. The trial lasted 2 hours only and the sentence was dictated 10 minutes later. The boy’s parents were not allowed in the court room, and subsequently expelled from that city after the trial.
Before the execution George spent 81 days in prison without being able to see his parents, he was held in solitary 80 miles from his city, he was held alone without anybody to talk to. He was electrocuted with 5380 VOLTS IN HIS HEAD.
70 years later, in 2014, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in South Carolina.
MAY HIS INNOCENT SOUL REST IN PEACE.
