Dead Man Walking


A Texas prison prepare for another execution of a young black man. Four leather belts will strap him to a white bed as he waits for the lethal injection.

Glenn McGinniss feels like a dead man walking as he describes how at seventeen he stole money for his mother who was in prison with a crack habit. When a young women who he was robbing started screaming, McGinniss panicked and shot her. As a result, an all white jury condemned him to death by execution.

The film details the phenomena of young black men in US prisons. Blacks make up 41% of the prison population but only 12% of the American population.

White parents of the victims recommend watching the executions. One father says, “they have to be removed from society like a rabid dog.” Lynching of blacks at the courthouse is no longer permitted, but judicial prejudice still runs deep.
