It's just really tragic that after all the horrors of the last 1,000 years, we can't leave behind something as primitive as government sponsored execution.
Frank Thompson, former superintendent of the Oregon State Penitentiary, has spoken with legislatures in Maryland and Nebraska; with governors in Colorado and Oregon; and was recently published in the New York Times. On Monday, Oct 17th at Salem’s Center 50+, citizens can have a conversation with him.
Salem/Keizer area residents can hear his powerful message at the event sponsored by Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty.
The evening’s program will also feature a brand new 13 minute film "Death Penalty Fail: A Lethal Injection” that dramatizes the events surrounding the “botched” executions that have occurred in 48 documented accounts, in 13 different states.
A simple soup supper will be served, starting at 6PM on Monday October 17th.
Admission is only $15 and seating is limited.
