If you read nothing else this week, please read Vickie Wellborn’s story in the Shreveport Times, “In wake of apology, ex prosecutor calls for abolishment of death penalty.” Video is included.
Here’s how she starts it:
_Saying the words “I apologize” seems so inadequate at times. And this is one of them for local attorney A.M. “Marty” Stroud III.
But he feels it must be said to Glenn Ford, the man who spent almost 30 years behind bars for a murder he didn’t commit._
Be sure to also read Stroud’s apology letter.
