Book Review: End of Its Rope: How Killing the Death Penalty Can Revive Criminal Justice

Henry McCollum and Leon Brown each confessed to the horrific rape murder of an 11-year-old girl. They immediately recanted, but confessions being what they are, the two were tried, found guilty, and sentenced to die. They spent some 30 years in prison before being exonerated when DNA testing not only showed them innocent but also revealed the actual rapist/murderer.
