Today, in the third part of “Death Penalty On Trial
”, its multimedia examination of the Reggie Clemons
case, The Guardian
features an interview with Reggie himself
. In it, he maintains his innocence, discusses his version of what happened the night the Kerry sisters
died, and describes the alleged beating
he took at the hands of police.
“If you believe that somebody’s willing to beat you to death, while they’re beating you they can just about get you to admit anything.”
Watch for yourself:
That alleged abuse, and the confirmed abuse of Thomas Cummins, who at first was a suspect and then became a star witness for the prosecution, was just the beginning of a deeply flawed pursuit of justice that will be the subject of an unusual “Special Master” hearing on Sept. 17.
