The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: Texas Death Row

Updated:
Hunstville, Texas - A little more than 3,000 people are sitting on death row, waiting to get their final meal and take their last breath. Thirty-two states have the death penalty. 

Charlie LeDuff tells the story of three inmates who were condemned to die. Did a jury of their peers get it right?

Play the video in the player to see another edition in the series The Americans with Charlie LeDuff.

Play one or all four of the Daily Minute bonus videos to see what "media day" looks like as Charlie talks to a British reporter who has a keen interest in America's death sentencing policies. You'll also hear more from a victim's family on why they think the man who murdered their loved ones deserves to die. And take a trip with Charlie and his crew as they head down to Austin, Texas to pay a visit with country singer, humorist and satirist Richard Samet 'Kinky" Friedman. He plays a song or two and explains why it's so important as an artist to remember that your work will connect with people and how he learned that his work reached all the way into the prison cell of Nelson Mandela.

Scroll through the photo gallery in this story to get a closer look at an execution chamber.

    The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on. There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?

    NAFTA is 20 years old. Back then it promised us it would create jobs for all of us and stop the wave of illegal immigration from Mexico. So what happened to those jobs and why are the immigrants still coming?
