The Recovering Attorney Un-Blog(tm) is experiencing technical difficulties!!!!

The www. and WordPress are just not cooperating today!  The black and white photo of the young boy below is of George Junis Stinney, Jr.  1920-1944.

He was 14 years old.  6 months. and 5 days old whereby making young George the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century.

In a Columbia, South Carolina prison sixty-six years ago, guards walked a 14 year old boy, Bible tucked under his arm to the electric chair.  At a mere 5’1 and 95 pounds, the straps (made for an adult, presumably) did not fit his adolescent legs.

The switch was pulled and the adult-sized “death mask” fell from his face allowing those in attendance at the state ordered execution

please tune in on Thursday, Dear Readers.  Again, as you can see, I am having www./Wordpress difficulties!!
