U.S. plan to resume federal executions 'hurt my heart,' says exonerated death-row inmate
It's been 16 years since the last federal prisoner was executed in the United States. But that lapse is set to end after U.S. Attorney General William Barr announced the federal government government would resume its use of capital punishment. Derrick Jamison — a former death-row inmate who was fully exonerated in 2005 — speaks to As It Happens guest host Megan Williams from Tampa, Fla. He now works as a peer specialist for Witness to Innocence, a national organization that advocates against the death penalty.
