When they say "Life" they really mean it

Posted By on Tue, Jul 8, 2008 at 12:15 PM

I was looking for some inmates in the Arkansas Department of Correction  ( not Corrections, for some reason) and did some random searches based on age.   I'm not sure if this guy is actually alive - but according to their data base Walter Williams was born in 1903, committed murder in 1941, and has been in prison ever since on a life sentence. I bet he won't do that again.

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.
