[edit] Information

Death Row tells the fascinating and controversial story of crime and the death penalty. Over the period of a year, Herzog interviewed inmates in America as they awaited their death - one has now been executed - and uncovered brutal stories of rape and murder. Death Row is not so much about capital punishment but a deep and intriguing insight into the limits of human experience to discover what it feels like to know how and when you will die.

[edit] Hank Skinner

Hank Skinner, who was sentenced to death 18 years ago for the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend and her two mentally impaired sons; he has had his execution scheduled three times. On one occasion, Skinner was only 20 minutes away from his death, having been read his last rites and eaten his final meal.

[edit] James Barnes

Sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his wife, Barnes had already spent eight years behind bars when he became a practising Muslim. During Ramadan, he called in homicide detectives, and confessed to a previous murder of a woman. He committed numerous crimes. He is repentant, and accepts full responsibility. In conversation, he does not appear a monster at all.

[edit] Joseph Garcia and George Rivas

Garcia's case is one of a tragic outcome from an everyday event, and a punishment out of proportion. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison for the murder of a young man. Drunk and jealous of the attention his ex-girlfriend was paying to Garcia, Garcia's victim started a fight, which ended with Garcia fatally stabbing him. Garcia subsequently participated in a prison break masterminded by George Rivas. Rivas had received 18 consecutive life sentences for robberies during which he locked away employees of stores without ever harming anyone.
