Prisoner to Hang in Chicago
“The Holdout,” by Clare Briggs.
|Feb. 18, 1920: In Chicago, the sheriff prepares to hang another prisoner. "If capital punishment means anything at all it is a deterrent to further crime and an example to others. The very class this lesson is intended to reach is there in the jail and I intend they shall have the lesson," Sheriff Peters says. |
Reminds me of Earl Williams.
