  1. Just watched David’s documentary, which I found heartbreaking. I would probably be the worst juror, because I went from A to Z, never being able to decide on Chester’s guilt or innocence, until I saw Harland Warren’s notes. I believe Chester is innocent. It’s so terribly sad that this man’s life was taken from him. I wonder how many innocent men went to the electric chair based upon the manner in which defendants were abused in those days, and frankly I believe a manner which often continues to this day…
