Rev. George Edwards, at age 90, provided this text to us not long before he died in June 2010. George was a good friend of KCADP and participated in rallies, demonstrations, and meetings of the General Assembly to urge abolition of the death penalty. He was arrested for refusing to leave Gov. Paul Patton’s office on June 30 1997, the day leading up to the midnight execution of Harold McQueen, the last person electrocuted in Kentucky in the chair at Eddyville.
KCADP is seeking additional testimonials. If you are willing to take the witness stand against the death penalty, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and our videographer will be in touch.
