Join TADP for Generations Against the Death Penalty Show

Singer-songwriter John Hiatt and his daughter Lilly are among a handful of musical parent and offspring pairings who will perform at the fourth annual Generations Against the Death Penalty benefit concert, Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 3rd and Lindsley.

Concert proceeds benefit Tennesseans for Alternatives to the Death Penalty (TADP), as we seek to honor life by abolishing the death penalty through education and advocating for a public policy change.

The conversation has changed with far more people of all generations and political backgrounds speaking up and saying the death penalty makes no sense. TADP is deeply grateful to these musicians who are providing a night of entertainment and supporting our goal of repealing the death penalty in Tennessee.

In addition to John and Lilly Hiatt, parent and son performers in the lineup include, Gail Davies and Chris Scruggs; Riders in the Sky’s Ranger Doug and James Green; and Marcus and Levi Hummon.

Tickets for the fourth annual Generations Against the Death Penalty concert are $30 for general admission and $75 for VIP seats. The concert is at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. Purchase tickets here.

The Generations Show was also chosen by the Nashville Scene for its weekly Critic’s Pick.

Former President Jimmy Carter Calls for Fresh Moratorium on the Death Penalty

Arguing that the death penalty continues to be as arbitrary today as it was when nine U.S. Supreme Court Justices suspended it in 1972, former President Jimmy Carter called for a nationwide moratorium on the death penalty as he prepares to speak today at a national symposium on the death penalty held by the American Bar Association and hosted by his Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia .

“The only consistency today is that the people who are executed are almost always poor, from a racial minority or mentally deficient,” Carter told the Guardian. “In America today, if you have a good attorney you can avoid the death penalty; if you are white you can avoid it; if your victim was a racial minority you can avoid it. But if you are very poor or mentally deficient, or the victim is white, that’s the way you get sentenced to death.”

He also reflected on his signing off on the new set of death penalty guidelines as Governor of Georgia in 1973, guidelines created to meet the court’s objections to the death penalty system’s inconsistencies set out in the Furman case. “If I had to do that over again I would certainly be much more forceful in taking actions that would have prohibited the death penalty. In complete honesty, when I was governor [of Georgia] I was not nearly as concerned about the unfairness of the application of the death penalty as I am now. I know much more now. I was looking at it from a much more parochial point of view – I didn’t see the injustice of it as I do now.”

Another Death Row Exoneration

Reginald Griffin, a former death row inmate from Missouri, became the nation’s 143rd death row exoneree on October 25 after the state dismissed all the death-related charges against him for the murder of a fellow inmate.

The state relied on jailhouse informants, who received benefits for the their testimony, while also withholding critical evidence that a correctional officer recovered the murder weapon in the possession of another inmate, Jeffrey Smith, immediately following the stabbing. Both of Griffin’s co-defendants repeatedly maintained the third person involved was not Griffin but Smith.

Griffin is the 4th person to be exonerated from Missouri’s death row and the first in 2013 in the U.S. Tennessee has three death row exonerees and a fourth man who was also wrongfully convicted, Ndume Olatushani. Olatushani took an Alford plea, allowing him to maintain his innocence and be released immediately, after  already serving 2o years on death row for a crime the evidence overwhelmingly demonstrated he didn’t commit.

Kansas Conservative Calls for Death Penalty Repeal

As Tennessee makes moves to resume executions, our state’s conservative leadership would do well to listen to conservative leaders from other states who believe that maintaining the death penalty system is contradictory to conservative values, and therefore, must be judged by those values.

Chase Blasi, president of the Colwich City Council and who serves on the board of the Kansas Young Republicans, wrote a noteworthy op-ed for the Wichita Eagle that lays out his concerns about the death penalty system, including ineffective and wasteful spending, the risk of executing the innocent, and the inconsistency with a pro-life ethic.

Before Tennessee resumes executions, despite the overwhelming evidence that the state’s system can’t be trusted, perhaps our conservative leaders could tune in to the growing chorus of conservative voices who say that this system needs to go.
