The Carlos De Luna execution

An interview with the former Death House chaplain at The Walls -- the man who ministered to Carlos De Luna in the hours before he was executed by the State of Texas on December 7, 1989. Rev. Carroll Pickett says that the execution of Carlos De Luna was the most difficult one in which he was involved -- and he ministered to 95 men on the day they died. Failure magazine also covered the Carlos De Luna story in 2008 as part of a feature on At the Death House Door -- a feature that addressed whether or not Americans are educated enough about capital punishment to make a well-reasoned decision about the issue.
