Justice 360 has partnered with The Nickelodeon Theatre to present a screening of a documentary which examines the effect of an execution upon the execution team.
“There Will Be No Stay” will be shown at The Nick Wednesday at 6 p.m., followed by a question and answer session with the film’s director, Patty Dillon, of Idaho.
The film is described as “A journey of compassion and consequence, through a process shrouded in secrecy. Executioners’ lives intersect on a path to discovering freedom from their own personal prisons.”
It offers a powerful perspective – that of the executioners who are enlisted by the state to kill. Prior to now, this perspective has been missing from the public debate on Capital Punishment.
The mission of Justice 360 is to promote fairness, reliability and transparency in the criminal justice system for people facing the death penalty in South Carolina.
Information on tickets for the screening is available here.
