The Youngest American Ever Executed – October 1, 2011 – Blog

Reneep34
My heart still hearts after reading about this from years ago. I read that when he was in jail he was crying for his mother! My God, how could people be so heartless!!
Quarter Acre Adventures
This is awful. Even now there are plenty of death row inmates who are being found completely innocent. It is strange how ‘pro-lifers’ are usually also ‘pro-death penalty’…
 
Comfortably Numb
It makes me literally nauseous whenever I heard about what was done to this young boy.
Tenn And Tenn, P.A.
Yes, we have come a long way since 1944. Yet, I think we continue to struggle with many of the same issues, such as hastily arriving at conclusions and failing to address new evidence when it’s presented.
JOINT CHIEF
it wasn’t dictionaries they sat him on that day mam. It was George Stinney’s own Bible. I grew up in Alcolu and played on the tracks where the girls were killed.
mattbod
It’s made the press here in the UK too. Sad thing is one is just not surprised anymore when one hears of US death penalty miscarriages of justice. Yes this was nearly seventy years ago but the fitting up of a young boy (probably only semi literate) and putting him to death in a way that has always been the shame of America (medieval) is evil on a grand scale. The papers here say that the State of South Carolina will not be carrying out a posthumous retrial and transcripts and minutes of the trial have strangely disappeared (what a surprise): shameful…
Varri Boyd
heart breaking .
Michel Mpoyi
what the F****?? Was the Jury able to sleep after this? really???
Grace Alexandre
What a mean, conniving way of getting someone to confess to something that he did not do!!
SassyPants
This is so upsetting to me I can’t even watch it past the introduction. That poor baby never had a chance back in the 40s, once those clowns for cops decided he was “guilty” it was over for him. WAY, WAY SAD!
Nick Arbanas
there should be no death penalty, its hypicritical killing someone for a murder. people change and make mistakes.
1958darkstar
This is heart breaking
joan Jones
There would be nothing disgusting about it if he did it but he didn’t do it……..I am betting he didnt even confess for the cone. Back then they might make it up just to get it over with and pin it on him. Somebody actually did confess to this crime on their deathbed later.
John Hilder
You cant tell me otherwise, that these death sentencing procedures are 100% accurate. This scene is an example of what goes on in the american justice system.
Bryan Pena
Wat kind of jury would say execute a 14year old boy
JOHN ADAMS
I live in Mexico, and when the subject of restoring Mexico’s death penalty came up during the presidency of Vicente Fox, the president said: “The death penalty represents a period in Mexico’s history that we do not wish to revisit.”
Shane
Police promised that dude ice cream if he confessed? That’s great investigatory skill right there…
Debra Sparks
We should remember this, and feel ashamed of what we can do to a person. Let’s hope this stuff stops.Let’s treat others like we would want to be treated.
Bobby Says Goodbye
@mccainisthroughX you are 100% right! you know how it is though, you see something and your anger overwelms you in that moment but youre right its not just america buddy. you gave a very level headed responce so i will show you the same respect back! thank you for your post i appreciate your time of the day
leedscab123
I am a staunch supporter of the death penalty in certain cases i.e Rape, Child Abuse and the murder of law enforcement officers, BUT THIS IS A DISGRACEFUL ACT FITTING SOMEONE UP FOR  A MURDER THEN EXECUTING THEM. EVIL.
MSE. Dzirasa
Hmmmm very SAVAGE INDEED…May he rest in peace!!! Thank you for this video…NOW YOU KNOW WHY WE WILL NEVER STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD …IT’S BECAUSE THIS NATION HAS MADE IT SO BY ITS ACTIONS PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE…!!! But I will always say that the best thing that happened to me is to be born black…I am a subsaharan-princess and I love it….!!!
DestinyHime
I am well aware there are children -sociopathic children- who kill. Whether Stinney did it is not the issue. I believe what people are outraged over is the fact that a 14 year old boy was executed via the electric chair, and the lack of evidence they had against Stinney, when he was executed.
BLAQGATO DRONER
Not dictionary… tell it right… they used the bible that he had when he was escorted in to the death room with to use as a booster seat.. this injustice still exists..
Alicia Ambrus
rest in peace George.
ldchappell1
. Lord help our Human Race.. <–It’s nice to read a YouTube comment from somebody who understands empathy. Executing a 14 year old boy is JUST WRONG regardless of what he did . That’s just a kid, and bad kids don’t always grow up to be bad adults. I’m a good example. I was a terror at age 14 but by the time I was 16 I turned my life around. That was 40 years ago and as an adult I have a totally clean record.
byron2
America has been a sick country for a long time.
Dan Rhinehart
A child was executed on trumped up charges through a kangaroo court. This was ten says after the allied invasion of normandy began and countless American servicemen were giving their lives to end this sort of thing
DestinyHime
I am severely confused by this comment. Well, look at it this way Thomas. From what I know about Stinney, he was very poor. Perhaps he had never had an ice cream before. Chances are he also did not know much about the law, and did not realize the consequences of confessing. He had also been in a room with people for hours, without a lawyer or parents; he probably just wanted to go home.
Sarah Edwards
My brother at 16 is already 6 foot 1 and 160 pounds. He’s always being told that he looks a lot older. I’m 6 years older than him (well, 5 1/2) but he looks older than me. I’m 5 foot 2, 115 pounds and look about 16.
KatelynAvery
They made a movie about it….the death scene made me cry so bad. It was so sickening.
Arisa Cornell
thats really depressing 🙁
RJ H
Well if the sheriff said you’re guilty, that’s good enough for me.
Jason Weller
The State of South Carolina executed (June 16, 1944) a child (14 years old) & lady justice has been silent to this day. The haters decided that this child had to be guilty (there was no evidence of this child’s guilt) because the two victims stop while on their walk & asked George Stinney Jr & his Sister a question & they continued on their walk. Imagine what this child was feeling, thinking & knowing he was not guilty while taking that walk to the electric chair.
Ricky3p1416
Luckily we have evolved & our criminal justice has reached the pinnacle of perfection.
Jane Doe
As Clarence Darrow said, The world has been one long slaughter house. Justice ? I don’t know what means.  Maybe vengence.  Sad, huh ?
From Glory to Glory with Xander
At the end, he said there needs to be a dialogue. I say, what dialogue? You don’t dialogue with or about a racist system and the people who run it. It’s been 60+ years since this happened and it’s still happening. How much dialogue do you need before you take some action?
maya fortune
That brought tears to my eyes, I have no respect for a country an people that allow this to happen everyday wit out any remorse. Ii have never been so disgusted in my entire life the way I am now
DestinyHime
What is your reaction to this case? Disgust, mostly. That and wishing those responsible would be brought to justice.
Verisimilitude Dude
I KNOW that. I was just using painsey’s logic against him as an example.
Nunu
Thanks for agreeing with me. @d3221ck Like I said I bet he agree’d to it because he was scared or confused. I bet there were also more to it during the interrogation than what they let on. It’s was common to accuse black people for A LOT back then but to aim at a poor child and kill him like this? Please don’t act like it wasn’t all sunshines back in the day. Learn history or gtfo.
N9olan
Your child would actually be Japanese following the rule of where you are born and your child will have Welsh ancestry.
ldchappell1
I don’t know enough about this case to make a judgement on guilt or innocence but even if he did do it, a 14 year old should NEVER be executed. That’s still very much a child. Bad children don’t always grow up to become bad adults. I was a delinquent terror as a child. I shoplifted and burglarized homes. I started fires and got into all kinds of mischief. But all that nonsense stopped when I was 16 and I turned my life around. This wasn’t justice. It was murder.
Taint ABird
You’d expect executions in Saudi Arabia or China or some socially backward and oppressive country – but this happened in the US, the land of the free.  And he was just a kid! According to Wikipedia this young kid had his conviction overturned on 17 December, 2014.  Bet late than never I suppose.
yamahonkawazuki
I am like you pro cap. punishment. I agree, I see nothing worth the DP in this case.
M S
they made him seat on his own bible, not dictionarys…….
Shinryu
Words cannot describe how cruel and heartless all those involved in the boy’s interrogation (I use interrogation as based on the facts of the case there is very little chance that it was a mere questioning) and his trial and setencing. I hope that he can be exonerated posthumerously. I also hope that those who were involved receive a black mark on their ‘history’ posthumerously if it is found that they acted incorrectly under law.
JohnPaul Dixon
Ok,it’s an established fact that some killers will join in the search for the victim either for some perverse thrill or to possibly to detract attention from them.So for Marc Lamont Hill to say that this young boy ‘actually joined in with the search’ isn’t on it’s own sufficient to prove innocence. That said,there are clear points to strongly suggest this poor boy was innocent,at least ‘reasonable doubt’.I hope he’s posthumously pardoned/exonerated,and SOON.
Mack488
The youngest was George Stinney of age 14
JOHN ADAMS
The movie exposes the American [mis]justice system as it existed in 1944 in the South, but don’t fool yourselves into believing that things have basically changed, as children even younger than he are sometimes sentenced to prison terms so long that they cannot possibly emerge from prison until they are well over one-hundred years old. In other words, death by imprisonment, and this isn’t restricted to the South.
TypicalRandom
There was a murder covered up here in Ireland for almost 40 years, due to it’s gruesome nature. (Google) The murder of John Horgan in the village of Hollyville. People are only starting to hear about it now…
Vulbor
Yes everyone is to some degree. It’s nothing to be ashamed of as long as you try to control it.
Bill Brisotti
Even after they find him innocent, no one will ever have to pay for this crime against humanity. Prosecutors, lawyers, judges, court and jail personnel, executioner, and no one even raises a question. This was no accident or mistake. This was done by professionally trained experts. Maybe this is the worst example, but this sort of railroading has happened many times and continues to happen and no one is ever brought to justice. Until prosecutors and judges go to jail there will be no justice.
Britteney
That’s hella sad smh
latin1988AC
So true. If you can see it, why can’t everyone else. It’s crazy hating someone because they dont look like you. It’s insane. God bless you.
homesickdelko
………..This happened before the Civil Rights Movement. I am from Atlanta, and the Troy Davis thing made me sick! I wanted to protest so bad but my dad wouldn’t let me and I was mad. I can go on and on about how the death penalty should be ILLEGAL!
ladyhawk nevar
This Canadian thanks you. Every country in the world has its own form of racism.
New Wave
Wrong, had he been living today, the case against him would have been thrown out of court because there was no evidence. The police would have had to obtain a WRITTEN confession from him with either his parents and or lawyer present.
Jerod portis
Danm he was a Lil dude may his soul rip
kyak1
Do no assume for a moment that one’s skin color means that you have hate in your heart for anyone else. What happened to this young man was horrible beyond belief. I pray that such an act never happens again anywhere, although such things happen everyday in a number of countries as you read this today. Anyone who says categorically that people of another race hate is by definition a racist. This should never happen and most certainly should never have happened in the United States.
C
wow this is sick
Tae Tae
This is just as horrible as the Emmitil story. I remember reading about this story a long time ago & they made a documentary/ movie about this. It broke my heart. They were so cruel & evil to black people back then. I just wish we could just love one another more…
Handbag Diva
This was 1944, people have been getting progressively bigger throughout the decades!!
missjohn person
i cant even comprehend the evil in this world
jparish62
technically an American is anyone born in this country regardless of their ancestors origins. even who we know today as native American Indians are thought to originate from northern Asia (perhaps modern day Siberia and possibly Mongolia). Everyone’s ancestors at some point immigrated to this land, just some before others
Arisa Cornell
what was he accused of?
ldchappell1
They made a movie about it….the death scene made me cry so bad. It was so sickening.<—– I love movies but I don’t enjoy watching films that manipulate your emotions and make you feel like crying. A few years ago I watched that Ed Norton film “American History X” and it wrecked me for two days. I had never seen a film that exhausted me so much.
Ancientafrica
These are the issues the above man should be talking about; such issues are still around. But he  agreed that  Israeli–Palestinian conflict is Aprartheid?

@mccainisthroughX you are a class act! its breaks my heart to think people judge people based on their color! its the 21st century people, stop ot already. i pray that it stop one day….
Sarah Doe
Don’t hate because they do! Love and forgive even when they won’t. Never allow someone to take advantage of you, but at the same time never allow anyone you don’t know to allow you to waste your life hating them. I am not white; I am not black; I am not any color that ties me to a group and allows me to judge. I am merely a human with pigmentation. This pigmentation should not matter to you or I. That is what this little boy would have screamed out loud in his remaining moments if he could!
Joshua
It’s both sad and scary that people think this way. Nationality isn’t about what color or ethnicity you are it’s where you’re born. If an American woman gives birth in Canada… congratulations, it’s a Canadian.
ldchappell1
I’m not against the death penalty. I just think it should be applied to adults who are found guilty of heinous crimes, such as multiple murders or murders involving torture. 17 should be the absolute minimum age. Fourteen is just a kid. That’s an eight grader. I don’t think a 14 should receive a life sentence unless he commits murder behind bars. In California this kid would probably be sent to Youth Authority until age 18 and then be transferred to prison until he reached age 25.
tonishi ishikawa
This is unfair world, so live with it !
Digitalchick84
That’s disgusting. I couldn’t imagine how anyone could have that much hate to do something that terrible over something as simple as skin tone. someday i hope we are all one color.. if not physically, than mentally… we need to get past this in order to move forward as a society.
K C Jones
I really do not think people who have attitudes like that are necessarily stupid. In fact some very intelligent people are intolerant. Rather its a matter of being ignorant of the truth. People develop their beliefs according to their own live experiences. Generally, people do not have empathy for those who they cannot relate to. This is exactly there are so many wars. If you cannot see your enemy as having the same right to life as you do then its easy to kill.
MsCat2U Dias
America is not disgusting. People who judge people by the color of their skin, religious beliefs, ethnic heritage, or anything else that makes them “different” are disgusting. Racism and prejudice do not exist just in America. Not all Americans are racists.
centinexslays
“This is the most horrific miscarriage of justice I’ve ever heard of…” Never mind the holocaust which was going on at the same time lol. Perhaps you should read a book…. Maybe two…

You’re right..back then that is exactly how it would go. But I was refering to now. Though even today , wether ppl admit it or not…racism is a huge problem. The thing I struggle with is that all of us(whites from the south) aren’t racist…and ALOT of us…speaking for myself and many others I know..take heat and abuse from both whites and blacks(I often have seen more love though comming from my black friends and relatives)It’s no time and era issue..racism is an issue..period.

(continue) When this child was murdered by the state of South Carolina, when they took this child’s life, they stole from GOD & to steal from GOD is beyond evil. It was believed by some & law enforcement in this small town that the real killer of these two girls was a person who lived in the community for years, he was from old money & had no alibi on the day of the killings. The girls’ head injuries were horrific & the weapon was too heavy for the 14 year old to commit such a brutal crime.

Yeah this makes me sick.  I have trouble seeing anyone under 25getting executed.  I support execution completely but in a case of a kid.  for the love of God they should have at worst out him in a juvie hall.  A ‘confession’ with no record, 4 witnesses for prosecution and no defense.  Come on,  Add to that the whole process from arrest to death was 81 days and he was made to face this alone as his family were told to get out or be hanged.  No way in hell I would have sent that KID to death. Especially with such a crapy trial.

rbgrider
Right somebody did that to that child…so if there is justice to be had by clearing this childs name then what about the other side of the syllogism? There is no statute of limitations on murder. From the police to the jury to the executioners their names and reputations should carry the stigma of child killers.

Only in Society, ie, no one should commit murder. In the justice system, the death penalty should be law in all fifty states.

Um yeah, this was pretty sick and messed up, and the people involved with it should be ashamed… but it also happened in 1944, not in modern times. You can’t judge all of America based on this.

@rulerofallisurvey your god is a mental wall you built because you couldnt comprehend infancy, and it is natural behavior in all living things to setup boundry when confusion is gaged, but most of us look a bit deeper than most, and we get the credibility of not being called ignorant, because we looked a bit deeper for our concept of the infinite,

Why are you responding to my post and not painsey’s post? He/she is the one that had a double standard. I was just trying to point that out. Yes, we are all considered American if you’re born here. Painsey didn’t think so. I guess I should have pointed out what I really meant in that post. Whatever.

Well we, the US, may suck overall as a country, but I won’t sit here and let you say CANADA is better. That’s like saying the aroma wafted from a pile of shit is better than that of a decaying carcass. Nice attempt to get two points for Canada though, although as unsuccessful as the rest. XD

(continue 2) This kid only weighed 90lbs & stood 5ft 1in & could not have lift & thrown these girls down into the ditch they were found in. The girls were obviously thrown because of the distance between where they were thrown & where they landed. It was obvious that this kid did not commit this crime, it was suggested that the real killer had to be protected & so what a little black kid had to die to keep that dirty little secret, what a SICK & HATEFUL world we live in.

The simple fact that america goes around the world telling other countries how to run things…..

it alright to say blacks BROTHER OF COLOR, injustice is injustice, these two are black as are many.

I thank god that there are mediums like television, for those that still don’t read books about black culture and oppression to open our eyes. So put the dollar down and be more aware of who you are, really.

America and america is still fucked from a fellow american but not every american is evil not every person is evil who knows who is “evil” or not. We are all human, we all have flaws, we are all one. Even If the world was fucked its how you live your life and how you pursue it to become “evil” or “good”. We are all people with flaws of justice and thought. As said, we are individuals. People can be “evil” but its all on opinion.

Land of the free, injustice is carried out all over this world, but what make this so evil, is the lie of liberty and Justice that is preached in America. When I thought american history of crime against black ppl couldn’t get any worse i come across this video.

Actually, white Americans aren’t Americans at all, since they came over to North America from Europe. True Americans are the native Americans which are also known as “Indians”, since some of the early explorers thought they had landed in India for some reason.

poor ignorant little kid,that`s why a adult needs top be with children when they enter the judicial system,the age of the boy doesn’t bother me if he was guilty but if you have the death penalty you had better have damn good evidence against the accused

You’re missing the point. If White people born in America are Americans, then so are other people of other races. Otherwise it’s a double standard.

Wrong! You are only true American, if you are Native American. If you aren’t Native American, you are decendants of Welsh immigrants – as you wrote you are (Welsh). That’s simple logic!

This its sad, black, white, purple, green, or whatever he is a child, like seriously he couldnt have hurt anyone

You contradict yourself. true “americans”, Native americans also known as Indians are the people of the americas. NOT whites. You said if “white amercans have a child that person is an american” – well whites are european no matter where they go. Just like YOU said. If a welsh person had a child in Japan the child would still be welsh. exactly – welsh not japanese. Just like white people in the americas are europeans- welsh, english, french, spanish, whatever- not ” native americans”.

it was true and terrible because he was forced to confess but not the youngest.  The youngest was Hannah Ocuish she was 12
