George Swinney Jr. The youngest person to be sentence to death

George Stinney Jr. of African descent was the youngest person to be sentenced to death in the 20th century in the United States.

 He was only 14 years old when he was executed in an electric chair. During his trial, even on the day of his execution, he always carried a bible in his hands claiming to be innocent. He was accused of killing two white girls, 11 years old Betty and Mary of 7. The bodies were found near the house where the teenager resided with his parents.

 At that time, all members of the jury were white. The trial only lasted fr 2hours and the sentence was dictated 10mins later. The boy's parents were threatened and prevented from being present in the court room and subsequently expelled from that city.
 Before the execution, George spent 81 days in prison without being able to see his parents. He was held in solitary, 80 miles from his city. He was heard alone without the presence of his parents or a lawyer. He was electrocuted with 5,380 volts in his head, imagine all that voltage in a teenager's head.

 70 years later, his innocence was finally proven by a judge in south Carolina. The boy was innocent, someone set it up to blame him for being black.

May his innocent soul rest in peace
