George Junius Stinney Jr. was, at age 14, the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century (1944) The boy was very small for his age (5'1) so small, they had to stack books on the electric chair. http://tinyurl.com/mpt2jgj

This clip is from the 1991 movie "Carolina Skeletons" which is based on that event. (I have no ownership or copyrights concerning this film)

Because there is literally NO EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM (accused of murdering two white girls) ...the question of Stinney's guilt and the judicial process leading to his execution remain controversial (ie. there's a strong possibility they executed an INNOCENT person)

The police rounded up several black boys from the area besides George, according to his brother. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVCFpb...

"83 Days" - a new movie (2014) about the execution of George Stinney http://manninglive.com/news/article_7...


"The lack of any physical evidence or archived police and court records is the reason South Carolina attorney Steve McKenzie, who detailed Stinney's story to TheGrio, said he wants to re-open the case of the execution George Junius Stinney, Jr. McKenzie said he believes Stinney was innocent of the murder and with "no investigative notes, no trial transcripts, no written confession, and nothing to indicate guilt," it is clear Stinney's trial and subsequent execution were suspicious at best and a miscarriage of justice at worst.
