Tommy Zeigler asked what kind of fool would take truth serum and polygraph tests he was truly guilty? In 1987 Tommy Zeigler was in his cage on death row, reading a People magazine. The story was about DNA technology! It said that the same Orange County, Florida prosecutors office who put Tommy on death row had just used this new DNA testing technology to convict one of the first people in the entire country with the DNA results. That is when Tommy had Hope. But that same prosecutor's office has fought against every dna testing request Tommy's defense team has ever filed since that time. WHY? What are they afraid of? They all took on oath to be in a quest for the truth. After hearing Tommy Zeigler’s comments in the video clip posted above, it is important to put his comments about the Orlando Sentinel into context. The Former Vice President of the Orlando Sentinel Dave Burgin admitted that his newspaper’s flawed journalism in 1975 helped wrongfully convict Tommy Zeigler. In a clemency letter Mr. Burgin wrote to then Governor Jeb Bush. Mr. Zeigler is now elated and most grateful that recently in 2015 times have changed at the Orlando Sentinel. Tommy is extremely pleased at the recent efforts of Orlando Sentinel journalist Scott Maxwell’s attempt to write the fair and balanced truth about his wrongful conviction.
