From the Paper:

"Whether or not someone is for or against capital punishment listening to the audio documentary "Witness to an Execution" is a harrowing experience. The documentary focuses on the stories of the women and men involved with the execution of death row inmates at the Walls unit in Huntsville Texas. What is particularly emotionally grim is the minute-by-minute description of carrying out an execution by lethal injection. The listener is not the only one distressed by the description."
