Man Walks to End Capital Punishment

June 25th, 2013 by flanews

One protester against death row hopes to make an impact in Florida by walking across the state to end capital punishment.

Kurt Wadsworth is protesting against the death penalty by trekking up and down the coast of Florida to inform its residents about the issue. His journey started in Pensacola one month ago and plans to head south to Key West and end back up at the Death Chambers. Kurt is hopeful to get the states attention with this protest and to eventually abolish capital punishment in the state of Florida.

“This march is for the victims, it’s for everybody involved 140 nations of Earth have ended the death penalty, no longer use it 16 states abandoned the death penalty because most states come to the conclusion that taking the life perpetuates violence, its not justice, it is revenge,” said Wadsworth.

He is unsure how long it’ll take to complete his walk.
