Bringing back Napolean Beazley

Napolean Beazley is one of the last juvenile offenders to be executed by the state of Texas before the U.S. Supreme Court outlawed the death penalty for juveniles.

Just this week, a new play chronicling the life and death of Napolean opened in Austin. The Austin Chronicle has an amazing story about the play. It's a bit of a long read (and certainly too long to post here) but I highly recommend it. I don't want to do the piece a disservice by excerpting from it. So go here.
