In the first story of the series, “They executed people for the state of South Carolina. For some, it nearly destroyed them,” The State revealed that the closer execution workers in South Carolina were to the act of killing, the more the men said their jobs caused long-term harm. The story also exposed that South Carolina’s execution rules were often kept secret. The consequences of execution work were exposed in the article for the first time in this detail. Executioners did not receive training for their roles, had been pressured to keep doing the job even after they requested to stop and have continued to suffer from physical ailments as well as post traumatic stress syndrome and depression.
