Description

Chicago Life Magazine looks at the case of Renaldo Hudson, a 37 year-old inmate on death row for a murder he committed in 1983. " But while on death row, the once angry and violent hoodlum became an exemplary prisoner and role model. . . Many people, including some prison guards and officials, agree that he is the most unusual of examples- a bad man gone good." Hudson says it was his religious flight to Islam and then to Christianity that helped him become a better man. 'I realized that I didn't want to die being good for nothing or no one.' Now supporters of Hudson are hoping to reverse his death sentence and get him out. But proponents of the death penalty argue that once he gets out he may reverse back.
