See all.
George Junius Stinney (ca. 1944),14 years old. 
The youngest person to be executed in the United States. 
George was completely alone and helpless throughout the 81 day confinement, “trial” and execution as his family were forced to flee their home and child to avoid being lynched.
On the day of his killing, Stinney carried a Bible under his arm as he walked in to the execution chamber. He was later forced to sit upon this Bible so as to fit properly in the electric chair.
Neither did the state’s face-mask fit George, so, as he was hit with the first 2,400 volt surge of electricity, the masked slipped off, and witnesses could look into his eyes: wide open, tear filled; his mouth: open, salivating.
After two more jolts of electricity he was dead.
Oh, those eyes.
