"It’s part of my critique of law that the reason it becomes so overly technical is to mask what it is really doing -- and that’s why a real human voice like Warren McCleskey breaking through the jargon sounds so pure and powerful. "
Phyllis Goldfarb, George Washington University, Professor of Law
"It was in the month of November 1981, when I first met Warren McCleskey at Jackson, on death row. I realized that this was someone I should talk to because one of the officers called me to the small window and said, “Moore, take care of him and look out for him, okay?” In all my time on the row, no officer had ever expressed any outward concern for another inmate."
William Neal Moore, on meeting McCleskey on death row in Jackson, Georgia
