    George Junius Stinney Jr. was, at age 14, the youngest person executed in the United States in the 20th century (1944) The boy was small for his age (5’1) so small, they had to stack books on the electric chair. This clip is from the 1991 movie Carolina Skeletons which is based on that event. Because there was literally no evidence against him (accused of murdering two white girls) the question of Stinney’s guilt and the judicial process leading to his execution remain controversial (ie. there’s a strong possibility they executed an INNOCENT person) The police rounded up several black boys from the area besides George, according to his brother.
