Wrongful Conviction | Gov Abbot Testimony | Thanksgiving Travel
Sean Vaughn November 29, 2019
Three Baltimore men have had their murder convictions overturned after spending some 30 years behind bars. Alfred Chestnut, Ransom Watkins and Andrew Stewart were all released from prison Monday after receiving an apology from Circuit Court Judge Charles Peters on behalf of the criminal justice system that has caused them such heartache. “On the inside, I hate to put it like this, but we went through hell,” Watkins said as he was mobbed by his family. “This is the day that the Lord has made. He has set the captives free … my journey is just beginning.”
Our Texas Governor Gregg Abbot shared some of his testimony on Twitter about his paralysis. He was paralyzed in ’84 while jogging and a tree fell on him. He shared about how God has helped him make it through the struggles of being in a wheelchair. Governor Abbot says “Never quit, never give up. Overcome any challenge”.
It’s estimated that over 55 million people traveled yesterday for Thanksgiving. A higher number than last year and a continues growth since 2008. This report by Statista Accounts.
