That's the title of a news article in today's Yale Daily News by Staphany Hou.
On Sept. 21, 2001, Mark Stroman walked into a convenience store and attempted to murder Raisuddin Bhuiyan. Ten years later, in a twist of fate, Bhuiyan campaigned against the Texas courts to save Stroman from the death penalty.
In his most recent book, “The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas,” New York Times columnist Anand Giridharadas, who spoke at a master’s tea in Ezra Stiles College on Wednesday afternoon, tells the story of Stroman’s shooting spree and Bhuiyan’s mission to prevent his execution. At the event, which drew about 30 people, Giridharadas talked about the process of writing “The True American.”
