Description

Demarchoe Carpenter was only seventeen when he was wrongfully convicted of murder. He spent the next twenty-two years of his life trying to prove his innocence. His wrongful conviction isn't an isolated incident, but rather part of a larger systemic breakdown. Through Buried Alive: Demarchoe's story we hope to identify the systemic causes that ultimately led to his wrongful incarceration... and to use that knowledge to effect change.

Just last year in the United States, 173 people were exonerated, after being convicted of crimes they did not commit. They lost not only time, but also opportunities that us non-exonerees take for granted. Why does that happen? What causes wrongful conviction? Most importantly how can we help to solve the problem? Demarchoe was a teenager when he was sentenced to forever in prison - but the thing is he wasn’t guilty. Using the details of Demarchoe’s story we are going to try and discover what leads to wrongful conviction and how we can fix it. Can’t wait for the next episode?

Could Demarchoe’s story have really started years before he was born?  We talk about how North Tulsa was created, speak candidly with people who are or were a gang member, and discuss how a person gets into a gang how they get out. Brooke attempts to discover if Demarchoe was in a gang. Also learn what happened at the hospital after Demarchoe was shot. This episode is intense with some adult language - make good choices.
