US death row inmates decry 'broken system'

Reggie Griffin was in prison for 30 years, sentenced to death for a 1983 murder he did not commit.

    Opponents of the death penalty in the United States say innocent men and women are being executed because of a broken and biased system.
     
    Since the 1970s, executions have largely taken place in the midwest and southern states.
