|Mark Stroman, who is scheduled to die Wednesday, talks to Don Teague about his jailhouse conversion.|
That legal fight will be the subject of a piece airing tonight on the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley. Don Teague, who today announced he's leaving CBS for NBC, interviewed not only Bhuiyan, but also Stroman, who so far has rejected most interview requests from Death Row.
In the segment set to air, Bhuiyan explains his crusade thusly: "We have to stand at some point and say enough is enough. We have to break the cycle of this hate and violence." Stroman tells Teague that "these nine and a half years have been a journey for me. ... I mean, I've come from a person with hate embedded into him into a person with a lot of love and understanding for all races."
We will post the video when it becomes available, which will be some time after this evening's 5:30 C.S.T. broadcast.
