How on earth can Robert Blecker and Daryl Holton be friends?
That question pulses at the center of Robert Blecker Wants Me Dead, a surprising and often disturbing documentary film about passion, murder, and the American death penalty
Robert Blecker is one of Americas most impassioned crusaders for capital punishment. A self-described 'emotive retributivist,' Blecker teaches at the New York Law School in lower Manhattan. From those unlikely headquarters, he conducts a devoted one-man crusade to save capital punishment from the mounting wave of moratoriums and death-row commutations. Blecker teaches his young proteges that death is the only just penalty for 'the worst of the worst' the small fraction of the nations convicted murderers who have surrendered their right to live by the irredeemable viciousness of their crime. His fundamental credo is: 'Some people deserve to die, and its our obligation to kill them.'
