Jennifer Thompson was raped in her apartment one night during her senior year by a man named Bobby Poole. She wrongly convicted Ronald Cotton of this crime after many trial proceedings, and he ended up serving for eleven years in prison for a crime that he never committed. Jennifer Thomson’s main argument and theme that she brings up in all of her lectures are that of capital punishment. She does not believe that capital punishment should be legal, especially after what happened to the man she accused of committing the rape against her. Jennifer states that capital punishment is unacceptable because sometimes the criminal is innocent; like Ronald Cotton. She argues that if capital punishment was a law in North Carolina at the time, that he would have been put to death, a man who had not committed any crimes or done anything wrong would be put to death. She stated that our criminal justice program does make mistakes, and we cannot afford to make those mistakes with people’s lives by ending them.
I have heard the stories told over and over again and I don’t even get excited when I hear the stories anymore. They seem dead to me. I imagine that is why, in Mark, God commands us to have childlike faith. Sometimes we get too overwhelmed with what we should and shouldn’t do, what we can and can’t say, and how we are supposed to act overall as Christians, that we forget what we should really be focused on; Jesus. It isn’t about religion or rules; it’s about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is about being in love with a savior who is jealous for your attention.

Matthew 11:28-30 "Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and
