Jason Flom and Kim Kardashian West in Conversation About the Julius Jones Case on 10th Season of 'Wrongful Conviction With Jason Flom'
"The officers were high-fiving one another and told me: 'You know you're gonna fry,'" Jones said in his clemency report. "While being transferred from an Oklahoma City police car to an Edmond police car, an officer removed my handcuffs and said: 'Run, n*****, I dare you.' I stood frozen, knowing that if I moved, I would be shot and killed."
By telling Jones' story in the Season 10 premiere of the show, Flom and Kardashian West hope to galvanize listeners into taking action to save the life of an innocent man.
"I know that we have to be loud and I feel in my soul that we are early enough because an execution date for Julius hasn't been set yet," said Kardashian West. "Now is the time where we all just have to come together."
