|Jim Willett worked in Texas prisons for 30 years. He saw first-hand the Carrasco hostage crisis, the longest prison siege in the history of the United States. He worked as an internal-affairs investigator, earning the resentment of his colleagues as he asked questions about guards' abuse of prisoners. And he watched the crowds gather when Texas reinstated the death penalty.|
Willett is now director of the Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville, Texas. He narrated the radio documentary "Witness to an Execution," which aired on NPR's Morning Edition and won a Peabody Award in 2000.
