Joe Arridy's IQ was 46, meaning he had the mental capacity of a 6-year-old.

There were so many things indicating Joe's innocence, yet he was still convicted of murder and sentenced to death. This is Joe's story, and it begs the question, should those with diminished mental capacity be eligible for the death penalty? Promo: For Nerds by Nerds
