The impact of Ronald Ryan's execution


Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of Australia's last judicial hanging, the execution of Ronald Ryan. For many, the hanging represents an important moment in their political awakening. For those who had some more prominent role to play in the execution drama, the emotional scars run even deeper. Former Pentridge prison governor Ian Grindlay was deeply affected by the execution and his health suffered badly because of it. A devout Catholic, he would say a prayer for Ryan every day of his life until his own death in 1984 - Mike Richards
