Episode: “Left for Dead”

In the Redemption Project episode “Left for Dead”, Van Jones travels to Sacramento to meet with Joshua “Gunner” Johnson, who has spent the last two decades struggling with PTSD and a spinal injury after being shot multiple times in 1994 by Christian Branscombe.  Christian not only left his friend Gunner to die that night, he also murdered Gunner’s close friend sleeping on the couch.  Van meets Christian at California’s State Prison at Lancaster, where he is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole, to find out why he turned to murder.  Gunner’s life spiraled down a dark unpredictable path after the attack and he wants Christian to hear the ripple effect his actions caused that night.  Van dives into the cycle of violence through their story.  Both men don’t see eye-to-eye on the events of the evening and for Gunner to fully accept Christian’s apology, he must make sure that Christian completely owns up to his actions.
