Info about song
This UB40 track, 'Tyler', is about Gary Tyler, a black American youth charged with the murder of Timothy Weber, 13, a white American. He allegedly fired a shot from his school bus as a group of white racists attacked the vehicle. Tyler was tried as an adult and convicted at trial in 1975 by a Louisiana court. The case was marked by several flaws and alleged lack of experience of his lawyer. The police produced a gun they claimed had been found on the bus, and it later disappeared from the evidence room in the decades following the conviction. Since it was a capital case, Tyler was sentenced to death by electrocution. He became the youngest inmate on death row. In 1977, Louisiana's death penalty was ruled unconstitutional and Tyler was resentenced to life in prison. He is serving his sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana.
