A new book, “The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas,” tells the story of Raisuddin Bhuiyan, a U.S. immigrant from Bangladesh, who was shot in the face in Texas by a man trying to avenge the 9/11 attacks. Hari Sreenivasan talks to author Anand Giridharadas about Bhuiyan’s campaign to save Mark Stroman from execution.
