State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

My name is Cedric Allen Ricks and I recently was put on death row. I’m 40yrs old and it’s my first term in prison. During the financial crisis, I lost my xxx and my home. In that time I moved to Texas and I was very depressed, because I left my family in Chicago. I was into construction management in Chicago, and my company layed me off. It was horrible for me, and I moved away, to start over, but get into a relationship and it went bad.... 

My family can't visit often, because their in Chicago, to get some pen-pals I really would appriciate.
