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.

Hello, my name is Dexter and I'm a young man that is currently fighting for his life. I'm on Texas death row where I'm isolated in a small cell 158 hours every week. Being allowed out 5 days a week for 2 hours each day isn't much, which mean I have a lot of time on my hands so I read, write and work on my case to help me cope a little in this hellish sitituation. 

My daughter is my main motivator, just thinking of my little angel helps me to keep fighting day after day, her smile brings light in this dark world I live in at the moment. 

The thing is though I could always use some support to help me through this and thats where you come in. A few words whenever you have extra time could really help and would be appreciated. Justing being there, having someone to talk to and to connect with can make all the difference.

Thank you for your precious time, I hope to hear from you soon!

Best wishes

mein Name ist Dexter und ich bin ein junger Mann, der gerade um sein Leben kämpft. Ich bin im texanischen Todestrakt, isoliert in einer kleinen Zelle für 158 Stunden pro Woche. Es ist nicht viel an 5 Tagen für 2 Stunden je Tag raus zu dürfen. Das bedeutet das ich viel Zeit habe, daher lese und schreibe ich und arbeite an meinem Fall, das hilft mir ein wenig diese höllische Situation zu verkraften.

Meine Tochter ist mein Motivator, allein an meinen kleinen Engel zu denken hilft mir Tag für Tag zu kämpfen. Ihr Lächeln bringt helles Licht in diese dunkle Welt in der ich momentan lebe.
Das Ding ist aber, dass ich immer Unterstützung brauche um das hier durchzustehen und da kommst Du ins Spiel. Ein paar Worte, wenn du gerade Zeit hast würden mir wirklich sehr helfen und ich würde mich sehr darüber freuen. Nur da zu sein und jemanden zum reden zu haben, jemanden den man kontaktieren kann, macht einen riesigen Unterschied.

Vielen Dank für Deine wertvolle Zeit, ich hoffe bald von Dir zu hören!
Beste Wünsche
