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.

Never forget

Missing you




Never forget

Although it may of been doomed from the very start, I never hesitated to share with you my heart

From kisses of passion to the twinkle in your eyes I never imagined that we would say Good Bye

I never once doubed cause I thought you were true   Thats how I fully and completely fell in Love with you

I would give my arms for just one more kiss    Because that is somthing I will always miss

I remember our conversations during those long lonely nights we talked of our future, our pains, and even our plight's

Our future is undetermined as of yet But there was a happiness with you. I won't never forget


By John Quintallia 



For the last time my heart you will break _ cause no more chances will I ever take

For the first time I became honest faithfull and true _ I changed my old ways just for you

I never dreamed you could hurt me this way _ it's worse then word's could ever say

You may think it was all just a game _ that I never changed that I was always the same

But these tears tell a story of there very own _ aout a person who has changed and has even grown

Still, I yearn for the day we get back together _ Because ours is a love that will last forever


By John Quintanilla


Missing you


     Just like a cloudy night

Without no stars in sight


     You seem so far away

But in my heart your with me throughout the day


     As the day is get long and the nights are cold 

I think of you to have and to hold


     To warm my nights and brighten my days

 I'm missing you and your crazy ways


     I know you feel tired, lonesome and blue

But never forget  - that I love you


     You are my rock that helps me stand firm and with you I'll never waiver or never squirm


     So when the wind blows and the clouds grow thin look into the night as the stars shine through


     And know that while your thinking of me

I'm thinking of you


By John Quintanilla




If I could show you a love that is true  That is pure and sweet and meant only for you

Could you love me for who I am or would you just leave me as I am with a heart that is torn

With thoughts and memories from the past of loving feelings and emotions that will always last

I remember the cruessses, the thouching and especially your kiss 

But most of all it's your smile that I really miss

My heart still flutters when I think of you for I have this love for you that is so very true


By John Quintanilla



I love you best and I love you worse 

I love you so much I wrote this verse


As the clouds are white and the sky is blue

I am forever and always thinking of you


When I look at the sky I see the sun

the preasure of missing you weighs a ton


In my mind and in my heart

I meant forever that we never part


You are my moon and you are my stars

to guide me through the darkness and past these bars


I love you now as I loved you then

and come tomorrow I'll love you again



By John Quintanilla





My love for you is like an ocean of fire

I want it you to know you are my only desire


You are my gift from God above

To hold and cherish and to always love


In my eyes you are pure perfection

you are my one and only true selection


You are my flavor and my only choice

and being with you makes me rejoice


My love for you is real and true that in itself should be really great

So if I go wrong please don't forsake


I am not perfect and I do make mistakes

But to make you happy I'll do what it takes


You are my reason for living my reason to pray

and I love you more each and every day




By John Quintanilla


Its been one year we've been apart

But back in Juli you broke my heart


You stopped writting with no excuse

or maybe because of my verbal abuse


I'm more sorry than I could ever say

But I miss you more each and every day


I hope you can find it within your heart

To give me another chance or a new start


I will never ever give up on you

Cause I love you so very true


These aren't just words without any meanings

They come from my heart with all of my feelings

Days have come and days have past

I hope forever our love will last


As I do this time in my cell

Being with-out you is just plain hell


To see you smile would make me happy

Cause life in this place is so very crappy


Through thick and thin or ups and downs

we'll pull together cause our love has no bounds


I need your love like never before

To hold and cherish me just like you swore


Thought's of you and thought's of me

together in heart is where we will be


As I think of you I close my eyes

hoping we will never say our good bye's


I feel this hurt and I feel this pain

I think I'm slipping cause I fell the strain

As I look into the dark night sky

I watch as clouds float on by

As the clouds part and the stars sline through

with such briliance and beauty it reminds me of you

There was a twinkle your eyes held only for me

I captured it in my heart and thats when it remains and forever shall be

There are times when I get sad and I sit and feet _ thinking of you and memories I shall never forget

You are my one and you are my only _ And without you I will always be lonely

I will always know that I was made for you _ hopefully one day you will realize it too

I won't give up and I'll always wait _ for us to be together when they let me out the gate.
