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.

me & my lil sister

Tuesday May 5, 2015

Dear future friend

Hey what's up, how’s it going? If your reading this then
you’re in for a treat
. Your about to learn all about an individual
who has as we say in Latin
"Veni Vedi Vici" ... I came I saw I conquered! As I'm sure you all have figured out by now, this little thing we call life is one long continuous string of weird crazy learning experiences. I'm in a position where one of the main things I want to do Ls share e all that was, is & will be of my life! Now you’re probably wondering why that is ..??? Well get ready, because here comes the first zinger(careful, because the zingers fly fast in the thunder dome) ... I am a 30 year old Hispanic who lives in an all bills paid gated community that also provides weekly dry cleaning ... I'm an inmate on Death Row, & not just any Death Row, Texas Death Row! The Death Row capital of USA where more people are executed than all other states combined.
The purpose of this letter it to introduce myself to anybody who's willing to get to know me. All in the hopes of gaining & building some friendships that will last a lifetime. When people think of Death Row or prison-inmates in general~ it's usually an image of a violent unsympathetic eon artist type of
person. Well I have came, saw
& conquered this stereotype.

Just as there is a wide assortment of diversity in every community
in the free world, we are also very diverse in here in the
prison system. Before I begin to tell you all about myself, I want to share something that the Russian author/poet Fyodor Dostoevsky once said
. He said "The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prison's."! I'm the kind of person who likes thinking thoughtful thoughts, & as you will see humor plays a big part in my life in here. Now, on to a summary of my life & who I am ...

My story begins in the rural countryside town of Greenbough
Alabama where I grew up with m
y mom & spent a lot of time with

my friend Jenny ... Oh wait, that's the beginning of the "Forest
Gump
" movie! Sorry , I daydream a lot. .. & I always wanted a friend
named Jenny
.(So if there's any "Jenny's" reading this all I want
to say is "'Sup
"!) Alright, my story begins in Houston Texas
where I spent most of my early childhood
. My grandma(maternal)

magazines ...BUT, they must be sent to us from the vendors(publisher,

bookstore, online store,etc.)! We can't receive these mailed

personally from somebody directly. This prevents people from

smuggling in contraband to us As far as writing materials,

we used to be able to receive these from outside vendors as well ...

but now we must buy all this from the prison commissary store.

The prison system is basically cornering the market on this

by saying "You can't write to nobody unless you buy the materials

from US!". 1 believe this is what they call a monopoly, since

they are selling us materials that they are manufacturing in

prison factories.(It is called "Texas Correctional Industries")

We are still allowed to order & purchase greeting cards from

outside vendors, so that is good.

Well there you have it, my story from as far back as I

can remember to the here & now.(A quick summary of it at least.)

As 1 said in the first paragraph, the purpose of this letter

is to introduce myself to anybody who I s willing 'the get to know me.

1 hope to get some good responses from folks who are looking

to make a true lasting friendship. People who like to write

long letters & are open-minded so that we can talk about anything

& everything. I'll share all that I am with those who are willing

to do the same. Can you see the Sun during the day from where

you're at? 1 can, so I guess we must not be that far apart!

If you write me 1 will always give you a speedy reply. Thank

You for taking the time to read this ...BYE ...MUCH LOVE ...

 

The following is a few poems of mine that l'd like to share

with you ENJOY! After these I will list all my contact info.

 

"Voice of Execution”             2-4-15

 

What do they want from me

just leave me alone.

I'm trying to be at peace

with this heart of stone.

It seems remorse came late

still can't accept this fate.

 

                                (cont. on next pg.)

... like incantations.

Now just know I felt the need

to express my thought's.

On the power of words

learned & taught!
