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.

Hallo, mein Name ist Rayshawn L Johnson.  

Ich lebe momentan im Todestrakt von Ohio. Ich möchte einen Brieffreund finden.

Ich suche eine Freundschaft mit jemandem, der offene Gedanken hat und gerne schreibt. Ich suche einen Menschen, der ein Ohr für mich hat und mit dem ich ein Freund im Herzen sein kann. Jemanden, der kein Spiel mit mir spielt.

Meine Hobbies sind Malen und Gedichte schreiben.

Meine Zeit im Todestrakt war nicht einfach aber ich schaffe es. Neue Freunde sind immer willkommen. Alle Briefe werden so schnell wie möglich beantwortet (ASAP!)
