ok I don't know if this is appropriate to post- as it is tasteless due to the fact that the death penalty within itself is horrible............but....... they have a page on TDCJ website where you can see upcoming excutions and look at a list of executions already taken place......and what the last statements were. how very sad. there are two scheduled for 4-20-05 and one young man was 19 at the time of his crime. he shot three ppl in a known drug house, his pic clearly illustrates what I would think of as being in the midst of withdrawl... anyway- here is the link to death row inamtes.

Billiejo:
I think it is appropriate. I can't beleive how brave, how kind, how.. I don't even have words to describe.. these men who were facing death are I am happy that there is SOME forum for their last words to be remebered, these people were so wronged by our society, their words should be remebered, for them and for their families

I agree with that. however, there are some crimes that are just plain evil that have been commited. it's a bitter pill. I am still against the death penalty.

there you can email a variety of national news programs in hopes that we can get Richard's story out. I have been copying some of the things he has said and the intro to his website that outlines the details of his conviction and ending it with a personal message about helping. I hope that this helps.

To everyone writing Rich, please read his last Uncensored. Very important.

And keep sending your letters, faxes, e mails, etc. to the Texas Govn., The Clemecy Board and Media. Time is short.

Thanks,
Suzanne

I hope they pay attention. Maybe they will if more and more people send them information about Rich, and they're concerns that the media is ignoring us.
