Texas Death Row

Welcome to my nightmare

Tales from a dead man

 

Howdy folks, Tis that time again, news and stuff from good ole Texas Death Camp. Well as for the first thing, Texas has executed 16 for the year and more to follow. Some in my eyes were indeed monsters I’d never want near my kids, family or friends. The others, just some power hungry District Attorney trying to make a few notches on his or her “Oh look what I did” list to further their careers. Sad but very true. Also, Texas has executed 438 people since 1982 and 200 of these have been under the leadership of our fearless governor Rick Perry. Can you imagine that, 200 souls added to his very own list of “Hey look what I’ve done”? Can you imagine being stuck behind him on Judgment Day? WHEW!!! Gonna be a long day for sure. And they say I’m the monster or thug, NOT by FAR!

 

I have one more thing to mention, the latest “New News” on our radio’s is the “company went out of bizznezzzz”. So all this time the old story of them being ordered from some far off remote sweat shop in China has been a lie, because as long as we Americans continue to by from China as we do, there’s no way of any of their companies going under or shut’n the doors. Hell I saw an American Flag sticker just the other day and it had on the front of it in small writing it is “Made in China ”. WHEW! Anyways, looks like we are not gonna be getting any radio’s, direct violation of the law!

 

So as you folks know from all my rants and raves and past blogs things have really turned sour for death row. Conditions are just at the all time worst and folks are just tired of it. You can’t take and take and take from us and expect a happy group of guys to greet ya each day on the row. Now check this out, just found out!

 

Yesterday I heard from a few officers that they had about 7 uses of force on F-pod, the hole, which is now filled to capacity, the storm clouds have drifted in and the guys down yonder are being gassed daily. They are saying F-pod is now on lockdown and the way I’ve learned about this is the guards are walking around here glowing with joy as if they had just won the lottery or something. Something has got to be going on for sure!

 

So I asked “why” all the happy faces and smiles this morning to one of the passing guards and the reply was Captain Bryant has been “sh*t down” (fecal matter thrown on him) “WOW”! Not only do all the prisoners despise this man but his own coworkers hate him so it would seem they are “pleased” with this. Why? Because it’s this Captain who has started so much trouble back on the row and has put his own officers in danger. That for him to have been “sh*t down” has put a happy face on lots of State employees. This is why F-pod is now on lockdown.

 

The raid teams have hit us 3 times today and 3 times yesterday. I guess we will all be on the sh*t list of the good ole Captain for the next few days or weeks. That’s nothing new though! What a great day to be alive!

 

I just learned that the man who has done the “dirty dirty” is the same man I spoke about in my April 14th blog, the man goes by the nickname “Cujo” and the short time he has been here he has been content with what he had. Which was very little. He bothered no one. Now the administration went and took his boots and radio just to be mean and in return this man has wounded two officers and has now got the Captain with fecal matter.

 

That’s what I’ve been trying to say all along, we have death sentences that will one day allow the State of Texas to kill us. I live in a cage and am treated like an animal so yes it’s hard to be loving and compassionate. It’s hard to like people these days. But then you have a few of the big boys in administration who are not being “monitored” taking it upon themselves to add to the misery of death row by taking things just to be doing something. We are here to die, not cower at some power hungry jerk who hates us already. It makes no sense and I wonder what their excuse is for all the uses of force they are having now. I bet those documents are being falsified as well.

Texas Death Row

USA

May 18, 2009 3:47am

Welcome to my nightmare- tales from a dead man!

Slept rough last night, dreams had been so vivid and real that to awaken in this place was truly depressing. I was having a collage scene of dreams again, like my life passing before my eyes. Childhood memories so real that it amazes me that we are able to store these things inside of our minds for all these years and then it’s like something HITS the rewind button *WHEW*  It makes one really wonder, what are dreams? Who brings them to us?

Well death has come to Polunsky again, we have another one set for execution tomorrow. I’ve lost count but if I’m right this will make 15 of the year. This person set to be executed has been here since 1986, he is part of the old crew, the old laws that have no effects on the new cases, such as mine. Which is a blessing in some ways. This person has had execution dates before so I can only imagine what his mind set is like. Once would be to many times. That final walk to the death van ~  ALL ABOARD!

The conditions here are out of control, the hole is now full. They are now putting Level II offenders on our pod. That’s a sign that all hell has broke loose on the other end of the building.  It’s only a matter of time, the Administration is causing men to act like animals by treating them such as.

On another note, I have been “renewed” for another 6 months typewriter restriction by this hate filled Captain Bryant. Saw that coming though!

Texas Death Row

Welcome to my nightmare

Tales from a dead man

The smell of death is in the air… or could it be the stench of the raw and cold pancakes these goons fed us at 3:02am this morning? Needless to say the new day brings promise of pain, misery and sadness to all who dwell within the walls of 12 building of Polunsky Unit. The Building that houses Texas Death Row and it’s here we are supposed to be kept until our punishment is carried out which is death. Death by injection!

This month has been extremely bad for me and I have tried to put my thoughts, feelings and emotions into these pages for several days now but all I got was Anger. So I felt it was better to step back, chase the evil demons from my head and get a better hold of my sanity which had to be done in order for me to complete a blog that is clean and void of hate and anger.

Things continue to get worse by the day and the storm clouds are now within sight. F-Pod is filling up rapidly and its only to get worse as conditions grow into madness. I now begin to fear my point of break is in the very near future. You know that old saying, “The straw that broke the camel’s back”? Well that’s about all it’s gonna take for my point of break to surface.

As some of you know, the actual county we were sentenced to death in “pays” Texas Department of Criminal Justice to house us, feed us, and clothe us until we are actual property of the Texas System. When we are given a date for execution that means the actual County Judge has signed our death warrant which gives Texas full authority to carry out our sentence. “Punishable by Death” is our fate but Polunsky Unit sees it as part of their job to punish us, abuse us and treat us as animals before death!

So we are all still property of our County, once that good ole death warrant is sent to TDCJ then we are State Property and the execution process beings. Are you confused yet? Well I am trying to give you a better insight to house the Texas Injustice System works.

The reason I bring all this up is due to the way we are being punished on a daily basis, and now this administration is taking the only thing we have left and using it as a punishment tool, and that’s by banning visitors. Yes people, the Warden at this Unit is so full of hate and is trying to impress the Regional Directors and save his job that he is banning dozens upon dozens of family members, wives, friends and even some Religious Volunteers. IT MAKES NO SENSE!

As you know from all the past blogs and news media coverage that in 2008 a cell phone scandal kicked off and due to some rat snitch who called a Senator all hell broke loose and now the Warden’s are trying to save face by banning people. You could be at a visit and say the wrong thing and your loved one is banned. Reason given ~ threat to security. You say one wrong thing about this administration at visit and try to get your loved ones to help raise awareness ~ BAM ~ BOOM —- they are now banned. Reason given ~ threat to security.

The moral of this rant and rave is this: they are banning people now for the smallest violation to show their bosses that “hey look I’m being a good warden now and am monitoring these convicted killers and banning all their loved ones” Please don’t fire me!

The majority of the people being banned are not a threat to any security. This is being done to inflict more pain and punishment on us and to make a good show on paper work. When the high ups ask what are you doing to ensure that no more breach’s of security have been made, simple ~ just look at the 40 or 50 people who we’ve banned as threats to security!!!

SEE MY POINT FOLKS!

Now as this goes, if a loved one is banned that means that they will not be able to visit or be at the execution when you are allowed to have your pick of 5 loved ones to be present at this event of death. One must be on the actual visit list to be approved. But Texas will want you to be all friendly ~ please don’t cause any trouble. Please get on the gurney, be a good boy

ROLL OVER

It’s execution time!

Well I’ll start to draw this to a close. The storm is brewing and the clouds are within sight. I can’t speak for everyone but there are well over 25 people I know who have loved ones banned since the start of 2009 and people are upset. And I know there’s more who I have no earthly idea of their recent banned loved ones but the talk is fast spreading.

It is what it is.

Texas Death Row

April 20th 2009  4:06am

Welcome to my nightmare, Tales of a dead man!

It’s a new day, a new week, a new journey into the unknown. But there’s one thing for sure you can count on in this oppressed confinement, the promise of death by execution is very real. The horror of death row is that you die a little each day. The waiting kills you. You live in a cage and when you wake up you mark off another day and tell yourself, your closer to death.

This weekend it rained like some tropical storm blew in and I’m finally blessed to have a cell that doesn’t flood me out. I had to purchase three can’s of petroleum jelly to secure the threat of a flooded cell, most can’t do this, but the cell I’m in has only a hair-line crack at the top of the concrete ceiling that is the whole length of the back wall, so I used a sturdy card and applied a long thick glob all the way from corner to corner. It works or until the Gestapo raid teams come and make a mess of it. A man down the run from me had rain water running out of his cell door. Yes I am fortunate indeed to not have to panic each time it gets cloudy. The man a few cells down, I had actually thought he had flooded his own cell because so much water was coming out from his door but he was at recreation, unable to save his belongings. Modern Polunsky Unit- HA!

Well not let me give you a bit of news that has angered many of us back here waiting to be put to death. As you know from my last few blogs we are being denied access to the outside world, news, world events, etc. Texas is the only death row in American that is not allowed TV access. Now we are being denied access to radio purchases. It’s been since 2008 since they last allowed us to buy any and the terror teams and that hate filled property officer Ms. Smith are confiscating most of the remaining ones we have back here. A man a few cells over just has his took due to the fact he had a small smiley face sticker placed on top of it. That’s wrong and proof they are on a mission. To remove all radios from death row, hell I just this morning from the guards that some pirates had an American held hostage and navy snipers rescued this heroic Captain by killing three pirates. See, Polunsky Unit has us blocked from all the outside news. This is bound to be highly illegal… Right??

Now the reason I am bringing this up again is because of what has just been done on 10 building which is medical. Death row is 12 building. The cells in the medical building have all been gifted with 12 inch clear, see through, black and white televisions. The exact same kind that death row was promised to get a few years ago. So again, this is direct proof these clear and see through televisions do exist and can be sold to death row, but we are being punished as “ad-seg” offenders, this is WRONG!

I know there’s several anti-death penalty groups out there who have been fighting for our lives and for the simple things such as TV access, well I personally thank you and wanted you all to know what’s really going on behind closed doors of this dungeon.

Till next time, I remain in the struggle.
