Welcome to my nightmare,

Tales from a Dead Man

The days blend into nights, the nights turn into days. The ways to battle depression are lost to me it would seem. The isolation cells we are forced to live in are slowly taking a hold of what little humanity I have left. The voices inside my head, they too grow tired. The screams grow louder but no one but me can hear them. Good morning Texas Death Row. What a wonderful day to be alive.

Today Texas will execute another person who claims to be innocent. But who in Texas will listen to a condemned soul saying that there’s been a mistake. Not the good Gov. Rick Perry or the Judges who oversee the high courts. Texas Justice is “Do as we say, not as we do”. We will execute to show the world killing is wrong in Texas , there’s some people in office who should look deep into the system for its definitely broken.  We even have an ex Gov., Mark White, who was at one time the States strongest supporter of the death penalty. He defended it as Attorney General and took personal responsibility as Governor for the execution of nearly two dozen men. But now he is speaking out and has changed his mind about Capital Punishment and if he was running for Governor he told the Dallas Morning News he would not be for it because it’s not secure enough to make certain an innocent person was not put to death. Well how about that folks? Well we have an execution set for today, what’s to un-fold is yet to be seen!

Well let me touch base on another issue at hand. I’m not sure if my blogs are reaching their destination. God only knows if this one will. Ever since Richard Tabler mailed out something that made a threat on a Texas Senator, the rest of us on Texas Death Row are being punished. Retaliation so to say. The mail that I’ve been sending out has been held on this Unit up to 14 days. Policy of Mail Rules states this facility has 48 hours to process my mail and get it to the US Postal Service. That’s not happening and if you’re reading this blog and your loved on is having the same troubles it’s time to voice your complaints to Huntsville Texas .  Ombudsmans Office and OR Jennifer Smith, the Mail Systems Coordinator.

Yesterday morning I saw a shocking event. We had an elderly man on our section named Danny Bible. He is in a wheelchair due to being almost paralyzed. Well he was angry at one of the officers yesterday and was at his cell door with his walker, he can’t walk without it, well he threw water on this guard and instead of leaving the section to notify rank, this officer pulls out his mace can and maces this old elderly man who can’t get away from his door due to the walker. They wheeled this man away to F-Pod with his entire face swollen because of the mace attack. That’s like you mace’n your grandpa! That’s Texas Justice!

SAD HUH??

Welcome to my nightmare… Tales from a Dead Man   The day has started off calm for me, I have once again awoken to the sense of amazement, I spent the night dreaming of past experiences of my life, these events took place in the 80’s.  What a wonderful night it was. To be awoke now, in this evil place is indeed depressing and alarming. Reality comes crashing in. My sole purpose is to be executed by the State. Hell just saying it sours the taste in my morning coffee. What a wonderful day to be alive.   The silence of the morning has just been shattered by screams of someone in the next section over. It echoes off these concrete walls I sit here and find myself getting angry, eyes blazing with maniacal conviction. It’s my quiet time and I do take offense to it being disturbed. How crazy is that folks? Then again if I was the one over there screaming in my sleep I could understand, because the one who is actually doing it is being attacked in his dreams. Haunted. For he is here for slicing an 11 year gold girls throat. I can’t even being to think straight. The horrors of this place, the demon’s, the monsters, they are real. Every time this person walks around in the day room I want to puke. How can someone kill a little girl by slicing her throat and then walk around as a tough guy.   I wish I could crawl back into my sleep, into those happy dreams I was having of my Grandpa and Grandma. Riding our horses, riding on the tractor next to Grandpa. My hero! What a mess I’ve made of things, but as they say: Into each life some rain must fall.   True American Mark Stroman

Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man

The day starts earlier and earlier for me. I’ve noticed I’ve pulled back from this little society I live in. I don’t know why but it suits me fine since I’m a morning person. A cup of coffee, a few good memories and absolute quietness. The only sounds I can hear at the moment is the hum of the air vents and that’s almost too loud.  Good morning from Texas Death Row. A place that will execute the innocent as well as the guilty, and let’s not forget Texas executes “Law of Parties” as well. So your qualified to die even if you have killed no one.

Yesterday morning as I sat here trying to write a few lines for executionchronicles.org the night shift riot team had to suit up again on “Lizard”. The wild Texas Seven dude on the other side of the Pod. I do know they don’t like to do this, it’s always a battle and you can ask the guys who are on the team if they would ever go in on Lizard one on one and they say “HELL NO”.  That’s why they send 9 men on him at night time, after they gas him. What a crazy society this is back behind closed doors.

The issue of me, my ending is getting closer. I’m now on my final leg of the appeal process after another denial, but that is to be expected. At times I’m ready to die but I have a lot of that stuff called “Self preservation” flowing in my veins. Yes the ending is near. Is that a light at the end of the tunnel or perhaps it’s fire.

Texas Death Row October 2, 2009 2:50am

Welcome to my nightmare Tales from a dead man The lockdown has ended. 15 days of pure hell. The actual shake down went somewhat better than before and the ones who hit our section treated us with professionalism. It was the feeding process or lack of. I normally would of reported the menu on these entries of mine but I did not believe it myself. Hell ever some of the “seasoned” vets of the prison staff who have been employed by Texas 15 or 20 years mentioned they have never seen Johnny Sacks such as these. Noodle sandwich and raw potato. SERIOUS! So when yesterday morning rolled up on us we had our regular meals which have always been cold (since we are fed in our death cages) but that cold tray of eggs and biscuits and grits were mighty fine. I ventured out of my cage for recreation first round too. I had to get out for my two hours due to the walls in my cage starting to close in on me. The voices inside my head screaming loudly. At times I just wish they would go away but then I realize Id miss them. The sadness, the anger, the voices of my death cage are real. What a day to be alive. As I was saying I ventured out for those two hours and after 15 days of not moving around using the muscles in your legs sure does take effect on ones’ body. I came back, showered and felt as if I ran to New York and back. Just from walking in a small inside monkey cage. We had 4 people set to die in Texas for September, the executioner managed to murder two. Two out of four. The others escaped with last minutes stays. Only to be sent back for that death countdown again. That is alarming as I’ve said before. To countdown ones final days on earth and to do all the things one can expect to do, only to have to redo that when the Courts lift the temporary stay WHEW Only in Texas can things be this messed up.

September 22nd, 2009 4am (Day 6 of Lockdown)

Welcome to my “Locked Down” Nightmare

Tales from a Dead man

Greetings to you all. The day is new, the promise of death is real and I’m reminded of this as I scratch off another day on the calendar and glance at the execution list which is directly in front of me on the wall. Yes Texas will kill another person in the name of Justice at 6pm tonight. It’s a sad state of affairs when you have so many executions that they don’t even get the local news anymore.  It’s like a morning traffic report or weather update. In Texas you can be sure of one thing, there’s a sign on all of our Highways and if you have ever had a chance to visit this beautiful State you will recall seeing it.

“Don’t mess with Texas ”

That was made to remind people not to throw trash on our Highways but I believe if the Texas Officials could, they would paint that above the execution gurney in Huntsville Texas . Hell I’m surprised they don’t try and sell postcards’ with that image. Texas is proud to kill you in the name of Justice and you don’t even need to be guilty. Look what happened to Todd Willingham in 2004. An innocent man was strapped to that death gurney and murdered. Now all of you haters out there who jump up and down like cheerleaders holding fuzzy pom poms when you hear of an execution should try to envision being that innocent person, being strapped on that gurney. Envision the whole procedure, the IV being inserted into your arms, knowing you are innocent. What a hell of a way to die, In the name of Justice. Blind justice.

That’s one to many in my eyes. And I’m in that gray area when it comes to the death penalty. I despise child molesters and cowardly rapists with all of my being, child killers etc. but to have a system in place that allows an innocent person to be put to death is all the proof we need. The system is broke and should be fixed. The next innocent person could be your loved one or even yourself. Envision that.

Yes, that’s just one person the State might actually admit that was innocent and murdered. But how many others. How many do you actually think Texas has murdered that were innocent. How many do you think Texas would actually come out and say “Oops” we made a huge mistake and killed your loved one. “Sorry”. I sit here on the front row of this battle field and am still amazed at how dysfunctional this place is. Hell if I was to wake up and all of this had been a dream I’d jump up and take off running to the nearest church and get on my hands and knees and thank Jesus for wake’n me up!

For all of this is a real nightmare.
