Texas Death Row

November 24th, 2009  2:00am

Welcome to my nightmare, tales from a dead man.

The morning has sneaked in again. I was awakened by yells, screams and kicking of doors. An individual here on our section needed to see the medical staff and that’s like asking to see Santa Claus around this crazy place, but after enough chaos and constant noise and stuff someone made a decision to summons an escort team to take this man to see medical staff. He has recently returned, his blood pressure was a bit high 205/105. I’m just a simple Texas Redneck and don’t claim to know all of the secrets of our universe but I know one thing, that’s not normal there. Border line stroke! Good morning Death Row! What a great day to be alive… I think!

I want to bring an issue up, in my last blog I was very unsure if Texas had indeed executed that person on the 19th of November, Robert Thompson was his Christian name but since he came to the row he converted to Islam and was a radical and always talked down on America. The same America his family lives in. Anyways he was convicted of shooting someone and fell under the Law of Parties, which made him equally culpable for the slaying his “road dog” was given life for. That’s a bit of a confused issue, the one who did kill received life, the one who did not just go sent to the other side of the light. Or perhaps the flames. Governor Perry could of spared him since the Parole Board in a rare ruling recommended that he got life as well. Perry executed him!

Now let me bring up another issue, we had another person who received a 90 day stay of execution who was just hours away from his execution on November 17th and midway through his final meal (pancakes & peanut butter, oatmeal cookies and chocolate milk) when the Federal Judge halted the execution; responding on appeal that argued the person is incompetent to be executed. The way I see it, anyone who wants pancakes for a last meal has got to be crazy! These folks feed us pancake goo about 6 times a week. I almost fell off my bunk when I read this report. This person is real crazy, not just because of the pancakes but because I’ve lived on the same section with him, they call him Crazy Mike. That 9 year old he killed haunts him because he screams her name. “Chirrisa” leave me alone. I’m sorry! WHEW! I’m serious folks! I am in a nightmare, seeing all these twisted bent up people, it leaves me speechless. How can anyone harm and kill a child???

I hear the chow cart being rolled onto the pod, I believe it’s time for another dose of abuse. Pancakes I’m sure.

Welcome to my nightmare, Tales from a dead man

 

Hello from a cold, rainy Texas. The day started out with the normal yells of chow time, the banging of steel gates and a smile nowhere in sight. It starts at 3:00am and the usual cold gooey pancakes that are unfit for human consumption but then again, the media and pro death folks say we are not humans anyway. Nothings to good for us lunatics I guess, good morning Texas Death Row! What a great day to be alive!

We have had a very crazy week in Texas. We had three executions set and as far as I know, only one was put to death and he was a volunteer. There’s another one set for December and that will wrap up the killings in the Texas Death Chamber for 2009. Thus far I do believe it’s 21 for Texas. I do not know if the one who was set to die on the 19th received a stay or not, the news has said nothing to this, the last I heard the Texas Parole Board had said they leaned towards a life sentence since he is under the law of parties and killed no one. He did wound one seriously but that is not a capital offense so the final decision was tossed into our good ole fair Governor’s lap! What a way to pass the buck Parole Board!

 

I had wanted to venture outside for 1st round recreation this morning but there is a chill in the air and it’s raining. Normally I’d of jumped at the chance to get out in some rain but since it’s a bit cold out there I had a dose of self preservation kick in, to be sick in here is the same as being homeless. One will get no help or medicine!

 

I had to laugh at something that was said to me at a visit, I was asked how I felt after my flu shot. What? Flu Shot? I don’t know where you heard that at, apparently the media said that the Texas Prisons have already given us our flu shots. Well I’m not sure about the prison system, but I know we back here on the row have not been given any. Wouldn’t that make the general public go nuts. “Death Row given flu shots”. WHEW! But seriously, it takes an act of Congress just to get a pack of Tylenol from this place, let alone a flu shot!

 

I hope everyone has a blessed Thanksgiving!

Texas Death Camp

Veteran’s Day ~ God bless you all!

Welcome to my nightmare, tales from a dead man.

The starts with the usual slamming of steel gates and doors, a guard yelling “lights on if you’re eating” CHOW TIME! CHOW TIME!  The silence of the morning is shattered and a cold meal is minutes away, good morning Texas Death Row, I’ve been waiting for you yet again!  I scratch off another name from the execution list, Texas killed it’s 21st person last night, a man just a few days ago I said a final farewell too, the smell of death is in the air. We also have three more people set to die next week, November 17, 18th and 19th. The Execution Chamber is busy this month. The executioner is fat and happy with his Christmas bonus just around the corner.

As most of you know I’ve made a colossal error in judgment after September 11th, 2001 which I’ll pay for with my very life and soon in the near future. I want to say a few things that are heavy on my mind since I tend to say things that are not acceptable by the mainstream media I’ll be short on my words. Just a few days ago here in Texas we had a terrorist attack at Fort Hood and 13 American Military Personnel lost their lives and 30+  others wounded by a terrorist who lived under our flag! The event brings back pain, rage and anger from 2001. I listen to the news and everyone is afraid to say what this really was, an act of terrorism by a Islamist Terrorist. Pure and simple!

 

I believe in the First Amendment, Freedom of Speech but the news reports I am hearing are tip toe’n around the word “Muslim and religion .We as a society have grown so accustomed as to not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings our own leaders are afraid to confront the issues at hand. Political correctness is killing our Country. America needs to wake up, it’s only the beginning.

 

My heart goes out to all the victims.

Texas Death Row

November 3rd, 2009  2:27am

Welcome to my nightmare, tales from a dead man.

The night was spent in a magical dreamland, I was able to experience more dreams of freedom, days from my past. Happier times, happier places, full of hope and promise. I could hear laughter, see loved ones who are long since passed away. Dream land, what a beautiful sleep it was. Only to be awoken by the crossover door being slammed shut by the night guard doing their security check. From dream land to a living nightmare. Good morning Texas Death Row! What does the day have in store for us? Death? Sadness? Misery?

YES!

We have 5 executions set for November and yesterday I had been fortunate enough to have a visit and as I’m being escorted back to my cage of death by two officers there’s another man heading to the visit room, just like me he is in handcuffs behind his back with two officers, one on each arm. Standard procedure for “Dead man walking”. As I get near this man I realize he is one of the ones set to be put to death on November 10th and he sees me and smiles from ear to ear and asks me “How I’m doing?” and I reply “How how are you?”  He then says I’m keeping my head up. All is lost and I will die as scheduled.  All I could say was “May God be with you, see ya on the other side”. So as we continue to walk one of the officers who is with me says that was felt by him as well. I look over at him and realized he was sincere. He had just witnessed a dead man walking and another dead man (me) saying a final goodbye.

Now I want to bring up a new topic, and that’s the reason 441 Texas men and women have been put to death since the States death chamber was reopened in 1982. The reason the jury’s of our cases have voted for death is because they are asked a question, to consider prison as a society and prison society and will more than likely kill again then they are to vote for the ultimate punishment, which is death by lethal injection. Now I have a front row seat at the busiest death machine in America and I being a true American, red blooded Texas have always been for the death penalty cause that’s what we do in Texas. I was uneducated then, I thought all who were sent to death row were “the worse of the worst”, sicko’s, pedophiles and rapists and would kill elderly people, women and children. That’s what I call the worst of the worst.

The reason I just said all the above is this” Texas just issued and execution date for a 90% blind man. Gary Johnson, born in 1950, been on death row since 1988. He has to be held as he staggers to the shower each day by the POD officers. This man is NO threat to society, ANY society. There’s not one Texas death row officer, male or female who can honestly say he is. Texas is about to kill out of revenge an old harmless blind man.

All in the name of Justice!
