Texas Death Row
December 5th, 2009 4:15am
Welcome to my nightmare, tales from a Dead Man.
Greetings from a very cold and chilly Texas Tomb of misery. Our day as most of you know has started with the same cold raw pancakes, cold watered down coffee and 5 raisins. Well bless my heart, someone must be in the Christmas Spirit, 5 whole raisins, WOW! I do think I’ll eat one now and save the other 4 in case I get hungry in the next 15 minutes What a great way to start out a rotten day!
Talking about rotten days, its been really hard to focus on anything the past week or two. The loudness of our section and the sleep deprivation is overwhelming it’s all due to someone in charge ordering these officers who work the pods to make sure everyone is racked up before chow is fed. Which means this: first wave of recreations go out, and by 9am it’s time to rack up those first recs (place back in cells_ and since someone has said no one can be in a rec cage while the feeding process is going on they leave the second wave of recs in the cells and await the chow cart to arrive on the pod. By the time the feeding process is completed and trays picked up and the second round is put out it’s 1pm. They could of ran 2nd and 3rd round of recs in that dead time between 9am and 1pm So what this does is make recs go way into the midnight hours. We are supposed to have undisturbed sleep from 10pm-3am but it’s not been happening. It’s now like 24 hours of yells and screams and its taking it’s toll on me and several others. Sleep deprivation is a form of torture. This is a serious problem Indeed!
We have a grand total of 22 executions for 2009. The final State sanctioned murder was held this week and since I have some very strong views on child killing pedophiles and people who prey on our elderly and females I’ll just keep my mouth shut. It amazes me how the worst of the worst are spared and walk free in population. Yes we have some in my eyes are the worst of the worst and Texas did not put them to death. But the system is broke. It’s no longer the worst of the worst who come to the row. It’s the easy wins by a prosecutor. To add to a frame of “hey look what I did”. I’m tough on crime. “WHATEVER”. The system and methods used to determine who the bad ones are, the worst of the worst is shattered and broken.
Till the end
