I am an inmate on the Texas death row.
Issue 287

As an American in the best position to give you a different perspective on the Iraq prison abuse situation, it is my hope that you will not let the US government continue to bullshit you into believing all this ‘we are shocked’ stuff. The US constitution gives the government the right to treat people as slaves. It has the right to beat and mistreat anyone locked up.

The president knew about the abuse. Please keep in mind that this same man was once governor of Texas. As governor George W Bush executed a British citizen, a German, a Canadian, a citizen of Mexico, juveniles, the mentally retarded. The list goes on and on.

When military personnel mistreated US personnel in other countries, those responsible were brought to the US, convicted and hanged for the same treatment now imposed on the Iraqi prisoners, and the prisoners in Cuba and Afghanistan.

Photos are worth gold during these trying times, but nobody can take any photos inside the death row unit where I am housed. To this day I still need help. Please read about my case at and write to me if you can. I am innocent of the crimes I was convicted of, but because of the Wild West justice that prevails in Texas, my claims don’t matter to the powers that be.
