Smile Intro -- Tranquility a.k.a. Ben

I shall take the pleasure of going first - even though I'm an old-timer!

I've been here for a small while now and have been involved in the 'Capital Punishment'
area of the prison system for a little over six months now.

Upon joining PTO I have encountered some of the most wonderful people
- who have not only helped support me but are an inspiration to us all.

I look forward to what the future holds. And although I know not all of it will be pleasant;
as LadyArkles said: We are here to support each other through this difficult journey.

- Ben.

Hi Rach,

Well I am nortynou and I have been involved with the Death Penalty for over a year now. I have a few penpals on Death Row and one also in General Population. I lost a very dear friend in March to an execution however have found the support and PM's that I received to be overwhelming. This is a great place to be able to find out information and support when you need it.

I have also had a loved one in the oz prison system and have had to go through the trials and tribulation of that.

nortynou

Hi, i am relatively new here...i have been checking out a few of the forums, and have only put in a few posts, and i thought i would introduce myself "properly"...well i haven't had a lot to do with the prison system and happend to stumble across a site about a year ago, wanting penpals for DR inmates...well i started writing to one and have found one of the most beautiful people, and who i can say is now also one of my best friends. i also came across this site by accident, and i must say it is very addictive! the amount of wonderful support and information, is fantastic! and it is so nice to know there are so many other people out there sharing the same experiences!
I look forward to alot more time spent in your company!!
Thankyou.

I guess I'm a bit of an oddity here but if you bear with this post I hope I will explain myself properly...

I do actually believe in the DP but and it's quite a big BUT....
1) The theory is sound but the practice is different
2)Even theoretically only in the case of the worst serial killers (don't see why tax payers should fork out to keep someone inside like Gary Ridgeway..and yes I know the practicalities show it is more expensive than LWOP but as I said theoretically...)

I had 3 pen friends on DR (well 4 but one was serious deranged!) and they knew my opinion and respected it and understood it... I had to lose my friend when I moved abroad to a country where post is at best arbitary (and with the DR postal system we stood no chance!). I do have some internet access (when the electric is up and they know I am still following them all with interest and hoping and praying for them always...

So that's me..... (There is a bit a more to me than that but hey don't want to let you into all my secrets!!!!)

Weeble
:-)

Welcome Weeble And now that I'm here I'll properly introduce myself as well. Just noticed I hadn't done that yet. Bad YapYap!

I'm writing to the sole woman on death row in Florida. They're treating her VERY badly (shame on you Lowell!) and for me there's not a shadow of a doubt that she's innocent, which makes the situation even more grave. I know many people on DR claim they're innocent, but I've reviewed her case and it's obvious many, many mistakes have been made by the investigators and the trial was a sham. She's currently going through appeals and is very optimistic she'll be granted a new trial and get acquitted. I don't dare to be that optimistic, we're talking about Jeb Bush's Florida here... Needless to say I'm 10000% anti-DP.

Right now she's going through a horrible period. She lost contact with her son and is very worried something happened to him. So me and another pen pal are working very hard to locate and contact him for her. We've found a sign of life as recent as last month so her fears that he has died seem unfounded. I hope we'll find him soon and that he'll send a little note to his mom to let her know he's okay.

Hey Yap Yap, great to meet you. I hope that you are able to find your pals son for her and that she is granted a new trial and is acquitted.

Take care,
