Greetings to youll and Im very thankful that youve taken the time to read these personal words of mine. I wish to bring to youlls attention the deceit and trickery that the death penalty encompasses that not only deceives the condemned but those whom has taken the oath to mete out its maximum punishment. Those twelve jurors whom are citizens whom has also been deceived, duped, deluded. I will attempt to give you each of these words own definition, and at the same time, show you how each of them was so used to sentence me to death. I will also attempt to add some humor in all this, to keep your attention, however, know that this is indeed far from humorous to say the least. But, one must make light of his unfortunate situation, in order to maintain some form of sanity.  Though this will take about a couple of writing to explain and paint a full picture for you, because I wish to explain this all to you with official documents to make my point. Ill begin with the first of three words here.....

Involves falsehood or the deliberate concealment or misrepresentation of truth with intent to lead another into error or disadvantage. Now, what you just read is the complete process of a Capital Murder trial. Or, of the one in which I was processed through. I shall explain, as youll read further through this unimaginable sequence of events.....

Involves the playing on ones susceptibilities or naiveté This will involve the jurors, as well as myself, as each of us was taken through a process that weve never been before and was at the mercy of those whom wilfully misguided us and duped us. When a man was sentenced to die, from the actions of twelve people whom was readily influenced, by the powers that be, as well as being played on their emotions. Those whom are unresistant or yielding to law enforcement, and other powerful members i.e. District Attorneys, or Judges, and or expert witnesses.....

Involves the deception or misleading to the point of rendering a person unable to detect falsehood or make sound judgement hence, in deciding if one should live or die! ....

Now as you well know, each of those words are synonyms of each other, but they each has their own meaning which will be described in how I was convicted and sentenced to death row in Texas. Though this process is not limited to myself, its an operation of Texas judicial system, when it comes to all poor people charged with crimes. But, when Capital punishment is at stake this is the normal process.....

Sure there is, indeed a crime that has been committed, in which a life or lives has been taken): I for one, is extremely remorseful for my own actions, because they were committed against family member, inlaws, and my beloved wife. So, this has and still does affect me deeply and personally, unlike when the victims are unknown or unrelated to their accused killers. For me, knowing that I have a son, and step daughter that I love deeply, and knows the pain they must be going through to be without their Mother, Father, and as for the victims of my brother inlaw Titue, his beloved kids, as well. This makes it all the more hard for someone like myself. I pray that their hearts are comforted daily by Gods calming love and spirits upon them. For all the families enduring this unfortunate event in their lives. To all the victims and those extended family members. Im deeply regretful for the pain Ive caused in youll lives......

Now as when ones accused of a crime, hes deserving of due process hes entitled to rights still regardless of the acts theyve committed, or accused of committing. I as for one, has owned up to my actions and since the instant it happened, has always wanted to tell my side, explain my actions that caused those lives to be taken so early in theirs. But as the words, Ive listed above will give you a detailed event of why and how I ended up on death row. Not.. because Ive taken two lives. Even though one, was indeed lawfully justified under Texas law, and any other states law to be for sure. Thats the right to defend your own life, when its threatened and under serious attack, as mine was the night these two beautiful lives was taken, and other lives forever destroyed.....    After any crime is committed, theres a process undertaken which is called investigations From the outcome of these investigations, if they are properly done, by both the State, which is law enforcements, and the potential defense team, However way before any defense team is mantled, or formulated, the State has all the so called evidence and any related statements, from witnesses to this crime, from this an indictment is formed. This piece of paper, is the most powerful piece of paper ever. This alleged piece of paper can destroy lives to the fullest! Because its alleging/accusing you of a crime! Now whether these claims are true or not, they will cause you hell. This piece of paper called an indictment outlines all that youve been accused of doing, the crime in which you did commit, or the THINKS youve committed. Often times then not, when it comes to a Capital Murder chargethere will always be instances where added or exaggeration of additional elements to enhance the crime to a Capital murder, this making this person eligible for death penalty. Remember the words I started this off with? Those words starts then, as soon as the so called investigation has begun and completion thereof.....

Have you heard of the word motive? This is what the Police calls, the actions or reasons why one committed their act. If, If infact this motive isnt known, then they will formulate whats called a theory and from their Theory to either a known or unknown motives, this is where those three words listed in the beginning of these writings begins. But it does not stop there! Its continued all throughout the entire process of the trial, from each stage, from Investigation, forming of indictment, which is charging the accused, and into the first stages of selection those potential jurors whom will be methodically selected to serve on the jury. These are called death qualified jurors. Wait, allow me to back up here, I didnt mention to the appointing of counsel when often times the poor has to be appointed counsel. This too, Involves a scheme of delusions. Howso? Well for sure I thoughtId be appointed an attorney, whom would have my best interest at hand! I for sure thought, and was guaranteed that this court appointed lawyer would indeed fight for my rights to, for a fair trial Not only for that, but for my life!!!! Big mistake I made.....

But before I even go into that part, think of it as this, before you can even work with your court appointed counsel, you have to be able, Yourself. Well youll come to know as this story proceeds onward that I wasnt in the best of shape to consult with any lawyers before any proceedings began, because of my severe injuries suffered in the commission of this crime on, sentenced to die for. But, after a couple of major operations, and regaining my sense of self, I did meet one to two times with a man whom would have my life in his hands. And, from the first day, I met him, I expressed my desires to tell my side!! Explain to the jury, my family, my inlaws, family members what truly took place. But I was forbidden from doing this, by again refer back to those three words I listed earlier. Not only I was deceived, the jury was deceived by their jury instructions, the evidence they were told about, which wasnt any evidence at all. All parties was deceived, except for those whom planned and played a part in the cast of actors, as the play unfolded before my eyes in less that a weeks time. It took four days to begin and end this process that landed me on death row! Four days it took, and after fifteen years, Im still in trial court!....
I will explain for you all each and every point on how I and the citizens of Texas was deceived in sending me to death row! So this will be continued..... I hope that what youve read thus far will want you to read and know more, understand how a man can be sentenced to death when hes not deserving of death, when the facts and evidence doesnt allow for his life to be taken. When the laws of this state clearly says that, under certain crimes, committed, those persons whom committed that a crime shouldnt have his life taken, but be punished in another form/fashion,.. But from Deceiving the jury, Duping the condemned and Deluding everyone, time and time again this takes place here in Texas, men and women are sentenced to die from their juries being deceived, deluded and duped! .... I shall bring this to a close for now, and continue to gather more supporting evidence to back these claims. Not just hear my words, but to show that were all deceived into death her in Texas!!!!....

Id like to hear any comments from anyone who reads this, and challenge me on your own thoughts, feelings or emotions, and the law on what I shared with you. Im only wanting to educate and at the same time, expose my injustices, not just mine, but all of Texas condemned. I can only do this with my own case, for an example. I shall attempt to make this as simple as I can and help you to follow along and understand what all I share with you about Texas deceitful death penalty. Until Next time. ....

I want to tell you all about what is happening to me at the moment. I got a letter from my lawyer on 12th July 2010. let me explain to everyone on how I got my lawyer and who he is. His name is Jerome Godinich Jr, Now let me explain on how I got one of the worst appeal lawyers on my case.  When I got here in 2004, I had another lawyer (which I thought was good) who was appointed to me as my appeal attorney. He came up here to visit me letting me know that he was my appeal attorney and also to let me know that he will have his partner on my case as well. This was the the only visit that I got from him, but I did get a few letters from him. He also sent me a copy of the brief that he did for me, and it was good, brought up a lot of good issues. So we were just sitting back playing the waiting game. Around the end of 2008, I got a letter from lawyer, stating that he has filed to the courts, so he can get off my case, so he and his partner can be the head district attorney (D.A) and that the judge granted him that. So he told me because he is now a D.A he wont have nothing to do with my case, but that the court will appoint me a new appeal lawyer, and that I should be hearing from him or her soon. So I wait for about 6 months, nothing, so what I did was write to Texas defender service (TDS) asking them if they can help me out on finding out who my lawyer is or if I even had a lawyer. I also broke it down to them of what I was going through. T.D.S wrote to me on June 15th 2009 telling me that Jerome Godinich was appointed to my case on January 28th 2009. I was like what the hell. He has been appointed to be my lawyer for 6 months if not longer and I still haven't heard from him at all, do you think that's right? Hell naw it aint.

I let someone here look at the letter that I got from TDS and it so happens that the person who seen the letter has the same lawyer (Jerome Godinich Jr)and has been trying to get him off his case. He told me “Man get this fool off your case”, he also said this is the same lawyer that the newspapers has been talking about, that he has been filing people briefs late. I have read a few things that the papers has been saying. By him not letting me know he was my lawyer for already 6 months was telling me a lot LACTION. (speak louder than words) So I wrote to him asking him why is it that I had to go through the TDS to find out that he was my lawyer. I also told him that I didn't approve of that, I also told him that I asked about him and everything that I heard about him and everything I heard about him was trash and by him not writing to me shows me that it must be true, but I also told him that I wasn't going to go by that, so if he could write to me and guess what happened? NOT A DAMN THING. I didn't hear from him! I wrote to him 3 more times, nothing, I even told him that I was sending copies of letters to the courts, which I did, STILL NOTHING, so I wrote to TDS again asking them what should I do, I didn't hear anything back from TDS, So I didnt know what to do. I even had a friend of mine try to call him, she was unable to get a hold of him. Well after a while I got a visit from him and his partner Amy D.Martin. He was telling me who he was. I asked him a few questions. But the main reason he was there was because the Judge wanted to know the next day, what I wanted to do. She wanted to know if I wanted to stay in Harris County. I also told him that I would like for him to keep me updated on things with my case. I said look I wont write to you all the time, But when I do, for him to write to me back. I don't expect for him to come here to see me, but if I have a question for him to answer it, and if he does not know it, for him to find out for me, he is my lawyer. He told me that he can respect that. Well guess what? I wrote to him after that and you guessed it, never heard back from him. Then Amy Martin came up here to see me, just to see how I was doing. I asked her why hasn't Jerome written back to me, she said that he has been busy, so she gave me her card and told me to write to her, well I did that, and also nothing, So I had a friend (the same one) call her. Nothing. So she is doing the same thing that Jerome is doing, not answering.

So I just sat back to think about what I'm going to do. It's not too easy to get rid of a lawyer. Well guess what I get this letter on 12th July 2010 now remember all this shit I have told you, in this letter, he don't talk about nothing, all he does is offer to order me a book or a magazine, what the hell, all this time I have been waiting to hear from him and when he finally writes he offers to order me a book or magazine, NOTHING, about my case or why he hasn't written, but do you want to know the funny part (not really funny) is he knows that I have the Atkins issue, now how would it look like for my lawyer ordering me a book knowing that I have this issue, I know it don't make sense at all.   I wanted to share this with you all, just so you can see what kind of lawyers that I'm dealing with, not just me but a lot of us. I sent out that letter so my friend can make copies so I will be putting a copy up on the blog as well.

Struggle comes in all shapes and sizes, It can be self-imposed or the embracement of other peoples struggles, but no matter which its struggle. Since I've been on Texas DeathRow I've not only embraced, but stood up and fought against this killing machine and the inhumane conditions.With the fighting came repercussions and repressionary tactics that's used to break the spirit of the fighter.  Due to my focus on this struggle, in my 4 and a half years on death row, I've never taken time to focus getting myself the necessary sustenance to survive like any normal human being while I'm here. I've had a couple of donations request put on the site, but none that specified what type of aid that's needed, and why it's needed.

Death Row inmates are not allowed to work. Even if we were Texas Department of corrections (TDC) does not pay its prisoners for their labour or "modern day slavery" TDC issues 1 roll of toilet paper, and 4-5 bars of soap, that's roughly 1 inch by 2 inch sometimes on a weekly basis, mostly only when available. These bars and roll are supposed to last at least 7 days or more, although its only no more than 5 bars and we're allowed to shower 7 times a week. These are the only items of hygiene that TDC issues to its prisoners, everything else from toothpaste to stamps (even soap) is sold in the prison store/commissary. No money, no hygiene.  As far as clothes. TDC issues 1 pair of socks, and I pair of shorts, with 2 strings on each side and a small strip of Velcro on the front, for what they call boxers. The socks usually smell like feet from the previous wearer or have holes at the heel and or toe. The boxers can only be described as RAGS They're dirty brown, old, and almost never have the strings to tie them on. Socks, T.Shirts, boxers, shorts, and thermal shorts and pants are all sold in the prison commissary. TDC does not wash prisoners personal clothing, only the ones that's issued. So we have to wash our own clothing, using the soap that's issued (the 5 bars) or soap purchased off the prison commissary.

TDC raises their own food, from vegetables to beef, pork, and chicken. Every unit is fed differently because inmates are also the cooks. Polunsky unit is served a lot of pork, pork chops, pork sausage etc etc. Pork is served on average of 12 meals, out of 21, we're served out the week 7 of those are breakfast, mainly pancakes. I don't eat pork!! Im fed a pork free diet where beans are substituted for the pork. This is a tray full of various beans, pinto, butter, black-eyed peas, or lima beans, On numerous occasions ive found rocks, yes rocks, in the beans. When I receive this tray it sometimes , reminds me of the movie "LIFE" with Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence, when they were eating that tray full of beans and piece of cornbread.Then "Goldmouth" asked Martin, "You goin eat yo cornbread? Classic scene!!

The only choice of sustance I have is to eat the gravel filled beans or purchase food from the prison commissary. So what it boils down to is to live unhealthy and unhygienic or paying for the opportunity to live some what decent while I fight for my life.  The need for stamps and the cost goes without saying. Correspondence is the number One stress and depression releaver I have. To write family and friends, while knowing they're there to keep me sane, does wonders to keep my spirits up and the fight for my life Alive.

I ask anyone Reading this, that's able, to help with any type of aid possible, I know the numerous games played by prisoners, but I pride myself on my integrity and loyalty when keeping it real with my friends and supporters.
