State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

I am an Artistic man behind these walls, my imagination has lead me through many places, I've been lost for so many years searching for peace and love, trying to find a reason to want to live. Trying to understand why I'm here and what purpose do I have. Its only been a year and I can honestly say I have seen the light, I have heard my calling and I now am glad that I have cross this path with so many others.

           I am in search of Pen-Pals and people who are willing to help me financially using my art work. I am a great painter and have been painting for years now. If people chose to just associate with me only business wise, I do not have a problem with that just make sher that your up front and clear of your intentions. I am an honest guy, can be a true friend or just someone to talk to and share ideas. I am writing in two books, spiritual parables is what the books all about. I love to aducate myself in many areas, I am willing to learn as well as willing to guide others in their search of their path. In friendship i look for someone who really wants a relationship, that means no games, tell it like it is, no sugar coating anything express everything that crosses their mind , hey I love to read and get into someone life, it doesn't make me a bad person ... heres a picture of me just in case. I love all songs, I workout, read educational books. Most of all I seek out spiritual experiences. Remote viewing as some might call it. I'm 30 years old, 5'6 about 170, Yikes, brown eyes with a great sense of humor.

           Thank you very much for your time and those who read but didn't decide to write me, I have only have this to say " no matter where you go there you are .... when you find yourself there, may there be peace whithin you."

John Joe Amador ( AKA. ASH )
