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.

Greetings & Special Salutations!

My name is Lee Taylor #999344. I have resided in a box on the infamous Texas Death row for 10 years now. I have however been in Texas prison since 1995 when I was 16 years old. I was found guilty of Agg.Robbery and certified as an adult. After being deemed to be an adult at 16 I was given a life sentence. I was sent to a mans prison and had little to do but survive ... Four years later on April 1st 1999 I fought off 8 black men with a shank. Defending myself against 8 men older and stronger, fighting for my life against a premeditated attack, I defended myself ... the result - I killed one of them. The state charged me with Capital Murder, got a guilty verdict and gave me the death sentence. HA! You thought the death penalty was for "monsters" ... rapist, sadistic killers etc.

Well, believe me TX system is screwed! My life story is sad ... but I must live on. My appeals are moving into the later stages of the system. I need good friends around me. Since getting married to my lovely wife 3 years ago, itís harder to get pen-pals for some reason.

I am not looking for romance at all ... sorry ladies! *wink*. However my mind needs stimulation! I enjoy many subjects ... History, psychology, ALIENS, Ha! Coast to coast am type stuff! I love sports! NFL,MLB,Nascar ... etc. Over all I am an easy going type of man. I have thoughts and opinions as everyone does! My life is possibly a short fuse .... who knows what the court (5th circuit of appeals) will rule.

So I'm trying to live here the best I can ... So I'm looking for compassionate people (male or female) to help me do so .... I'm not looking for a lot of money to buy legal terms etc.   however with stamps etc. are a big help. I basically want a friend. I may not have not long to live. And you have to realize that to know me is to love me! So if you contact me, understand that this could become an emotional rollercoaster ... I am a Str8 up type dude. I say what needs to be said-truth is always the best policy!

If you think you can vibe with me .... write me!

Keep on keeping on!

Lee Taylor
