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.

My name is Santos Minjarez and I am a Texas D/R prisoner. I am writing in search of a pen pal. I am looking for someone with who I can share thoughts, ideas, experiences and whatever else desting might allow. 

I do not have anyone writing to me after my mother passed away from cancer.  The only requirement I have is that you be sincere when you write me and be in it for the duration. 

I will answer all letters everyone is welcome, so please write soon. If possible, send a photo of yourself so I can see you when you reply.

Thanks alot and may God Bless your heart.

Mein Name ist Santos Minjarez und ich bin ein Todestrakthäftling. Ich schreibe dies um einen Brieffreund zu finden. Ich suche jemanden, mit dem ich meine Gedanken, Ideen, Erfahrungen und was sonst noch durch die Kontrollen zugelassen ist, austauschen kann.

Ich habe niemanden, der mir schreibt, seit meine Mutter durch Krebs verstorben ist. Die einzige Anforderung, die ich stelle wenn du mir schreibst ist, dass du immer ehrlich bist.

Ich werde alle Briefe beantworten, jedermann ist willkommen, also schreibe bald. Wenn möglich, schicke bitte ein Foto, damit ich sehen kann, wem ich antworte.

Vielen Dank und möge Gott dein Herz segnen.
