Death Row General Facts
The Supreme Court and the death penalty:
The case of Furman vs. Georgia was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in June 1972. In that case, the Court held that capital punishment was unconstitutional and struck down state death penalty laws nationwide. A number of death penalty sentences were commuted to life in prison. In 1976 the Supreme Court overturned its ruling in Furman and upheld the constitutionality of the death penalty in the case of Gregg vs. Georgia.

We offer death row inmates free pen pal listings. We don't use a lot of frills or graphics. We feel the situation isn't suitable for that. We make no claims of their innocense, we are not inmate advocates and won't argue the merits of the death penaty. We simply offer their addresses because we feel that as long as there is breath, there is hope for the soul.
We have written all of these DR offenders and they all said they enjoyed our newsletters and correspondence as it took their minds away from the confinement, if only for a minute.
If an offender is on DR, they have been found guilty and convicted. Whether they are executed remains to be seen. We feel that in either case, life imprisonment or death, they have been punished enough.
Jesus when ask about the death penalty of a woman, he simply said he that is wiithout sin may cast the first stone. (paraphrased.) He did not strike down the death penalty, he was simply admonishing us to examine our souls first before we judged others.
Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, 1,173 convicted murderers have been executed in the United States. (As of September 1, 2009)

I am looking for someone special, are you a good man? Searching for a great friendship hoping for more with someone positive? I don't like games and dishonesty.
   I like the outdoors, dancing and movies. I really need someone special so I can make them feel special also. Just want something real in my life. If you are serious, take a chance on me, write a letter. This can be great for both of us. Waiting excitedly to hear from you.

Hi, my name is Brandy, but everyone calls me Bug. I'm from South MS, the gulf coast. I'm 21 and a true country girl at heart. I love to hunt and fish and have rode and trained horses most of my life. I love to draw and write and it's what I do with all of my free time.

    I've been locked up since I was 18. I've never been married or had any children, but that's because I never really had the chance. I'm a good honest person, and I hope you'll give me a chance. I'd love to get to know you.
   I hope to hear from you soon, i'll be waiting.
