We find it regrettable that most American media is more interested in looking at or hearing about the one or two high profile cases on our pages, in order to upset and inflame victim's families at the expense of the hundreds of other prisoners for whom we have set up websites; many of whom are wrongly convicted, have issues in their cases, were juveniles at the time of the offense, are victims of endemic racism and or corruption in the judicial system etc.  We invite journalists to look over our pages to see what horrifies human rights activists worldwide.

Dear Viewer,

I can't help but to wonder, that after going through all the court proceedings of my trial and all The media statements about me, could there be someone out in the world who would be of open mind, not to take everything that the media has said about me and be willing to learn for themselves, just who I really am.

I don't have no complaints about my due, as you can see by my photo, I have lived a life inside these walls.  It's almost as though this is "Home sweet home", sad but true.  The most often thought that I do I have, is wondering if, for someone like myself, can one ever fall back in love with life again.  For myself,
I feel that I do not have that right or even the time that one spends considering such a selfish thought.

I am half American Indian, Paiute and Shoshone, from the State of Nevada.
I am also half white, English I am told, so you can say that I am the classic half breed.
I was born, June 2nd, 1954.  I have never been married and I have no children.
It was always my thought that if I wasn't willing to stay out of crime, then it wouldn't be right to stick a woman with a child of mine. (Smile) I have been told that this was the only decent outlook that I had.   I am not religious and since I never considered just what a high power thought of my actions, in the white man sense of religion.
I am of thought that why should I consider seeking redemption or ask for forgiveness for my actions in life.  As the saying;  You made your bed - now you must lay in it, my thoughts are; I dug my grave - now I must lay in it.   I have had guys on the yard, who are deep into the Christian beliefs, try telling me all that it is.  Though I have found that each has their own thoughts and ideas of things and how one has to go about studying, to many different views and arguments that pursue this issue.  So I guess,
I should just stay with the Indian outlook of things.

It's like when they recommended that I be given the death sentence, which I knew was going to happen.  My Indian grandmother came to visit me at the jail.  She told me; You ain't no dog, so you can't  go out like that.  You sit straight up and look them  in their eyes, show them nothing, let them see what an Indian is all about.  You know how we believe and what we believe in, just make sure that you are ready when your time comes, so that you'll be ready for the next stage.

I know that there will be some that will not agree with any or all that I have said.
Though isn't this the point, to let you out there know my thoughts and feelings,
so that if you want you can write to me and express your thoughts and feelings
