Capetillo. Teenagers under the age of 18 cannot drink, cannot
vote, cannot serve in the military; it makes no sense that they can
be executed. There were four other men involved in this crime.
was also another shooter: he was 24, had a criminal history, and fired
his weapon first. However prosecutors only sight the death
against Edward Capetillo, a 17-year old high-school student and the

Manuel Vasquez- Texas
Death Row I am writing this plea for
help from my cell on Texas Death Row.
It is known worldwide that Texas
executes more men and women than any other state. Texas
politicians boast of their “tough on crime” stance and run their
political campaigns around their Pro Death Penalty views. All Texas
District Attorneys use “seeking the death penalty” as a tool in their
quest to move up the political ladder. This
political pressure to achieve convictions at any cost results
in an over zealous prosecution of defendants who do not have the
resources to hire professional, competent attorneys to fight erroneous
charges. These prosecutors use tactics outside of
lawful norms to persuade jurors to vote to convict and even sentence a
person to death. This is what happened to me.
Please read further to get a grasp of who I am and how I ended
up on death row for a crime I did not commit.
