There were four other men involved in this crime.  There was also another shooter: he was 24, had a criminal history, and fired his weapon first.  However prosecutors only sight the death penalty against Edward Capetillo, a 17-year old high-school student and the only non-white defendant in the case."  Visit his webpage for more information on his case.

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.
