letter from a prisoner

while wandering around the internet I stumbled upon this story, and found it kind of interesting. a man in texas is currently on death row due to be executed in the next month (from what I've read) for his part in a crime where a man was killed despite the fact that he had no part in the murder (his partner in the crime confessed to killing the man and got life)

what interested me about the story was the letter this prisoner wrote about the justice and prison systems in america... something which the prison system here in the UK seams to be headding towards. with prisoners being forced to work for next to nothing as slave labour for companies.

it's a bit long but well worth the read
