** PLEASE VISIT OUR NEW SECTION, "LIFE ON DEATH ROW"
We welcome you to this site with open arms!
We would like to make it clear from the outset that Randy does NOT have access to the internet, or to a computer. This is NOT a fan site, or a forum in which to ask for legal or financial support, and all decisions and posts regarding this site are made solely by Randy's close friends.
The purpose of this site is to bring your attention to Randy's life, as we believe that he deserves another chance. The facts in Randy's case fully support our belief that he is NOT a killer, and should NOT be executed. In reading about his life as it is now - through his own personal writings - we hope you will come to the same conclusion and share his story with other people.
We realise that some of you will enter Randy's world cynically, and perhaps even condemningly...However, what you will read on this website is a true reflection of the person Randy is today. Reading through his journals and memoirs will show the reader that Randy is not only aware of the mistakes he has made in his life, but that he also takes responsibility for those mistakes - it would be very difficult to fake the type of growth we have seen blossom in Randy, over the last decade or so of his writings.
Those of you who sincerely wish to learn about Randy will see that he is both worthy and deserving of forgiveness...Forgiveness is a powerful tool in the healing process, and as members of a society where a wide range of political, religious, and spiritual beliefs co-exist, the ability to forgive is something we all have in common. It does not excuse the actions of the perpetrator, but it does allow us to end the cycle of pain and suffering. A justice system based on vengeance, and a society without forgiveness and reconciliation, is NOT the answer. Compassion and kindness exist on death row, and these men and women are capable of redemption...No one is ever truly "lost."
We ultimately hope that you will leave this site with a clearer understanding of the death penalty and how it's applied, as we believe it has no place in a civilised society. In our **News** section, we endeavour to keep you up to date with news relating to the death penalty in Texas, and the Texas Department of Corrections. We have also provided a list of external links to various organisations with whom you can get involved, and lend your support.
Are any of us exactly the same person we were 20 years ago? We ask that you please keep this question in your mind when you enter this site.
We thank you for taking the time to read about Randy, and his life.
