What you fail to mention - AS ALWAYS - is the fear Mr. Horton must have felt when Troy killed him. Also what is never mentioned is the lyrics to the metallica song Troy said in court. And... Mr. Horton lost his life for how much money? $14 or somewhere in that area? Why is it that some of you Anti's like to glorify the murder with comments of how truthful they are and how nice they are etc. and you never want to mention the crime that put them where they are?

Pam, I love you like a sister, but what you have said here truly makes me sad, and in some ways hurts. ok I am probably going to regret asking this but why does what I say make you sad and hurt? I only spoke the exact truth. I did not bend it or gloss it over or even try to sensationalize any of it. Just straight up truth. So tell me...................

Nope I sure don't wear an armour of steel - in fact I am so much of an emotional type that generally I wear my heart right out there on my sleeve, and everyone knows this, combined with the fact that I am Type 2 Bi-polar you betcha ass I have no armour. Enough time has passed and I have come to terms with all events that year that I can remove my emotions and speak very candidly about the whole thing. In fact - I use to have on here a post titled "Before becomming a death row pen pal read this" where I spoke very openly about my experiences. I think one of the other admins removed it - I never asked why but I think I will go through and restore it. For those here who don't know my story here are some details about what Frankie said so you can understand it more: (gotta warn ya this is gonna be a long post)1. the picture: He wrote to me and said he had a special gift for me but would give it to me when he saw me. In visiting my first day he motioned to one of the guards to hand it to me, it was wrapped nicely, and all the other guards in visiting and even some guards not from visiting gathered around both me and him to watch me open it. I did, I looked at him - tears filled my eyes and I was so overcome by emotions that before I could speak a word I had to get up and run into the bathroom sobbing uncontrolably. I had sent him a photo of myself and he took that photo and drew it as a HUGE portrait. I will attach it here for you all to see. 2. the bathroom: mentioned this is previous response.3. "feeling him": It seemed that he and I could connect or at least shared emotions. Can't explain this one4. The star: I wrote to him about the space station - I called it the brightest star in the sky and use to tell him it was in the sky directly over texas, told him it was watching over him. After he died, when I got home to NY, that night my start had a red twinkling light on it that had never been there before. draw your own conclusions from here.5. the words... "They did it. They killed him!" I was against the death penalty at the time - I was uneducated desperately sorting through my feelings and I had just witnessed someone I cared for die. Of course that is what I said - who wouldnt feeling the same way?OK there ya have it... my heart on my sleeve again.
that I am Type 2 Bi-polar you betcha ass I have no armour.
[(or turned ourselves in as a good citizen )
Noosh - you need to go back and re-read what I wrote - you seem to enjoy putting words in someones mouth that just wasnt there - I SAID "SOME OF YOU ANTI's" I do not generalize or at least I try not to and this time I definately did not.And YES a murderer is reduced to his act of taking the life of an INNOCENT human being. ABSOLUTELY!!!!! It doesn't matter the nice things he has done, it does not matter how much he loved his family or they loved him, or how truthful he is. What matters is that justice be done for that final act that makes him a murderer for the remainder of his days here on this earth.

Noosh, I still have it in me, I cried for precious Gaby who passed on thursday. And, even though I have not written to him in well over a year I still think about my other penpal almost daily. I wonder how he is doing, if he is eating right, I wonder how is children are holding up with him on death row, I also wonder how his victims family is holding up as well. Do you know they almost got deported from this country because when he killed one of those men their citizen application died with him? Their saving grace was that an act was passed that surviving victims affect by 9/11 were automatically exempt from deportation or something like that. I don't know how exactly to word it, I would have to look up the actual law that was passed and extended to his victims because it was indirectly related to 9/11. So yes Noosh, I still have humanity in me.
