I believe life imprisonment is far worse than the death penalty.
There is a man out there who prosecuted me. He's been constantly calling different lawyers, telling them how afraid of me his is. He's afraid I'll come after him now that I'm out, because of all the horrible things he did to me. The furthest thing from my mind I would ever do is waste a day being vindictive.
Death row saved my life. It taught me everything is a luxury to be treasured.
So the chances of you being sentenced to Death Row in America is roughly the same as you winning the lottery.
I lived around the man who was the model for Buffalo Bill in the movie 'Silence of the Lambs.'
Here's the crazy thing: if I was guilty I would be entitled to job training, housing, medical treatment. But I have nothing. I was released with five dollars and 37 cents of my own money.
