The state didn't feel he deserved to die for that death, probably because they considered the context. He pled guilty and took his punishment for that. He's not crying victim for that...

His book, Condemned, is available on Amazon. It's really an important story and gives you a sense of his journey. Highly recommend!

Do you believe prisons are really just an economic system built to profit the few in power? Were you able to afford your own defense, or did you have to rely on public defenders? If you had money, would you be on death row? Lastly, is there any way we could give to a fund to help you fight for your freedom?

Race has everything to do with poverty, which is largely tied to the kinds of crimes people commit against other poor people. He explained that the crime which led him to prison happened as a result of his involvement in drugs in an impoverished community where this was almost expected of him. He has taken responsibility for that. But people should not be accused of just anything only because they already had made a mistake. Due process is still our Constitutional right under the law. So he did not "kill people" as you say.
