Having read his book and knowing a bit of his story, I can answer your first question. He exchanged gunfire with someone during a drug deal. He was shot, too. The other man died.

He hasn't gotten out. He is communicating to us from death row.

Keith, do you believe you will be free someday? Have you gotten some indication from the courts, your writing, your advocacy work, and/or the prison system that your case is moving toward a more just outcome?

Not that this excuses his behavior, but the man...a drug addict...also shot him.

I was 22 years old with a college degree...and my coworkers made the job miserable. Many of them had no options besides the good state job they had. Not only did I know I had other options, but I was dying to go to grad school. I earned a Ph.D. and became a university professor.
