which runs a website against the death penalty. Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of the DP, and think that it should be at the minimum, restricted to federal crimes, but that's neither here nor there re: this discussion. This group, which I think is largely lawyers, actually hosts webpages for people on death row in the US. The prisoners cannot access the website to make changes; the group does that.
Sometime during the David Westerfield trial for the murder of Danielle Van Dam, I heard about the webpage. They actually have a website where Richard Allen Davis, the guy convicted of killing Polly Klass, which then turned her father into a crusader for abused/kidnapped kids, has writings and artwork. It is truly nauseating, altho they at least don't afford them the opportunity to email family members of the victims.Death Row Prisoners
They ask people to send gifts to these inmates etc. Even if one were to assume tha half of the time, these convicts were innocent but were convicted (I don't assume that; I'm suggesting it as an extreme) and even if one is firmly against the death penalty, why someone would be so solicitous towards these people floors me.It is almost as if their being sentenced to the death penalty somehow makes them worthy of better consideration. I did not explore the site in detail, but at least in the few of the pages that I looked at, there is no debate about guilt or innocence.
