State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

Pen Pal requests from Death Row Texas

Melvin White was executed by the state of Texas - Nov. 3, 2005 

Melvin W. White 


Hi, my name is Melvin White. I wish to find some penpals to ease the loneliness and share my thoughts with. I am a simple cowboy type person who loves to BBQ, watch movies, play games, fish and camp out! I love drag races, monster trucks + truck and tractor pulls! I have/had a race car myself that I completely rebuilt. I am interested in male or female writers.

Thank you

Hallo, mein Name ist Melvin White. Ich wünsche mir einen Brieffreund, um die Einsamkeit erträglicher zu machen und meine Gedanken mit jemandem zu teilen. Ich bin ein einfacher Cowboy-Typ, der es liebt, ein Bar B.Q. zu machen, Filme zu sehen, Spiele spielen, draußen fischen und campen! Ich liebe Wettrennen, Monster Trucks + Traktoren sowie Lkws ziehen! Ich hatte selbst ein Rennauto, das ich komplett umgebaut habe. Ich habe Interesse an männlichen sowie weiblichen Schreibern.

Vielen Dank
