BLOGS in English on the death penalty:
The blog “Minutes Before Six” regularly publishes essays, poems and artwork by prisoners – not all, but most are death row inmates in the USA. What began in 2007 with one death row inmate in Texas now includes writers in the triple digits, not only in Texas, but also in California, Florida, Virginia, and Washington.
This blog was created with the intention of giving readers a look behind the walls and bars of the U.S. prison system. Written from an insider’s perspective, the posts offer descriptions of the situation and the groups of people involved that can hardly be found elsewhere. (Also available in German.)
The blog of the “Connect Death Row” project talks about life on death row in the USA and gives an insight into the world of those who have to live there. Inmates, their family members and pen pals, as well as relatives of victims have their say and share their experiences in interviews and stories.
