I was asked today why I focus on the women on the row and not all prisoners on the row. (Hiya Skylark and Big Lin!) I suppose other people have wondered this too. I knew a very special woman who was killed on death row.
I was a juvenile delinquent. I have been in some pretty hairy situations in my younger years. I have seen devastating abuse, Ive seen evil, vicious acts. Ive been in jail. I have seen some horrific things happen to people just because they were prisoners. Women in particular.
Because of these experiences I can sometimes look at a woman who has committed a crime and understand where she came from. Why her mind was in that state and how she could become the creature that committed the crimes.
Even those kinds of crimes that your government can kill you for.
