It seems whenever you read about death row inmates, you only get one side of the story, depending on whether the article is pro or anti death penalty. You could hear about the horrible life of spending all day every day in solitary confinement in a 9×6 cell, watching your fellow inmates one by one disappear around you as they are put to death. Or you could hear the horrifying tale of a mother’s grief, a wife without a husband, a son growing up without a father.
But rarely do you hear both stories at once. There’s an excellent article from Seattle PI that does just that, and it is absolutely a must read.
