The Pressures of Death Row

From Fort Wayne.com/AP:
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. - A convicted murderer who was denied his wish to be executed left a suicide note in which he wrote of the pain of watching others on death row agonize over their fates.

Charles E. Roche Jr., 42, of Hammond was found dead in his Indiana State Prison cell early Tuesday hanging from a bed sheet braided into a rope and tied around his neck, the Indiana Department of Correction said.

"I'm tired of getting close to these guys in here and then watch them slowly crack as they near their fate," said the note released Tuesday by Roche's attorney. "That's worse (than) a death sentence."

Roche said he "could not take the head games of prison officials any more. They have begun a new policy which now invades the most basic privacy right we had which was being able to send out our mail sealed. Now all our personal letters must be mailed out open for staff to go through."
I've got news for the now deceased Mr. Roche. When you are in prison you have forfeited your rights. That means the prison officials can look up your ass if they want to, not to mention read your mail. As Tammy Bruce said: "...it shouldn't surprise anyone that the malignant narcissists in prison and on death row still only obsess about themselves."
