Ronald Chambers, inmate # 000539, is still living on Death Row. Now, if nothing else, this is the Cruel & Unusual Punishment that is prohibited in the US Constitution. 31 years on Death Row? This is living in Hell. It is both Cruel and Unusual. 31 years on Death Row? He should have been dead a long time ago if we were going to put him to death. His lawyers have appealed and appealed and appealed until all we have is a shell of a man behind bars. The State of Texas (which is the Death Penalty Capitol of the Nation) will execute him no doubt about that but 31 years is horrible.
He is so out of touch with the rest of the world. When asked what he would do if he had one day of freedom before he is executed, he replied that he would go to the Midway of the State Fair of Texas in his hometown of Dallas and ride The Swiss Skyride. Now that is sad! This is what a child would say not a 52 year old man.
If you would like to read the article yourselves (http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/news/16459598.htm)
What do you think, is this really the Death Penalty? ( I don't no if he is still waiting to die the article was written in 2007)
