Meet Vernon: A Death Row Inmate's Blog from Behind Bars

Maryland death row inmate Vernon Lee Evans, Jr. has been running a blog, Meet Vernon, since March 2005.  Although Evans doesn't have internet access, an anti-death penalty activist who established the blog, forwards Evans the questions, to which he responds with answers and advice.  The blog was temporarily closed in June 2005 to avoid harming Evans' legal prospects. But now with his execution date set for the week of February 6, 2006, he is making efforts to have responses posted to a backlog of comments and questions.  Blogs from behind bars are the latest and one of the most novel strategies anti-death penalty activists are using to humanize death row inmates.  Story from the Washington Post. . .

Vernon,
Call on the name of the Lord Jesus the Christ and be saved. Ask Him to forgive you of any wrong doings and for Him to come into your heart and save you. Ask the Father to receive the Holy Spirit. God bless you in the name of Jesus, Vernon. I'm praying for you.

I hope you burn in hell. You were and still are a gutless punk. Hopefully you will die in prison and get your just punishment.
