…”They make you feel unimportant”
I’ve mentioned convicted murderer Robert Acuna twice recently:
Just to recap, Acuna, 19, has been on death row about six months for the 2003 killing of his Baytown neighbors, James Carroll, 75, and his wife, Joyce, 74. Acuna entered the Carrolls’ home on Nov. 12, 2003 and shot them in the head at close range. He was arrested five days later at a Dallas motel, where police found the Carrolls’ sedan, some of their jewelry and the murder weapon.
Of course Acuna claims he’s innocent.
Just a kid who made a mistake and deserves a second chance? Well, he’s already had his second chance:
Several months before the murders, Acuna was charged with aggravated assault, accused of pulling a knife on a76-year-old man in the parking lot of the San Jacinto Mall.
His attorneys urged jurors to consider his youth.
“Young folks make bad decisions,” attorney Robert Loper said. “You can’t look across the table and say he’s the kind of person who needs to be extinguished from the face of the Earth.”
Bad decisions!? When I think of “young folks making bad decisions”, I think about kids who start smoking, kids who cheat on their SATs, or kids who decide to become Aggies at Texas A&M. Executing your elderly neighbors goes a bit beyond my definition of a bad decision.
Robert Loper…you are a gullible idiot. And yes, I can look at Acuna and say he is precisely the kind of person who needs to be extinguished from the face of the Earth.
So, how does Acuna feel now that he’s been spared the needle he truly deserves? He’s bitching and moaning about being made to feel ‘unimportant’ on death row:
“They treat you like you are already dead,” added Robert Acuna…”They are as life-draining as they legally can be. They keep you out of society. There is no contact visitation, no watching the news on TV, no contact with other inmates. They don’t go by names, you have a number. They make you feel unimportant.”
Guess what, Acuna? You are unimportant. If the courts won’t allow us to legally execute you for your crimes, then I hope you die behind bars, so that you cannot ever inflict your evil upon us again.
Here’s Acuna’s Prison Pen Pal ad:
I am on Death Row in the State of Texas. I came here in August 2004. I am younger than the other inmates, I’m only 18. Being down here is an unusual, and sometimes difficult experience. I’m just looking for someone to keep my spirit up. I’m not worried about an age, just someone with a good heart. Someone who could relate to me. I am 6’2″, with a thin build, and I like to play Basketball. I enjoy listening to rap, rock, and trans. I liked to go out to eat, and the movies, but… in here. If I sound like a good person of interest. I would love a letter from you. If not, I hope you’re able to find another in need. I ‘ll talk to you later. Robert
You’re looking for someone who could relate to you? The people who could relate to you are already locked up in cells on either side of you (excluding your attorny, apparently).
So you want a letter? This was mine.
