Patrick Knight has a MySpace page which is run by one of his friends outside prison since they don’t have computers or internet access on death row. Knight is scheduled for execution in Texas on June 26 this year. You can write Governor Perry to protest this execution. Knight himself has come up with an idea for bringing attention to his execution. He is having a joke contest. From his MySpace:
I recently received a letter from Patrick Knight, a death row inmate in the Polunsky Unit in Texas. He has an execution date of June 26th 2007. In his own words “I’ll be enjoying my last days on this earth. I’m not asking for any pen pals but I am asking you to spread the word that I am holding a contest. I want people to send me their best jokes, to keep me and the others with dates, laughing!”
The best joke, which will be determined by the inmates on death watch and will be recited in Patrick’s “Last Statement”. Instead of “Dead Man Walking” he will be “Dead Man Laughing”.
