the way you do those things you do…

in our position as staff we occasionally wonder if in fact our analysis of the issue and political climate is accurately reflected in our strategy and the configuration of our organization, that is, will we be successful???

in fact, one had better occasionally conduct such an inventory and adjust course as necessary based on new developments…

still, one wonders…and thirsts for feedback regarding this meditation…

recently a group was asked to complete an organizational analysis of tcask … below is my favorite…

“I believe that TCASK is bound for success and that one day Tennessee and the rest of the country will abolish the death penalty. The group is so well run, with such smart, motivated, and politically wise people that TCASK will eventually succeed in its efforts, and it will be a good thing when it does. The group has almost everything going for it including the best argument for change that is almost impossible to argue against, and will do nothing but good things in the future.”

granted, it’s not an “objective” evaluation but never underestimate the utility of occasionally getting positive feedback…it does wonders for sustaining one’s confidence and results, i think, in better leadership…

now that’s what i’m talkin’ about…

Fairly, there are numerous aspects you would like to think about medications. All discount medicaments save money, but few online drugstores offer better deals than other online drugstores. There isn’t anything you can’t order online anymore. Remedies like Deltasone ordinarily is used to treat diseases such as eye problems. Glucocorticoids naturally occurring steroids, which are easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. There are varied drugs for every conditions. Cialis is a remedy prescribed to treat many illnesses. What do you already know about long term side effects of cialis? What consumers talk about how long does it take for cialis to take effect? A general sexual complaint among men is the erectile disfunction. Sexual problems mostly signal deeper problems: low libido or erectile disfunction can be the symptom a strong health problem such as core trouble. Albeit the erectile malfunction itself isn’t necessarily dangerous, erectile disfunction is sometimes one of the early warning symptoms of other underlying health conditions that can be so dangerous. Unfortunately nearly all over-the-counter medicines have sometimes dangerous aftereffects, from muscle aches to death. If you buy any erectile dysfunction medicaments like Cialis, check with a physician that they are sure to take with your other drugs. Do not take unwanted medications.

some days you eat the bear…

and some days the bear eats you … it’s a nice album by ian matthews and it’s a true as it gets metaphor for low-budget, single-issue organizing…

damn bear has been eatin’ on my carcass for bout near a week now…

ya see it’s microsoft – again … i left work one day and our e-mail program was sleek and powerful, yeah, like a bear … and the next day i come in and booooom! … the windows address book is corrupted and won’t open…

now i’m a computer idiot so i spent 2 days on the internet trying to fix it myself (okay, fine, i’m just an idiot) … no good …

finally yesterday i get someone competent in here and, well, at least we’ve recovered the data … only one problem, we recovered 10,000 records but i only have about 2000 e-mail addresses!!!

- seems that you can recover addresses you deleted 4 years ago … and we have ….

so rather than organizing, i’m plodding through 10,000 e-mail addresses trying to figure our which ones to keep and which ones to, um, “delete,” …

but i’m still hopeful that one of you kind readers will be able to restore my windows address book to its original glory — please???

so call me, e-mail me, heck – write me a letter … i’m not going anywhere anytime soon…

it ain’t american i tell ya…test the dna

thing is we don’t do much executin’ here in tennessee, but we got us one scheduled for may 17th – sedley alley …

here’s the deal, according to the state’s documentation it doesn’t appear that sedley alley could have killed suzanne collins, i said appears, that is, there’s very reasonable doubt…

but there’s dna evidence available that could clear it up – exclude or point the finger at sedley alley — but it’s never been tested and the state won’t allow it to be tested!!!

it ain’t right i tell ya and it ain’t american … here, you read about it and you be the judge…

test the dna and remove the doubt

a “tale” of two lotteries…

after a protracted campaign the tennessee legislature passed a bill in 2003 authorizing a lottery corporation to run what is a legal numbers racket for the state … this legalized gambling as a method to raise scholarships funds to encourage tennessee’s high school graduates to stay in state to attend college…

there is lots that could be said socio-politically regarding this phenomenon but this is not the lottery i find most interesting … nope, it’s the lottery that precedes each execution date set by the tennessee supreme court … a lottery run by the tennessee department of corrections to select media representatives to witness an upcoming execution…

sedley alley currently faces an execution date on may 17th…

now i can understand people buying tickets for powerball, i mean while there are stories of people who have been ruined by winning a big lottery payoff most people would like the opportunity to see how they handle such a burden as becoming an instant multi-millionaire — i mean i could fund a lot of topflight state death penalty abolition campaigns with $150 million doncha’ know…

but who puts their name in a drawing to watch a homicide, to see someone poisoned to death in a highly ritualized “ceremony”, to report to the general public how both sets of victim’s families (murder victim and the executed) react to a theatrical event that makes the premeditated taking of a human life seem so banal???

now i know a reporter, anchor who witnessed robert coe’s execution in april 2000 … scott couch was a weekend anchor and reporter at newschannel5 for years and covered the political beat … but scott was, based on the conversation i had with him about the event, disturbed by the
memory of what he witnessed … i did not know scott beyond our cordial professional relationship but i could tell that he did not care to cover the death penalty anymore…

its as if we seem content to spread the collateral damage of murder to as many people as possible …. from the murder victim’s family members, to the family of the person convicted of the murder, to the people who staff death row and get to know the condemned as a human being, to reporters who reduce the spectacle to a digestible mcmoment on local news broadcasts …

given the options i’ll buy a powerball ticket – at least if i win i’m supporting the education of someone who may one day help turn around this culture of revenge and retribution that we have so masterfully constructed for ourselves…

Going Baptist

I’ve written a couple times about our frame for discussing the death penalty with communities of faith, and just since the new year I’ve spoken at over 20 different faith communities using basically the frame of innocence, protection of society, Chirst’s concern for the poor, and the denomination’s own statement against capital punishment. But last night was something special for me, because it was my first talk at a Baptist church since arriving here in Tennessee nine months ago (is that all? It feels like so long ago).


You see, the Baptists are one of the few Christian denominations that do not oppose the death penalty and, in fact, support it. Though, to be sure, many Baptists do oppose the death penalty. Reverend Will Campbell (one of the most well known Baptists in the country) is outspoken in his condemnation of executions and, in fact, has called the Southern Baptist Convention hypocrites for their support. So the general message that, Christians who follow Christ’s message of love and forgiveness, is not quite as effective, so how do we connect?

Well, I had a chance to explore this question in a very practical sense last night. You see, sometimes talking about capital punishment, there is a contradiction in Christian theology, in that we worship a God of mercy but also a God of justice, and sometimes, odd as it seems, we end up pitting these Gods against eachother when we debate capital punishment. But the good news is that I think that we can bridge this gap and use it to our advantage and here’s how.

1.) Recognize that there is this conflict – our respect for life may call us to respond to the taking of life by taking another, otherwise we de-value the first life.

2.) Acknowledge the Bible’s call for justice.

3.) Test the death penalty against the justice paradigm. Would a just God support a system that sentences innocents to death? Only executes the poor? Targets the mentally ill?

4.) Posit that, in the case of our current capital punishment system, there really is no conflict, the paradigms of both mercy and justice call us to call a time out on this system and see if it can be fixed.

And that’s what I did last night, and, would ya believe it, it actually went pretty well. I’m not saying that I’ve hit the magic formula (I’ll need some more field testing), and it may not get us past moratorium, but I think at least we’ve got a quick sketch for our journey through the buckle of the Bible belt.

Got ‘er Done!

While the majority of folks in the state probably weren’t aware of it, there has been a serious threat to the abolitionist cause lurking in the general assembly this year. The threat: House Bill 2924 which expands the use of the death penalty. This bill would raise the rape of a child (which is already a class A felony with a possible sentence of life without parole) to a capital offense. That’s right, more people to execute.

Now obviously, this is a bad bill to have to fight, for us or for a legislator. I mean no one wants to be seen as defending child rapists, and I’ll admit it, the thought of such a crime turns my stomach. But I also know that the death penalty remains an immoral public policy, that the state should not ever take the life of one of its citizens no matter what the crime. I know that the death penalty is prone to error (and that in the case of child rape, a trial might be even more emotional) and that it targets the poor, racial minorities, and the mentally ill. And I know expanding such a system is unconscionable. In a later post we should all discuss one of the dangers of having a death penalty even if it isn’t used, i.e. the pressure to use it and expand it.


But I thought that this bill also allowed us to challenge two very important problems focused around myths about the death penalty. The problems: the retributive rather than restorative focus and the costs associated with capital punishment.

And fortunately, on at least the second point, I had the state to back me up this time. You see, any time a bill is introduced, a fiscal note is attached – basically saying what the bill will cost the state if it’s enacted. The fiscal note for HB2924 revealed that the bill would cost Tennessee around $15,000,000.00! It also revealed that only an estimated 3 people a year would receive the death penalty under this statute. And that they would wait on death row at least 20 years before such a sentence was carried out. And this isn’t me saying all this remember; this is the state’s own fiscal board.

And that brings us to problem and myth number one: the focus on hurting the offender instead of healing the victim. Apparently, the authors and supporters of this bill, with 15 million dollars at their disposal, could think of no better way to help children victimized by rape than to execute three people a year, probably not beginning the actual execution process for 20 years! Imagine what $15 million could provide in terms of counseling, support, and compensation for victimized children. But no! the death penalty is not about victims, it’s about punishment.

And that is exactly the message that we brought to the judiciary committee. We contacted some constituents in the members’ districts and asked them to write letters and contact their representatives to carry exactly that message and they responded with flying colors! I spent a good amount of time up on the hill in the last few weeks and yesterday, all our hard work was rewarded. House Bill 2924 failed yesterday because it couldn’t get a seconded on the motion to move it! They couldn’t even find 2 members of the 11 member committee to attempt to move it! Because, having heard from their constituents, the representatives realized that there were better ways to spend our money than on this failed public policy! Congratulations to everyone who participated. You got ‘er done!

reflection on the taking of life in a minor chord…

it struck me square between the eyes last friday how disturbing it must be to witness, literally, someone you love being executed…

i took my blind, deaf, and disoriented 16 year old eskimo spitz to be euthanized … i cried uncontrollably and in the form of HUGE alligator tears in a way that i hadn’t since i “put down” my 13 year old german shepherd on july 8, 2000 …

it hurt so bad, particularly when sinbad yelped, three times, in all that was left of his capacity to talk/bark near the end … they botched the “procedure” and as the poison coursed through his heart and lungs he was stricken in agony – i know his sounds and clearly the little guy, as he lay there in my arms, was hurting …

when it was finally over and his tongue hung lifelessly on the cold, steel tabletop, i breathed a sigh of relief, but as of this meditation i continue to be racked by the pain he suffered in those final moments …

i am in NO WAY comparing my loss to that of someone who loses a father, mother, son, daughter, or other close kin to homicide at the hands of the state, but being empathetic as a human i was deeply struck by how profound such a loss might be

and i can truly say with compassion, for i do know too many people personally who have lost a treasured loved one to murder at the hands of an individual (or group of individuals), that the grief of their tragedy can only be similarly deep and profound …

who knows what people feel when we execute them — when the sodium thiopental is injected (is it enough??? are they anesthetized??? don’t even professionals in hospital surgery rooms make mistakes???); and the pancuronium bromide courses through the veins (if they’re muscularly paralyzed how would we ever know that they may not be anesthetized???); and finally as the potassium chloride stops the heart (would they yelp in surprise, fear, and pain as little sinbad did three times last friday) …

is lethal injection painful??? – prolly’…

is execution by any method cruel and inhumane??? – absolutely …

we can’t bring back murder victims…
we can’t legislate closure for victim’s families…
let’s prevent those killings we know are scheduled to take place…
let’s not create more victims as a matter of public policy…
enough pre-meditated, policy-based violence…
join me and let’s abolish this damned thing…

in loving memory of sinbad who came to me at age 12, one day short of death at the humane association where he had been dropped 4 months earlier by his previous “owners,” and spent four more pretty damn good years in a loving house with 5 or 6 other doggies…

Easter Reflection

I hope that it is clear to everyone that TCASK is not a religious organization, and that we have a lot of members who are not “religious” and certainly not Christian. Still, I’m here as a Jesuit Volunteer, and I know that a large part of the abolition movement is motivated by a religious (and often Christian) faith tradition, and Easter provides a great time to reflect on why that is.

Many people forget that during the Easter season, and on Good Friday in particular, we are remembering an execution. Christ was executed for challenging the ruling class in his society. Christ was poor, with little connection to the wealthy and powerful. He was from an oppressed ethnicity (in the Roman empire), so in a lot of ways, very few things have changed in the pattern of executions over the last 2,000 years.

But I think that the Easter season lets us look beyond all of this to what is, for many people, the core belief and understanding that leads to abolition. Christ’s execution reminds us of the fact that all people, even criminals, are people. Christian traditions across the country fall into the “pro-life” camp. This pro-life belief stems from an understanding that all human life is endowed with an inviolable dignity, a touch of Godliness. It is understanding that all human life is sacred to God, so sacred that Christ was sent to die so the rest of us, all sinners, could live, that leads so many Christians and Christian denominations to oppose the use of the death penalty.


I spent some of my Easter weekend re-reading Sister Helen Prejean’s book Death of Innocents, a terrific read that everyone should peruse if they haven’t already. In it, Prejean speaks of two men that she accompanied to their deaths who were, in her belief and to basic common sense judgment, innocent. But she also dwells on the Catholic church’s slow progress (for which she deserves much of the credit) to its current stance calling for outright abolition.

Former Pope John Paul II finally moved the Catholic position to full abolition calling on all Catholics to be “unconditionally pro-life” a view which excludes the taking of human life, even the life of those guilty of horrible crimes. Such an act cannot be reconciled with the will of a loving God.

the journey of hope rides again…

it could be said that the incubation of the modern anti-death penalty movement in our state occurred during the tennessee journey of hopefrom violence to healing in 1999 …

what is the journey???

according to their web site … the journey of hope…from violence to healing is an organization that is led by murder victim family members that conducts public education speaking tours and addresses alternatives to the death penalty…

journey “storytellers” come from all walks of life and represent the full spectrum and diversity of faith, color and economic situation…they are real people who know first hand the aftermath of the insanity and horror of murder…they recount their tragedies and their struggles to heal as a way of opening dialogue on the death penalty in schools, colleges, churches and other venues…

in 1999 they spent 17 days criss-crossing tennessee speaking to thousands about their particular message that forgiveness is about the victim’s family members – not perpetrators – and it leads to healing…

it is through the journey that i met one of my favorite people-characters in the world, george white … i treasure seeing george at ncadp conferences and often share things in my presentations that george has unselfishly shared with all of us …

that 1999 journey included a concert at the ryman organized by steve earle and included, jackson browne, emmylou harris, the indigo girls, and dixie chick natalie maines …

this year’s journey will tour virginia from october 13-29 and we hope will spend a couple of days in eastern tennessee … sister helen prejean will once again join the journey for a few days oct. 21,22 and leave the 23rd…

the lil’ jesuit dude is being encouraged to spend at least a week traveling with the journey which will lead into the 2006 ncadp conference in virginia (at a site outside of washington dc to be named shortly)…

tcask has a 10 minute video of 1999 tennessee journey footage that is available for use in presentations and discussions … drop us a line at tcask@tcask.org or call us at 615-463-0070 …

We wouldn’t want to be Dull Boys now, would we?

I won’t deny that, if you read us regularly, you probably get the impression that being an abolitionist organizer is a lot of work. Ok, I admit it, it is. Randy and I probably work about 70 hours a week on average. I personally aim to take a day off every two weeks. But we have fun too.

Case in point: Yesterday I was on the road fairly early heading off, once again, to Bethel College, to do presentations to 3 classes as well as a meeting or two and a conference call squeezed in. Now I gave three hour-long talks, at 10:00, 1:00, and 2:00. But after getting out of the 2:00 talk and a long and very rewarding discussion about what constitutes healing and forgiveness with a few students, I had to get right back on the road, but not before I went on a 4-D extravaganza. See Bethel had a ride set up where your wore funny 3-D glasses sat on a platform that rocked and were sprayed with water all while the screen in front of you gave the illusion of movement.

OK, it may sound cheesy, but it was fun and a great way to spend five minutes to decompress after angry listeners and hostile audiences, where it took me a while to win over some (and certainly not all) of the participants, by talking about who actually ends up on death row (i.e. the poor, racial minorities, and the mentally ill). So:

Take a few minutes and have some fun;
It’ll help you to git ‘er done.

All work and no play, remember.
