We are currently making some changes to our website and hope you will bear with us as we work our way through things. We would also like to sincerely thank everyone who has sent messages of support to us recently.
Those of you who have followed Randy and ourselves over the years (particularly since he was issued an execution date of 10th October, which was thankfully stayed on 4th October) will already be fully aware of where Randy's case stands at present. For those visiting the site for the first time, please take a moment to read up on Randy's case in our Randy's Case tab.
Under our Welcome tab, you will find information on who we are, a slideshow of pictures from Randy's chilldhood, and a list of external links to various organisations with whom you can get involved in the fight against the death penalty.
You will also find Randy's original writings under Journals, Memoirs, and Poems/Lyrics. We are working with Randy on a number of other writing projects, and hope you will continue to visit the website for all updates etc.
As well as sharing Randy's life and his writings, our intention is for you to leave this site with a clearer understanding of the death penalty and how it's applied. This website contains a wealth of information on death row, and our Life On Death Row tab contains a picture tour, a description of the inhumane conditions on the Unit, and some writings from other death row inmates.
We realise that many of our visitors will come to this website cynically, or perhaps condemingly, but before you leave, please ask yourself this question: Are any of us exactly the same person we were 20 years ago?
We thank you for taking the time to read about Randy, and his life.
The Friends of Randy E. Haprin
