We would like to make it clear from the outset that Randy does NOT have access to the internet, or to a computer. This is NOT a fan site, or a forum in which to ask for legal or financial support, and all decisions and posts regarding this site are made solely by Randy's close friends.
The purpose of this site is to bring your attention to Randy's life, as we believe that he deserves another chance. The facts in Randy's case fully support our belief that he is NOT a killer, and should NOT be executed. In reading about his life as it is now - through his own personal writings - we hope you will come to the same conclusion and share his story with other people.
We realise that some of you will enter Randy's world cynically, and perhaps even condemningly...However, what you will read on this website is a true reflection of the person Randy is today. Reading through his journals and memoirs will show the reader that Randy is not only aware of the mistakes he has made in his life, but that he also takes responsibility for those mistakes - it would be very difficult to fake the type of growth we have seen blossom in Randy, over the last decade or so of his writings.
Those of you who sincerely wish to learn about Randy will see that he is both worthy and deserving of forgiveness...Forgiveness is a powerful tool in the healing process, and as members of a society where a wide range of political, religious, and spiritual beliefs co-exist, the ability to forgive is something we all have in common. It does not excuse the actions of the perpetrator, but it does allow us to end the cycle of pain and suffering. A justice system based on vengeance, and a society without forgiveness and reconciliation, is NOT the answer. Compassion and kindness exist on death row, and these men and women are capable of redemption...No one is ever truly "lost."
We ultimately hope that you will leave this site with a clearer understanding of the death penalty and how it's applied, as we believe it has no place in a civilised society. In our News section, we endeavour to keep you up to date with news relating to the death penalty in Texas, and the Texas Department of Corrections. We have also provided a list of external links to various organisations with whom you can get involved, and lend your support.
Are any of us exactly the same person we were 20 years ago? We ask that you please keep this question in your mind when you enter this site.
We thank you for taking the time to read about Randy, and his life.

On 8th July, 2019, we had news that an execution date of 10th October has been scheduled for Randy. This news comes with the knowledge that there are pending and unresolved issues in the Courts that Randy's lawyers are working very hard to bring to fruition. We have every reason to hope that his date will be stayed, and that Randy will receive the due process he deserves, in accordance with his Constitutional rights. Randy has a team of excellent and dedicated lawyers who are working very hard to save him, and we are behind them in everything they do.
Details of the misconduct of Judge Vickers Cunningham was filed in Randy's Petition for Habeus Corpus, on 17th May, 2019. You can read that filing here:
The evidence contained in this filing supports the fact that Randy should be given a new trial. Since this filing was made the state of Texas has tried to dismiss the misconduct and bigotry of Judge Cunningham, and have hastily pursued this execution date for Randy even with the ongoing unresolved issues.
Recently, the Anti Defamation League filed a brief in Randy's case which provides a history of anti-Semitism, and explains why terminology such as "the f*****' Jew" and "g*******d k**e" are so offensive and cannot be tolerated in any society, least of all in a court of law. You can read their report here:
We will post further news as and when we receive it, and in the meantime, Randy, and all of his friends and supporters would like to thank everyone for their kindness, prayers, and support...It means a lot to all of us.
