Randy wishes it to be known that his case, at present, is ENTIRELY focused on his Constitutional right to a fair and unbiased trial.

Thank you.

Dear Visitor....

Welcome to our website where we aim to share Randy's life, work, goals, and ambitions, as well as providing information on the death penalty and how it's applied in Texas. We would like to point out that this not a 'fan site' and all posts are made by Randy's girlfriend and close friends. We regularly receive messages of support, and would like to thank everyone for their help and kindness.

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. We also post on Randy's work under our Achievements tab.

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. Halprin
