my name is Tony Dixon. I am 22 years old. I was born in Houston and
spent all of my life there. My mother has supported me since my incarceration.
I have a brother and one sister, who both love me. My father passed away
before I was born.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I enjoy basketball and football
(the American vesion). I love to listen to music, when I have
the chance. Horseback riding was something I loved to do.
I enjoy watching movies very much. I love to get letters as well.
My reading and writing skills are not very good. But I promise to respond
to any and every letter. I am interested in all male and female pen
pals. I have no problem with age. Being here, letters bring me so much
joy. Making friends is something I look forward to doing. I love pets
also. I hope this brief description of myself spark an interest in
I have been incarcerated since the age of 17. At the age of 18, I was
sentenced to death. I will answer any questions that I can.. My case is
on appeal and at the moment I can not go into full details as to the who,
when, where and how, I am here. I know there will be questions and I want
to answer them. To become a friend, I feel people must be honest with one
another. However long I have to stay here, I hope to have a friend
I can write.
You can ask anything you want. Please forgive me when I speak of the
American justice system. I may sound rude. As long as I sit here, I can't
say the justice system is fair to all people. It is hard to understand
the system, until you end up on the wrong side of the law.
I have learned so much. I came to death row in 1995. I have seen for
myself how prisoners are really treated. This is not T.V.. This is real
life. There are no golf courses here, fun in the sun. There is no swimming
pool. There was a time we were allowed out of our cell for 3 hours a day.
(Mon thru Fri) now it is only 2 hours a day. What is punishment? To stay
in a cell 22 hours a day and 24 hours a day on the weekend? Do you treat
your pets this way? There is so much I would love to tell. Also, there
is so much I would love to learn. I am open to every subject. No one can
offend me. As I write this letter, a man was put to death last night and
another man will be put to death tonight. My last question to you is: Will
the world be a better place after he is dead? I hope the world opens their
