Greetings to all
My name is Clinton Lee Young, known by the State of Texas as #999447. I was “wrongfully” forced into the hands of the Polunsky Unit in April of 2003. Since arriving I have reached my 20th birthday. By the way Texas conducts its appeals, I am hoping to at least see 25. When I arrived I weighed 185 pounds, but after barely 5 weeks of eating state food I dwindled to 168. TDCJ says it feeds less, due to budget problems, but is seeking millions to build more dungeons of psychological aggression, otherwise known as administrative segregation. Which is the 6 foot by 9 foot cage that I live in. The program I, as well as the other death row inmates, live under is designed to psychologically oppress us by housing us in a cage and letting us have recreation is a bigger cage, but without human contact. They make us have visits with our OWN family, behind thick glass which further emotionally unbalances us. The only things that helps us stay mentally sane is faith, hope and mail. Which is one of the reasons I am reaching out through the Lamp of Hope Project, so that I can receive a penpal to help me endure this constant struggle. I am seeking someone in their 20s and up, because I feel we would be on the same maturity level and could have a more meaningful friendship. But age, race or gender do not matter. I am an open minded person that enjoys writing, reading subjects on history, fables, folk law, mythology, science and other beautiful subjects. I also enjoy the outdoors, some sports, people, anything that provides a laugh and life in general. (I have included a photo mf myself and my baby sister to put a face wit ha name. I am also enclosing two photos of me from a media visit here on Death Row as well as one of me in the court room, in full shackles, which was part of the states propaganda to try to make me appear dangerous and to suppress me).
Now if you’re wondering how I was “wrongfully” placed in the hands of the Polusky Unit, it is because I was “wrongfully” convicted on the states “theory”. I was convicted due to co-defendents that were seeking favor from the state. By their words I am a clod blooded killer. However though, by the unbiased scientific reports that I have, which were not admitted into evidence due to mistakes by my lawyer, I am innocent. I never shot anyone. All the evidence points to those who are guilty, but unfortunately my lawyer did not properly present this at my trial, and due to this mistake I am paying dearly. There are other variables that show my innocence, other than the scientific evidence. I have my legal file with me, so I can provide copies. I am seeking mot only a penpal, but also any group, person, lawyer, student, university &/or etc that will take the time and review my case and help me fight and prove my innocence. Before it is too late and I am wrongfully executed for a crime that others committed, that I did not know if or intend to happen. I just turned 18 when the offence occurred and I was sentenced to die by lethal injection at 19 (I received my Death Sentence in George Bush’s home town). Those who only want to correspond are greatly appreciated, just as those who wish to provide legal assistance.
I remain your truly
