Texas Death Row prisoner Robert Pruett has been given an execution date for October 12, 2017

June 26, 2017

This morning I found myself listening to the noontime news broadcast from the Texas State Network News when I heard the report that Rupert Pruett has been given another execution date for October 12, 2017.

Once again a friend of mine has been given an execution date and moved to death watch where those who have active execution dates are kept under 24-hour surveillance via CCTV camera in their cells. This time when I heard the awful news I had flashbacks to my time on deathwatch. You see Robert Pruett was also on death watch with me when I was housed there living under the evil threat of an execution date.

There is something about going through such an experience with another human being. A bond is forged because we made it through that living hell alive. It might seem nice and civil and humane to the outside viewer, seeing a man on Texas death row with an execution date. This is not a third world country where they are physically torturing us before them devils take our lives. They even begin to treat the Texas Death Row prisoner like a human being at the end, but it’s still a living hell.

It is psychological torture not only for the condemned prisoner but for all the family and friends who care for him too. When a person finds himself on death row it’s  not just him living with a death sentence, everyone who cares for him lives with it too.

I lived through that with Robert Pruett. And I know this is not his first time having an execution date. It’s his fourth or fifth time I believe. Try to wrap your mind around that. It took me a year to get over the trauma I experienced during my five months on death watch. How do you get over four or five more extended stays on death watch? I have no idea.

If nothing else my brother Robert Pruett know how it goes and what to do while on death watch most importantly he knows the rule – never let them devils see you sweat! I know he will make sure however this trip through living hell ends to never let them see him sweat. Stay strong brother.

Peace Hope & Freedom!

  1. I know Robert pruett is innocent as well. This whole situation that you guy’s are stuck in really stinks. Have your lawyer file a motion to fully review your case. Make sure that any existing DNA on any and all possible weapons and or clothing is fully tested and that your lawyer does plenty of digging into the defense attorney’s witnesses reguarding their personal backgrounds. Ya never know what’s under a rock until ya flip it over.
