Another new blog in town!

Folks: Last week we wrote about what at the time was a first: A blog dedicated specifically to a person on death row. That blog was launched by a woman named Ginny Simmons, who I think is with the Campaign to End the Death Penalty. It is dedicated to Vernon Evans, who is on Maryland's death row. You can see her blog and "meet Vernon Evans" by going here.

Now we have another blog dedicated to another death row inmate. This is dedicated to Robert Fratta, a wrongfully convicted person on Texas' death row. I do not know who launched this blog, although I see she is from New York State.

To see this new blog, go here.

Hi. I actually created Bobby Fratta's blog. Thank you so much for bringing more attention to it. As you know these are long and hard fights and the more attention you can get the better.

Hi Dave!

I actually work with a number of different anti death penalty groups. I first was involved at
Georgetown University where I co-created Death Penalty Awareness Week (which I’d love to get more groups to sign onto) and now
I’m on the National Steering Committee for Amnesty International’s Program to Abolish the Death Penalty. I’ve also worked with a number of other groups, such as the ACLU and SADP.
The blog however- is just an experiment and not connected to any one group in particular.

I live in DC but was in Texas over the weekend. I’m looking forward to learning about Bobby Fritta’s
case.

Ginny,

Please visit Bobby's blog and either post or email me and let me know of any ideas you might have. I am really at a loss here with other things to do. The single most important thing to do is to get more public attention to him and his case but other than that I simply don't know what to do and we are running out of time!

I am glad to see yet someone else fighting for the freedom of innocent people on death row. I for one believe in Robert's innocence. I have recently written to him and I plan on spending the rest of my time helping him prove his innocence. There is just too much corruption in our judicial system and it needs to stop. Just because a person has authority does not make them void from making mistakes. People screw up!!!!! I dont care who you are. Too many innocent people are being "murdered". It needs to stop. Although I do believe that some people do deserve to die for their crimes, it is not up to our courts to murder them, it should be Gods choice. The individuals that are putting that lethal injection into someones arm should also be on death row. It is MURDER. And the sad part is they enjoy it. What good is the death penalty? its not. Wouldn't they suffer more being locked up for their life. Death is freedom to the actual guilty people. Once dead they dont have to suffer through the everyday life of living on death row.

Anyone that has seen all the evidence against Bob Fratta and still thinks he is innocent is either insane or an idiot. The evidence is absolutely damning. He did it, and he got caught.

For those of you supporting this maniacal and manipulative man, shame on you! You should give thought to his children and let justice be served. His gun was used to kill her, he gave the shooter her schedule, he kept away long enough for it do be done. I feel sorry for and am anguished for what this woman had to endure and how he so severely degraded her and others. He is an animal that deserves to be put down. Justice was served only the delusional will not see that.

Perhaps BOB should not have killed the mother of his children.
Hmmm...he wouldn't be in this mess now would he?
BOB is a perverted individual who should FESS UP already! He should be ashamed. How BOB can live with himself anyways? Claimimg he is innocent! WOW...BOB! What a complete JOKE you are...BOB!

So little time on this planet as it is, to take someones life is just shameful. Look at what freedow and life has to offer. A morning walk in the fresh air, a bike ride along the shoreline. The satisfaction of an honest days work. The helping of a friend or a stranger in need. The pleasant voice and smile from someone who trully does care. Anyone that reads this, seriously stop wasteing your valuable time on people that don't care and have no values. Their are so many people that really need your help and thier not in jail or on death row. Forget these people, be a big brother or sister to a child in need. Feed the homeless or build homes for the homesless. Support a local charity or help out in your community. Be a good neighbor, friend or parent. Like I said your wasteing your time on these indiviuals there is much more inportant people that need your help. Look around you. I don't have very much as far as money goes. What I do have is the freedow to make choices on what and how i'm going to live.

I don't believe in the death penalty but this bastard had his wife murdered.And, I hope he spends the rest of his life in prison.They should put him in a cell with the other men. So they can give him all the kinky sex he wants.

Bob Fratta needs to die for murdering his wife...it was proven, he did it. Get over this crap about him being framed and being innocent, he's not, he's a murderer, plain and simple. The beauty is, he will be put to death and there is nothing you or Fratta is going to do to stop it... tick tick tick... that's the clock ticking off his time. :-D

The only problem with the death penalty is it takes to long to put into action! Bob Fratta should be only a bad memory by now, along with many other's on death row. I don't celebrate putting people to death but when you know the penalty, still choose to murder innocent people and are sentenced to death then so be it, but do it quickly not decades later.

I can't believe there are still people who think this megalomaniac sociopath is innocent. I was checking to see if he had been executed yet and found this blog. Sorry but this lethal injection is exactly what he needs.

I do not believe in the death penalty, but I believe this man is not innocent and should spend the rest of his life in prison. Everything I have read or seen from him indicates he is a self-centered, self-serving man who wanted his wife dead and saw to it that she was killed. Those who want to dedicate their lives to proclaiming his innocence should devote such energy to a worthy cause like human rights or the environment, not an egotistical murderer.
