Friends,


We are sad to announce that the State of Alabama took the life of Tommy Arthur tonight at Holman Prison. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family members, friends and his valiant attorneys.

In January of 2016 someone I knew was murdered by the state of Alabama. His name was Chris Brooks and he was in my Book Club. We didn’t talk much about life, we talked about books.

Derrick Mason Remembered by Randy Lewis


Derrick Mason was a breakfast runner when I arrived on death row back in 2007….We cliqued real well, we instantly became friends. We talked and laughed about any and everything. I had no family support, but every time Derrick caught store he purchased me something. He allotted me a few of his work days so that I would be able to have extra food to eat. Derrick became my first brother here on Life Row.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 4.19.17

While we and the rest of the world watching the unfolding horror in Arkansas, hoping that our friends have used their voices to speak out, we have also been keeping our focus on Alabama. As you know we have 2 upcoming executions and we also have a new Governor. While we have yet to find out about Governor Ivey’s stand on clemency we firmly believe that she has to be more evolved than her predecessor who stated that he would never grant clemency.
