I am Donald DeBose. I spend a lot of time reading
and writing. I've been on death row for about 4 years now and
have a long time to go. I'm a 26 year old African American from
Los Angeles, California.
I've been convicted of murder/robbery, attempt murder/robbery and arson. I was convicted on circumstantial evidence with the assistance of police corruption.
1. I was not identified in my live line up.
2. I was at work when the crime took place.
3. No fingerprints of mine were found.
4. The police threatened my witness to take her baby and lock her up for an outstanding warrant if she did not testify against me.
5. The jailhouse informant was facing 3 strikes that was impeached placing himself at the scene of the crime.
So I was cheated out of life for something I had nothing to do with. Hopefully in due time the truth will surface and give me my freedom.
Greetings! Hopefully this notation brings some type of
joy to one's day,upon allowing yourself to keep an open mind while
taking this time out to enter my world.
Before,I go any farther allow me to properly introduce myself and give a brief summary of my characteristics. My name is, Donald, I'm 6'1” tall, 210 pounds (muscular built) light brown complected, out of , Los Angeles, with a smile that sparkles any room. In my spare time outside of studying law, politics and world history, I enjoy writing in my novel, I'm composing, reading and drawing. Being that I'm outgoing, my enjoyment comes by placing a smile on the next person face, upon sharing life experiences, from all walks of life.
Throughout my personal journey and struggle,many bricks of my pyramid has fallen but realization struck that brought me to the conclusion that it was important to start with self, to understand self which has given me a broad look on life. Therefore my intentions now is to remain mentality and spiritually balanced as this walk of mine continues. In the mean-time, hopefully along the way, I be given opportunity to embrace a friendship with a sophisticated woman that understands herself be receptive and willing to share knowledge, upon keeping a positive and productive view on life, through the good and bad times.
On a basis, I'm constantly faced with different obsticles but through strive and determination the negative is off-setted by the positive. This enables me to remain grounded and reach out in hope to connect with someone on my level in the most define way. With everything said and honesty, trustworthy and understanding lies within your meaning of a friend, feel free to write and allow something beautiful to blossom.
