"Prison Song" by System of a Down

System of a Down pretty much always goes hard. Right now, I am listening to their "Prison Song". The lyrics are essentially an indictment of the prison industrial complex. Righteous and powerful. In listening to this, I am reminded that the prison industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Billions upon billions upon billions of dollars - taxpayer money - is spent on the criminal justice system every year. Mostly to do nothing more than lock people up in an environment that promotes and enhances negative behavior patterns and recidivism. This is bad for society as a whole. Instead of spending billions of dollars on promoting and carrying out outdated, illogical and nonsensical "tough on crime" policies, how about spending this money on crime prevention measures, policies and actions that truly benefit society? Something to think about while rocking out to the song...

I have a question? I read your case and it hinges on failure of procedure. why did the lawyer who filed your original boiler plate appeal not know about the new witness evidence. Who shot officer hill? Did you see Rosario kill that officer?

Hi there,

Great question!

Rob does not have access to the internet. Texas deat Row has no Tv's or internet. I can answer this question though. The new brady information about the hit attempt on Rob was not available until after Rob's direct appeal and state habeas appeal. It was suppressed by the prosecution and had not been provided to any of Rob's defense attorneys until over a decade after his arrest. Rob has stated since since arrest he witnessed Rosario shoor deputy Hill. Thanks for your interest!
