Released TDCJ video on Youtube implies Death Row inmate was mistreated
By Duane Stuart, Backgate Website
A newly released YouTube video that depicts a Texas death row inmate as a victim of abuse at the Polunski prison unit has surfaced recently and has drawn criticism from the general public.
What the anti-death penalty videographer based in Canada failed to mention is that Cartwright was a major disciplinary based offender. He amassed a huge list of internal offenses to include assaulting prison staff during his stay on the Polunski death row.
Next time, it would behoove the videographer to include how he got to death row and what he did while there before posting negative information on the employees of the Polunski unit. His crime was never addressed in the video. Just the tapes with him as the star as he violated TDCJ rules. The execution of offender Cartwright has since been carried out.
