I can remember what Mr. Bryan said about him “”Mr.Bryan, I know it may not matter to you, but it’s important to me that you know that I’m innocent and didn’t do what they said I did, not no kinda way””. The Author was explaining Walter’s voice “”His voice was level but laced with emotion””. (According to my eBook page no 61) How decent he was but Walter was not that much educated. His approach impressed the author. When driving back to his apartment he was thinking about him. Some other unfairness in the justice according to the author was Mr. Daniel who was mentally ill. This justice system also sentenced youth name, Kuntrell Jackson. Mr. Bryan feels them.

Each death row inmate was placed in a five-by-eight-foot cell with a metal door, a commode, and a steel bunk””. (According to my eBook page 150). Mr. Bryan received a call from Mr.Walter. He was requesting Mr.Bryan to handle his case and Bryan tried to explain his current situation about his office then Walter hangs up. Then Walter called him back and requested him again because the lawyer assigned to Mr.walter refused to take care of his case anymore. Then Mr.Bryan had no power to refuse him again.
