Ty Treadwell Dishes on Death Row

I had a great time recently on UMTV's award-winning comedy show Off the Wire, discussing all things strange and trivial about death row. Watch the interview HERE

Look Out, Elf on the Shelf: Here Comes Whale in the Jail!

In the latest attempt to join in on popular fads, death row inmates can now celebrate Christmas with a new cell block buddy; the Whale in the Jail!

Just like the popular Elf on the Shelf, the Whale in the Jail spends time with death row inmates during the day then reports to Santa Claus each night. If an inmate has been naughty, he might wind up with nothing but a lump of prison-issue coal in his stocking on Christmas morning. But if he's been behaving, the convicted felon might be treated to such goodies as a bottle of pruno, an extra helping of nutra-loaf, or even a spare last-minute appeal.

Because of the item's intended surroundings, it should come as no surprise that the toy's designers used a killer whale as their model.
