Dead Man Walking


Chapter 3

Summary Chapter 3

Prejean’s conversation with Lloyd LeBlanc, touched on briefly earlier in the narrative, helps complete the portrait not only of Patrick, but of the suffering his crime has caused. For Prejean to live up to her ideals and values, she must fully consider the perspective of the victims’ families. Lloyd LeBlanc thinks of Patrick as a man who spent his time hunting for women and teenagers. His perspective is not only understandable, but also partially accurate. This is the other side of Patrick and the justification for the death penalty. His crime has shattered the lives of two families. For these families, the execution of Patrick is not a violation of his rights, but an act of justice.
