CAMP PENDLETON -- As a sniper, Sgt. Chad Cassady, a quiet Texan with a master's degree in political science, helped protect his fellow Marines during the battle in Fallouja, Iraq, in late 2004. But when insurgent mortars fell behind and in front of the Marines -- a tactic called "bracketing" -- Cassady and other Marines were forced to run across a rubble-strewn street.

When seven Texas inmates tied up prison employees, stole their clothes and escaped with an arsenal of weapons earlier this month, they left a note warning: "You haven't heard the last of us yet." Two weeks later, all seven are wanted in the murder of a police officer in a Christmas Eve holdup at a suburban Dallas sporting goods store about 300 miles away.

They're among the least sympathetic people in Texas--death row inmates, incarcerated for some of the worst crimes imaginable. And ever since an escape two years ago, they're also among the most closely confined. Moved into solo cells, they face 23 hours of solitude daily, with no human contact besides escorts to showers and exercise. On Saturday, though, 48 of those inmates launched a "food strike," joined by 200 inmates in similar conditions across Texas.

What was intended to be a night of rough-and-tumble boozing and brawling, a routine gang initiation in a field beside a Texas bayou, took a ghastly twist when two teen-age girls wandered too near the young toughs. Both were raped, viciously beaten, then strangled with shoe laces and a belt. In September, just 15 months after the crime, three of the youths were convicted of capital murder, joining two fellow gang members--none yet 20 years old--on the path to Texas' crowded Death Row.
