Writing to long-stay prisoners by bIG bLOGGER on 14 August 2009 2:34pm
 
Has anyone ever had the experience of writing to someone in prison? Did you get any responses?
I watched the ITV documentary last night,voiced by Mark Austin,about the Suffolk Strangler,Steve Wright,who was convicted by an Ipswich jury and sent to prison for life.
I wonder if I could write to him? Seems like he could be a lonely guy in there.

OK you're just being plain scary now.

I have corresponded with Peter Sutcliffe for years and I occassionally write to Ian Brady.
Both are much maligned chaps and we must reach out to them.

'...we must reach out to them." NOT ME.

And damn if they release that Locherbee conspirator. Damn them. He belongs just where he is. Compassion? Where was the compassion for the hundreds of innocent folk he helped to murder? HUH?

bb l have to ask, if this guy was on the outside would you still want to send him a postcard? Catch up for a coffee? I think that if someone is looking for a penpal they could find a better candidate.

What would you SAY to this guy bb?

"Hi, you don't know me, I saw a doco about you, love your work"???

He could even write to you, Kaz! HAHAHA.
 
Re: Writing to long-stay prisoners by kazzzz on 15 August 2009 12:23am
 
He could!
Seriously though, if these guys are lonely, well isn't that part of the point of being punished for what they've done?
We have a notorious guy here, who has killed 17 people and has been in and out of jail for years, he has a huge fan base, was flooded with letters while in prison and is now writing children's books, it's pathetic. Anyone who buys one of his books should be ashamed of themselves. This guy has such hero worship, it's ridiculous. I have to wonder if one of your family had been killed by this guy, would you still want to buy his books? There have even been radio competitions where you can win dinner with him , things like that.

People make me sick! Well, you know what I mean. Bleeding hearts. For God's sake, wake up. These people are behind bars for a reason. Think of all the ones who SHOULD be behind bars on account of criminal acts they've committed already but the justice systems and people with so-called 'compassion' "give them" the help they need" and only slap their hands and say no-no. We'll give you a 2nd chance." And I'm talking hardened criminals here. Many aren't put in prison and continue to commit crimes...murders included. Put them away, and for longer than the sentences they are serving. There's too much leniency these days and many are released sooner than they should be. GRRRRR.........
