I don't know where to put this, this area seemed the most appropriate area of the forums.
"Is the public aware that I am a gentleman of leisure, watching color TV in the A.C., reading, taking naps at will, eating three well balanced hot meals a day," Hembree asked in the letter. "I'm housed in a building that connects to the new 55 million dollar hospital with round the clock free medical care 24/7."
"What the thinker thinks, the Prover proves". - Robert Anton Wilson
This guy's just pullin' chains, and should be ignored. He has nothing to do BUT nap in what must be at least 23-hour lockdown circumstances 24-7-365. (366 this year.) As for the a/c and color TV - would we really want our prison guards getting jumped by bored-up, sweaty convicts headed for the Death Chamber and thus with absolutely nothing to lose? These are in place to pacify, and put there by prison administration, not "liberal society." Keep 'em relatively comfy in those cells WHERE THEY EXIST ALMOST ALL OF THE TIME and - safer work conditions for public employees. If anyone thinks Death Row in North Carolina turns one into a "gentleman of leisure" - please. Don't let immoral bastards like this one set you off. He's in hell, where he deserves to be, even if he won't admit it.

If that guy was enjoying life on Death Row like he claims, he wouldn't be writing taunting letters to the press goading people into carrying out his sentence. He's a manipulative psychopath, and should be ignored.
but he pays no taxes...LOL
He's so happy there yet he's asking them to kill him. Interesting.
Hembree tells the citizens of Gaston County, N.C., that they should petition that state and force them to carry out his "murder sentence."
A relative of mine, who spends a lot of time in jail on drug charges, told me I'd enjoy it in jail - I could sleep when I wanted to, watch tv, read a lot and have someone else cook my meals. In fact, he suggested it was a good way for me to retire.
Besides, I can sleep when I want to, watch tv, read alot and get someone else to cook for me, but I've never broken the law. You don't have to go to prison in order to get those benefits.
Not all prisons are so cushy. My dad was a CO-1 for the state of PA in one of the oldest facilities in PA. It doesn't have AC and during the dog days of summer it is sweltering. In addition, they have a farm where they grow much of their food--inmates work it w/ officers on horseback guarding and they make other products for Big House Industries. The products are shipped out to other institutions to eliminate having to buy products wasting more taxpayer money. I don't know if this is the norm throughout PA, but inmates here (maximum w/ a death row) certainly don't enjoy all of the comforts the ACLU can buy. (Yes, the ACLU has gone after the state several times for the lack of AC, making inmates work, etc., but so far, no go.)
Even chaos is well patterned.
How sad for the victims family.
Just striving to be average.
I didn't see anything on this .... man ...
A convicted murderer on death row in North Carolina wrote a taunting letter to his hometown newspaper about his life of "leisure" in prison and making a mockery of the legal system. Danny Robbie Hembree Jr. was found guilty of murdering 17-year-old Heather Catterton in 2009 and was sentenced to death on Nov. 18, 2011.

hopefully someone can get to him in the system & hopefully some others turn a blind eye while it is happening
we'll see how much he's laughing when the brutal reality, that he's been protected from, comes knocking
OOps Thanks!! I searched by his name but nothing came up! =)
However, I think this guy and others like him are not merely pulling our chains. Psychopaths tend to adjust well to prison, from what I've read. Yeah, they'd rather be out but they don't react like normal people do, like someone with a soul would react to the lack of stimulation, human touch, access to pets, sun, etc. They are already dead inside. Prison ain't nothin' but a thing.
For Travis Alexander, a human being. Justice will prevail.
*Gitana (means "Gypsy girl"). Pronounced "hee tah nah."
The newspaper fed right into it by publishing his letter. They should mark them "return to sender" and leave them unopened. I bet he'd "love" that
Jurors in the murder trial of an accused serial killer heard him confess to the crime in a second taped interview with police.
Danny Hembree tells Gaston County investigators he killed Randi Saldana at his mother's house in 2009.
snip....Hembree was sentenced to death last November for the murder of 17-year-old Heather Catterton.
He told investigators that his Mom was awake in the kitchen
In the article they call him a serial killer. But so far I have found the two murders.
Ok in an older article it says that he is also suspected of the murder of Deborah Ratchford but hasn't been charged.

Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........
Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

just how pleasant would it be to sleep in your bathroom and listening to hundreds of people talk all hours of the night. You couldn't get me to the needle fast enough!
