North Carolina Death Row Inmate Writes Letter About Life of 'Leisure'

I don't know where to put this, this area seemed the most appropriate area of the forums.

Interesting read:

http://news.yahoo.com/north-carolina...-abc-news.html

Quote:
"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."

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.

He's so happy there yet he's asking them to kill him. Interesting.

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.

Go figure.

And was this relative of yours ever on Death Row? I don't think he would enjoy all this sleeping, TV watching and general laziness if he had lethal injection hanging over his head.

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.)

Having worked in mental health in the North Carolina Department of Correction as a Correctional Psychological Services Coordinator, I can assure you that being on death row at Central Prison is not a vacation. But he does have a point about a general absence of sure, swift, and relevant punishment in the US. The same revolving doors are in your local courthouse and inside your city jails and state prisons. Commit a crime and you are likely not to get caught, if caught you are likely not to go to trial, if you go to trial you will likely not be convicted, if you are convicted you will likely not be convicted of the crime(s) you committed, if convicted for the crimes you committed you will likely not receive the sentence you deserve, if you receive a sentence that matches your crime you likely will not serve much of it ... then you can start over... after learning that “criminal justice system” is an oxymoron. The judges and politicians stay powerful, the lawyers are well employed, and the prisons just keep rolling along.

This makes me sooo mad!!!

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.

I understand your sentiments, but anyone in NCDOC turning a blind eye to his harm would be up for criminal charges and civil liabilities.

Agreed. I think this is what casey anthony's attitude would be like if she had been found guilty and convicted.

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.

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 hear taped confession in Hembree murder trial

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.
http://www.wbtv.com/story/17233881/v...e-murder-trial

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.

IMO prison should be a place no one every wants to go back to. I like that the prisoners need to earn their keep.

The barely throttled back rage between every line of this evil little screed says he knows bloody well he's not sitting in quite the catbird seat he would like us to believe.

He's a real piece of garbage, who took a young woman's life and now wants attention. This is all he is seeking. I doubt it is all cushy and wonderful for this SOB. I think the paper should not have printed his letter and encouraged his behavior of so called "Bragging" about his life. Doubt it is true.
