Brings back memories of the murder of Jeff Dahlmer while I was in WI DOC custody in 92-95
I was in a different prison but everyone was talking about the contract upon his life in the yard, even some guards knew of the rumors before it went down. Get the wrong celly and prison life gets unbearable, draw a decent one the time goes much faster.

Given that Dixon was actually guilty of his original murder case ( which he disputes) no way this Sheriff should have celled up these two individuals together. There are drawbacks to making ” lifers” out of convicts. Knowing you got life changes one’s entire outlook and attitude towards the future. I suspect little if any accountability will be put on the jailers, sheriff outside the inevitable wrongful death lawsuit. No DOC culpability was found in the Dahlmer killing. We will have to see what happens here.

This is more common then is reported. I was in a federal prison on the east coast. It was supposed to be a low, but in the 5 years I was there things got very violent. Many SO’s were severely beaten. Some were taken out to the hospital and never returned so we don’t know what became of them. One man, Jodi, who I knew very well, was beaten to death in the chow hall. The FBI even came in to investigate it, the attacker was caught and charged with the murder–but little consolation to Jodi and those of us that knew him.

We had a new warden that came in and was determined to stop all the contraband that was coming in so every time a cell phone was found she would lock that unit down and deny the entire building commissary. The inmates gave her an ultimatum that if she didn’t back off they would beat a sex offender every day. The situation was so tense that I slept with my clothes and shoes on to be ready to move in a minute. after episodes of violence we would have early morning raids by the riot squad storming the building and taking certain key inmates out. The situation was unreal. I never new from day to day if I would get out of there alive. I still have nightmares of being back there.

It was so strange that a person who addicts children to crack cocaine or forces them to sell their body on the street is celebrated in prison, but I had a non-contact offense on the computer and I was reviled and was harassed daily. Strange world the “justice” system has created.

Note that more than half of the comments at the source’s site are attaboys for the killer. Most disheartening. The haters gotta hate. And we registered citizens are legally in season.

That’s not surprising. People who support Registries and the “$EX offender” witch hunt are scumbags and not really humans. That’s known. I always love to tell them that I think people who celebrate the murder of someone else are people who deserve a bullet right between their truly stupid, pathetic eyes. THAT would improve the world.

I can relate to your story. I was at FCI Fort Dix and that place was horrible. Toward the end of my 41-month sentence, I was at FCI Seagoville and that was far better because the ratio of SOs to non-SOs was approx 50%/50%. Strength in numbers!

I did have a few discussions about how every drug dealer provides “free samples” to underage girls in return for sex. I would emphasize that practice makes them a sex offender. They would protest that the 14-15 year old girls knew exactly what they wanted and were not children. I then would explain that I possessed photos of those girls, never touched them and that I was now in prison alongside them. The dealers I spoke to acknowledged the practice and were fair to me afterward.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
