CA: California Prisoner Confesses To Killing 2 Molesters

[ – 2/20/20]

CORCORAN, Calif. (AP) — A California prison inmate confessed in a letter that he beat two child molesters to death with a cane while behind bars just hours after his urgent warning to a counselor that he might become violent was ignored, a newspaper chain reported Thursday.

Jonathan Watson, 41, confessed in the letter to the Bay Area News Group in Northern California that he clubbed both men in the head on Jan. 16 at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison in Corcoran.

Prisoner David Bobb, 48, died that day. Graham De Luis-Conti, 62, died three days later at a hospital. Both were serving life sentences for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

“We can’t comment on an active investigation,” Dana Simas, spokesman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, wrote in an email.

Watson is serving a life sentence for a 2009 murder conviction.

Days before the attack, he said his security classification was changed and he was transferred from a single-person cell to a lower-security dormitory pod at the Central Valley facility. Watson called the switch a “careless” mistake and said he had protested the decision.

Watson wrote that six days after he arrived at the prison, a child molester moved into the pod. Watson believed the man began taunting other inmates by watching children’s television programming. Watson said in the letter he couldn’t sleep that night “having not done what every instinct told me I should’ve done right then and there.”

Two hours before the attacks the next day, Watson told a prison counselor that he urgently needed to be transferred back to higher-level security “before I really (expletive) one of these dudes up,” but the counselor “scoffed and dismissed” him.

Does Watson have family? Hopefully they are under protection. All it takes is one old CSO to be diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer to go out with a little cane action of her own.

That works the other way around of course. These criminal regimes need to be praying that I don’t get terminal cancer. They should be providing me with a personal doctor.

Of course, I realize that I could just up and die in the next 5 minutes. So I got my full retaliation in over 15 years ago. The criminal regimes could murder me in my home today and they will still have lost 100 times over. Aren’t they smart? Protecting so many children.

The prison is responsible for this and should be held accountable.

This man, Jason Vukovich, took his anger out on 3 people NOT responsible for his hate using his abuse as an excuse. His 23 year sentence may end after 6 years according to the article. I really doubt he is being remorseful; more likely he’s trying to get out as soon as possible to possibly continue his misdirected anger.

I am Furious when the men that are ex offenders have bought into the “Registry should exist”
No !
The Law has a profile on each ex Convict ! And that is where it should stay unless there is an exceptional case ! And even then it should be in the hands of the Police, he should not be reliving nor his victim the crime, because that is the CRIMINAL THING !

The fact that America is celebrating a violent murdering killing two people who inappropriately molested/touched someone under age 14 speaks volumes about this Failing Country. While I am sure what these two people did was bad, celebrating a violent murder shows further proof that America is OK with violence and in some way its a part of American culture, nobody bats an eyelid.

I see comments on my Facebook feed about this story. Every comment was encouragement for murderers such as this. These comments were from people I know. Someone called him a hero for murdering the people in prison, people who were already being punished for their crimes. Someone was considering setting up a GoFundMe account for him. It makes me sick but I don’t know how to be the voice of reason for these people. The moment I speak up I will become the target, and I believe someone will request that my Facebook account be cancelled.

If you are a Person Forced to Register you do have to be careful on Facecrook. I’ve had over 20 accounts disabled. Meh.

If you have some friends or family that made stupid comments, maybe talk to them calmly offline. Challenge their subhuman actions. They need it.

Most others aren’t redeemable and they are dumb. I’ve found great pleasure recently in just hating and messing with them. I respond to every one of them with just dumb comments like, “I’m praying he’ll get out and murder you next. That would be awesome.” Seems to really bother some people, which is nice. They just deserve to live in the hate. So make their hate toxic.

Hello BH you said in your comment “The moment I speak up I will become the target, and I believe someone will request that my Facebook account be cancelled.”
The way you speak up is you do it in the third person, like : ” Did you hear what this person posted on my Facebook, someone in New York that I’ve unfriended?” They will say no & you tell them what you wanna say always in 3rd person & when they ask his name , tell them ” I unfriended him an deleted anything that had to with him, wouldn’t you?” They’ll say whatever they do, you just play along, not long tho but you’ll get a point across & keep them off you and you’ll see what they really think.

Same thing happened to the Romans and their gladiator sports. Their rulers were right then and now, use the right story to paint the scene then feed the mob what they want to hear.

They’re cowards and they have become emboldened by virtue-touting hypocrites and politicians. Ultimately what they preach comes back around.

Of course until then these people are reveling in their newfound sense of righteous unity against a common enemy.

Yes it’s sad what the world has come to, to celebrate that guy on Facebook. I can tell you what my probation officer told me. You cant have a gun & while on probation nothing over a 4 inch blade knife but no law says you cant have a baseball bat, pipe, hammer, an so on and once off probation you can have a longer bladed knife, machete but you can only carry on your person a 4 inch bladed knife, be aware of your surroundings and whos around you. Another on a different site said he has differnt weapons ( pipe, bat, hammer) hidden around his place an property, dont live in fear just protect you an your family.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
