It is really a shame that it's that hot in the quads. I cannot imagine living in the heat we have in PA without the benefit of air conditioning. The humidity plus the smell of so many people crammed together must be unbearable.

I do understand why the guards get air conditioning however. It is a pretty thankless job working as a prison guard, and I can only imagine the stress the correctional officers face on a daily basis. It would seem conditions would be much worse were they to not have a refuge from the heat, aggravation and general despondency that must come part and parcel with that job.

As to them getting their cars fixed, etc.... This does not seem like a bad thing to me. I am sure there are people in the system that appreciate the skills learned when they are finally allowed to leave, a skill would lessen the overall instances of recidivism, no?

Your appeal interests me. It is my understanding that first degree murder includes the planning of a murder, and your case would seem to be more of a crime of the moment type scenario. I suppose your actions afterwards, desecration of a corpse, grand theft auto, burglary, the list is quite long... Make the point somewhat moot however. You bemoan the waste of tax payer dollars, but wouldn't an appeal process be more of a waste of those same dollars... Which frankly could be better spent elsewhere?

My goodness, complaining about the cable not being free.... This seems to be an ongoing theme in many of your posts. When everyone on the outside is paying for cable (I know I certainly do, to the tune of about $180/month), I am at a loss as to why this should be an issue for you? No matter how you look at it, your life is at it's base level a "free ride" and has been for the large majority of your time on the planet.

I really do feel for your daughter though. I don't think the sins of the father should be visited upon their progeny, but I also do not think that a father is defined purely by supplying the genetic material to make a child. A father is able to be there for their children, and makes sacrifices in their own life to make sure that is a reality. Anything else is simply a delusional fantasy.

Well, I hope they day gets better for you. For me, I am off to the backyard to stand over a hot grill and cook dinner for the family. Ciao!

Hey Robby...Sorry I haven't written in a while but my life has been crazy. I lost my password for this site so I had to set up a new account. I've just been busy with work and yes I did move back in with my Mom and Dad. I'm originally from Johnstown,Pa so I'm familiar were Huntingdon is. I didn't move to Sellersville area until I was about 9 or so but I've been back to J-town thoughout the years. I read the comment of the other guy and all I gotta say about that is...WHAT A DICK! I mean seriously...He has to write you and say nasty shit!??? What a Loser! He say's he's the "FRIEND" of the guy you supposedly killed? He was probably his "BUTT-BUDDY" that's why he's probably so pissed! Lol... Anyway's I feel for ya being locked up with all those dickhead security guards! They're just assholes cause they couldn't be real cops! So don't let them bring you down... O' the "J" is for my last Name. I'm not married but I don't like to put my last name on the internet cause sometimes weirdo's read these things then they try an find you on facebook or google+ and start sending you (ME) all kinds of peverted shit! I have had a few sicko's do that before and had to have my brother beat the shit outta them to get them to leave me alone. Actually my brother did like 3 years at S.C.I. Somerset for aggravated assault for beating up some asshole who was stalking me on line.He was from Levittown and kept sending me pics of himself nude and he was like 50 yrs old and discusting. I was going to call th cops but I told my brother first and he got the guys adresse and went to his house and fucked him up! I felt bad cause m brother had to go to jail just cause he was protecting me. But the asshole cops actually stuck up for the weirdo saying shit like " even though he did that...he still has rights and that dosen't give your brother the right to attack and hurt him"! That just made me hate cops even more! Lol... but try and keep your head up...I don't have any old pics from my elementry years but I have a bunch on my phone. I just have to take my S.D,Card out and take it to a drug store and get some printed. Hopefully I can do this soon and I'll get a few pics in the mail to you ok....I really feel for Krista. I xan't immagine what she must be going through. And that's messed up that guy showed her your charges off the internet. He had no right to do that! Can you get conginal visits? If so??? Ever think of getting married??? "Hint Hint" your really hot! Yummy!!! :) I'll get pics in the mail soon! Ttyl8r...Heather J......

This is in reference to the post above. Below, I am linking to the community guidelines. In it, it asks that people who post refrain from

"personal attacks" and "hate speech."

It sounds like you have strong opinions against someone else who has posted.

It seems to me that you should find a way to express that without personally attacking them or making comments that fall outside these accepted guidelines.
