    Which Is Worse - Murderer or Racist?

    There's a fellow in prison in the UK named Charles Bronson. He has the dubious honour of being Britain's most dangerous prisoner.

    He's got form for armed robbery, vicious beatings & taking hostages like they're going out of fashion. His last escapade involved demands for a cheese sandwich & a helicopter to fly him out of the nick. Obviously this guy is a couple of fingers short of a KitKat. When denied his demands he put a collar on his hostage & led him around the room like a dog.

    As you do.

    Charles is doing a long, long time. He will likely never be released. In this situation prison authorities allow you to marry inside the prison. Charles married a muslim woman. From all accounts it was a nice ceremony & a nice time was had by all.

    Predictably, it all ended in tears & the next thing you know this woman is punting her story around to anyone who will listen - or to be more specific, pay.

    She is saying that letters she recieved from Mr Bronson started off nice, but then they began to contain 'racist' remarks & that we should all know 'what kind of a guy he really is'.

    Now, am I not getting something here? Are we really expected to believe that calling somebody names (however vile) compares in any way shape or form to robbing, beating & hostage-taking? Did we all think he used to be a rather nice guy until he called her a name?

    She thought nothing of hooking up with this character in the first place but because he called her whatever he did, she is now insisting he is demonised by the rest of the world because she says so, based on the fact she didn't like being called names.

    I'm not saying we all love Charlie but in my eyes he has a lot more credibility than this bitch playing her race card in exchange for a few quid. It is people like her - fully supported by people like you - who stifle proper debate on the issue of what is right & wrong & is the reason we're all going to the dogs.

    Standing five feet ten and a half inches tall and weighing 210lbs, he is renowned for his strength. He has bent metal cell doors with his bare hands and does up to 3,000 - yes, 3,000 - press-ups a day. As he puts it: "I can hit a man 20 times in four seconds, I can push 132 press ups in 60 seconds."

    Long-term prisoners are encouraged to cook in their own kitchen on the wings & with a lack of decent stuff to cook, such as steaks & the like, one of the easier & cheapest things to teach them is how to bake a cake.

    Before he embarked on his crusade to become the worst inmate in UK history & had himself permenantly confined to solitary he would have had access to these facilities & I would suspect he is quite an accomplished cake baker.

    Doubt they give him access to knitting needles though.

    He doesn't need 'demonising', the guys an idiot, criminal and a nut job, and has been known as such for years.

    Pity he's often portrayed as some kind of misunderstood English eccentric by the Press.

    She, on the other hand, is going round playing the race card in an attempt to shift a few books or whatever she's plugging. Write a book, by all means, but don't patronise people by suggesting we should hate him more than people do already because he called her a name.

    The idea is laughable.

    If he ever breaks out of jail he could hide in Soi 6 & nobody would give him a second glance looking like that.

    Bronson: 'Gentle boy' to terror inmate



    Bronson: an intelligent boy turned violent hug


    No-one knows exactly how it could have happened.

    But somehow, a little boy from a well-respected family, who was polite, intelligent and who enjoyed school, turned into a muscle-bound criminal, notorious for his reign of terror during 26 years of jail.

    Bronson's jail history1974 armed robbery and wounding1978 wounding with intent1985 wounding1985 criminal damage1993 grievous bodily harm1994 two instances of false imprisonment1997 blackmail, threatening to kill2000 false imprisonment
    Charles Bronson has accumulated a frightening toll of convictions, including wounding, threatening to kill, damaging prison property and taking hostages while behind bars.

    His behaviour has been so disruptive that he has been held at more than 120 jails and spent time at Broadmoor, Rampton and Ashworth special security hospitals.

    But, unlike many violent criminals, there was nothing in his childhood to suggest what he would become.

    The young Michael Peterson, as he was born, came from a highly respectable family from Wales.

    Mayor's nephew

    He was well turned-out and popular with schoolfriends.

    His parents, Eira and Joe Peterson, ran the Conservative club in Aberystwyth and his uncle and aunt were mayor and mayoress of the resort town in the 1960s and '70s.

    His aunt Eileen Parry said: "As a boy he was a lovely lad. He was obviously bright and always good with children.

    Bronson named himself after the Hollywood actor

    "He was gentle and mild-mannered, never a bully - he would defend the weak."

    She says her nephew spiralled into a life of violence and crime when the family moved to Merseyside and he was led astray by a bad crowd.

    After changing his name to Charles Bronson, the Hollywood actor, he made his money by bare-knuckle prize-fighting in the back streets of London's East End.

    Robberies

    With a black handlebar moustache, Bronson later became a circus strongman.

    He married at 19 and had a son, Michael, but he split up with his wife Irene when he began a seven-year year sentence for armed robbery.

    Bronson quickly earned a reputation as a quick-tempered inmate and launched a string of attacks on fellow prisoners and prison staff.

    Bronson joined a circus troupe

    In 1988, he was rearrested for robbery only two months after being freed. He was again released in 1992 but rearrested after three weeks for conspiracy to rob.

    In total, he has had only three months free after repeated offences and has spent 22 out of 26 years' jail in solitary confinement.

    In 1998, seven years were added to his jail sentence after he took two Iraqi hijackers and another inmate hostage at Belmarsh prison in London.

    He insisted his hostages call him "General" and told negotiators he would eat one of his victims unless his demands were met.

    At one stage, Bronson demanded one of the Iraqis hit him "very hard" over the head with a metal tray. When the hostage refused, the 18-stone strongman slashed his own shoulder six times with a razor blade.

    He later told staff: "I'm going to start snapping necks - I'm the number-one hostage taker."

    He demanded a getaway helicopter to take him to Cuba, two Uzi sub-machine guns, 5,000 rounds of ammunition and an axe.

    Knives

    In court, he said he was "as guilty as Adolf Hitler".

    He said: "I was on a mission of madness, but now I'm on a mission of peace and all I want to do now is get home and have a pint with my son."

    In his latest siege, Bronson tied up prison teacher Phil Danielson with a rope and towed him round the jail for 44 hours.

    Armed with two knives, he twice tried to harm himself during the siege. He hit himself over the head with a bottle and tore a washing machine filled with water from its socket in an attempt to electrocute himself.

    Charity fund-raising

    But Bronson's supporters say that alongside his destructive temper, he has a gentle, caring side to his nature.

    He has worked on anti-crime projects, designed to stop young people following in his footsteps.

    A skilful cartoonist, he has had work published in several newspapers and men's magazines. Profits raised have gone to children's animal charities.

    He once wrote to a museum and told them: "Men like me were born to be caged so leave the birds and animals alone or I'll rip your head clean off your shoulders, OK."

    His barrister Isabella Forshall describes Bronson as "a warm man who both gives and receives affection", while his girlfriend Joyce Connor said he was "the most supportive and caring individual".

    Publisher Stephen Richards, who has helped Bronson write two books, said: "He is not a monster, he is a sick man. He needs to be prepared for release and he deserves better treatment than he is getting.

    "He is not ready to come out yet. It will be years before he is. But he should be prepared for that and treated by the prison service, not just locked away on his own."

    It's the BBC news site.

    He's got a page on Myspace. Looking at his 'friends' is like a who's who of villany.

    Dave Courtney is on it, too.

    Fucking maniacs, the lot of them.
