This week I learned that there’s another Stuart Hickox out there, registered by INTERPOL, who is a convicted felon. And I’m glad it’s not me. Prison is pretty grim.
I’m going to write more about my day in jail; today’s hectic at work. Suffice to say I now know what it’s like to look a cold blooded murderer in the eye. And shake his hand. I interviewed two first degree lifers yesterday. One will be in jail for life; during his first parole he killed and then dismembered a young woman, and left her body in a bog. Another guy bludgeoned someone to death in a bar fight. He was 19. That was 20 years ago. Now he has 67,000 hours of experience as a spot welder.
