32- Agreed. IDK the truth, and only this guy. Sorry, I'm just 11 and well, my dad brainwashed me with the whole "pedo" crap before he died and now, well ok so yea, every prisioner I like that to me. It's also tv. Usually what I see on the news is "13 year old raped, man sent to prision." Sorry if im annoying :| (scratch that, I am)
It actually doesn't say how old OP's daughter is. She could be a grown woman who happened to have a friend who went to prison for a non violent crime and now she keeps contact by writing him. Not everyone in prison is a child molesting scum bag, there are actually quite a lot of innocent people who are locked up. I'm hoping this is the case anyway, I try to see the good in things.
If it was all innocent and there was a genuine friendship there, then no, I wouldn't have a problem with it. There would be a lot of "ifs" though. It would definitely depend on IF she was older and IF his crime wasn't against children or of a violent nature. Also, only IF there wasn't anything sexual going on between them. He could mentor her and teach her about the dangers out there and how not to make the same mistakes he did. A lot of kids won't listen to their parents, but if someone they respect outside of their parental circle tells them the exact same thing they tend to listen. There are actually good hearted people with very high morals in prison for one bad decision or a wrong conviction.
Surprise! The 'pen pal' you're daughter talks to happens to be a creeping pedobear! It's your lucky day!
47- I know... Innocent people do go to prision, no shit. My cousin for example... My point is, what do you see on the news nowadays? Then again, this man could be one of her friend's dad, and she's just checking up on him. Yes, I know, making an assumption like I did was a terrible idea.
A 58 year old man writing letters to a what i suspect is an underaged girl.. normally when you get older, you go online. I wouldnt like my daughter to speak with him either. You would have no idea knowing who this man is. Yes he could be innocent, but chances are he's not, and by the sounds of it, why would a grown up man write to a strangers child he never even met? My thoughts anyways...
How did nobody notice this when the letters were addressed/had the return address of a prison..?
I write inmates. You'll know when you get a letter from one. It's taped in the back, with an ink stamp telling you it's from a prison, that inmate mail isn't always monitored, and sometimes even a disclaimer saying they hold no responsibility for what the inmate says.
So? People in prison need pen pals too.. I don't see anything wrong with it unless there was inappropriate things written in the letters.
I agree fully. Very decent people end up in prison sometimes because of a error in judgement that happened in a split second. I knew a guy who went for prison for 9 years because he decided to drive home after having 3 beers after work. An old lady ran a red light and he hit and killed her, but because he had over the legal limit of alcohol in his system he went to prison.
That's.. Unnerving. Perhaps it's reassuring that he is in prison so that he can never meet up with her?
It's a common thing for prisoners to have pen pals like that. I mean, sure it's odd that what I'm assuming is a relatively young girl has a prisoner pen pal, but it's not a bad thing. If anything, it could be beneficial for the girl. It means she's not living in a fantasy where she thinks there isn't any evil in the world.
Holy shit 31, way to be a closed minded tard. Just because he's in prison doesn't mean he's some fanatical dickwad! He could be in for a very long time because he held up a bank with a damn crayon. (one of my pen pals did that. A red crayon, very odd.) He did it because his bitch of an ex wife made him feel like less of a man for losing his job in rough times and talked him into robbing a bank. 'you'll get out' she says, 'they won't find the money and when you get out its all ours' she says. And she was right on both accounts. Lol.
