Inmate Online Personals

This is the second article I've read in two days about various inmates placing ads for pen pals and more on a couple of different internet sites. The first was about a man who was convicted of murdering a 13 year old he met online and several years later posted another personal ad seeking pen pals. Sick sick sick. The article did say that pulled the ad without hesitation once contacted by prison authorities.

This one is about Susan Smith. Remember her? Almost 10 years ago, she pushed her car into John D. Long lake in South Carolina with her two babies, Michael and Alex, strapped in the back seat in cold-blooded murder. Even her picture is posted there. OK - maybe I should show her some compassion - I will do that by not writing her. But here, she deserves to be in prison for the rest of her natural life. I hope that she has met God, because He can forgive anything.. His grace is much more expansive than mine.
