would jump on the prisoner naked then gag him with one of his own socks then cut open his veins. Sometimes the victim would have his penis and scrotum cut off; he in his panic would be trying to get help as the blood was running down his legs. Seven minutes later the victim had bled out. Giving his killer time to place the knife in the victims own bed and exonerate himself.’
He would get back into his bed put on his pyjamas after cleaning himself of all blood stains using the urine from his own piss pot then tipping it into the victims.
If asked why there was blood in the victims piss pot. The cell mate would say that he must have been having a piss when he decided to cut of his own cock and balls.
Other assaults happened whilst showering. The razors were pushed into soft soap then left to harden up. The bar of soap was then carried into the shower covered in a towel. The victim would be picked out held down and his face slashed with the double blade that was placed and 8th of an inch apart. The victim would be slashed from the eye right to his mouth and the blades cut deep into the victims face leaving just a loose flap of skin hanging they would cut the skin in-between the two long gashes so when the victims face was stitched up it would leave a large purple looking scar right down the victims face. This was usually done to anyone who had grassed up another prisoner. This marked him so much that everyone knew in the prison population that he had grassed someone up. Sexual assaults were also common place and the screws turned a blind eye as young lads had their back doors kicked in. this was the term they used to describe someone who had been sexually assaulted. Without money in prison you were a potential victim.
It was three o’clock that afternoon when Jonathan Hardington came with Tanya who had bought him some toiletries, his battery razor, and a radio to listen to so he could keep abreast of the news.
“I have bad news said Jonathan.’
“What is it?’
“They have put the trail back until December 14th.
“Why have they done that?’ four months in here on remand; your fuckin’ kidding me right.’
“No I’m sorry Darren; apparently the police want more time.’
“They cannot keep me locked up in here all that time; I’m bloody innocent.’
“I tried Darren but they are worried that you will jump bail.’
“So you wouldn’t jump bail if you were faced with the prospect of thirty odd years behind bars.’
“I am not you Darren, I don’t have to make that decision.’
“Can you get me put into solitary; I have men in here who want to carve me a new arse hole?’
“I will have a word with the governor of the prison.’
“Very kind of you; don’t go out of your way mind will you; there are people in here willing to slit my throat for a couple of grand you idiot. Do what I pay you for.’
“Can you not do anything Tanya pleaded?’
“I will do my best; it is in their best interest to look after you as they want to see this case brought to trial.’
Oh yes, and so do you so you can get a large pay cheque.’
“Don’t be like that Darren; I have never stopped. I’m pulling strings all over the place to try and get you released on bail.’
“Meanwhile I have to have eyes in the back of my head in case someone jumps me and tries to fuck me in the arse.
