They've been called the modern day Bonnie and Clyde. Shooting it out with the cops.
Theirs is a heartwarming story. A
woman steps up and marries a convict then kills a veteran prison
guard to help her beloved escape from jail. I don't know about you, but she has touched my heart.
How can you not be moved by the
powerful emotion a woman can have for a man who has hurt other people
enough to bring the full force and power of law enforcement on his head
with a sentence of thirty-five years in the slammer?
She was so moved that she lost her
glamorous job as a prison nurse for trying to sneak extra food to him.
She even followed him to his next location when he was moved to a different facility. What
prison Romeo could resist such a devoted Juliet?
It all gives new meaning to the old ball and chain, doesn't it?
Some shrink was on TV this morning
talking about the phenomenon of women who marry convicts and she had a
lot of psycho babble answers for why this happens.
These babes do not go after the petty criminals. Would you? No, they
fall in love with the serial killers and the really violent bad guys.
No mention of being stupid or anything. More like they
identify with sadistic men because these DNA depleted females have a
sadistic streak, too. Nothing wrong with having something in common.
Heck, why couldn't they just marry
regular guys and treat them badly like most women do and take care of
their sadistic tendencies that way? Sadism gets such a bad rap.
Actually, I think it's a pragmatic thing. But these women
wouldn't use that word, since chances are they missed school that day.
However you have to give them a little credit for hooking up with a
guy who has someone else cooking for him
and other people doing his laundry. Along with a bunch of guys carrying weapons to keep him
On reflection, marrying a convict doesn't sound like a bad idea.
Not to mention that he can only
call once a week or so with any requests. You know how guys always want you to pick up more beer and pretzels for them.
He also won't be rolling over in bed at
night asking you, um, how your day was at work, one of the annoying things a girl has to put up
with when she's married to a civilian.
No, this whole marrying a convict
has got to have an undiscovered up side. I don't think enough women have considered inmates as a option in
this match.com world we live in.
When I know what the upside is I'll get back to you. Don't hold your breath. Ha.
