Jonathan Watson, 41, was already doing a life sentence for murder when he murdered two child molesters in a California prison and this isn’t an allegedly situation. Watson wrote a letter to the editor of a California newspaper admitting what he did and why he did it. The two men he murdered were both doing life sentences.
I don’t know about you, but this is a great way to reduce the prison population. Watson should get an extra plate of food for dinner at least for a month. Bro, you just saved the California penal system some serious money. I’ve been watching World’s Worst Prisons on Netflix and I have to believe Watson is one of those guys who just gets things done in jail. Probably one of those guys who stays to himself until a job needs to be completed.
From the Bay Area News Group:
In a letter to this news organization, Watson, 41, said he murdered David Bobb, 48, and Graham De Luis-Conti, 62, with another inmate’s cane just one week after being transferred to California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, in Corcoran.
Watson wrote that hours before attacking both men, he told a counselor at the prison that he wanted to be transferred, adding that the request was “urgent,” and that he would soon attack an inmate, but said that the warning was ignored. After the first attack, Watson said he was surprised at the lack of response from guards, so he singled out a second “child trafficker” and began beating him. Authorities were unaware of either homicide until Watson located a guard and led him to the bloody scene, he wrote.
It’s believed that one of the molesters “began watching PBS Kids in full view of other inmates” and sent Watson over the edge. He killed that guy, then on his way to confess to the killing, he went HAM on another molester. Then he confessed to all of it and said “Being a lifer, I’m in a unique position where I sometimes have access to these people and I have so little to lose.”
And that’s that. Watson was serving 50 to life for a 2008 murder of a guy at a house where there was quite a bit of weed being grown and processed. Now comes a choice for the state of California. Do they get some of the child molesters out of the prison system by placing them in cells with Watson or not? Big choice coming up.
