    Inmate won't use "get out of jail free" card

    Inmate won't use "get out of jail free" card

    Oct 23, 8:16 AM (ET)


    BERLIN (Reuters) - A 59-year-old German man who has spent the last 34 years in jail has turned down offers to be let out, an official said Saturday.

    "He rejected an offer to leave in 1992," Thomas Melzer, a spokesman for the Brandenburg state justice ministry, told Bild newspaper. "We can't do anything if someone sentenced to life in prison doesn't want to leave."

    The man, identified only as Gerold H, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1972 when the area was part of communist East Germany.

    German prisoners have no obligation to agree to leave jail before their sentences have been completed.

    I actually know a guy who likes it in jail. Gets to be a big shot, no responsibilities, television & food. They let him out and he immediately does something to get back in. What a looser.

    Ya, I have a nephew who is in and out of prison all the time. You know the saying, "Lead by example." He followed the example of his dad- my former brother-in-law.

    One of my brothers has been in prison for a couple years now. He gets to go home everyday though. Guess they allow corrections officers to do that.

    Hell, I've been in prison since Sept. 17th, 1990. My release date is in 2010. Yahoo!! Only four more years to go!

    Fortunately, I get to go home every night and on weekends, unlike all the others here...

    I use to do all the plumbing at a county jail in Iowa. Often we would be among the inmates and they would ask to help us. Ya right, like I’m gonna give an inmate access to a screw driver or other escape tools and/or weapons. They’d ask for cigarettes too. After we said no to all the requests they’d ask why not. We’d say, “Because we get to go in and we get to go out, and we want to keep it that way.”
