Gregory Matthew Miley was in prison for being an accomplice to William Bonin, whom the press dubbed the "Freeway Killer", responsible for murdering young boys and men in Los Angeles and Orange Counties in 1979 and 1980.


Bonin was executed by lethal injection back in 1996 for the murders. Anyways Gregory Matthew Miley was charged in L.A and Orange Counties for helping Bonin murder two boys in 1980. Few days ago apparently, Miley was killed by another prison inmate, the reason still undetermined.


I just thought this was good news, this guy was an accomplice to a sick serial killer and I think the justice he got at the hands of the inmate was much better suited to him than the one given by California. One less scum from the face of the Earth.

Similar to what I said in this thread, prison justice is a hypocritical thing.

Violent criminals are housed with other violent criminals, so you can assume an accomplice to a murder is also housed with other murderers, accomplices to murders, rapists, or those who committed an aggravated assault or assault against a person. They're not housed with those caught selling drugs. So you'd logically guess that the guy who killed this guy also committed a violent crime. What makes killing (which itself is obviously a violent crime) someone who committed a violent crime you didn't approve of okay, when you also committed a violent crime which landed you in prison in the first place? So this victim's/prisoner's crime wasn't okay, but the crime that landed the dude who killed this prisoner was okay? He got to live, while this guy got to die because he helped kill two boys and that's sooo frowned upon in prison? The irony.

Am I saying I don't think murderers deserve to be put down themselves? No. That's a tough subject and I see both sides of the argument, and find both rather convincing, so much so that I can't decide myself how I feel about it. But prison justice to me is just incredibly hypocritical. You have these convicted violent criminals deciding what crimes are and aren't worthy of payback by other prisoners. Like, some guy who killed his girlfriend killing a prisoner who had sex with little kids, a pedophile. Pedophilia is obviously sick and wrong, but so is killing your girlfriend. Why do prisoners think they get to decide who lives and dies and judge others, when they're in there for violent crimes, too?

At the end of the day though, one less guy CA taxpayers have to pay for.

No I totally see what you are saying, and actually agree.

Probably because there is a type of prison hierarchy. People who do things to children are on the bottom of that list. It may not make sense to some but many of these prisoners frown on that. Either way, this guy lived many more years in prison than the kids he helped kill.

This wasn't justice, this was murder.

And I don't know what the military secret is about the identity of the prison killer, but I'm guessing that justice, in his case, would have been a jury recommending the death penalty rather than wimping out with the usual "he'll get his in prison."

Turns out, he just killed someone else who happened to be a murderer. A D.A. couldn't come up with a better scenario for supporting the death penalty.

My personal opinion on our prison system is that it's a cakewalk. Try spending time in a prison in Brasil, Venezuela, the DRC, or any other countries full of poor young gangbangers. In Brasil, for instance, overcrowded prisons are full of rival gangs stacked on top of each other. Machetes are the norm, access to flame, drugs, knives, poisons, anything you can imagine are readily avail for the inmates.

When they decide to kill someone in a prison in Brasil, they don't just kill him, they torture him first, chop him up, and spread his body around, all while filming the whole thing. There's HUNDREDS of torture/murder videos from South American prisons online if you know where to look. One thing the drug cartels have done to our neighbors in the south is hardened them. It's norm for an inmate to stab another inmate until the body is unrecognizable, and then play with the remains. It's norm to torture. To dismember. It's all about who's harder down there. God help us when these cold calculated serial murderers make it across the border.

Here's a nice feel good story from Colombia : Colombian prison: Remains of at least 100 may be in sewers - CNN.com where they found around 100 disposed of bodies in the sewers. Didn't even know they were missing.

Jails here are cream puffs.
