  3. I wonder if Illinois just elected new governor Democrat J.B. Pritzker might pardon Paul. It should give him some hope. Has anyone thought about writing him real fast before he gets busy in the office?

    1. Paul's clemency petition is coming up under review under Pritzker. Although it would help to write Rauner as well

  5. What are you doing in prison to show yourself a productive person? From reading parts of your blog, I note that you received a bachelor's degree from an accredited university. I realize that you have autism and cannot deal with a traditional prison job. But are you taking classes or participating in any prison clubs or sports teams? Who in the prison could vouch for your character?

    1. Paul recently applied for more college classes but was over qualified for them. There aren't really any programs or teams to participate in anymore. Paul was on the weight lifting team when they had one. The prison got rid of the majority of them. Many of guards do like Paul and his prison record vouches for him on it's own.

    2. Maybe instead of demeaning other prisoners, you could try random acts of kindness. Could you tutor other prisoners? Could you take the initiative to break down racial barriers? You got a raw deal in the media and in the courts. I hope you realize you aren't the only one in there that is innocent.

    3. What about the Stateville Choir or the barber school?

      Delete
    4. There is no place at the prison where he could tutor. There is very little interaction with other prisoners in a max security.

      Paul can't sing and isn't interested in becoming a barber.

  6. Paul, I am not going to let you die in there. I NEED you to get back in touch with me.
    I won't share details here, but I have spoken to your mom a few times and she was not able to give me your case number.
    Please write again (same address as always) or email me at jenniferennenbach@gmail.com

  7. Why doesn’t Paul want to do something productive with his life besides just sit there in his cell. He could mop floors, clean showers and commodes, pick up dead bugs and cigarette butts etc. I think that might help count towards him showing a willingness to make a positive contribution to others around him and score some points with the powers that be and maybe ultimately help him get out.

    1. Paul just doesn't sit in his cell all day doing nothing, he's actually pretty busy between work outs, letter writing, phone calls, visits, reading legal papers among other things. There is no parole board in Illinois so "good works" don't really help you out in prison. Paul has a very good disciplinary record with no violent offenses though which is one of the things they look at for clemency petitions.

      If you would like to help Paul get out, please write Governor Pritzker supporting his latest clemency petition.

    2. Yeah but regardless he doesn’t do anything to help others out in the system. It’s all about busy Paul taking care of Paul. It just doesn’t look good. He’s perfectly capable of engaging in some kind of work occupation.

    3. Once again, it's not something they really look at in Illinois. Also prison jobs are hard to get and rotate every six months

    4. He is disabled.

    5. Paul is not disabled. He has problems with his back but he's not disabled.

  8. Sounds like a piss poor excuse to me. You’ve been in the pen for over 25 years and have never worked day one on the inside. You’re weak. And lazy.
