Pen Pals: Find a friend behind enemy lines

October 5, 2009

Taking photos of prisoners is prohibited in many prisons, so the few that find their way out are precious. The Bay View thanks longtime subscriber and writer Uhuru Baraka (Brian Lee) Rowe, 1131545, Sussex 2 SP, 24427 Musselwhite Dr., Waverly VA 23891, for sending this one.

Life behind enemy lines can be lonely, and a letter from a friend – a pen pal – can liberate mind and spirit. These prisoners are reaching out to you. They trust that Bay View readers truly care. Reach back and write a letter today!

If you can, light up life for a brother or sister behind the walls by making a donation to the Prisoners’ Subscription Fund. (Click on the DONATE button and specify the Prisoners Subscription Fund.) Put Bay View newspapers in the hands of prisoners wanting to move from the BayView subscription waiting list to the mailing list. Prisoners often write to say, “The Bay View keeps me alive.”

Hello I am a 46 year old white male, good looking, in shape, looking for friendship – if more can come then let it be. But more than that I am an inventor. I have some ideas that I know will make millions of dollars. I am looking for an investor, someone that knows how to get patents and get ideas going. Daymond John or Lori Greiner are two people that can help. So if you’re someone reading this that can help me get in to contact with them that is who can help. I understand nothing is free in this world but I’m willing to share, all you got to do is help me get my idea out there. Yes I’m in prison, I’m go up for parole Oct 2018 so I should be out soon. I am from Kansas City, Missouri. If I could find someone close to there it would help but I have no tie to nowhere. If you send me a pic you must do so in an envelope by itself, no letter or anything else can be with the pic. I will answer all letters then go from there. But for real I need someone to help me jump start my ideas. Thanks. Gary Riddle #367116, JCCC, 7-D-112, 8200 No More Victims Road, Jefferson City, MO 65101

Hello – my name is Carlos and I am a lost and forgotten man behind bars. Looking for a friendship with someone who is willing to listen and be listened to in joyful conversations in which we can have a good time. What can I say about me is that I am a guy of a little too many mistakes that had taken their toll in my life and in which today I am not perfect but more mature. But there is also a lot of emptiness, something void that ills the mind making this phase of my life maybe too hard to find sense in this beautiful world. That’s why today I am writing this to someone good hearted that have a better view of life who maybe can share something good with me. Thanks sincerely.

Hi – my name is Eric. I’m 53 years old, born and raised in good ole Kentucky. I’m a Taurus who’s looking for a woman who’s honest, open-minded, humble, has an “attitude of gratitude”, and is interested in a long-term relationship. Someone who cares more about actions than words when it comes to love. A country gal who knows all about country living, food, etc. Looks and age don’t really matter, I’m more concerned about the heart. They saw you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but I’m learning them every day. I’m involved in an intense program that challenges us to become better people. I love riding motorcycles and enjoy going to bike events like Sturgis, Daytona, Myrtle Beach, Panama City and other activities. I believe in treating a woman like a goddess, and I’m very protective of her. I can’t stand to see a woman get mistreated. If you had kids, that’s great. I love kids. I’m a big kid myself. A perfect night involves taking my woman out to eat, maybe a long walk on the beach or in the park, come back and sit in the hot tub, just her and I and Mr. Bubble 😊 Just relax and tell her how special she is to me. Other interests I enjoy are swimming, sunbathing, dancing, building houses, working on motorcycles. I pray this profile will touch one of you ladies and you’ll drop me a line or two.

Dearest Lady-Friend Reader – I’m very happy that you’re reading about me and deciding whether or not to bless me with some of your precious time. I will be most delighted…however, I hope only to attract a certain type of woman. I’d like to talk with a Grown woman, not some girl trapped in a woman’s body, or who refuses to embrace maturity. I also must operate on total honesty. Should matter arise that are best not spoken about, I can accept being told that but what is shared must be absolute truth. I would be pleased with someone who is in and values her own personal relationship with God. I believe that we have a lot to offer someone as man & woman of God. Nevertheless, I am a 39 year old adventurous, high spirited, and self motivated man…let’s take a journey together and enjoy what the universe creates.

Seeking a single woman of completeness

A woman of substance, a risk taker

A woman of dignity who was raised

To respect who respects her.

This. Peace and love to you and your

Hi there! I am a single white female, 5’2”, approximately 160 lbs. currently incarcerated in Mississippi. I’ll be honest with you right from the start. I’m all alone here. I need help. I can’t afford a lawyer so I’m trying to do all my legal work myself – I’m on the learn as you go plan. I don’t make canteen and have to hustle for everything I get. And it’s very hard to get by when you are by yourself. I can’t even pay one of the “jailhouse lawyers” to help me. I need someone to help me. It’s very hard for me to ask complete strangers for help. But here I am. I’m currently serving 3 Life Sentences for a crime I did not commit! My ex-husband did this to me for revenge. Now I’m trying to get back home. Please isn’t there anyone out there who can help me? I’m truly desperate and at the end of my rope here. If you can help me by assisting me in learning the legalities of the system, I want to hear from you. If you can help me with a few dollars on my books to pay someone to help me wade through this legal nightmare, I want to hear from you. There’s one catch though – this facility does not allow inmate to inmate mail – so you’ll have to be creative to get your letter to me – bounce it, put my info in the return address and mail to a false address, etc. To put money on my account, use the information below at or Western Union, I’m at the Mississippi Department of Corrections. I’m waiting to hear from you. Angelena Miller #70802, CMCF 1A Yard, PO Box 88550, Pearl, MS 39288

De’Von, Samuel-James, Singleton-Perkins…..Full Throttle M.C. H.O.T F.R.O.G

D.O.B. (Age)(Sign): Age: 39, February 19, 1979….Aquarius-Pisces

Complexion: Brown skin, Brown eyes, Height: 6 FT.

Nationality: Haitian-Belizean-American

Family Stats: Extremely family oriented, love reading, researching, writing poetry, exercising, learning about different cultures, very humorous, charismatic, enjoy laughter (after all, it’s the secret to long life 😊) pretty much, I’m a great personality of character, integrity, and respect. A true gentleman. Truthfully 😊

On the contrary, I’m inquiring into women of multiple nationalities, between the ages of 25-59, who hold similar characteristics as I do. Loyalty, honesty, and trust are rare assets, not everyone has the integrity to possess these traits; the price tag is often too expensive…Yet they’re priceless! So as we work on building a strong common foundation as ‘Luda, Usher, Lil John address in lover & friends…Given the option to choose…Hopefully we can choose something great.

I’m looking for a unique creation to share my greatness. They say behind every Real Strong Man is a Real Strong woman….Nelson Mandela had Winnie, Malcolm X had Shabazz, and MLK had Coretta. Gorgeous, it would be my pleasure to have you.

My idea of a special and amazing woman is authenticity and purity in heart, mind, and spirit. True beauty is unable to be seen or touched, strictly felt. So, honest communication is a factor. Based on passion, intimacy, and chemistry is created through sincerity of connection, entwinement, a true relationship that supersede the physical yet compliment the spiritual. A true bond. King/Queen oriented.

Life is full of opportunity. And I’m confident our acquaintance can potentially become a gift we both grow to appreciate. Prove me right 😊 Sincerely.

    I have been sentenced to a disproportional amout of time (75 years) for arm robbery. Although I am optimistic to eventually overcome this, it is what it is and every day is a struggle. Nevertheless: strong I remain. My faith in my self has never wavered. I am 36 years young, born June 9th 1972. Although I am open to relating and exchanging with someone about life, I’d be happy if someone could assist me on the creative side. I do portraits.

    Rob just turned 21 on 3/8. He just doesn’t belong where he’s at. His family lives in Georgia, hundreds of miles away. His paternal grandparents see him every few months. His parents are divorced and make all kinds of promises to him such as that they’ll visit but they don’t. He’s been in jail since he was 19. He looks like a sweet kid but he sure has lived a hard life. He suffered with leukemia from a small child until it went into remission when he was 14.

    Thanks for posting this, it is so important and rewarding for both to correspond with and befriend someone in (or outside) prison. It is also very important for healing society, and many need help to be redeemed.

We miss you..I never stopped loving you. And happy birthday…

    It says my comment must be approved before it will appear. I will be more than happy to send proof of his manipulations. Email me. Please don't aid him in scamming another person. I was shocked at this ad! He doesn't even like black people and is a constant user of the "n" word . I will be glad to scan you in proof of that upon request as well! Just send me an email!

    Any women who would like a pen-pal please write to Marco Germano 395 Halsey Street Apartment#303 Newark, New Jersey 07102 email

    Will respond to all letters and/or emails . My friends and myself all understand what it’s like to be locked up and how important it is to have contact with the outside world. I hope to make some friends and help make some ladies day a little better .Who knows maybe I can’t find that special woman because they got her locked up and now we can find each other. Truth is I know how much it sucks being locked up and all those great friends are to busy to write and end up forgetting about you .I’m not looking to be anyone’s sugar daddy and I don’t need any girls trying to sell me a dream .I’m a laidback homie that saw these posts for pen-pals and I remembered that pain of being locked up and how much it meant to have any homegirl on the streets drop me a letter .One time I gor a letter from this woman who was a friend of a friend’s friend! We ended up writing once a week for 2 years until she got married .She never sold me a dream but she did show me love and respect .Our letter were like two friends kicking it at the bar or at the park talking about dumb stuff but always able to bring up deep stuff when needed .5 years later and her and her husband are friends here on the streets.

    I believe only people who have been locked up for a couple years or more can understand our hearts and our souls. Only we can relate to the pain, being lonely, and damage the system tries to inflict on us .So it’s only us who can help, comfort, and sometimes save another from the system .

    So ladies drop me a letter and I will write you back. Maybe we’ll become friends, maybe lovers, or maybe we’ll end up saving each other. I also have friends who I can introduce to you.

    All my love and respect, Marco

    P.s. Myself and anyone who I might introduce to you has been to prison for various crimes. That said I guarantee No Sex Offense, No Child cruelty, No women beaters, No Stalkers, and no other gross creepy crimes. We expect the same from you .

  32. Jorell Young

    I write to any female in good faith an in hopes that someone special would like to correspond with me as time allows them to do so. I was going to write the perfect fantasy introduction of myself but found that doing that would be an oddity and somewhat of a ridiculous task. I'm 31 years of age, SBM 6 ft and 165 lbs. I'm willing to write to a down to earth female with a positive and respectful conversation. I'm looking for the female with the changed life with a story to tell. Female inmates are encouraged to write as well. I hope to hear from you soon.
