What would you do if you had to cell with this guy?

There are many that believe California's Prison Rehabilitation System and other systems around the world have more sinister purpose outside of incarceration. Discuss prison topics here in California, throughout the United States and Internationally.

Imagine doing time harder than that.
There are lots of scary guys in prison, but Gray is very high on that list. In trouble since he was at least sixteen, Gray has done time for robbery and assault. In 1985 he was convicted of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a woman along the banks of Cherry Creek. He was sentenced to sixteen years for stabbing her fourteen times.

Two years later, Gray was charged with his first in-prison rape. He was found guilty following an administrative hearing and sent to the maximum-security prison in Cañon City.

He was paroled in January 1991 and skipped town a couple of days later. But the following year, he was arrested for robbery and sent back to prison, this time for good. He was deemed a habitual criminal and given three life terms.

Gray couldn't stay out of trouble, even behind bars. In November 1992 he was charged with killing another prisoner. The charge didn't keep prison officials from double-bunking Gray with other prisoners, however, and on July 19, 1993, Gray was given a new cellmate, a 27-year-old who was in on a contraband rap.

The next morning, the man reported he'd been beaten, knocked unconscious and raped. He wouldn't say who'd assaulted him, but he was put on a suicide watch and moved out of Gray's cell. On July 20, Gray got another new roommate. That man lasted less than a day; when he learned he was to bunk with Gray, he demanded to be moved.

So prison officials moved Maynard in.

A captain of the prison guards later admitted in a written statement that he knew Gray had a history as a sexual predator but he believed that moving another large weightlifter into a cell with him would "reduce the potential for another sex assault." The captain failed to mention that Gray outweighed Maynard by 120 pounds.

The trouble started soon after lights out, Maynard told Westword in a 1995 interview ("Hard Time," October 25, 1995). Gray started getting worked up over the necessity of forming "emotional bonds" while in prison. Part of that tie, he explained to Maynard, was physical bonding. At about 3 a.m., Maynard said, Gray attacked him, choking him into near-unconsciousness, then sexually assaulted him.

Maynard decided to hell with the convict code of silence, and he told a guard what had happened. Gray was slam-dunked into solitary, and the following day, after learning that he was locked up, the victim of the July 19 assault also named Gray as his attacker.
In 1993, Mervin had words with a corrections officer, and was reassigned to share a cell with Gray, a 300-pound man capable of bench-pressing 500 pounds. That was just days after another inmate had reported being raped by Gray and was removed from the cell.
Mervin was beaten and raped that night.
The way the prison culture works, prison rape victims keep quiet and keep getting raped, Mervin said.
"They are supposed to go to their corner to lick their wounds," he said.
Mervin bucked the system and sought an attorney.
The decision has haunted him ever since, he said.
He said Limon correctional officers told other inmates that he was a snitch and to retaliate against him for filing a lawsuit. Thereafter, he was often confronted by members of the "211 Gang," and the "Aryan Syndicate Gang," both white supremacist gangs.
He extended his arms out over a table in the Fremont prison visitor's room to show where inmates had slashed him with a shank, or prison knife. In an inventory of his injuries, he recounted a broken thumb, a broken ankle, a dislocated shoulder, a broken jaw and burns when an inmate threw boiling water on him.

More about him I found:
http://www.crimelife.com/killers/gray.html
Until the true scope of Gray's crimes are known, there is little doubt he will attempt to stay in the public eye with his various antics and outbursts. During the Didier trial Gray was forced to represent himself after repeated threats against his own lawyers. He has been forcefully removed from the courtroom for unruly behavior and threatening to hurt others in the court, a frightening thought considering Gray is so physically strong that he has to be restrained with leg irons. On his wrists.

Gray is fond of the occasional interview, using them to boost his killer image. He has claimed to be a "natural born murderer", and says that "all I think about is killing people".
Imagine what would happen if him and Tookie were placed in the same cell. WOuld it be world war 3?

Gray is so strong that deputies have used modified leg irons to restrain his wrists. On Tuesday, Gray bent the leg irons and broke out of them, according to 7NEWS. Authorities said that Gray has threatened to cause problems or hurt someone in the courtroom during his trial, where he is representing himself. Defense lawyers have refused to represent him because he's threatened to kill them, 7NEWS reporter Julie Hayden said. In an interview at the jail, he told 7NEWS that he has killed 41 people.
This guy makes Silverstein look like a choir boy.

At 6' 11" and 275 pounds, Gray is a lumbering hulk of trouble. Colored from head to foot in tattoos, this onetime Department of Corrections state weightlifting champ revels in his ability to beat, bully, conquer and rape anyone who comes across his path. "What I've done would make a grown man sit straight up in bed at night and break out in a cold sweat," he once boasted.

whether Gray will get his day in court is questionable. At a November 6 hearing on the assault, sheriff's deputies asked that Gray remain in a holding cell rather than being brought to the courtroom. "The last time he was up here, he smashed another person's head against the wall," the deputy explained.

I agree with South Philly, you have to attack first! I read a forum on here, where the same thing happened in California. The inmate in the California Case lost his suit against the Corrections Department. The Rapist was known as the "booty bandit", and he was used by the prison officials as a means of punishing problem inmates. If you crossed the guards, they would put you in the cell with him, and he would brutally rape his cellmates. They also stated that they were both bloods.
