Darren Sharper Getting Special Treatment In Prison Makes Me Question Why He Even Tried To Appeal His Sentence
BSO- For a time, Hanson was in a tier with former Saints player and sex offender Darren Sharper, where sources familiar with the jail say the two had access to an Xbox gaming system 24 hours a day. Hanson has since been moved into another tier. Though the tier was built to hold 10 prisoners, he is the sole occupant.
Strain has refused to answer questions about whether Hanson or Sharper has received favorable treatment or about specific jail policies. Instead, he issued a statement saying that the jail has been recognized at the state and federal levels for outstanding operations and practices and is a model in the field of corrections.
Remember when the fat kid in 'Billy Madison' is talking about how excited he was for high school? Billy's reaction in that moment is exactly the type of thing that Darren Sharper needs right now. Ya know, a little something like this...
The guy basically sexually assaulted an entire county's worth of people. If his prison life consists of playing a bunch of 'Madden' and reminiscing of the glory days then he should probably be begging to remain there as long as possible. If his daily itinerary consists of Netflixin' and chillin' then those bars are far more forgiving than society will be. Don't get me wrong, it's fucked up that Darren Sharper - your "favorite" rapist's favorite rapist - is getting preferential treatment just because he has a ton of interceptions, double digit touchdowns, and a Super Bowl to his name. However, it's not all that surprising. What is surprising is that he doesn't realize how lucky he is to be staying in the prison equivalent of a lavish studio apartment. If he thinks getting out in 9 years instead of getting out in 15 years is beneficial then he clearly don't realize that living life as a gamer is better than living life as a sexual predator. The only things he is missing out here are sex and booze, and considering he's not allowed within 1,000 feet of a bar or liquor store and wears a boner monitor, I would have to imagine that being a career couch potato is his best case scenario. The grass is always greener - especially when you probably haven't seen grass since your imprisonment - but if I had a word of advice for Darren Sharper it would be to stay there...stay as lonnnng as you can!
