Convicted right winger, New Jersey Internet shock jock Harold “Hal” Turner, who once worked as an FBI informant, claims his life is in danger now that he’s housed in federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., with notorious prisoners, the Jersey Journal reported.
“I probably won’t even see it coming,” Turner wrote in a letter to the The Jersey Journal. “They are facilitating my murder by putting me in the direct physical presence of the very terrorists I defended the nation from.”
A Bureau of Prisons spokesman told the Journal: “All inmates in the custody of the BOP are designated at facilities, housing units and management programs consistent with the inmate’s security needs.”
After jurors twice deadlocked, Turner was convicted at a third trial last December of threatening the lives of three U.S. Court of Appeals judges in Chicago. He was sentenced to 33 months in prison.
Turner, 48, was charged in June 2009 for writing Internet postings proclaiming “outrage” over the pr0-gun control, handgun decision by U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook and Judges Richard Posner and William Bauer and wrote: “Let me be the first to say this plainly: These Judges deserve to be killed.”
His postings included photographs, phone numbers, work address, and room numbers of these judges. It also included a photo of the building they worked in and a map with its location, authorities said.
