    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Pamela Sharon murder 8/20/1983 Great Neck, NY *Bruce Haims convicted of her murder, sentenced to 25 years to life in prison; He is up for parole now*

From Bruce Haims appeal:
The defendant admitted that he killed the victim by beating her over the head with a shillelagh. He admitted that after having spent some time with the victim at her parents’ home, he began to fantasize about compelling the victim to submit to sexual intercourse. As the urge to fulfill this fantasy became greater, the defendant decided to commit a forcible rape.

The defendant confessed that he prepared to rape the victim as she was taking a shower. He approached the master bedroom, arming himself with the shillelagh, which he intended to use as an instrument in the enactment of his violent fantasy. He lay in wait in a hall alcove, saw the victim come out of the shower, approached her from behind, and then began to strike her repeatedly over the head. He continued unrelentingly, eventually causing the injuries which led to the victim’s death, and only stopped because she was unconscious and covered with blood.

Bruce Haims is now up for parole. For all of those who want to join in protesting his possible parole, there is a letter below that you can copy and paste (there is also one you can download if that is easier for you – it is the last link). You can either mail a copy or you can also email it to: victimservices@pap.state.ga.us Letters need to be received by March 20, 2014. Thanks to all who help!

CONFIDENTIAL VICTIM IMPACT STATEMENT

Dear Members of the Parole Board,

Please DO NOT grant parole to murderer and sexual predator Bruce H. Haims. As a concerned citizen, I am writing to protest his release because society would not be safe with him wandering free.

Haims forfeited his right to freedom after he brutally murdered Pamela Sharon by beating her to death with a club. With more than 25 blows to her body, Haims inflicted unspeakable pain and suffering on Pamela and left the entire Sharon family to suffer with lifelong grief. A violent sexual predator poses a threat to all of society and should remain behind bars for his entire life.

Knowing what we know today about recidivism and about the threats posed by high level sexual offenders, I urge you to DENY PAROLE to Bruce Haims in the name of public safety.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Your Name Here
