Mass-murderer, Peter Sutcliffe, aka the Yorkshire Ripper is set, at age 70, to convert to Islam to get the protection of Muslim gangs after being moved to a mainstream prison.
Peter was transferred from Broadmoor secure hospital to the notorious HMP Frankland. The prison that is home to some of the UK’s deadliest prisoners.
Sutcliffe was sent to the Berkshire Institution in 1984, after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. However, a tribunal has most recently ruled that he no longer needs treatment.
DEATH THREATS CAME IMMEDIATELY
Since being moved to the Durham jail, Peter has received death threats from fellow inmates.
HMP Frankland is ruled by gangs and an inmate is either in a white gang, a black gang or an Asian gang. No grey area. It’s one group of thugs or the other.
And there are a few rules that go along with that rule. For example, if you are a child killer, a rapist or a mass murderer, the only gang that’s going to let you in are the Muslims. Oh, and one more rule. You have to convert to Islam for them to take you in! No grey area there either.
Not long after his arrival, a Muslim inmate approached Sutcliffe and informed him he was a marked man and would likely be dead inside the month unless he joined a gang and got some protection. He was also told he would get access to a special diet if he converted and further perks of being able to refuse certain types of work and extra time outside his cell.
The same Muslim gang that was now offering Sutcliffe safe haven is said to have taken child murderer Levi Bellfield, 48, under their wing.
Bellfield is serving a whole life sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, 19-year-old Marsha McDonnell and Amelie Delagrange, 22. He is said to have converted while spending time in another prison and now goes by the name of Yusuf Rahim.
ON THE OTHER HAND
Child rapist Mitchell Harrison, 23, who had no gang affiliation at the time, was disemboweled by fellow inmates in 2011. Michael Parr, 32, and Nathan Mann, 23, used homemade weapons to slash Harrison’s throat and then proceeded to eviscerate him inside his own cell.
Sutcliffe has allegedly been told that the same fate is out there waiting for him as well.
Peter was convicted in 1981 of the brutal murder of 13 women and the attempted murder of seven more, mostly prostitutes, over a five-year period.
He struck across West Yorkshire and Manchester, with his first attack in 1975
Despite being interviewed numerous times by police he was able to kill, and attempt to kill, repeatedly.
When finally caught, he claimed God had instructed him to murder the women, with the voice emanating from the gravestone of a Polish man in the cemetery where he worked as a grave digger.
He was sentenced to be held at Broadmoor after his initial diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia, but a health tribunal ruled, last December, that he could be transferred to a maximum security prison, because he no longer needed treatment for his mental illness.
He spends his time studying for his conversion.
