I know if I got away with stabbing or shooting someone way back in the 80,s I wouldn't want one of my friends to write about it in a book cuzz u might be a suspect and the police might just not have the proof they need to arrest u and the book might give them what they need to lock u up

Didn't Mark Fuhrman (Furman), the LAPD detective from the OJ Simpson murder trial write a book that ended up solving some cold cases?

He didnt catch anytime for his book, he caught time for being convicted of unrelated crimes that had nothing to do with the book. The the in his case used his book against him to show that he was still committing the things that he wrote about in his past. A bit different.

and, if i might add, 'caught some time'is bit of an understatement too, given the fact that he was sentenced to 126 years in prison....

I didn't know it was that many years. Sounds like they got him for some murders, but the time he received had nothing to do with the book. They used the book against him though, but I doubt that the jury that convicted him relied much on what he wrote in it.

Yes. 126 years is absurd. But if you are willing to do something that risky at age 37, while you already have two strikes....well, you are either very stupid or very desperate.

NEVER put anything in writing that you don't want other people to know
