Skip to comments.Scotland: Gran killer turns Muslim to dodge work (converts to Islam for special treatment)
Posted on 08/15/2011 2:46:59 AM PDT by Stoat
Evil David Millar - who stabbed frail 82-year-old Lucy Marshall to death - will skip his duties in the laundry because of his new faith.
He will be excused from work on Fridays so he can attend prayers.
And he's told pals he'll not have to do chores during the holy month of Ramadan.
The 28-year-old will also receive special halal meals such as curries at Dumfries prison.One jail source said: "He works in the laundry but wants to use his new-found faith to get out of it.
"He's told a few of his cronies he won't have to work for the whole of Ramadan, which us basically like getting a month off his duties.
"It's so see-through."
JJail sources claim Millar - who was just 14 when he knifed Lucy in a Buckfast-fuelled frenzy in 1997 in Cowdenbeath, Fife - showed no previous interest in Islam before his conversion.
But it's believed the fitness fanatic thought a Muslim diet would aid his weight training.
One guard said: "It came out of the blue.
"But we're duty-bound to help once a prisoner decides to become Muslim."
Millar - who was detained without limit of time - married behind bars after meeting wife Sheree Malik, 29, on an online dating website for cons.
The SPS said it could not comment on individual cases. /p>
LLast month we revealed how wife killer Malcolm Webster, 52, became a Muslim convert because he fancied better grub.
It may not work out so well for him. Some Muslims take it pretty seriously after all. He could get some pretty serious beatings from them if he does not take it seriously.
Imagine if he should decide that the bacon in the mess hall smells very good some morning and he eats a slice. His fellow Muslims just might beat the crap out of him.
If he doesnt pray to Mecca 5 times a day they just might beat the crap out of him.
If he gets tired of all of the requirements of being a faithful Muslim and tells them he has converted to Christianity they just might kill him.
Suppose he has a jail house love affair with some young new inmate and is caught by his fellow Muslims he could end up dead.
Agreed, and considering the reputation for easygoing environments that many UK (and US) prisons have, I’m guessing that muslim inmates may well have access to news and perhaps internet. They may not take it well when they read the Sun story, or this FR thread, and develop the feeling that he’s exposing their special privileges to the world as well as bringing worldwide derision upon their ‘religion’.
We’ve all read stories of how ‘justice’ among inmates is done inside prisons, and it’s one of the many things that remind most of us that prisons are places that we don’t want to be in.
Oh STOP already!! Muslims will not beat him. They are a “Religion of Peace”.
Slammies comprise a bullying, jealous religion the likes of which the world does not know. Pulling back away from them will not be trivial. If the idjit is lucky some prominent imam will declare he never meant it. If unlucky he’ll have to live out his life in solitary protective confinement.
Better food and less work. Under these circumstances I would be tempted to go Muslim too. Only drawback is prostrating to a false god 5x daily
As far as thinking about the conversion, prolly as much as he thought about how wild he’d get on that Buckfast hyper caffeinated wine.
As if the lad had any, heh, integrity?
“after meeting wife Sheree Malik, 29, on an online dating website for cons.”
If *I* were single, that’s the very first place I’d go look for a man.
I’m noticing a number of YouTube videos where various thugs, yobs, ne’er do wells, etc attempt to set a record in drinking an entire bottle of that stuff in just a few seconds.
Search Youtube for “Buckfast” for some frightening and sad societal commentary. Many are obviously just young kids.
I’m guessing that it’s much like Thunderbird or other “bum wines” here in the USA. Probably makes you go blind after a while.
There’s a whole subculture of women who are attracted to men in prison. I don’t know anything about it but I’m guessing that they share various sad and / or unsavory traits. It may well be a psychiatric condition.
It’s likened to quaffing eight cans of Coca-Cola along with a potent wine. The stuff was invented by monks, who doubtless sipped it sparingly with consummate Christian self control (how many monk wildings have you heard about lately?)
i’d call them bully-holics
I must be lacking that particular psychosis.
Call me crazy, but I’ve always tended towards *avoiding* criminals as romantic prospects.
Being ignorant of such things, I Googled it;
All I can say is...*bleah!*.
Aw come on Scotland just let the guy out like you did the terrorist who blew up the jet, and stop pretending you want to punish him!
The lowdown: http://www.bumwine.com/others.html
Well, there was that whole ‘Inquisition’ episode.
Sounds good and to-the-point.
I would imagine that Buckfast played a prominent role in the recent rioting in the UK.
Undoubtedly, there will be multimillion-pound studies to analyze that question as well as numerous laws passed which will ban or tax high-quality wines for responsible people while maintaining the status quo for the Buckfast crowd.
I’d be hesitant to blame caffeinated wines for the Inquisition. Seems more like banal political aspirations that pretended to the protective cloak of the church.
I reckon I need to get out more.
I’ve only ever heard of MD 20/20, Thunderbird and Ripple.

Could be just because I really, -really- hate the taste of wine.
[and that stems back to the days when my dad was into finding out which edibles could or couldn’t be turned into wine...it was the dreaded “Banana Experiment” that did it]
That was a joke son, Ah say, a *joke*.
Me too. Apparently, inarticulate, violent people with frightening facial tattoos, poor hygeine and no job prospects among decent people make good life partners, at least according to this particular crowd of 'prison groupies'. I would never have known.
I'm sure that some militant muslim group will bring suit against the Scottish government on his behalf. Any resistance to such a suit will be characterized as 'racism' and he'll be released as a victim of institutionalized racism, along with a healthy lifelong stipend courtesy of Scotland's taxpayers..
And so the template unfolds again and again and again.
You would be astounded how many women fall for cons, particularly violent ones. Death row inmates receive thousands of love letters every year. There are 100 women (in the UK alone) who have married men on death row in US prisons. I believe there is even a technical term for the condition - the name of which escapes me at the moment.
Had the World Wide Web been available, it would have been much easier for him to find workable recipes for exotic wines such as banana.
My local Walgreens carries a sweetened red wine called Liberty Creek. This stuff is like a sweet punch.
OMG!...are you old enough to remember that stupid 60s/70s game called something like “Dream Date”?
At the end, you opened a little door and there stood the “man of your dreams”.
I’m picturing the Mr Right in your description...;-D
Makes sense. Islam was created by a bandit to govern and expand his gang. It should, by its nature, appeal to criminals and convicts.
what is Buckfast
No no no!
“. I believe there is even a technical term for the condition - the name of which escapes me at the moment.”
I have virtually no sweet tooth at all.
That banana wine was more like rocket fuel.
It tasted great and was sweet and smooth and after a glass of it, you suddenly realized that you were legally blind and then came the room-spinning and barfing.
If you threw a little bit on a campfire, it looked like Napalm going off.
Thank God he get bored with it all fairly quickly.
I always got sent into the woods to pick blackberries, raspberries, elderberries and whatnot.
Chiggers are no fun.
OMG...there’s even a book about it.
I think that checking into Islam is akin to checking into the Hotel California, you can check out any time you want, but you can never leave... alive.
"Eyes a Muslim Brutha, I done been manifested by a miracle, Eyes dont eat no swine, eyes dont drink no wine. "
Real wine can only be made from red Muscadine grapes from the Carolinas, all else is mere vanity. Try Duplin vineyard’s Carolina Red if you want to know what real wine tastes like.
I am now introduced to Buckfast fortified wine and “Ned culture”. Wonderful. This guy seems unlikely to last a Muslim. The violence part will be fine but the wino bit won’t cut it.
Yes...a rather disturbing phenomenae for most people really, including feminists (or even anti-sexists); creationists (or even evolutionists who believe we can rise above our genes); Rationalists and Romantics alike.
The memory of the last stuff I drank *decades* ago is seared...*seared* into my brain.
I learn something new every day.
[but a lot of it, I wish I *hadn’t*]
Oof, the banana “wine” sounds like a fortified liquor. Normal fermented wines don’t have sufficient alcohol for napalm effects. Even liquors used for flambe’ing items like cheese or pancakes are higher than 100 proof and are first warmed for optimal effect, rather than being used cold at room temperature.
My dad was “self taught” and “normal fermented wines” were probably *not* what was coming out of those 5 gallon carboys in the basement....:))
He came by honest, though.
His dad died of lead poisoning on Rabble Run in the 30s.
[high octane corn liquor business....it must be genetic]
I’ve sometimes felt that sheer jealousy and liberal aspiration is why Uncle Sam continues to insist that all alcoholic beverage distilleries be licensed instead of being sanctioned in small quantity operations as DIY projects (like beer brewing and wine fermentation).
But there’s probably a good health reason for regulating alcoholic beverage distilleries. Depending on what’s fermented and how, there are fermentation congeners of substances that are more and less volatile than ethanol, some which in small quantities add flavor, but some downright poisonous. These would all be evenly mixed in and diluted in a single fermented batch of beer or wine, but distillation will isolate them depending on where in the run they are condensed. On the light side, coming out first, is methanol which is the make you go blind stuff. On the heavy side, coming out last, are fusel oils which can cause digestive upset. If you don’t know what you’re doing you can badly poison yourself and others.
