Joseph Hyungmin Son, 40, allegedly killed his 50-year-old cellmate, who was found dead Monday afternoon at Wasco State Prison Reception Center in Kern County.

Tough to claim you did not do it when your only cell mate ends up murdered.

Be sure to read the article.

The actor played "Random Task", which is a nice pun on Odd Job, from the original Goldfinger.

Still don't remember him? Fight Scene with Random Task.

An “Odd Job” ripoff from James Bond but I’m OK with that

No witnesses that way though.

Not even a month in prison and already he kills his cell mate. Of course he is LWOPd so it doesn’t really matter. CA never goes through with the death penalty.

Maybe he was hoping for solitary?

While I think he got the sentence he deserved why is it the guy that actually raped the woman (the article specified the other guy not him) only got 17 years (plus 4 months)? Sounds to me like they both should have gotten life without parole (plus 4 months) then locked in the same cell together. Maybe then the other guy would have wound up dead.

Son/Random Task probably had to be tried, the other guy plead guilty in exchange for leniency. It’s the way the system works.

Consdiering that Ramirez is supposedly still alive nad kicking on death row, I would have to state that yes, California does not like to execute murderers, but prefers to execute babies in the womb.

The whole Austin Powers series of movies was a parody of James Bond movies.

I, for one, just do not have a problem with this fellow’s method of lowering the tax burden for the citizens who have to pay for these convict’s incarceration. They should put him in with more that we need less of.

I see you have no respect for the law or the U.S. Constitution. You'd fit in nicely with the Occupy pukes who also like to flout the law.
