From Frankie (Letter 6)

Frankie - A Mexican Mafia hitman and leader of prison "booty bandits" who first proposed our gay marriage when he saw me applying antifungal ointment to the bedsores on my buttocks at the Madison Street jail, where he was held on murder charges. Now incarcerated in the super-maximum prison housing Arizona's death row.


Englandman my friend,

Why does it take you so long to answer my letters? I’m not a friend that died.
It was my older brother that died on May-26-08 from a diabetic attack. I got to talk with my older sisters. They were all crying and telling me they were sorry for not being here for me. I told them I was okay with it and that I love them no matter what.
I have 8 sisters and 1 brother left.
And I’m the baby of the family and the black sheep.

You asked me why that dumbass called me a Meat Boss. My neighborhood is called Milpas, and that’s what the dumbass was saying. I come out of the oldest gang neighborhood in Phoenix, AZ, and the biggest. It’s L.C.M. for Las Cuarto Milpas. Right in downtown Phoenix. The east side of Phoenix. But now it’s in the south side, west side, north side, and the main one is in the east side of Phoenix where I’m from.

Anything new with you? My friend, you need to get yourself a job and leave that computer alone.

I was told Friday 7-11-08 that I was clear to go to Buckeye prison where Two Tonys at. The only reason it took me so long is cuz I had two guys there that had “do not house” on me. So I had a friend talk with them and of course they took them off. You know I have one of them reach out and touch you cards. Hey now!

My friend, send me pictures…your home town, your family, your girlfriends. I thought I was already part of the family. We’re going on five years.

As for Cuban Boy, tell that queer he better write.

Give my love to your Mom, Sister & Dad.

Much love and respect,

Mr. Frankie


My trial starts August 19-2008

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. It's always hard when a close family member dies. I couldn't go back to the UK when mum passed away in February, so I know how you must be feeling.
My thoughts and wishes are with your family.

Good luck for your trial in August!

Hopefully you've taken to writing the poor guy a little more often; kinda harsh not to.

Shame as to his circumstances, and especially this - but - it seems as if he's taking it reasonably well.

Some men fall to pieces and end up worse than they were before.
