The ghost abd the Cadillac:http://pub26.bravenet.com/forum/static/ ... 8&cmd=show
"In reading Eddie's blog further I found a striking similarity between the stories of Cadillac and Casper the unfriendly ghost. Here are excerpts from his disturbing stories. I hope you can sleep after reading this. http://eddiegriffinbasg.blogspot.com/search?q=Casper
Casper the unfriendly ghost:
Speaking from experience, nobody likes to be roused out of their sleep by an armed robber or murderer.
One morning in my prison cell, I was paid a visit by Casper, the Unfriendly Ghost. They called him Casper, because he had killed 10 men in Atlanta Federal Prison. Nobody ever saw him. He left no evidence, other than the slit throat of his victims. Over a period of years, during the 1970s, the FBI never caught him. That is how he got the nickname Casper, the Unfriendly Ghost.
Doing time in a super-maximum security prison can be draining. There was always tension in the air and threats of violence all around. And every night, when I returned to my cell, I was totally fatigue and exhausted. My only reprieve was sleep, an escape for the mind, into a painless abyss. But even in the twilight world, there is the dragon.
Out of another world, I was called out of my sleep at the touch of a sharp object at my throat, and immediately I tumbled out of bed clutching the arm of a hand with eagle claws. It was the hand of a man who had sharpened his fingernails into hardened talons like that of an eagle or a falcon.
The dawn had not yet broken. It was chow time. All the cell doors were open. And, I had overslept. Now I was wrestling for my life against a man with a claw for a hand, a convicted murderer.
To make a long story short, we wrestled to an exhausted standoff. He warned me to never oversleep again. And, that was when he told me the story of Casper. He was the infamous killer of 10 inmates who all overslept, and was attacked early in the morning before men emerged from their cells for breakfast.
Strange that we would become friends and he would become one of my trainers. Every morning thereafter, before day, he appeared at my cell door, checking to see if I was awake and alert. From there, we would drink honey, run 10 miles around the track, barefooted on jagged rocks, lift weights, and punch the punching bag until our knuckles bled. And, after all this, he would come at me in fury, and say, “Stop me from killing you.”
He had a killer’s instinct and he thirst for it. And, there was little doubt in my mind that he would kill me, if I slacked off one bit, if I slumbered just a little, got too comfortable, or folded my arms to get some rest. He would kill me at the drop of a hat pin.
So, this is how I learned not to oversleep.
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep, so shall poverty come upon you like an armed man. (Proverbs 24:33)
I would be the survivor who came out of prison alive. But my counterpart died.
My counter-part was Raymond Smith-el, a Moorish Science of America gladiator, known as the Sword of Justice, street named “Cadillac”.
Cadillac laughed. He always laughed in the face of his enemies. And, there were times when his psychotic laughter caused even me to quiver. To hear him laugh was not good, not good at all for somebody.http://eglibraryreferences.blogspot.com ... iator.html
So we have in both stories a stealthy cold blooded killer and although both are his training partners he fears both but considers them his friends.
In my opinion Casper may be Chappelle. Both Casper and Chappelle are said to be convicted killers and friends of Cadillac. Remember this from Tom's Bio.
"On November 22, 1981, at 7:15 p.m. guards discovered the body of Robert M. Chappelle, a convicted killer and member of the D.C. Blacks prison gang."
The Casper killing were in the 70's and stopped after his transfer to Marion where he was killed!
Sleep must have also been difficult for Tom with these two men lurking around. It gives me the creeps!! "
