Christopher Timmreck Hard Time Quotations

“The guy who I killed, man, was a really good guy. His whole name was Brian Anderson.”

“I do not believe that I’m going to be in prison for the rest of my life. I believe that I’ve got enough in me to be one of those guys that you see walking out of the courthouse, you know, on TV, on the news, ‘After such amount of years of being in prison, he got let go.’ I want to have a wife and kids, you know, a big old house, and couple of cars and a dog and wrap a white picket fence around it all someday. You know what I mean?”

“Everybody’s got some kind of way of making some money in here – whether it’s gambling on sports or maybe they’re running the tickets for sports games, you know, or buffing floors or doing legal work.”

“People do get killed in here and raped in here and robbed in here. And so, no, that’s not faking in movies.”

“Getting all touchy-feely and emotional and shit in here really ain’t something we do. So, if it’s bad news, just, well, you know, suck it up, dude.”
