Donna Hylton was giving a speech about civil rights at Manhattanville College in New York in early April where she complained about the harsh life in prison.
Hylton told graphic stories about how tough life was in prison and complained that no one should be treated the way she was when imprisoned.
However, it seemed to some in the audience that Hylton managed to forget the crime that she was convicted of when talking about truly heinous experiences. It turns out that Ms. Hylton has a past that she failed to mention during her speech.
Here’s how the Daily Caller described the crime that Ms. Hylton’s committed and was sent to prison for.
In 1985, Hylton along with three men and three other women kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and held him for ransom before eventually killing him. Hylton and her comrades starved, burned and tortured Vigliarolo. They forcibly sodomized him with a 3-foot steel pole. As noted in a 1995 Psychology Today article, when asked about forcibly sodomizing the victim with the steel pole, one of Hylton’s accomplices replied: “He was a homo anyway.”
With that kind of background, it’s not surprising that Hylton is in demand as a speaker at progressive rallies that complain about life in prison. Perhaps the best point to make would be that if you don’t want to experience prison life, then don’t commit crimes.
