Charles Bronson, Britain’s most dangerous prisoner, launches clothes range from jail

April 30, 2010 | by | 7 Comments

Notorious wild-man inmate Charles Bronson sparked outrage after he launched his own – CLOTHING range.

Vicious Bronson, 58, drew the graffiti-style designs while serving life-sentences for a string of brutal attacks on prison officers.

The t-shirts include chilling messages such as ”fight until you die” and ”psychopath” next to images of Bronson’s shaven head.

But the clothes – which could be sold in the high street – have sparked outrage among victims’ rights groups.

A spokesman for The National Victims’ Association said: ”I would say the overwhelming majority of victims of crime will be astonished and thoroughly depressed that one of the most violent criminals in the prison system is allowed to engage with the British public in this way.”

Bronson sparked outrage earlier this month after another piece of his artwork was displayed on the London Underground.

The controversial hand-drawn work showed a man with three different faces poking out of a straight jacket and was displayed at Angel tube station in North London.

Bronson has been dubbed ‘Britain’s most dangerous criminal’ after first being jailed for robbery in 1974.

On occasions he has taken hostages, staged rooftop protests and has been forced to spend much of his prison life in solitary confinement related because of his appalling behaviour behind bars.

His actions behind bars include wounding with intent, criminal damage, grievous bodily harm, false imprisonment, blackmail and making threats to kill.

He is currently being held as a Category A prisoner at the high security Wakefield jail where he follows a supreme fitness regime which can still see him complete more than 172 press ups in a minute.

The range of 12t-shirts in black, white and red colours and show pictures of fists and silhouetted figures.

They were designed by LA fashionista Joseph Randle and incorporate Bronson’s painting and verses of his poetry.

Bronson teamed with martial arts teacher Dave Taylor to launch the t-shirts and could be sold in high street stores around the country.

Dav, from Warndon Villages, Worcs., said: ”Everybody knows what he’s does and why he’s in prison so people can make up their own minds about the clothes.

”I’ve become very good friends with Charles and I speak on the phone to him all the time.
”People don’t realise he’s a very good artist and poet so we decided to incorporate some of his work into a clothing range.”

Bronson added: ”Dave is now a true loyal friend, a great man I admire and respect. Our connection is brotherhood.”

    Charlie should be out by now, all his writing and art is occupying him until he does get out. he has been a model prisoner for many years, and even screws who see him on a daily basis confirm this. HE should be let out to live out his life, he would be on licence, so that means he will be watched etc, so why keep him in any longer ? he's done his crimes and done his time, let him go now !

    i have followed charlie for 30 years now since i was borstal tearaway,i have known charlie personally for 8 years,i have also had his son mike spend time at my home,as i myself had a lot of hardship throughout 14 years in many prison blocks,i know only very well how the home office conspiracy works towards inmates who seem to be or who are classed to be some kind of serious threat to them,once those bastards have stamped their brutal authority on you,you then become a label for life as is the case with charlie,myself and many others who are in and also out of prison,at the end of the day charlie has served well beyond his time so why is he still being illegally locked up,you see britain is renouned for having some of the toughest prisons and inmates in the world,charlie in their minds must be the home office hero,the prison motto,the important prize,the greatest mascott the home office has ever had,to release charlie means they no longer hold the above rank n status,they then have nothing to cling to,dont they realize that they are breaking the fucking law by keeping charlie illegally locked up,like everyone knows charlie has only ever retaliated against the prison bully,he hasnt killed,murdered,raped or anything else as bad,he is a normal human being who only now wants to prove himself to the good,i thought this was supposed to be the idea of the system,release those who have changed their bad behaviour to the good and who have co-operated with the system on their terms,the only people who should be treated with hatred and contempt and locked up are scum like huntley and whiting,these dirty low life rats are treated better than charlie in prison,the system condones their crimes and licks their arses while they make charlie suffer,why is this the case,are our prisons being run by a bunch of total mental cases and they wont admit that,there is nothing wrong with charlie and many other men would have also ripped the roofs of broadmoor prison and kicked a few bullying screws asses along the way so home office get fucking real and give charlie what you now owe him,HIS FREEDOM
