Sadistic child killer Jason Owen has converted to Islam behind bars to gain protection from Muslim prison gangs. One of the three people jailed over the death of Baby P who suffered 50 injuries, including a broken back, before he died in August 2007 at the age of 17 months.The attacks took place while Owen, a convicted arsonist and crack addict was lodging with his brother Steven Barker and the boy’s mother Tracey Connelly in Tottenham, north London.
Jason Owen was initially freed on licence in 2011 after serving half his six-year sentence for causing or allowing Peter Connelly to die. Convert Owen found himself back behind bars after breaching the conditions of his parole. The father of Owen and Barker described the pair as monsters who he wanted nothing to do with.
Muslim prison gangs are becoming a problem within the British prison system and causing a great deal of resentment with other inmates. Prisoners claim they get special treatment from the authorities such as banning pictures of the George Cross to appease the Muslim inmates. The Muslim prison gangs believe in strength by numbers and offer prisoners who would normally need to be segregated for the nature of their crimes protection to convert to convert to Islam.Something else that has angered the prisoners seeing convert paedophiles and rapists walking around knowing they have the gangs protection instead of being locked up in a segregated sex offenders wing.
HMP Stafford is a Cat C prison. Members of the Rochdale grooming gang are also held there.
