Lightbulb Woman to Wed 'Boys Don't Cry' Inmate!!

LINCOLN, Neb. - A Chicago woman has been granted a marriage license to marry one of the killers portrayed in the movie "Boys Don't Cry."

Justine Mirth, 32, says she can't wait to marry Tom Nissen, who is serving life in prison for the 1993 slayings of three people in a farmhouse in southeast Nebraska.

"I'm dying to go see him. I want to hold him," she said. "He's the man I love. I want to spend the rest of my life with him."

The crime inspired the award-winning 1999 movie starring Hilary Swank, who played one of the victims, 21-year-old Teena Brandon, who was born a woman but lived as a man in southeast Nebraska under the name Brandon Teena.

The couple have never met in person. Mirth and Nissen have learned about each other through long letters and scores of 15-minute phone calls — the maximum allowed by the prison.

When she saw the film, Mirth said, she identified with the characters who played Nissen and his co-defendant, John Lotter, who is on death row. She had grown up "in a small, stupid town in Indiana," she said, and escaped by running with a rough crowd.

"These were people I would hang out with in real life," she said.

Prosecutors said Teena was killed in a farmhouse, along with two witnesses, because he reported being raped by Lotter and another man after they discovered his biological identity.

How can you think you want to marry someone after only letters and 15 min phone calls, especially someone in jail?

Murderers including serial killers for some reason attract a surprisingly large "Fan Club" once in prison, including of course women who want to marry them.

Any psychologists out there who care to explain it? I'm sure it has to do with low-self esteem of the woman, a charismatic personality on the part of the murderer, and like matters.

Maybe one of the students here can use the topic for a research paper, then publish it here.... I'd be interested.

I would tell you how much that
I've missed you since you've been away
It's dangerous
It's so out of line

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

She should be imprisoned for her stupidity.

Then maybe they could hang out.
