Convicted felon Fleece Johnson, known to fellow inmates as the “Booty Warrior,” is set for release from prison soon. Johnson received notoriety for raping his fellow inmates when he appeared on the MSNBC TV show “Lockup.” During the taped interview, he explained in detail how he enjoyed “booty” and how he picked out his victims. Notably, Johnson stated that he enjoyed choosing prisoners who had sagging pants; to Johnson, it was an invitation to rape. Johnson is quoted as saying, “In prison booty is more important than water.” (see below)

In the MSNBC interview, Johnson explained how being locked up with men, who are hard and have sexual desires means “Someone was going to have to give up some booty.” Johnson was graphic and proud of his exploits. The interview became a pop culture phenomenon and was the source of comedy including an animated segment on the show “The Boondocks.” (see below)

Now, Johnson is scheduled to be released from prison in September 2015 and the Kentucky ‘Booty Warrior’ will be back on the streets. Johnson has been locked up in maximum security prison since 1979 and his raping of fellow inmates is no joke. Now, seeing him walking down the street will be a source of fear for all to experience.
