Well Rick, that is a well balanced view, with one flaw. I quote: "In my opinion Reg deserved to get life because he murdered someone and he got caught" I would like to know what you mean by this. If he hadn't been caught then what would he have deserved?

Since Reggie's release I have been following this site with interest. What interests me most is not the thousands of well wishers who have posted their condolences on this page, but the few who have done the opposite. So I thought that it's now time to set the record straight about crime and punishment from my viewpoint. In the past I have served a number of prison sentences for violent offences of which I am not proud but nor am I ashamed, I do regret my past but only because I often wonder if it will catch up on me. Some of the mailers on this site talk about an evil man who deserves to rot in hell or should have been hanged along with his brother over 30 years ago. They also commonly express their disbelief that so many people support what the Krays did which is reflected by the feedback on this site. Firstly can I just say that this is a site specifically set up for that purpose, the Krays were world famous and only some 11000 people have visited this site. Secondly i'd like to tell you about the sort of people the Krays killed and why. It's probably true that some people that suffered under their reign may not have deserved to pay protection money, but then I pay council tax and various other taxes and I don't feel that the police have ever looked after my interests partly because i'm a reformed criminal. In fact on one occasion I was arrested for theft simply because I was knocked over by a motorcycle courier. In short I prevented him from escaping by taking his keys. When the police arrived they saw him throwing bricks at me, but because I have previous I got nicked. (The case was eventually thrown out after five months of stress.) The Krays were convicted of Two murders between them, George Cornell was shot by Ronnie and Jack McVitie stabbed by Reg. George was a member of another highly feared gang run by a family known as the Richardsons. George was a man who prided himself in fearing nothing and when Ronnie shot him they were both laughing. Jack was a junkie who once threw a woman out of a car and paralysed her for life. Reg didn't want to kill Jack but Ronnie practically forced him to because Ronnie had killed George. This suggests that there were only Two direct involvements in murder by the twins. The media have speculated on others most notably Frank Mitchell who was shot under orders from the twins. Franks family blame the twins for ruining their lives but the truth was it was the police and Franks fathers false belief that honesty pays that were responsible for ruining Franks life. You see when he was a boy he stole a bicycle like alot of boys do and his did took him to the local police station to own up to his wrong doing. The police arrested and charged him and that was where Franks life ended. After that he was in prison more than out and eventually got life though not for murder. During his time in Dartmoor Ronnie got to know him and decided to help out by arranging his premature release. Again Reggie was opposed to this course of action. Frank proved to be a liability, he was a wanted man hidden away in a flat in Dagenham. He wanted to be part of the Kray empire but in reality was a child in a heavyweight wrestlers body. He became agitated and threatened their empire, they didn't want to but had no choice except to kill him. Had he lived he would probably have spent the rest of his dysfunctional life in Broadmoor. Speaking of prison, it's not fun and it's mostly full of imberciles. As already mentioned i'm a reformed criminal who has spent 10 years trying against all the odds to better myself. I didn't personally meet Reg but know many of his friends and others who have met him, especially in his final years. I know that sentence hurt him in a way that anyone who hasn't been to prison can never know and I know he was not the man some believe to be. Nevertheless he was stubborn, his intense honour and love for his mentally ill twin is what is responsible for Reggie's fate. When Ronnie died six years ago I was glad, not because I hated him but because I thought it was the only realistic chance of Reg getting parole. Ronnie was sick, we all knew that and he couldn't have ever been released. In my opinion Reg deserved to get life because he murdered someone and he got caught, but he didn't deserve to serve 32 years, not for Jack the hat, he deserved to serve about half that with maybe a few more for his fame and notoriety. Either way he should have been out soon after his twins death at the very latest. I hape this message is perceived as a balanced view that serves all from all walks of life especially those people who see fit to anonymously attack a dead man based on a somewhat narrow view of the whole picture. God Bless

My deepest condolences go out to reggies family and friends. I myself am only twenty years old and have just recently been released from prison myself. Whilst there i met an adult who knew reggie in another prison, he only spoke to me for five minutes. Yet it was enough to show me that reggie, his brothers and his whole family were well respected and loved. To the Kray Brothers: you will all be greatly missed and never will you be forgotten. At last u are reunited. Rest In Peace.

RIP Reg, thinking of you always. I never did get round to writing to, I kept thinking right I must write a letter to Reg, time passed and I still never did it. Now that you have passed away I can't tell you how gutted and upset I am. There is one thing I have learnt from it though is don't keep putting things off - take time out and write a letter, make a phone call , visit friends, etc life too short. I am sure we will meet someday. Love to you always. Jxxxxx

My sincere condolonces go out to the remaining names in the Kray family. Reggie was, some might say, a bad man. Perhaps he was. I defiantly dont think so. He did what he had to do to make his name and money. The Krays were a feared name and still would be to this day and I respect everything they did for themselves, there families and each other in the Firm. Some will say "Thank god they didnt have kids!" I say they should've. I lov the Kray and everthing they did. they ruled the East End and were true Gangsters in there time. I remember watching Ronnies funeral on the TV. When Reggie stepped out all shackled up in cuffs and millions of coppers around him, instead of booing the man they cheered him and wished him all the best. He shouldve been let out a long time ago because of his illness. But they are all "what ifs" Rest in peace Reggie, Ronnie and Charlie. Not forgetting the lovely mother Violet Kray.

Freedom comes in many ways. The injustice of those many years spent behind bars can never be forgiven or forgotten by right minded people. The crime was committed(nobody denies that) but the continued refusal to release Reggie and Ronnie showed how unjust and corrupt the British legal system really is. R.I.P. Charlie, Ron and Reg. PS. Before any more wasters start writing their vile comments about "The Krays" on this page, stop and think, how many people will even consider the time of day when you leave this world? Undoubtedly not many!!! Your very words show that you are friendless nothings.

My heart goes out to everyone who knew Reg in this sad time. I wasn't there for the funeral, but i wanted to be. I didn't find out when it was until it was too late. Lack of news reports. They delibrately played Reggies's funeral down. It was their final insult to the legend that is the Krays. He didn't know me, but i wished he did, now i will never know the great Reggie Kray. It's a sad loss that will touch the heart of millions. To all his critic, you are only jealous that no matter what you do, in goodness or in bad, you will never ever be rememberd as much as Reggie Kray, or the rest of his family for that matter. Be strong Roberta atleast his last days were spent in freedom, something that he's no doubt dreamed of in all the years of incarceration. I find it an honour that he chose to live his last in Norwich. I did actually pass the "Town House" at the time when he had to cancel his press confrence due to ill health. Now i wish i would have gone in. The only thing stopping me was i didn't want to bother him. Im not religious, but god bless Reggie Kray. Rest in Peace Legend.

Words cannot express the way the people of GREAT BRITAIN feel at the loss of a gentleman. Your freedom came too late, but at long last you can sleep in peace and rest with your brother Ron. To Roberta and the family, my deepest sympathy goes out to you on such a sad loss. To all you narrow minded morons who have been so ill mannered and added tasteless messages, remember this: "Your day will come."

I am only seventenn years old, but still I would still like to pay my respects to a true gentleman. After taking the time to read the books and watch the films about The Twins, I can honestly say that it is possibly the biggest waste of two human beings imaginable. I feel that The Twins are the most interesting people ever to grace our country and feel for the way that Reg had to live on his own for all those years especially when Ron had passed away.

Being a member of Reggie's supporter club, I was gutted to hear he had passed away, so shortly after his long awaited release, but at least he did die a free man, even though his freedom was well over due, he got it in the end, its just a shame he could'nt of enjoyed it, many thoughts to his wife, at what must be a very difficult time in her life.

It's amazing how a sad death inspires the worst kind of person to air their 'views' about the person whose died. These people should shut up and keep their thoughts to themselves. Ronnie & Reggie served their time twice over, and should have been released years ago. There are evil people today, murderers of children and old people who serve minimum terms in jail. A book of condolence should mean condolence. Not a soap box for morons with limited intelligence.
