Real Stories Of 'Hide And Seek' Going Horribly Wrong

Games are a great way to pass the time, especially during our current lockdown situation. They provide an opportunity for friends and families to bond, whether they're played in person, online or via video chat (unless it's Monopoly, which, for the sake of peace in the home, we wouldn't recommend during lockdown). But being in lockdown means that some games, such as hide and seek, are harder to play. After all, how many times can you hide in the same three spaces? Oh, how we took it for granted. As a throwback, an Ask/Reddit thread asking people to share stories of how their games of 'hide and seek' went horribly wrong, before coronavirus took over the world of course. It revealed how quickly games can go from a bit of innocent fun, to horribly wrong. Here are some of the most shocking stories.

Story Of A Man Sentenced To Life Without Parole For Stealing $9

The justice system has failed many, many unfortunate souls. Including Willie Simmons, who was sentenced to life without parole, in 1982, for stealing $9. 

Investigative journalist Beth Shelburne has brought Simmons' story into the spotlight when sharing this man's story via Twitter. Not only was Willie Simmons sentenced to life for something so ridiculous, but he has also been and still is currently imprisoned in one of the most notorious prisons in Alabama. 

Alabama Legislature passed something called the "Habitual Felony Offender Act" to crack down on repeat criminals, back in 1977. And journalist Shelburne is here to shed some light on just some of the injustice created by this "Habitual Felony Offender Act."

Pretty scary, wouldn't you say?
