Objects approaching the event horizon would not be crushed by increasing gravity, they would be broken into smaller and smaller fragments due to tidal effects. The common term is spaghettification.
For smaller mass black holes that's certainly true.

However for larger mass supermassive black holes, the tidal forces at the event horizon can be less than the tidal forces on Earth's surface, so it depends on how massive the black hole is.

I guess the question now is, Where does one go that is unfortunate enough to be pulled into (through) one?!

Hell, of course. Did you not see "The Black Hole"?

No but Ill be looking into it now!

Don't. Awful. Really, really awful.
The movie is bad but I like the sound track, and apparently so did the guy who made this video of comparing the sizes of objects like stars and planets, it's the first track in this video:

You can just listen to that and skip the movie.

If you listen closely, and think to yourself "That could be scene music from a James Bond movie", there's a reason.

Today I found and article about Nasa seeing a black hole that stopped eating. www.nytimes.com...

My question that I cannot find an answer to is: if a black hole has stopped then theoretically could we send a probe close to it to see inside it, or go into it?

Please any answers would be great.

nope. the photons cannot get out. therefore you cannot see them or anything inside the black hole event horizon.
