The Dungeon

By Credo, published on Sep 6, 2013

...morning that would irrevocably change my life, in a way that I had never expected. Because of the events of this special morning, I would meet my heart's desire, my soul mate, on our way to the Dungeons of YorkShire Mountain.

THE RIDE TO THE DUNGEON

Our ride to the hidden prison was incredible, amongst the stench and the fear, we fell head over heels in love. Looking into each others eyes we both realized, that we would never leave this confinement. Never to see the moon descend into the embrace of night, or another sun rise to shine on all YorkShire life. Would they... (more)

Propaganda is not Useful Information

By DKIdea, published on Jun 18, 2013

...or principles propagated by an organization or movement.

Now that we have a clear understanding (at least a description of such) of propaganda, let me address a particular case of the egregious usage of such...by making a statement many regard as true:There are more Black males in prison than in college.

Understand that if you agreed with that statement, that you have been misled to believe something that is currently not true. To state such as the current state of affairs...is a lie. Although it was certainly true at some point in the recent past (remember... truth,... (more)

Jobs for Felons

By Ely North, published on Mar 19, 2013

Dear Ely,

I was just released from prison, and I don’t want to go back. Ever. I’ve been looking for a job, but I can’t find one. I can’t even get an interview. Employers just won’t give me a chance – every application asks if I’ve ever been convicted of a crime. Once the employer sees that I answered “Yes,” my application goes in the trash. What am I supposed to do? I’m ready to go straight and live a respectable life, but if society doesn’t give me an opportunity to make an honest living, I’m going to have to turn back to a life of crime.

Sincerely,

Ex-Con... (more)

Interviewing a Drug Dealer

By Jennifer Stone, published on May 29, 2012

... wasn't until life got hard then the drugs were harder to leave behind. They became his way of life. However Bill was new to Kings Cross. He had gotten the door open to a drug den, why don't the police utilise these types of undercover operation.

Sammy is like many others living in a hotel cell, from morning to night. Moving room to room to hide from the police. Is this the life? In the Cross Fire, he can't get out. The drugs he uses himself blind him from reality. Next stop PRISON.

You do start to wonder if we are in the society, where the police are on the gear too?

Jail Bird Part 2

By Inmyredhead, published on Mar 24, 2012

Part 1 of this story was the easy part. It was all about the excitement and introspective adventure that I felt sure awaited me after I volunteered with a friend to stay the night in a brand new jail facility. Though there was little in the way of solitude and quiet contemplation, I certainly did experience a profound awakening of long set aside childhood memories. And this is why this is the hard part. It's easy to briefly touch on the overall experience as a whole. But going deeper into the experience reveals a more traumatic scene.

During our overnight stay at the yet untested facility,... (more)

An Experiment That Would Make A Difference

By baynurse, published on Jul 28, 2009

...is nothing short of appalling, high in fat, salt, empty carbohydrates, and high in toxic additives, and low in nutrition.  The water in jails is full of lead and chlorine, some jails allow smoking, which is full of carbon monoxide, which resonates with depression.  

So, basically, a prison is full of angry, depressed, malnourished, self loathing, individuals who are locked down without exercise or sunshine.  So what happens when they are let out?  Oh by the way, let out with no job skills, not that there are any jobs, no housing, no education, and a prison record.  So what... (more)
