15 years of plotting and he still got it wrong..
He found his life in prison and wants to get right back to his permanent home. (Might also have a lover in there he misses).
My thought too.
Back in the late 80s I helped an acquaintance recently released from prison. We gave him our spare room, I loaned him money for tools and found him a job as a roofer. I even drove him to and from work. One day I received a call from the city jail. I went down to see him. Hed thrown a brick through a store window, sat down and waited for the police.
He was tired of freedom. In prison he was told when to wake up, when to sleep, what to wear and what to eat. He didnt have to think.
Most people seem to survive boot camp, but surviving prison is a whole nother story. We do need an alternative for those like your acquaintance to learn real life in prison rather than being taught by inmates.
A part of the problem might be as more and more law is passed more and more people are caught in the net, and become wards of the state. We don’t need no stinking wards, we need contributors if the Republic is to survive.
“I’ll just take these Huggies, and whatever cash you have in the drawer. “
You just described an ever growing percentage of this country's populace. They're happy to embrace the confines of the Nanny State.
Isnt that why the German People adopted Nazism? Its always easy to do what is told than to think for yourself.
Free food, free housing, no work, free cable, free healthcare, government control of everything. Prison a liberal’s utopia.
Parole Board chairman: They’ve got a name for people like you H.I. That name is called “recidivism.”
Parole Board member: Repeat offender!
Parole Board chairman: Not a pretty name, is it H.I.?
H.I.: No, sir. That’s one bonehead name, but that ain’t me any more.
Parole Board chairman: You’re not just telling us what we want to hear?
H.I.: No, sir, no way.
Parole Board member: ‘Cause we just want to hear the truth.
H.I.: Well, then I guess I am telling you what you want to hear.
Parole Board chairman: Boy, didn’t we just tell you not to do that?
H.I.: Yes, sir.
Parole Board chairman: Okay, then.
There was something oddly rubber stampish about that parole board. :-P
With the shortage of jobs, no transportation, no family support and a felony record at least the guy knows he will be fed and sheltered in prison. A lot of these men used to become monks, laborers, cowboys, deck hands, dock workers, etc. Now, there is no place for them to live or work. We talk about a war on women, but the truth is that there is a war on a whole generation of young men who may make one mistake and never have another chance to make anything of their lives.
He looks like my Brother-in-law’s(if you know him he probably owes you money)x-son-in-law!
All he needs is a glowing “L” over his head.
Most of the tenants are sex offenders. My friend hired a few of his tenants for his construction firm and they are hardworking people. I hired two of his tenants for my business, both sexual offenders (one a 20 year old did an Anthony Wiener to his then 17 year old gf the other a CPA had porn) but hard working people.
