  • Government Name: Torvos Simpson
  • Register Number: 47110-078
  • Age:35
  • Time Served:20 years
  • Home Town:Dallas, TX (by way of Los Angeles, CA)
  • Sentence:LIFE (sentenced to LIFE as a juvenile)
  • Current Charge:Carjacking
  • Alias:Eleven
  • Release Date:LIFE
  • Prison Affiliation:Blood (59 Brim)
  • Circle of Influence: Massacre
  • Institution:USP Lewisburg (Special Management Unit)
  • My main focus, purpose and agenda is to somehow get society more involved with today’s youth and to, maybe, penetrate the minds of those adolescents wise enough to perceive and utilize valuable information. This could have a major effect on where you choose to spend the rest of your life.
  • Torvos Simpson

    As I now surpass a consistent two decades of incarceration I have yet to see a positive decline in  statistics. Our youth continue to flood these prisons. I am a statistic of youth incarceration. I am currently fighting a juvenile life without parole sentence. After seven different prisons in six different states I speak from experience when saying this system remains relentless in its focus and aim and does not show any sign of slowing down soon. I grew beyond the bitterness and physical... READ MORE

  • Mass Incarceration: What is Going On?

    “You must realize what is actually going on before you can effectively deal with it.” – Ralpha Now the question is, what exactly is going on in our communities, in our schools, and within the American justice system that has our youth dying and being incarcerated at an alarming rate? As if the violence stemming from gang-related activity and drug-related incidents is not enough, young black males are also dying at the hands of the very same white police officers assigned to...

  • Back to Action

    I am once again in the Special Management Unit at USP Lewisburg among some new and some familiar faces. Though unfortunate, we are trained for all conditions and circumstances and have adopted the mentality that nothing is too much. My court situation, trying to gain my freedom after being given a Life sentence as a juvenile, is giving way to light, but slow in its progress. I’ve waited this long and have definitely learned patience in these times. The people must understand that many... READ MORE

  • Mass Incarceration of African Americans

    Me and one of the Vice Lord brothers were recently having a conversation about the government’s “Agenda” when the topic of the 13th Amendment arose. The government’s agenda stems from the 13th Amendment. This is the Amendment that abolishes slavery “as appears”. There is a clause in this Amendment that is seldom mentioned. It is the part that says after forbidding slavery “except as punishment for a crime”. This part of the 13th Amendment should... READ MORE

  • Snitches and Snitching- Testimonies From The Yard

    November 25th of 2013 will mark twenty years I’ve been incarcerated. What I’ve noticed over the years, during my twenty years on various prison yards, more than anything else besides the rise in incarceration of black men, is a gradual and steady increase of individuals who are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their actions and do their time without assisting the government to destroy the next family. So many of these young men are often sent by the same government to... READ MORE

  • Juvenile Life Without Parole- The New Hurdle

    We salute the comrades here and abroad. Respect to those who fought before us. Those who fought for a common cause and are no longer remembered as they should be. My greatest admiration, honor and respect also goes to those whom remain here and still devoted to creating avenues and paths that may put an end to the various inequities that are directly responsible for contributing to our gradual decline as black men and as a society on the whole here in America. And for those who could care... READ MORE

  • Young Black Male

    The following poem was inspired by the growing number of YOUNG BLACK CHILDREN being rapidly introduced to the PENAL SYSTEM. More than 90% of them never had a POSITIVE ROLE MODEL or FATHER FIGURE to demonstrate the real characteristics of MANHOOD. Once again it is not in the intentions of THE SYSTEM to rehabilitate. The focus is to keep a constant flow of occupants into their PRISON CELLS. This is to ensure THEIR JOBS. Unfortunately, young black males are their M.V.P. or MOST VALUABLE... READ MORE

  • Legal News: A Fight for LIFE

    First and foremost, I ask for the readers’ patience as I am indulging in serious LEGAL ISSUES at the time. I remain devoted to the movement and, since I am in a legal state of mind, I’ve decided to drop a post on the legal aspect. Shoutouts to all the brothers dedicated to making change, those inside and out, for not too many of us share the will to some day see a major difference in the outrageous number of men incarcerated or dying. Also, congratulations to all of those whom will... READ MORE

  • Checking In

    Raise UP! Damu Penda and Salutations! I’m involved in a serious LEGAL BATTLE at the present time. I’m wrapping up my most recent motion right now. I caught my case as a “juvy”. As you may know the SUPREME COURT changed a law last year (May 17, 2010) stating that we (adolescents under 18) could not receive “LIFE SENTENCES” unless we were convicted of MURDER. Well to make a long story short, THE SENTENCING PROJECT and the CAMPAIGN FOR YOUTH JUSTICE contacted me... READ MORE

  • The link between schools and juvenile justice

    ATTENTION! It is my will that the following message reach the minds of those humble enough to listen, wise enough to take heed and influential enough to guide and lead those whom this topic may apply away from what is unarguably the new future for a great percentage of young black males. It is called the Penal System or prison as we know it. Understand, it is extremely real, relentless and unyielding in its focus and attack on African American men, specifically the youth. There is no objective,... READ MORE
