    Back in Solitary Confinement

    People, I would like to apologize for my inconsistent contributions to Live from Lockdown and the #RaiseUP movement as of late. I have been placed back in solitary confinement for allegedly speaking language associated with a gang. Väitetään, I was directing something. That is how the powers that be came at me. Joka tapauksessa, it was more political than that. Minut siirrettiin takaisin Trenton [New Jersey] State Prison alkaen Rahway [East Jersey State Prison] and locked down. Vietin kuusitoista päivää ...LUE LISÄÄ


    #DearMrPresident Investigate Corrupt Law Enforcement

    Dear President Obama, On ymmärrettävää, että kaikki rikoksen on tuotava oikeuden eteen, mutta kun lainvalvontaviranomaiset tulee rikollinen elementti oikeuteen ei voida koskaan palvellut, Olipa lopputulos rikosasia / tapaus. On tunnettu tosiasia, että monet kaikki haarat lainvalvontaviranomaisten, mukaan lukien Yhdysvallat Oikeuslaitos harjoittaneensa salaliitto riistää Afrikkalainen amerikkalaiset heidän kansalaisvapauksien, perustuslaillisia oikeuksia ja heidän ihmisoikeuksiaan. Äskettäin, Federal Bureau of ...LUE LISÄÄ


    Prison Education: On Becoming a Man

    During a recent prison education class, the thought was raised that some people may not recognize themselves as men until others, whom they respect, acknowledge them as men. Heti, I began to drift back to more ancient times when different cultures used rituals to develop their males from boy to manhood. African cultures deemed it necessary for males to face animals, even deadly predators, to conquer their fears. Asian tradition used body tattooing as a means for males to learn to deal...LUE LISÄÄ


    Prison Conflict

    Stateville Correctional Center (Joliet, Illinois). A meeting is taking place on the yard between the 39 Street Gents (fictional name). The leadership is confronting a lower ranking member on a rumor that he’s a snitch. T is the leader and Baby C is the second in command. The crowd includes various members of the Gents. The alleged snitch’s name is Lowdown. The brother bringing the charges is on the new [fresh off the street]! T: We want to call this meeting to order. Got a serious...LUE LISÄÄ


    The Prison Renaissance: A Rebirth is Needed

    Elää Lockdown (LIVE) works to usher in the prison renaissance – a cultural rebirth in urban communities based on knowledge and understanding of history, self and society – strongly influenced by prisoners, that will result in a culture shift away from underachievement toward one of social responsibility and self-determination. Prison culture has long had an impact on urban culture. LIVE amplifies the voices and talents of enlightened prisoners with great influence among...LUE LISÄÄ

    Advice from a Prisoner

    I believe that a man should be judged based on his principles and these are some of mine . . . Learn to accept that just as not all characters are the same, not all minds are alike! Siis, because a lesson can be taught by one, doesn’t mean that it can be easily learned by another. Varmasti, certain people can understand certain things, but much will be misunderstood by many. Some people tell all in words, while others communicate with silence. Learn to listen to what’s being...LUE LISÄÄ


    The Ill Effects of Inhumane Prison Policy

    Prison life is abnormal, and in order to maintain a semblance of sanity, you must be abnormal, which in of itself is oxymoronic. The abnormality of prison is exacerbated by ill-advised prison policy. Esimerkiksi, eighteen years ago the maximum-security prisons in Illinois were put on 23-1 (23 hours on lockdown and 1 hour out-of-cell time) and prison administrators were contemplating ending contact visits, and I composed a letter to several prominent people in Illinois who were fighting to keep...LUE LISÄÄ


    Criminal Justice Reform and the Obama Administration

    This blog post is to give a heads up about what is good on the legal front. All prisoners who came to prison after 2008 should NOT listen to those who criticize the Obama Administration for doing NOTHING. All the jail house lawyers will tell you the biggest difference in law now is that Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) claims filings do not take 12-36 months to be answered. Lisäksi, the most sentencing reform in history has been effected during the tenure of the Obama...LUE LISÄÄ


    Set Goals that Inspire Success

    I believe it’s real important to set goals in life that inspire success. Without goals I do not believe we will ever put full effort in getting something done. I have many goals. I work everyday to ACHIEVE them. Obviously my first goal is freedom. Many take freedom for granted and do not understand the position their in or what they can accomplish with their freedom. Take responsibility. Be truthful. Choices determine outcomes. 1.) What are the “what ifs” that come up...LUE LISÄÄ
