PRISON

Dear Dr. Phill, First and foremost, I’d like to thank you for providing your viewers a platform to discuss subject matter not always comfortable to talk about. I was watching your program dated Jan. 19, 2010 where the subject was entitled “Desperately Seeking Love Encounters”, and what measure people take to find love. I applaud women like Kim for having the courage to go on national television and give a detailed account concerning the events and circumstances of her personal dating life. Specifically, the fact that she has visited sites like (writeaprisoner.com) to find companionship is commendable. However, I can’t say that I was too thrilled about the way you responded to her because you made it seem as though her method of finding companionship was equivalent to searching the garbage can for trash. I believe the term you used was “selling yourself short”. Dr. Phill, with all due respect, on behalf of the entire U.S. prisoner population, it’s vitally important that I run these number by you in an effort to take some of the sting out of the message you so readily conveyed. Statistically speaking, the U.S. Department of Justice has determined that out of the 1.6 million prisoners incarcerated in this country, 85% are either factually or procedurally innocent of the crimes for which they have been convicted. This means that only 15% of this nation’s incarcerated population is actually guilty of their crimes and therefore deserving of punishment. So, given the fact that we were all deemed guilty in a court of law, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re all deserving of the punishment that society has subjected us to. The thought of being associated with trash is particularly offensive considering the fact that prisons are distinctly, institutions for rehabilitation and learning.

BANDING TOGETHER

I extend my love and light from this dark place. I wish to shed light on the fact that we're all connected to an inescapable web of mutuality. Recent events of our young men being killed in our country shows the need for civility. Cultural mores, race and poverty are used as social class indicators that are encased within a social class system that lawfully targets a certain caste and gears them for a street to prison pipeline! I salute those of you who have decriminalized your mentalities, educated yourselves and learned the letter of the law to challenge the arbitrary and capricious mechanisms used to bury prisoners in dungeons designed like mausoleums, based on ideologies that counter the status quo. Developing a creative synthesis from theoretical polarities that extend further than ethnic demarcation is illustrated when we can come together in peaceful protest and work together to end hostilities between law enforcement and people of color. We're intrinsically related to the family of oppressed people worldwide, whose liberation lies in the bond of our human consonance. the best weapon we have at dismantling the pillars of injustice/tyranny is the demonstration of our humanity. Governing ourselves with the principles of self-respect and respect for others consolidates the consciousness of unified struggle, let Americans discern the law is no longer sustained by reasoning of justice but enforced by sword alone, then we will have peace...

I’ve been lost in the prison system for years. I’ve grown cold that I shed no more tears, that tends to happen over a life of living in places that most people fear. It’s taken a lot to cope with, living a deadly life in here, yet it’s taken more keeping my head up year after year and remain standing firm to write this here. This goes to my father that has stood by my side, year after year and that has supported my every single year that I’ve sat and wasted away in here. Although, I’ve never seen him shed a tear, I know he isn’t happy seeing me set here another year. So I’d like to take a moment and post this here to show everyone who views this bad guy here. That no matter how hard and cold I appear, I still have love for my father for standing by me year after year. I hope you’re blessed throughout this New Year, just as you’ve blessed your son that wrote this here. And always remember this here, “the love I have for you is true, and sincere”. Love your Son, JR.

FRIENDSHIP, RELATIONSHIP, MARRIAGE

“Friendship, Relationship, Marriage” Why do so many marriages end in divorce? Regardless of whom to place the blame on, everyone loses. Finding someone compatible takes time. Negative signs are usually visible in the relationship phase but often overlooked. Focus on what’s really important throughout each phase, positive characteristics rather than material and physical qualities. I’ve never been married, however my parents have been married for over 30 years so I value the importance of a healthy relationship that could possibly ensure a successful marriage. Don’t skip stages because you learn so much about the person that could help eliminate the possibility of a broken heart. Men should keep all phases feeling brand new. Even when the hair grays and the body fades, we should still compliment her beauty. I have a 25 year old sister and mother. So, respect for women is very important to me. Everyone loses, women lose their heart, men lose their help and soul mate and children lose parents. So, what experiences or advice do you have? What have you learned from the past? What would you do differently? We all make mistakes in life, I certainly have. Establish healthy friendships, sincere relationships and life lasting marriages. Know when to stop at stage one. Every friendship/relationship is not meant for marriage. Aim for happiness in every stage. Looking forward to your friendly responses on relationships or any topic you want to discuss. Thank you, Al

WRITE A PRISONER

Why Write a prisoner? Well, why the hell not? Nah, for real there is no one answer for this question of course. There are countless possibilities as to why, not only for the men and women incarcerated throughout the U.S. and abroad but the men and women who have chosen to visit the website and take the sort of “think outside the box approach” to meeting new people. There is a perception that the people who come to WAP have some type of problem or issues or are desperate etc…I guess some ask why write a prisoner? My theory is that there are all types of people who come to WAP from all different backgrounds and walks of life. Men, women, single mothers, college students, professionals, church people, country people, city folks etc…can’t forget prisoners. For me, WAP offers me the same opportunities I once had as a free man, which were meeting new people on a frequent basis, building relationships and sharing experiences. WAP has given me a voice out there and the ability to be heard. I can only hope that my words reach and draw the right type of people into my life. Thank you for being open minded enough to understand that everything is not always black and white. Peace out, Mike

I believe in the many conspiracy’s the federal government and our military is involved in. I also believe that anyone who does not believe there is other alien life in the universe is just plain ignorant. I am a firm believer in alien life forms existing. Take Christians they believe in God who is not of this world and the heavens “Alien” “Not of this world” I mean pull your head out of you a—people. WE ARE NOT ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE.

The two previous Blogs are very personal to me because I’ve been through this myself. I understand intimately what it feels like to be lost and to be thrown into a situation way over my head. It was sink or swim, with sharks all around! I know what it’s like to not have any social support, to feel as if I would never see my freedom again. Don’t get me wrong; I accept that I deserve punishment. What I wish to express is how unjust it is to give children automatic sentences. You see, thousands of children throughout the USA are found guilty then automatically sentenced to “life”. Admittedly some of those children probably deserved “life” but a great majority did not! Fortunately the legal system is slowly coming around to understanding this. I would like to ask each of you, if you feel this subject deserves serious consideration by law makers please contact your congressman, legislator, and state representatives and push for changes in these laws. Change only happens when people band together to make it happen for the sake of children who do not deserve any automatic sentence make this change happen! Give your support to organizations like “children at risk” and local ones that help give law makes the “what for” over unfair unjust laws. Do what you can when you can. If nothing else find a child or former child who went through this and lend them your support. Just so you know if not for the support of my pen pals I’d not be nearly as reformed as I am today. Due to them I now have hope. So if you can make a difference, please do so! Thanks to all who helped me and still do, you’re all angels!

To whom it may concern, potential friends… I just wanted to take a minute to express and point out a few things. In considering reaching out to me or anyone in this situation you have to have an open mind and be understanding and realize that everything online is not always accurate or fact or even tell the full story. I say this because after all these years I’m still being constantly judged. My situation is unfortunate and tragic. It happened in 1999 when I was only 16 years old. To read a more accurate short version please go to: www.ACLUMich.org resources, publications, click on second chances JSLWP. The story has a picture of my 16th birthday before I went away. In ‘2012’ the United States Supreme Court ruled that it is unconstitutional to give a juvenile life without parole. In ‘2013’ a Federal Judge in Michigan ruled juveniles eligible for parole. This is a lot to absorb but this is my situation and journey so far. I appreciate you being open-minded and understand that sometimes in life, things happen that we as children never anticipated. In this blog and my profile I’m as real and sincere as possible. Please look past any negative comments, words, or inaccurate one-sided stories. Consider what I’ve said and focus on now the future, be optimistic, and positive. Thank you
