Someone once said that a stranger is just a friend you have not met yet!!! I would like for you to know that my heart and soul goes into each and every thing that I approach. At this very moment as my words enter into your mind, my sole purpose, hopefully, is to reach into your being, so that we can establish some form of communication. I sincerely want you to learn who I’m, where I’m and why I’m, so that we can hopefully meet on common ground, not allowing color, weight, age, religion or any of these standards to become a wedge between good people. Nothing in life is guaranteed but should you consider becoming my pen friend, here are some things I can promise to be for you: someone you can come to for comfort, eyes you can look into and trust, a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a supporting shoulder to cry on, a door that is always open, and time devoted to you alone. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in then don’t hesitate to write me. If I could only reach that special person before I leave this earth; I would do anything, someone who can share my dreams. Before I go, I want to say that we all have had our encounters with life’s disappointments, some worse than others. Perhaps those scars are so deeply imbedded that not even time will heal them. Yet we cannot exist without love and happiness.

In twelve years of incarceration I've spent about seven in Solitary Confinement, and I learned quick that it takes a certain breed of “human” to withstand the harsh environments of segregation, for only the strong survive! When you strip the brain from what it has evolved to do (with long-term segregation), which is to constantly perceive, interpret, and react to a stream of environmental and social stimuli, you strip the mind of all it's evolved to do completely. Everything the brain is designed to process vanishes and after only a couple of weeks of solitary, most attain a pattern of psychosis and delirium. Basically, brain neurons start to “cross-wire” and one's ability to accurately process anything deteriorates. Most become hypersensitive and agitated by regular sights, sounds, and smells. Of the over 8,000 convicts reports to be in administration segregation in TDC on January, 2013, approximately 90% of those convicts were confirmed Security Threat Group Members: (STGs). Due to simple gang affiliation – not violence or activism- all of which are doing non-debatable, full term sentences without even the slightest possibility of earning parole. (Over 75% of all STGs in Segregation are Hispanic decent.) TDC has created an answer to admin. Segregation with a program they call G.R.A.D. - “Grad Renouncement and Disassociation” from any gang through the program means to “snitch and debrief”, confirming one's willingness to help TDC officials find new information for future oppression on the gang. Automatically, one who goes to the program becomes a marked man for death because TDC officials are not seeking to better the lives of any Texas convicts, but only to uphold it's barbaric reputation. A state representative couldn't have said it better in an interview, “Texas prisons aren't for rehabilitation, but for punishment to deter people from coming back.” God bless Texas!

EAGER TO WRITE

I just wanted to post this little blog on my profile to let people know that I am eager for a pen pal to write, to help me pass time in here. I've been locked up going on five now and I'm new to this but really excited to meet new friends. I am a good listener, and have good advice, and would be a great pen pal for anyone who needs a friend. It is very lonely in here and unfortunately, I still have a ways to go. I hope you will take me up on this offer. Help me in this time of loneliness and build some really great karma for yourself. I forgot to mention that I wasn't really too religious our in the world. I try to read the Bible more now. I quit smoking January 1st. Just trying to be an all around better person. I guess trying to distance myself more form all these inmates I'm surrounded by and try to get my head more on stuff that's going on out in the world and communicate (or try to) with outside people. I listen to a lot of talk radio. My favorite is “The S*** Show.” It keeps me up to date on politics and current events. It's on three hours a day. Please click and send me a free email and I'll write back as soon as I can receive it. Looking forward to hear from you soon! Nathan S.

UNTOUCHABLE DREAM

I looked and saw a colorful smile. Something that magnified the powerful look in her eyes. Her smile was like heaven beaming through the colorless clouds. The way she talked was like witnessing a miracle. Full of grace and a sensuous effect. The things she walked about made everything else seem less important. I went to ask her what her name was and before she replied all I heard was “bang... bang... bang...!” The noise of a broken soul crying for freedom. Drenched in sweat as I wake, I realized it was all a dream. Not just a dream but one that I dream of every night. Confused by the sudden intrusion, I try to think of way of making these dreams a reality. The more I try the harder it becomes to obtain. “The universe must be working against me” is what I tell myself for comfort. Finally I have a sense of what life is about. I open my heart to share but the woman I spoke of doesn't really care. Let's not get confused – the woman I dream of isn't just my imagination but the woman I see every day that feeds my soul. Whether it be through TV, magazines, or in person. Her greatness fuels my desire for kinship, however she doesn't notice me, but I notice her. And I promise if she ever lets me in, I will give her the world!... With all my heart, Antwan

SECRETIVE COMMUNICATION

Ladies, do you know a letter is a secretive communication?... and building a friendship involves “anticipation”! A short, friendly message, a parable, a joke, or a letter filled with it, wisdom, satire, and most of all, encouragement... can have the same effect as flowers to a grave... it brings a state of serenity to all the severely wounded victims (like us) who once/or still is participating in the endless tiresome battle in the war called “friendship and love”... a letter is the first step to help patch up and speed up the progress in healing the many wounds that “loneliness” brings... a letter is much needed and it brings forth “endless desires and praises”... just like the various fragrances of a flower... or a rose, which only mimics just some of the “natural beauty that a woman possesses in her heart”... letters are always considered one of the greatest gifts and continues to be a priceless means of making an opening impression on a person's heart... “a sincere and thoughtful persuasive letter”... is the perfect compass to lead off with to explore each others minds... and reconnoiter the beautiful terrain of each others hearts... and that's just a few of the beautiful benefits of “me meeting you” and having a friend (one that's a “verb” and not a “noun”). So let's enjoy ourselves and take the “luxury of being absolutely sincere” with each other... and also know that nothing yous ay or did in the past “will change all the loving things I'm trying to offer you from my heart... as a friend to a friend”. Mother Theresa once said, “The greatest disease in the world today is loneliness”... and for many, many years, I have been suffering with a severe case of this disease. And I know it's a beautiful, compassionate woman out there “just like you” that has the antidote to cure my disease called “loneliness”. The cure is in the movement of your finger tips... try it... it won't take up too much of your time... “And thank you for taking the time out to read this.”

We hear it all the time, you never know what you’ve got until it’s gone. I’ve found that truer words have never been spoken. Now that I’m at my bottom, I see how good I had things before tragedy struck and I wasn’t mentally or emotionally strong enough to cope with it. Not knowing whether she knew the depth of my feelings and love for her. The feeling that just maybe I could’ve done something differently and she’d still be here. All these thoughts and doubts pushed me deeper in the drugs and addiction to cope. Did the drugs help? At that moment, but when the high wore off I was back to square one with the same problems and pain, only with a lot less money to my name. If only I had stepped back and been grateful for what I still had and accepted what I had lost. As much as I would’ve liked to have moved on and began to rebuild my life, I just couldn’t leave the past in the past. Any time I seemed to take 5 steps forward, my past would jump out and bite me, dragging me 10 steps back. The say the definition of insanity is “doing the same things and expecting different results” and I had definitely been suffering from it. It wasn’t until I had this time to myself without the drugs fogging my mind that I was able to see the errors of my thinking and self medicating. Nothing was gonna change until I accepted “life on life’s terms”. The past is the past and there is nothing I can do to go back and change it, but I can make the right choices to make my future a whole different story. This has all been a nightmare but maybe a blessing in disguise.

CAPITAL MURDER

If you’re curious about Juvenile Justice involving capital murder, stay tuned. To start, my first Blog is just some general information so that there will be no misunderstandings in my future Blogs. • The Term “capital murder” is generally defined as “murder committed while in the course of committing another felony” • A lot of states’ sentencing scheme for this crime is “life or death” • In the USA the death penalty is prohibited for juveniles. • Advancements in human brain research have proven that children’s brains are not able to fully process and understand the consequences of their actions. This brain function isn’t fully matured until around age 25. • When a child (this varies between states) between the ages of 13-17 is convicted of capital murder, they’re not given a range of punishment. “Life” is automatically imposed. • The time served on “life” varies depending upon the state and year it’s committed in. In Texas it’s 35 or 40 to life (with parole) or life without parole. • Why the above is an injustice to juveniles: sentences should be fitting for the crime and the circumstances leading to the crime. This is not the case. A good kid who committed a terrible mistake is given the exact same sentence as a bad kid who’s a psychotic sociopath. • The justice system is glacially slow in recognizing this injustice. In a recent Supreme Court case (Miller v Alabama 132 s.c.t. 2455) this court recognizes these facts. • Most states have only applied the rulings in “Miller” to life without parole leaving thousands given automatic life with parole (albeit in 30+ years) no relief from this injustice. I hope to post more on this soon. I’ll also happily answer specific questions you may have. Take care.

Inmate Blog Category:50 Shades of Sexual Violence
AMERICANS EMPOWERED

50 Shades of Sexual Violence 50 shades of sexual violence is the official blog of American’s Empowered for Sexual Violence Prevention Inc., a non profit anti-sexual violence organization dedicated to the eradication of all forms of sexual violence in the 21st century. Founder and current president Phillip Wilcoxson, a survivor activist and 20 year advocate is currently imprisoned in the State of Nevada and serving a 2 year term. Refusing to be silenced he advocates from behind bars, these are his manifestos. President’s Manifesto 1/01/2014 Update for 2014: As most of you may already know, I’m locked up and advocating from behind bars. 10 years ago I made a commitment to do everything possible to empower women and girls by creating an organization that would essentially declare war on sexual violence and sex offenders. I am a survivor of child sexual abuse and I’ve spent decades trying to understand myself and the consequences of being a victim while at the same time falling further victim to crime, drug addiction and the criminal justice system. I’m 35 now and my “downward spiral” has ended. I’m stronger than at any point ever before in my life and my vision and passion to avenge and empower other survivors (and all women and girls emphatically) is my modus operandi. With the support of a long time friend and pastor who believes in me, American’s Empowered for Sexual Violence Prevention Inc was incorporated in the state of Nevada in December 2013. The corporate mission, principles and objectives are clear: Rape is not a woman’s problem to survive but a man’s problem to eradicate. And so, I as president and founder declare: We are here! Knowledge is Empowerment! Our goal is Empowerment! Our mission is to eradicate sexual violence in all its manifestations in every part of the world. We will create the most empowered generation of women who will ensure that the twenty-first century will be remembered as the “Age of Empowered Women”; the period in history in which women cease being victimized by men is now. The twentieth century gave birth to women who broke the silence about sexual abuse and domestic violence, started the feminist movement, stood up to men and advanced moral and ethical treaties and when necessary by marches, speeches and murder in self defense. Women have survived violence at the hands of men and suffered the oppression of “Rule by Men” since the “Dawn of Man”. The 20th century is her new dawn; women are no longer the “second sex”. American’s Empowered for Sexual Violence Prevention is a non-profit public charity and organization that will evolve into the most supported powerful and effective movement in combating rapists, pedophiles and all forms in which violence against women and children manifests itself. Ultimately it is our goal to have a force of millions of empowered women who will be united and more powerful than any male dominated system or society that enables female subjugation and gender based sexual violence. Please join us and spread the word that there is empowerment in numbers and “support the new dawn of women in power”. She – Ra!

REHABILITATION

At the moment there are around 2,300 people serving life sentences without parole for crimes they committed while under the age of 18. I am one of them. After eight years I have dramatically changed for the better. Still at the moment I have no release date. While being incarcerated, I've had the chance to observe a flawed system from inside the belly of the beast. The criminal justice system arrests people for doing crimes and locks them up, then sentences them to time and rehabilitation. Once the person finishes their time they are released, rehabilitated or not. A person has to learn for their mind state to change. The type of learning situations that are needed to promote better thinking are seldom accessible in prison, lacking these types of learning situations is a danger to everybody. Not just to the community men are released, too, but also to the flawed thinker – who is released. Regularly, people are released from the highest level segregation which house the prison biggest threads and sent to the community. While other men have years without violating prison policy and may never be released. This is a big flaw that is known nationally. Still, nothing is being done. The only way to promote change is to push the issue. Which is my reason for this blog entry. Many men with great potential to better their communities are wasting their lives in prison cells, while dangerous people are being released. I think it is very important that people become active in promoting change in the criminal justice system because if not, it seems that law makers will continue to overlook fixing a poisonous system that's keeping us from having a healthy society. We should be focused on rehabilitation instead of mass incarceration. Tax payers' dollars are being wasted while mandatory minimums release and hold people without factoring in who is ready to be released and who isn't. Please contact me if unifying to promote change interests you. I could use as much assistance as possible and I would enjoy assisting others who are like minded.
