Welsi West

May 9 2022

Hey there!

My name is Welsi West. I'm 23 years old and I'm from Honolulu, Hawaii. My ethnicity is Micronesian, Chuukese, and I have a rich brown skin. I'm about 5’ 8” tall, and I love to work out and play sports. I'm family oriented and I believe in loyalty to the fullest.

Now as you can see, I'm just like you, trying to look into something that will hopefully, by the grace of God, turn out to be everlasting, and if you're trying to get a little more information about me, then you already know what to do.

Put that pen/pencil to paper and holler at your boy.  Until then. I’ll be waiting for!  See you soon.

Hey everyone!

I'm right back at cha like I never went anywhere! Well, I'm just trying to escape the madness here I'm surrounded by. Thought I should reach out to y'all to see what's really going on out there in the real world.

On another element. I've been blessed to breathe another year! I'm 32 years old now! My birthday was February 13th.

Oh yeah, my case is now on appeal…..now in the courts of criminal appeals. So, let's pray that I come out on top of my situation. For real, for real!

Alright, I'm posting a pic that's more up-to-date, and you can see my face better.

Well, I'm not going to hold you up too long, so I'm going to bring everything to an end. I'm here with ears and an open mind. Feel free to get at me on any level.

Peace,

Mr. Davis

 

Mind of the Sick

May 6 2022

Today another interesting day from the stories you hear in here, prison isn't filled with all drug dealers and murders, you meet some very unique individuals who believe they did nothing wrong,but I'm no judge so I'll just classify these people as sick.

We often see the results of a young Black male’s life when it ends in tragedy at the hands of law enforcement, or by the hands of another young Black male. However, there are thousands of young Black males whose life does not end as dramatically as the ones we witness on our news channels. Although not as tragically, they often end in turmoil. Due to a mix of his environment, his stereotypical position in society by those in power; and ultimately by his own decisions, many young Black males lives’ often end inside courtrooms; resulting in extensive prison sentences. Rarely do we hear from these young Black males who grow old within the federal prison system as well as the prison systems throughout America. This book gives a voice to the voiceless. It speaks from the perspective of the unguided, the hard-headed, the abandoned, the stereotyped, the excluded, the misunderstood, and the forgotten. Not victimizing the Black community, but shining light on where we have to take responsibility for our actions. Also, our views and philosophy, and where and what we need to focus on and start at to reach a better standard of living, a standard that will ensure us a successful future and desirable place in the status of society for the generations to come. The author diagnoses the identity crisis that many young Black males suffer in trying to come to the understanding of what a man really is, and what his responsibilities ultimately are. Who is more qualified than one who has suffered from, and witnessed, by interactions, this crisis firsthand? These pages are the journey of the author from ignorance and confusion, as he shares his shortcomings and growth, to enlightenment.

Anger, regret, hopelessness, bitterness, resentment and feelings of abandonment, these are all feelings that a prisoner may feel and experience during his/her incarceration. Also, perseverance and hope, ambition and a deep desire to live a life with purpose are the evolution process that some but not all may reach. These pages begin with the story of his arrest, his feelings at the possibility of losing his freedom for additional years out of his life. The first time experiences of being a federal prisoner, traveling by plane from state to state. All the ins and outs of federal prison life and the impact incarceration takes on the human psyche, and spirit. Within the details and explanations of our present mind state in the Black community, specifically the Black male; there also lies possible answers and solutions to our deeply embedded problematic approach to life during our early years. These pages also hold hope and shine light in very dark places that are not known to mainstream America. Hence, There Is Light In The Darkness.

There Is Light In The Darkness

You have spent the majority of your life incarcerated. You have been incarcerated for the past seven years. You served your first prison sentence at the age of twenty-one. This is your fourth prison sentence. You are now forty-one years of age.

You have missed monumental moments in your loved-ones lives; graduation, marriages, and newborn kids. Some of your loved-ones have passed away. You have lost two women in your life that you loved dearly; due to your lengthy incarceration, they have moved on and are now married.

This is the author who shares all the feelings of loneliness, abandonment, betrayal, ridicule and regret of being incarcerated; but also of ambition, hope and an undying desire to turn negativity into something positive. Giving the reader the change of perspective from a 20 year old young male caught up in the allure and illusions of the fast life, and all its trappings; to the now 41 year old man who now looks at life with a broader vision. Within this change of perspective the author articulates the problems that plague the Black community, asks very much needed questions and gives very realistic solutions that relate to this day and age. Bringing light to the mind state of young Black males and the internal problems that the Black community will have to acknowledge if it is ever to attain its truest potential; all from the viewpoint of a once young Black male and self-proclaimed thug etc., that was once caught up in the life himself. Also, addressing the Black community’s issues with law enforcement and the judicial system. Filled with philosophical articles, poetry and correspondence between the prisoner and loved-ones, he relates all the above; all while giving the reader an inside and in depth look at day to day life inside the federal prison system.

Steven Anderson #447951

GOVERNMENTAL CORRUPTION          

Why is the Michigan’s Attorney General D. N. refusing to do her job, where her prosecutor convicted Steven Anderson illegally? This prosecutor boldly and unapologetically broke the law to convict this BLACK MAN! It’s the Attorney General’s job to hold her prosecutor’s accountable for their actions. Yet she has ignored Mr. Anderson for almost two years now. She can be seen on CNN on Saturday January 16, 2021 at 9:12PM talking about how no one is above the law, no one should be “inoculated”. But, here in her own State, her own backyard, she is not practicing what she preaches. Even when it’s her job to do so, even when indisputable proof has been provided to her multiple times.

The prosecutor wanted to increase Mr. Anderson’s culpability by lying to the court and misleading the jury. Now, if the prosecutor is always under oath to NEVER Lie or Mislead the Judge/and/or Jury, and he breaks that oath by doing just that. Is it not PERJURY??? Perjury does not exclude prosecutors. And how could Mr. Anderson possibly have possibly received a fair trial where the prosecutor is attempting such illegal tactics to mislead the jury, and to obtain a conviction??

FACTS: Two trials, same judge, same prosecutor first trial defendant, Witness 1 testifies on his behalf. His testimony consists of a duress defense. That Mr. Anderson made him stay at the scene at gun point. That Mr. Anderson made him shoot his own gun. And that Mr. Anderson wouldn’t not let him leave. The prosecutor then caught Witness 1 in several lies. In closing arguments the prosecutor called Witness 1 a liar “with lie after lie after lie”. “A chameleon, a master manipulator”. “He’s trying to throw up his Hail Mary pass.” “And who knows with this defendant what story will pop out next.” Witness 1 was convicted of second degree murder.

A month and a half later, second trial, now the prosecutor wants to call Witness 1 as a credible witness to testify and increase culpability against Mr. Anderson. Mr. Anderson and his attorney object to this, and this is when the prosecutor commits perjury by saying, “I would not put a witness on the stand that I believe would lie about anything material in this case.” This is PERJURY and when the corrupt judge sides with him, he then proceeds to mislead the jury by offering testimony he knows is false. Mr. Anderson was convicted of first degree murder on an aiding and abetting theory and sentenced to LIFE in prison.

Mr. Anderson does not have to be actually innocent to be wrongfully convicted.

Attorney General, D.N. hold this prosecutor accountable for his action as you said you would!!

Like this and tweet to everyone you know if you’re tired of seeing BLACK MEN or any other person wrongfully convicted. Let’s make the Attorney General take action against crooked and corrupt prosecutors. Please Help For Change! God forbid it’s one of your family members going through such a miscarriage of justice, and Lord knows how many others he has done this to.

 I'm a social person, I like to laugh and make others laugh. I have a growing interest in being an artist.

I'm looking for new positive connections, someone who can appreciate my growth and progress. A focused woman who will push me to accomplish future goals for a greater success. Behind every successful man is a strong, supportive woman.

New Orleans raised and yet connected within the ties of the city as the clouds are tied within the sky. We could say that over the years I’ve been selfish and abused the love around me but  since I’ve been incarcerated it’s indescribable to explain the value and apperception that  I currently hold towards life in itself. It’s been a long road I admit but I understand that I must accept my faults and flaws of life.

My time spent as a facilitator and a mentor changing the lives of at risk youth has taken a great part towards my rehabilitation, while I also do hospice care on my free time. I’ve found connection within people as I facilitate classes but sometimes I feel like something is still missing deep down inside. It’s indescribable because there are many people that surround me but yet I find myself still feeling alone. I find that music helps me escape from the reality of feeling trapped inside these walls and I just wanna express to someone and free my heart just as the music frees soul.

I would like to build a friendship with someone I can trust and over time we can build to a point of feeling comfortable enough to express freely and laugh with one another. Trust, honesty, loyalty, and respect  is a foundation towards a great friendship and leads to great communication whenever the conversation never leaves its circle.
