Find out why prisoners are forced to wear each other’s underwear: How prisons procure magazine subscriptions using your name: How only a small portion of the funds you send to prisoners end up in the hands of the intended recipient. Find out how you can be kept in prison if you cannot pay for your keep while incarcerated so that you are only there because you are in debt to the for-profit prison.
Guards who care are demeaned while Guards who are abusive are rewarded.
Like our health care system, our prison system is meant to make money, not deter or reform prisoners.

AFTER PRISON: WHO’S THERE TO HELP?
The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation, with a jail and prison population that increased from 200,000 to a staggering 2.3 million in the past 40 years. But what happens to all those people after they serve their time and go back into their communities? Not surprisingly, the barriers to living after incarceration are staggering. They face employment discrimination, denial of public benefits and food stamps for their families, exclusion from housing, and let’s not forget that even voting rights are taken away for some.
So what do we do to help make sure these folks don’t return to crime and are able to build their lives?
An organization called “Root and Rebound” in California is helping former prisoners with social support, legal services, education, training, advocacy and litigation.
Our guests this week are Katherine Katcher, founder and executive director of the program, who earned her law degree from UC Berkeley, and Sonja Tonnesen, deputy director at Root & Rebound. These women will join us to talk about the problems and social issues surrounding those released from prison and share some of their successes and ideas for helping the formerly incarcerated rejoin society.

Koch served sentences of 18 mo. to 5 yrs. in federal and state prisons, then went on to become a pilot.

FROM THE PRISON TO THE PALACE FROM ADVERSITY TO PROMOTION
Genesis 37:1 - 50:26 is the story of Joseph. In these chapters we learn the adversity of Joseph’s early years. He was hated by his brothers, sold into slavery, falsely accused of a sexual assault, wrongly imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. Joseph overcame all of these adversities to be second in command over all of Egypt.
Your past neither defines or confines you; but when you maintain the right attitude before God it will refine you and qualify you for your destiny.

Legitimate pleasure: Anything that refreshes you without distracting you from your final goal.
Illicit Pleasure: Any pleasure which violates the sacred right of another. –Ravi Zacharias “The Problem of Pleasure”
Sin: According to Susanna Wesley (John Wesley’s mother) “If anything weakens your reasoning, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes away your relish of spiritual things; in short, if anything increases the authority and the power of the flesh over the spirit, that to you becomes sin, however good it is in itself."
1 John 2:16 (KJV) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Ecclesiastes 2: 8-11, 22-23 (KJV)
8 I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers, and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments, and that of all sorts.
9 So I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained with me.
10 And whatsoever mine eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labour: and this was my portion of all my labour.
11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.
22 For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.
