Recently CNN Reporter Drew Griffin did a story on how Sex Offenders are being dumped after 24 hours back onto the streets. Many of us know where they are going. That would be to an AA or NA meeting.
I am so glad CNN is bringing the light to corrupt rehab and now this practice.
How should we and can we keep our community safe never mind deal with the criminla sexual predation goings on in AA and its culture.
We Have a plan. A movie called The 13th Step the film is in the making.

The number of inmates returning to state prisons within three years of release has remained steady for more than a decade. The system designed to deter (inmates) from continued criminal behavior clearly is falling short., That is an unhappy reality, not just for offenders but for the safety of American communities..

Discrimination is a given in our society and the world. Being denied rights because of "race", ethnicity, religion, sex, or sexual orientation is a constant reality. The fight is a daily battle for many. However, there are those who face another, or in some cases, additional discrimination based on the fact that they have commited a crime even though they have served their time. Most find it difficult, if not impossible, to find employment or housing after they have left prison. This ultimately puts the ex-offender in a stressful position and many times forced to return to illegal activity to support him/herself. Although there are many programs to help ex-offenders enter the job market it is ultimately employers who refuse to take the next step to hire.
This issue is rarely discussed and I am happy to have a gentleman, we'll call "Mr. G" share his experience. Born and raised in Chicago, his troubles began when he moved to New York City when he was exposed to the "fast lane" as he put it. Unable to cope he got caught up in a lifestyle and ended up in prison. Though he is on a spiritual path, like so many ex-offenders he is finding it hard to find work and housing due to his past.
Happy to report that my guest has just found a job and will have begun work by the time of this broadcast.
