    The School To Prison Pipeline In America

    in Moms and Family

     It is unconscionable but true the arrest rate in America has gone down but the prison incarceration rate has exponentially gone up! The inner city needless to say has the greatest percentages and people of color are disproportionately affected. Public awareness is necessary for us to make the changes and the will to put forth the effort will require love and courage. The data is undeniable the question is do we have the will to address it.

  • Clemency For Those Who Has Been To Prison

    in Christianity

    Come aboard a trip after the release from prison and the things to become a part of society once released. The first thing the state ask is each person returning outside from prison is to register with the ploice department or sheriff office. Many returning inmates never register some because they have forgotten to excited to be free again. Some because they are afraid another change may come up.


    The clemency function is an act of mercy that absolves an individual from all or any part of the punishment that the law imposes. This is a power to grant full or conditional pardons, or commute punishment. There are rules for these lengthy procedures, and these powers are vested in the Governor only with the agreement of two Cabinet members who are also statewide elected officials.

    State and federal authorities have arrested three members of the Ku Klux Klan — all of whom either work, or have worked, for Florida’s troubled prison agency — on charges of conspiring to kill a former prison inmate, prosecutors say.


    Arrested Thursday were Thomas Jordan Driver, 25, David Elliot Moran, 47, and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 42, according to a news release from the state Attorney General’s Office. All three face charges of conspiracy to commit murder.


    Prosecutors say Driver and Morgan work for the Department of Corrections. Newcomb was a former prison employee who was let go during his probation period.

    Should those who served prison time punished further by society when Released?

    in Music

    It's a serious subject that has come up a lot recently that I find fascinating. Should those who have served time in prison after being convicted of a crime, any crime, be punished further when it comes to moving on?


    Now, I am not here to defend the crime that they committed nor am I going to ignore the thoughts of the victims. The story here (link below) is about whether a recently convicted rapist, whose profession is a footballer (soccer player), should be hired back by his previous club or not there for going back to his job.


    This is where it gets tricky and I can see clearly why there is a split in opinions when it comes to this matter.On one side, he has been found guilty of rape, he has been rehabilitated, served his time in prison and will be released later this year, set to be put back into life outside of prison. It's what the law and prison system is about in this country (UK). Those who have committed a crime are sentenced, done their time given and set by the judge, has been rehabilitated and finished his sentence and now sent back into society. Working, paying bills, paying taxes, etc.http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/528.858001-Should-those-who-have-served-their-time-in-prison-after-a-conviction-still-be-punished

    Prisoners in Prison + POW's/US Soldiers= PTSD

    in Self Help

    “MOTHER HORRIFIED AFTER JAILED SON PICTURED WITH SWOLLEN EYE AND ROPE AROUND HIS NECK”http://blacklikemoi.com/2015/03/mother-horrified-after-jailed-son-pictured-with-swollen-eye-and-rope-around-his-neck/


    Since the last week of March, social media continues to blow up commenting on this story. So much so, we wanted to hear your comments live on “talk back Tuesday’s.” Unfortunately too many mothers have cried over their sons being incarcerated, but how many of us focus on the safety of prison life? It may be more American to focus on the conditions of our loved ones who go off to war. Nevertheless, both present with more similarities than differences, when they return to civil society. Both prisoners and soldiers live in war zones that require them be in survive or die mode. Living at code red for a significant amount of time and then returning to civil society without any real transition comes down to trained assassins living in communities that do not recognize them. We only assume and make judgments about where they’ve been, and demand that they just fall in line with the rest of us. With social media giving us a glimpse of prison reality and our war hero’s returning home physically but function like they are still in level 5, means that we have to get real about PTSD and other mental dysfunctions brought on by extreme life experiences. Lets Talk!
