Just because we’re convicted of crimes does that mean we’re incapable of changing?

there’s so much that can be done for many of us prisoners when we have the support on the outside, but there aren’t many people out there who truly understand the struggle that we go through in here. Majority don’t give a damn because they view criminals as worthless lower class people not citizens, they feel like we deserve every bit of the mistreatment that we are getting, inside these walls despite the laws that protect our human rights. I’m not saying that it’s wrong that we’re being punished for our crimes, I accept responsibility for my actions and will make do with the loss of my freedom. What society don’t seem to realize is that freedom being stripped from us is our punishment for our crimes. Not being able to live or move freely, time away from our family and loved ones, not being able to eat what we want, being told how we’re to live and so on and so forth! That’s our punishment! But there are rules and policies within These penal institutions that protects our safety and well-being. Some of these policies coincides with federal laws/US Constitution and these are the policies and laws that are continuously being violated by the officials of the Dept of Corrections. Laws that they know they’re breaking but instead they choose to violate because they knows we are unable to prove they’re wrong doings in the court of law due to the fact that they control our corresponding avenue. They control our incoming and outgoing mail, monitor our phone calls and visitation. They only allow who they want to enter the prison. When our family and friends call the prison to check on our beings these prison officials ALWAYS tell them lies about us whether we’re doing good or bad.  This is something that the judgmental citizens in society don’t know about our jailers, policeman, prosecutors and other government officials — THEY ARE ALL LIARS AND THE BIGGEST CRIMINALS IN THE WORLD!!! These people get paid to tell lies and mislead us, beat us, railroad us, dehumanize us, psychologically torment us and emotionally abused us. People of this nation has been brainwashed to a point to where they only perceive circumstances from a one-sided outlook instead of an all-around standpoint, this one-sided perception is the AMERICAN way to think and see things. And for this reason alone nothing about this country will never be fair.

Convicts and criminals are classified as dangerous people according to society but the question that tells it all is what actually made criminals dangerous? Could it be the bad economy or the history of violence in America that’s affected people from Generations on down, could it be racism??? Either way we are all just a product of our environment – America!! The rulers of America are the people who in political power of the government – all government employees!!! They made us this way! Then they turn around and place Us in these prisons where we endure the traumatic hardships that changes the way we think, our mentality and our hearts. After taking us through all this minivan release us back into society and expect us to be better people and do better. Either these people who are in power are just playing dumb or the system is a dead on track!

As the great Gandhi quotes: “BE THE CHANGE THAT YOU WANT TO SEE!!” And I phrased this quote because all the turmoil that has enveloped this country in the recent years and throughout history demonstrate just how corrupt U.S. government really is. Everybody expresses the change that must be made for the people and their living conditions and for a better economy but nothing is actually being done when the power that the ensure that they keep their foot on the necks of the people to keep them in their place. It is displayed on a variety accounts just how unimportant the minority class (especially blacks) is to this country. Dr. MLK Jr said it clearly:

“The seal and the Constitution reflect the thinking of the founding fathers that this has to be a nation for white people and by white people. Native Americans, blacks, and all other non-white people were to be the burden bearers for the real citizens of this nation…”

Until the world rid themselves of their racial hatred then everything regarding mankind will crumble. No man is superior over another, God is the greater being of all things and through the spirit of God we must answer to for our actions whether good or bad.

Just because we’re convicted of crimes does that mean we’re incapable of changing? Because every time I look up I see that us prisoners are continuously being judged for past misdeeds, even those that were committed mistakenly / blindly. Why are we not given the opportunity to show that we are worthy of a chance? If the system really sees us as dangerous criminals why don’t they establish programs within their system to help us become better people, teaching us the ways on the other side of the law? Applying these efforts will enable us to do better because we’ll know better instead of them repeatedly subjecting us to these extremely traumatic measures of what they call Justice, it is only affecting us mentally in the worst ways. What makes matters even worse is that the evil mistreatment perpetuated upon us by our jailers we would not have known just how spiteful these people can be if we had not witnessed it firsthand. These same individuals are mingling out in the free world with our families and other good righteous people, smiling in their faces without them having the slightest thought of the poison that flows through their DNA. We are placed in these institutions as punishment so when these government officials violate the law how is it that they always manage to avoid prosecution? A crime is a crime in the eyes of the law so when one is committed by any man that makes them a criminal, why judge another without judging themselves first? The same people who prosecute and sentence us are criminals but the same individuals base judgment on us as if they’re better. With this type of mindset is why the world is full of madness. The changes that we seek for ourselves and for our children and families as well as the future won’t ever come to fruition until we change our attitudes and outlooks on life. We as humans shouldn’t adapt to other people’s ideas and opinions because then we won’t be being our true selves when living in another man’s shadow. And this is one of the biggest problems in today’s world. Einstein stated – “We can’t solve the problems with the same thinking that created them.”
