This bullshit is really OUTRAGEOUS.  I was a prosecutor, and when I had ANY doubt about a defendant’s guilt, I dropped the charges.   READ THIS, AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO SOME OF THE THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE IN PRISON IN AMERICA. Prosecutors tell innocent defendants that they will be freed if they plead guilty to a lesser charge; if they do not they will be retried, which could mean many more years of prison.  Some prosecutors say these...

  Rough day already! Carpe Diem!  10/2/19 … I did not sleep well when my friend, X, told me what happened in court yesterday. A guy I was helping by phone and email got screwed yesterday. Long story short: He was on trial in MO for the past two days and he had a PD who did NOTHING. He is, in fact innocent, yet was convicted of all 3 charges.

Troubled companies made him billions. A prison phone investment made him enemies – This Guy is Bad News – kra

Posted by on Sep 21, 2019 in Featured, Prison Abuse |

This guy, Tom Gores, and other owners of private prisons and private companies providing “services (classes, courses, treatment programs, probation) to the justice system are … as I have said for years …  a disaster. They are focused on profit, not helping the individual nor society!  All studies show that inmates who have more contact – visits and/or calls – with friends and family are LESS LIKELY TO RE-OFFEND....
