“TRYING TO MAKE THE TRANSITION; The Prison System/Life of New York State vs. The Prison System/Life of The State of Ohio”, By Jeffrey Tobias, Part VIII.

The Professors who teach for Hudson Link/Mercy College, at Sing Sing Correctional Facility, are HUMANITARIANLY BEAUTIFUL people. I never had the pleasure of being taught by Mrs. Skouzen, the English Professor, or Mr. Skouzen, the Economic’s Professor (I hope I’m not butchering the spelling of their name); Mrs. […]

I didn’t know EVERY LAW, that was birthed into existence, were Laws that were put into place to hamper and enable the Black Race, particularly the Black Man. Those two Columbia courses, coalesced with the History 105 class, brought that paper to fruition, so of course it ORIGINATED […]

What I realized about Ohio’s prison system is that it sets you up for failure; there is no rehabilitation involved, for people who have more than 5yrs. to the Parole Board. The “POWERS THAT BE”, or the so-called “MAN” wants you involved in all types of mischief, altercations, […]
