PRISON AS HIGH SCHOOL

Prison often reminds me of high school, and not just because of the cliques, the drama, the emphasis on reputation, etc. Also because of the one-size-fits-all programs and the way everyone is crammed into them. We’re often treated like children. Now, there is something to be said that […]

RELIGION IN PRISON

Another problem I have with guys in here using religion to supposedly better their lives is that they often focus on the wrong things. They debate trivial issues like whether masturbation is okay, as if that is going to make them a better person one way or another. […]
