    that feeling.  First they came for........and it's starting.
    Very depressing because the truth is they are really afraid of all of us.  We try to expose them.  Roaches hate light.

      that they tell us are like roaches - shining the light of truth on those lies is our job.

      Sigh.  It is so hard to battle the lies when we are inundated with propaganda - like the prison porn on MSNBC.

      Essentially we are being taught to think of inmates as animals in cages - fear fear fear should they ever be released.

      Honestly, a majority of inmates are not killer sociopaths.  They are victims of laws designed to sweep them up, and throw away the key.

      I used to do drug treatment sessions in prisons here in NY.

      God - I can't tell you how sad it is to see so many kids who now have no future "outside".
