Alabama Department Of Corrections, Ha!
It should read, Alabama Department Of Corruption. The sad part of it all, is that society doesn’t even realize they’re being scammed by the state. They pay tax dollars to keep housing inmates who reform themselves. Funding for this class, funding for that class. All that does is fill someone’s wallet up and add extra digits to their bank accounts. All inmates get is an A/A big book to read out of. That book has got to be under $30.00. At the end of the day it’s a choice everyone makes, to use alcohol and drugs or not to. All the funding in the world for classes will not stop someone from returning to prison.
Where is the logic in that? Much less paying for my three meals a day, all medicines, doctor visits, dental care, eye care and wear, rent, water, electricity, heating, cooling, toilet paper, tampons, pads, shirts, pants, coat, panties, bras, socks, shoes, shorts, t-shirts, pyjamas, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, razors, shaving cream, hair grease, comb, brush, my clothes washed daily, and get those who pay for all this, protest me for parole so that I can stay longer in prison with all these accommodations.
Question – who’s punished and who isn’t? Being a model inmate hasn’t gotten me anywhere.
I’m discriminated against at every corner I turn because I’m white. Fact is, those who work for Alabama Department Of Corrections are predominantly black. The racism is not contained by the officials, therefore giving free reign for inmates to act and speak freely about racism.
The motto here seems to be “I Feel”. Operating on emotions and feelings. In fact the whole state of Alabama should throw away their expensive law books, manyals, crieterias and guidelines, because Judges, District Attorney’s, Officers, Officials, Members, Commissioners, Senators, Congressman, Wardens, Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants, Corrections Officers, Classification Specialists and et al , don’t even use them unless “they feel like it”.
I’ve personally been told by some of the listed commanders, “I don’t feel like signing you up for a lower custody” or “I don’t feel like they will ever lower your custody” or “I don’t feel like you’ve done enough time”, but wait , this is my favorite one, “due to your co-defendants crime, I feel you should remain in the custody you’re in”. Nevermind that I meet all qualifications and criteria for a lower status according to THEIR manuals. So answer this – Mounds or Almond Joy?
Sometimes they feel like a nut – Sometimes they don’t.
