College Guild: Respect Reduces Recidivism But What is Respect in Prison?

I am all for anything that will improve the life of an inmate no matter their crime. This is for purely selfish reasons, believe it or not. Do even the tiniest bit of research and you find that improving the conditions in prison drastically cuts crime rates on the outside. It is one of the biggest reasons that crime is so high in this country as compared to other places. We cant seem to get our fat, American heads around the concept that prison must be a place of rehabilitation and not a money-making venture. Our politicians have a strong hold on the weakest of minds and keep feeding them false information and statistics to gain popular support for this farce despite the rising crime rates.

The few enlightened folks who attempt to do something about it are usually vilified by the village idiots who are happily drinking the Kool-aid from the prison powers that be. Because of this, I hate to knock any organization for trying but sometimes it seems things just haven't been all the wa…

When Families Reach Out

Several times per month I get email requests for help for inmates. Someones mom, sister, brother, cousin - whatever. I try to dedicate most resources to the women on death row but do what I can for anyone in need.

Everything I do here comes out of my own pocket. I have no fund or benevolent benefactor to help me in these endeavors. I depend on you guys. My readers. I get a pittance each month for Google ads which goes straight to inmates, as well as the revenue from my articles and books. I also get about $50 a year in donations from the little box in the left sidebar.

The money I receive does not come anywhere near enough to cover what families and friends ask me to do for their inmates. Therefore, I thought I would list the most recent requests here in the hopes that someone out there will donate a few bucks for a book of stamps or a paperback. It really is less than a cup of Starbucks.
