I just believe what I see in my guy and will see him through this shit like the last 5+ years and then some. I can join that discussion then with more profound background.

Yes Mizz, I've only been on this journey a few months. But also in that time and in the time before my husband got incarcerated I have been doing my own research regarding the prison system in America and how they're run and how they treat their prisoners. And the thing is, and will always continue to be. Is that most prisoners won't change unless the prison policy itself changes. They need to have some type of prisoner reform to combat recidivism and that right now is not being addressed.

If you read those links I sent you that is a classic example of
Shifts Blame and denial

and Reckless attitude.
He cant change unless the prison system changes. That is unrealistic thinking too.

But thats ok. When he is sitting in a Hotbox down at the Holliday unit or any other unit ,and its 115 degrees ,and he cant hear because of the fan, and he is eating a Sloppy Joe outta a Johnny sack,
he can think about how its all the systems fault. That will make him feel a whole lot better I bet.

You got that right.
Before they stopped the transfers from county on any given day 50% of the people on the bus were going for probation or Parole violations.
