    The March of the Super Rats
    It’s a common cliché that everyone suddenly finds God when they come to prison. Misery and despair are religions most successful recruiters. When I first came to prison, the old timers used to tell the young wild boys: “They’re gonna make your ass a believer.” Now I know what they meant. People often tell me “Leave it to the man upstairs,” but that doesn’t sound proactive enough for me. If the man upstairs sent his only son on a suicide mission, I don’t even want to know what kind of excitement

    I live with hundreds of “Alpha Males” that were plucked from every neighborhood, town, and city across New York State. After getting to know many of them, I’ve come to the conclusion that “Alpha Male” is just another term for “Asshole”. Whether they’re from Buffalo, Albany, or New York City, most of them have certain qualities in common. The dictionary defines them as “socially dominant” individuals, but all that actually means is that they are overbearing, confrontational, petty, relentless,

    Caught in the Trenches
    On one of the first visits I had with Marley Davis, the woman who is writing a book about my case, I came down to the visit with a black-eye. “This looks just great”, I’m thinking to myself as I walk down to the visiting floor. I was relieved to see my friend, Old Man John, on the visit. I figured I’d let him explain why I had a shiner, being that he was the reason it all happened in the first place. Old Man John is about 65 years old, and in a wheel chair. He made a deal with a Jamaican guy

    Baptism of Fire
    Imagine the worst day of your life. Can you remember what it was and how you felt? The day something devastating happen to you. Maybe a life changing illness or injury, or news of a loved one dying. Think about whatever it was that made it unbearable and try to relive the pain, hopelessness, and despair that you felt. Now imagine living that day, and feeling those emotions every day, for the rest of your life, with no end in sight. That is my daily reality, and it takes everything I have to not

    Family Ties and Government Lies
    Al Cleary’s de facto alibi was that he was at his house with Angel Dipietro, and despite the fact that Albert’s bedroom window was less than 50 feet away from the crime scene, both Al and Angel claim they “didn’t hear any shots”. Even though 13 separate households, including some all the way up the block, heard shots roaring in the night. First, when I went over the police reports, I saw that everyone Angel spoke to about this crime scene said she either acted suspicious, wasn’t open about

    Incestuous Bedfellows
    Imagine you are at a little league sports game to cheer for your young relative (child, grandchild, younger sibling, niece, nephew, whoever). Picture their innocence and sense of fair play being shattered by the umpire or referee, who happens to be related to a member of the opposing team, and who was calling every play against your kid’s team. Even the ones that obviously should have gone your way. How would you feel? How do you think your kid would feel if it kept happening and happening and

    The Wall
    For some reason, many people in society think that everyone in prison feigns innocence. In reality, 90% of the prison population copped out. Which means they took a plea deal (pled guilty) in order to get less time. If just 30% of all accused persons took their case to trial, the burden of expenses associated with that would bankrupt our nation’s budget. As a deterrence, examples are made out of the select few who exercise their right to be tried. This discourages others from fighting their

    Radical Islam is a big topic of debate among our presidential candidates, but it doesn’t matter who you want to win. There is something you should know about, because most of the public seems to be clueless and the situation is much worse then you can imagine. I have passed through 7 different correctional facilities in the past 12 years and in every one of them there is an alarming trend taking place. There is a huge movement in the United States prisons and jails that will spill over into our
