Department of inCorrections — The Recap
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Hey Playing Devils Advocate™ family, I want to extend an appreciative hand to all of you that tuned in and participated in and on last nights show “Department of inCorrections“. We had guest panelist TC and Inky as well as the surprise felon, myself Todd Fountaine. Sassy and Sporty Angel held the chat room down while our resident legal expert, Ikiesha Al- Shabazz broke down all the legalities of the judicial system and of course, the leader of our gang (pun intended) KiKi Richardson kept the order in the court and the crowd in control.
We spoke in depth about prison life, our life after being released and the people that were affected by our decisions and consequences. The chat room had a few folks that knew a little to much about the prison system for them to be goodie goodies and I think some may have had cases pending.
Sporty Angel, who does outstanding research, gave us some surprising statistics concerning the races of people who make up the majority of the prison population and the circumstances that lead up to those ethnic groups being the largest contributor to the judicial economic machine.
Our guest panelist TC, also gave us the flip side of what its like to be a FEMALE inmate inside the sexist prison environment. Rape and extortion is even more prevalent in female prisons but is seldom openly discussed.
Some of the questions we were asked were:
- What went through your mind when you got sentenced?
- What was the first night in prison like?
- What was something you witnessed (or was a part of) that was so traumatic that you will never forget?
- How does being incarcerated affect relationships and the family dynamic?
- Who is more crooked? The inmates, the correctional officers or the prison system?
- How difficult is it to re-enter society after incarceration?
…and that’s just a partial list!! So if you want to find out the real deal about our lives of crime, fast money and fast cars that lead us behind the prison bars, you have to listen to the archives.
Love and respect,
p.s. (The “Ask PDA” letter was perfectly appropriate based on our topic! You must listen for our panel’s advice to the letter writer! At the very end, we tipped over into “Extended Conversations” to finish our discussion that led to felons in sports during Rocky’s Sports Ring! That was a heated discussion too!!!)
Uncensored, Unscripted, UNAPOLOGETIC!!!
