From T-Bone (Letter 70)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter from Arizona prison:

Can you imagine how dangerous it is for guys who steal in this place? But there’s always those who think they can do whatever. This jerk came into my cell and tried to steal my stamps and toothpaste and even my shoes. I threw him out by the back of the neck.

Now this is where it gets crazy: he went to the next door down and took another guys ID. He went to the inmate store and got the guy’s store order, came back to the building and tried to act like he did nothing wrong. Well, the guy next door found out what he had done and almost the whole yard wanted to kill him. They wanted his ass anyway.

I told the guy he stole from to let him go. They took the guy to the service centre, and then off the yard. Man, there are some crazy people in these places, who always do things that show they need help, but the system is designed to warehouse instead of helping people to change. We are the difference makers. The old me would have kicked the crap out of him, but now I see how we are influenced to think negatively, by evil, that kind of thinking becomes a culture, and it’s time to break the cycle.

After Prison Show Interview

Just did a podcast with Joe Guerrero (video above). I first recognised Joe's amazing ability to tell a story when he wrote to me in 2014 about getting pee tested in prison. Since his release 2 years ago, Joe has inspired prisoners and young people across the world by his meteoric rise on YouTube, where he now stars in the After Prison Show, which has over half a million subscribers. You can watch his videos here.

From T-Bone (Letter 69)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter from Arizona prison:

I’ve been having to keep cool because of this youngster named King. There are people who you can get into it with and you deal with them and they hit you and it’s over, and then there’s those who one has to hurt severely or maybe even leave to die. You have to make a choice to either walk away so that he you go home or take it to a very dark place.

This guy King is really asking for trouble in the worst way. He is serving all day [life] and has the attitude of one who says he has nothing to lose, and wants everyone to be afraid of him in this environment, but there are those who don’t leave. It’s very serious. This guy is a real asshole. He talks to people all the time like he doesn’t bleed. But I know how things are gonna work or be with this guy: he is going get hurt very badly or even worse because he won’t stop opening the door to evil. He doesn’t understand how things work, and man can it get ugly in this place! You know me and you can see and hear how serious it is.

I stopped a guy from going after him the other day and he doesn’t get it. He keeps being disrespectful to people and it’s because he’s angry at himself because he has a lot of time to do. It’s a real dangerous situation. This guy has nothing to lose. Well, as you know, I am trusting in God for help and I do know that I must make the right decision.

Each one
Teach one
