Triple R: How is everybody doing? I want to introduce you all to my new writing partner G Status A.K.A. Erroll Sheperd.
G: What's up you all, nice to meet everybody. This is my first time blogging but my book with Rick Ross isn't my first, I have a fiction street lit book that is going to be released in July entitled, "Pedal to the Metal", so be on the look out.
Triple R: G Status and I are from the same background and street of L.A., and we take our children's situation seriously. I believe in the theory that an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. With that said, this is what we were talking about at lunch today. The Warden makes 150 thousand dollars a year for baby sitting grown men, and rehabilitation has been thrown out the door. G Status you been down quite awhile in the Bureau of Prison, what's your take on the subject?
G: Well Rick, like you said, I have been down quite awhile, and I've seen some of the pettiest, insecure, childish, rude, and inconsiderate staff members with rank ranging from correctonal officers to Wardens who take their power and authority and use it on prisoners (that are mainly non-violent) to vent their personal hang-ups, misconceptions, and stereotypes. Rick, the judge sentenced each and every one of us to a certain amount of time, he didn't sentence us to do this time to be subjected to harsh and silly treatment from various staff members.
Triple R: I totally agree. I think the main problem with a lot of these officers, outside their jealousy and envy is the fact that they've never been trained.
G: As a matter of fact, the same test that a garbage man took to be a garbage man is the same equivalance to the test that a correctional officer takes to work in law enforcement.
Triple R: G Status, I didn't know that, but you left out passing their first U.A. and not coming to work drunk during their initial orientation.
G: That's real, Rick, but how do we as convicts who are about to be ex-convicts very soon fix the relationship between staff and prisoners?
Triple R: I think that we should understand that we all should be working towards the same goals to help each person become a law abiding citizen.
G: I feel that, Rick, but I like that theory of yours a lot more, where you said an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. I personaly don't think that there is a cure. There will never be an accurate way to hire the right people, or will there ever be a way to change the hearts, hidden agendas, and ulterior motives of men. We should set up some type of way to keep our children from becoming victims of circumstances so that they won't fall victim to these perverted law enforcement agencies just like the book we wrote, Rick, which also happens to be entitled 'Victim of Circumstances."
Triple R: What it all boils down to G status is in the end we are all going to have to respect each other, and show each other love.
