Here we go again.........always someone else to blame. If they let you recreate on your own that would also be a problem. Would you have been happy to report that they pepper-sprayed you and everyone else on the yard or that you were hit by a gas ball gun?

Stand up and take responsibility for once. DOC didn't create your problem with the other inmate.

I think that's a relatively harsh comment to make Paul.

Unfortunately, the reality is that 50% of the time it is someone else's fault. Just because this man is a prisoner it doesn't mean that he is a bad man and you can assume that he is lying about the events that have taken place.

Yes, things happen in prison and it can be dangerous. But most men I know (I worked with folks in prison) learned ways to avoid problems. Especially as they got older.

Or they didn't.

It's true that you can't control anyone else. But you can control yourself and there are often many ways to stop a disagreement (especially if it is fomenting over many years).

Even in prison.

I understand that.

I just felt that by that comment, this man was stereotyped.

@Bethanie11, I can only assume by your comment that you are not familiar with Mr. Clark and his cases. He was not stereotyped (or is profiled the new hip expression.)
Perhaps a little research would open your mind to the possibility that he is trying to shift responsibility (again). He has a history of blaming others.
