PAR For the Course

From Innocence Betrayed by Raymond D. Cooke (author's profile)


PAR for the Course By: Raymond Cooke

I've always tried to act with integrity in all my dealings as far as addressing improper treatment and the condition of confinement here, "Behind the Wall."

I know that once you paint a distorted picture or offer twisted versions of the "Truth," your credibility is negated. We as prisoners already start off with diminished credibility due to the public's majority perception that we are all members of a fringe society of SICK ANTISOCIAL DEVIANT KILLERS and RAPISTS!

Being behind the eight ball like this makes it even more of a requirement that we/I operate with TRUTH and FACT!

This is what you can except when you come to read this inmate's blog, "Innocence Betrayed." A view of things from Behind the Wall as seldom heard by you the TAXPAYERS, the ones that that are lead to believe all your hard earned tax dollars in the DOC Budget *($527,991,000) is used and utilized in the best interest of public safety.

Yes I do intend to attempt to present and offer issues facts and figures that are not only credible but also verifiable by you out there.

You need to have the facts straight and it will be my mission to present them to you in a clear and true picture. My operating procedures and reporting must be as white as snow in order that I receive not only credibility from you, but to trump theirs. It's kind of a good vs. evil premise of so many stories, and I would personal like to believe those stories always turn-out with good trumping evil. So we will see.......

The system is broken, that's why I've risked becoming a target, it's everyone's responsibility to help change and break the prisoner stereotype. It's a flawed system, please help by reading and acting to bring this archaic system into modern times.

Please respond in truth as we all here behind the wall will do the same to correct these injustices.

Thank you...
