Dear Blogger World,
The Media Network MNNBC is here at the prison. They are shooting film for a program called "Extended Lockup." Just hours before the MSNBC Crew arrived on the unit, guards conducted a cell shake down, and removed items from a prisoners cell. The items removed were a braided rope and dummy head. The guards then contacted the MSNBC film crew, and sold them on a story of a prisoner excape plot. The MSNBC film crew asked the guards to replant the items they had taken from the cell so that they (MSNBC) could film them finding the items.

I can see the storyline: inmate excape attempt busted!

But the reality is this... Guards knew the prisoner had these items in his cell because he kept them out in the open. What was called a rope was a thin braided up sheet that the prisoner used as a jump-rope to exercise with (most prisoners on the unit have some type of equipment prison-made they us to exercise with). The so-called dumy head was nothing more than a mask made out of toilet paper of his son's face. The prisoner is locked away 23 hours a day in a windowless cell with no TV or radio, and he makes masks and other items out of toilet paper to pass the time. All the guards knew about the mask and other items the prisoner makes because he shows them off to them).

I was appauled by the actions of the guards and the MSNBC film crew. What does it say when a big media network like MSNBC has to come into a prison and exploit prisoners and stage situations just to film for their Tv show. The prison officials and MSNBC film crew should all be ashamed of themselves. There are enough real stories in prison that you do not have to create none. Again...SHAME ON YOU MSNBC!!!
Thanks for listening!

Internet is a wonderful invention. I was watching the episode and became interested in your story since I turned on late. Glad you made it back to general pop. Thanks for exposing the truth. It was intriguing to read your thoughts in your own words.

Mr. Trotter.

You have the strongest mind/constitution of any person of which I am aware. I have never been incarcerated nor do I plan to be incarcerated. The strength that you displayed during your time in the hole is something I envy. Plus, getting your hair cut was a good idea. It looks more inviting and up-to-date. Thank you.

I do believe that we all make mistakes. does not mean we should be treated like an animal.... As for Mr. Trotter that I believe has got a raw deal with all the time, You keep holding your head high and stay stong... you have all my support

Wow, after all these years you crossed my mind and I wondered how you were doing. Of course with today's technology, I Googled you. I thought you would be out of prison by now, never knew you were serving a 142 year term. Surprise to you too. You are still the strong BLACK man you were then, to which I say stay true my brother. Continue to take care of yourself, and happy belated Soul-Day.
