Boy isn't that the truth. We are told to do things in prison and because were in shackles its acceptable.... but once we've paid the price of our crimes, back into the world we go with a big stamp on our foreheads: damaged goods, violent criminal, dangerous! We pay for the rest of our lives for something we had the misfortune of getting caught for. meanwhile the doctors and lawyers of the world keep on making money because they simply did not get caught!
