I am wild. I am a daredevil. I like to try crazy things and will try anything once. My vehicle is a hot pink moped so I don't blend in with the other traffic to well. I love the outdoors and camping and hiking. Would rather live in a tent than set at home in my duplex.
I have guts and grit and have wrestled a wild animal with my bare hands when I was hiking to keep it from attacking me.
If you do good, good will happen to you, if not visibly then internally. If you do bad, you still have to live with yourself.
What Gives Me Hope
Not much hope right now to speak of.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I would be more forgiving of ex felons and make it easier for them to get good jobs and find a place in society upon release from the brutal criminal justice system. I would start looking at alternative solutions to criminal behavior rather than long term incarceration and/or civil penalties so severe that upon release the offender can not possibly make the transition back into society. The world would be better if the government would allow those that have already paid their debts to society and have been punished easier access to housing, jobs, and government benefits hence ending the high recidivism rates. People reoffend mostly because they have not the means to survive after release from custody and most need psychiatric care after incarceration because the punishment was so intense. PTSD is often the result. So why continue penalizing someone over and over again? There is a double jeopardy clause in the constitution, by the way, that protects us from being punished for the SAME crime more than once. I would learn the Constitution and apply to the letter what our founding fathers wrote as a foundation for our entire system of government. That would lower crime rates and help what society labels as SCUM be able to make it outside the prison walls. If those people have the means to make it then there is a less likely chance of reoffending.
What/who changed my life and why
My arrest changed my life because it helped me see the world from a different perspective. After the arrest I started retreating deep inside myself trying to understand what was happening around me and inside of me. It helped me help others that were going down the wrong path. To this day, I still suffer from the past crimes I comitted and do not want others to take that painful journey if they can possibly bypass it. I have strength that I would otherwise not have had I not been arrested. I see the world as it is and have a strong desire to change it. I am the person I am today because of my past and my past has made me a better person. I made it through life changing pain and can now look myself in the mirror.
