From Warrior (Letter 12)

Warrior - Serving 14 years for kidnapping and aggravated assault. Half Hispanic and Scottish-Irish with family still in Mexico. Brought up by a family steeped in drug commerce. He writes some of the best prison-fight stories on the Internet.

I’m on a Level 3 yard now, dorms and stuff. It’s fast-paced, always fights popping off, reminds me of my old neighborhood. The irony I find is that the lower the custody level, the more freedom, but the pace is faster as though we are preparing for freedom.

I’ve realized two major realities: you learn who really cares about you when you are in prison or sick. There’s no rest in prison for the weary, old or sick. In here, predators are constantly looking for prey, and those who were once prey are trying to become predators. Given that I’m ill and have lost weight, I’m in a weaker spot than I’m accustomed to. Fortunately, even though I lack strength and size now, I’ve got skills and technique to put a predator on his ass. I already had to knock two predators down, and I had to do it quick, too. Can’t let the rest of the predators smell or recognise the wounded or ill in me.

I feel bad for Warrior not being able to catch a break from all the bullshit that goes on in prison.Options at this point are far and few.He cant check into administration-segregation because that would make him appear weak and give him a bad rep in the institution. Some guys turn to drugs to escape and I dont see him taking that route. Hopefully he can ride out his ticket without too many incidents happening. Keep up the good fight Warrior!

It is true that in prison most of the prisoners revel in the discomfort of other inmates. My friend recently got out of local Laos jail he explained it to me. He said luckily he was bigger than almost everyone so he could easily have defended himself when necessary.

Yes you're absolutely right. You really do find out who truly cares for you when life slides downhill and gets ugly. Those people who stick with you, are the ones that love you.
