This is awesome dude. Your hard work and diligence has really changed your life for the better. Keep up the good work and keep inspiring people to do the same.~Big Jason
well i reckon the haters can just pish off, i think your topsJae xx
Just had to 'find' you to say how amazing I think you are for going out to the kids. To survive jail and come through that hell, still a decent caring man, incredible! If you save one kid, and I'm certain you will save many, then you have more than made up for your 'lapse'. Although your parents were hurt, they must be so proud of you. Good luck with everything you do.Sharon

Over 600 comments at yahoo now. Here's my response to the negative ones:To the people who are skeptical of this stuff going on in America, I urge you to see how real this is by watching videos of guards and gang members murdering prisoners in the jail I was at. The videos are presently at the top of my blog, Jon’s Jail Journal, which you can go to by clicking on the hyperlink in this Yahoo article or at my YouTube channel “derickatt”. One video shows Arpaio's guards murdering Marty Atencio, a Latino war hero accused of kicking a door. Marty isn't attacking anyone when they grab him, throw him down, beat him, Taser him, and he has a heart attack and dies. To those of you who want US style justice in the UK, please bear in mind Phoenix, Arizona which has the toughest jail also has the highest crime and reoffending rates in the US. The jail has paid out over $50 million in lawsuits and has $50 million more pending. The UK media is softening the UK public up for US style justice with headlines about cushy UK jail conditions, video games, etc. This is the same strategy the corporations used to promote the war in Iraq. Private prisons get $40,000 per year per prisoner, and numerous contractors get taxpayers money as well. Money from a guards union and a prison telephone service provider was behind the introduction of the three strikes law in California.Certain states in the US are spending more on prisons than on education, and the politicians are receiving massive political contributions from the corporations to keep it that way. 1 in 100 adults is in prison in the US where there's now over 1 mill arrests a year for weed, 9 out of 10 petty possession, all to keep the profits flowing. Nearly everyone in the US now has a family member or knows someone in prison. It's all well and good to call for US justice in the UK until someone you know ends up inside getting crippled or beaten to death by gang members or guards.
Well I know the life of a famous writer can be tough...dealing with all of the love/hate, but you can handle it. Three hundred responses?? Pretty impressive.Prison Mom
its almost 1000 comments, and 1000's of responses to comments, the article is the 3rd most read on yahoo, with millions of readers, the journalist had no idea it would go viral like this, and they are looking to do a second article when party time comes out
