From T-Bone (Letter 53)

T-Bone is a massively-built spiritual ex-Marine, who uses fighting skills to stop prison rape. T-Bone’s latest letter from Arizona prison:

The Mexicans and the Mexican Americans had a riot today. I was about to go out of the cell door, when I saw a tall Mexican stab the leader of the Mexican-Americans in the face and eyeball. Everybody started fighting.

What’s sad is that the guards knew it was going to happen. To prevent riots, they usually call in the heads of the gangs, and talk to them to stop the whole mess.

To stop the riot, they brought a guard with a dog and chemical-sprayed a bunch of people. God knows how many. Can you believe these guards? The spray got all over me. It was extremely nasty. It will take you to your knees and take all of the fight out of you.

Now we’re locked down. All of the guards are stood around talking and laughing.

When you think about stuff like this, you see the waste. The prisoners could be doing something to help society, like working or getting educations. Instead, they have grown men sitting around each and every day, doing nothing except drugs like heroin, meth and spice, and scheming against each other, and then they wonder why things like riots happen!

Please say hi to the students at the T-BoneAppreciation Society, and let them know I do think about them and they are in my prayers.
