Inmate Blog Category:More About Me


Loyalty. Respect. Family. Those words have so much meaning believe it or not most people don’t truly understand what they mean. Most often they misuse them more ways than one. To me I don’t ever take them lightly or handle them with a no care attitude. I’ve been in relationships and friendships where I truly gave myself out there 100 percent because that’s me, an all-in it type of guy (that’s how I was raised) just to be lead on then crushed. If you ever experienced that, you know like I do, that it sucks to devote yourself and your time to a cause or to someone who could careless or doesn’t value your worth. It leaves you feeling like all you have in this world is you. That’s how I used to feel for a while until God reminded me I’m not alone. That’s the crazy thing, you will find yourself swearing nobody cares- man how did this happen. While we're forgetting that the one who truly cares has always been there and maybe he wanted us to go through some situations to show us better things. I believe that so much because my childhood was rough; I look back and it’s a blessing I’m alive and so positive. Going through life we didn’t have much. It made me appreciate what I did have. It gave me a hunger to want better for my future and my future family. That’s why I don’t play when it comes to my education. By far it’s the best tool you can have for yourself. "Knowledge", it’s the one thing nobody can take away from you. You can’t achieve anything in life if you’re stuck at level one. I’m currently enrolled in school but that’s just the start. I’ve been writing a book which I’m about to get it published and currently laying out my blue prints of my new business adventure out. Like I said earlier, don’t ever let your past or anything someone said define you; it’s your life, make it worth your while. Take advantage of your full potential ... I’m more than your average man. I’m greatness in the making… This is just a glimpse at one angle. I never look down only up. It’s been good to talk well feel free to write. Yours truly, Devonte

Inmate Blog Category:More About Me


What does one say to the world if given the chance to be heard after twenty plus years? I would say it’s great to meet you and the pleasure is all mine! I’m a man that is humbled by life, but in the process was given the strength to live it. My hunger is for freedom, and let nothing get in the way of that! With that being said, I’m looking to meet new and interesting people. I’m hoping to develop and experience meaningful friendship. The important things, such as sincerely, strength and laughter. I hope to one day be that blessing to others that they might be to me. (Loyalty and trust are key to me.) Unfortunately, this profile denies the world from experiencing and witnessing my sparking personality and charisma firsthand (smile). However I am up to the challenge of arousing your curiosity through words. Thanks for your time…

WHAT DUDES BE ON

What dudes be on I wonder what the gallery will be like today. Will the brothers snap on each other down the way, or maybe somebody will get upset at someone talking politics, but instigate conflict between guys over crap. It's funny how quiet guys are when they serve a bad meal, but make an attempt to stand on each other like they're real, they won't file a grievance or pursue a lawsuit, but will beat each other down and give each other the boot. These prisons have become a sanctuary, a safe haven for weak men, that pull female traits and be image chasers behind steel doors. Dudes that get down like this are embraced like they're in, so they continue to hide among real brothers and men. I don't know if I am the only one that sees what dudes be on, because sometimes I feel as though I am living in a twilight zone, where chuckhole gangsters are treated like real heroes, and stand up dudes like they're nothing but zeroes. What really makes this so unreal and a warped fantasy is that guys will hate you if you explain how situations are supposed to be. This is really sad because things have gone wrong, but what can I say other than that's what dudes be on. True statement. PS: If you're looking for someone who's perfect, then I'm not someone who you would like to know, because my life is far from being perfect. If you're looking for someone who's willing to tell you sweet lies, just for the sake of communication, then I am not the person who you would want in your life, because not only do I know how to communicate with people and get my message across, but my life is far from falsehood. It's no fake advertisement with me. We as a people know that authentic people are a minority nowadays, and if you're looking for someone who's authentic, then reach out to me and lets take it from there.

GODLINESS

Cleanliness is next to Godliness. I know ya'll heard that saying before but do you quite understand what it means. Cleanliness has to start within yourself first. It’s a sign of spiritual purity to vow to stay clean for God. It’s a life change. Clean means to stay away from anything evil negativity, curse words, bad self-image, greed, speaking of evil and many others. When you are saying this phrase you implying that God is in you and you’re vowing to remain free from negative things because godliness doesn’t play with those things. Godliness is sweet, kind, loving, sharing, nurturing, giving and compassionate. You must change you for the better to experience all that god has to offer. It’s being a lady and portraying it. Its having your outer beauty match the inside beauty. Its representation that you’re different, you’re whole, clean, and nothing can touch you or tell you otherwise. Remember only good things come from God. Please feel free to write ladies Yours truly, Devonte

Yes, on my profile it says that I am a Wiccan. In which I am! No, I do not worship Satan nor any of his evil minions. This of course is today’s and yesterday’s common misconceptions, “that all pagans worship Satan” or “Unknowingly worship Satan in disguise”. I beg to differ. For some time now I’ve known that the common conventional religions (Christianity, Islam, Catholic or Judaism) were not for me. I’ve partaken in the conventional religions over my years but none were fitting for me! None held my attention for long or my heart, until Wicca. I’m from an urban town in the Bronx (High Bridge) and culturize on urban belief systems. My mother is a steadfast Christian and my father has been a part of Islam since his birth. My mother somehow believes that by me joining Wicca is just “another one of my rebellious acts against the church” LOL. This couldn’t be any farther away from the truth. Most of my closest friends are a part of different denominations of different religions, it’s more that I really believe in what my religion preaches and live by. Most importantly I’ve reached my destination not by any other hand or influence but by me. My own knowledge, wisdom, intuition and hunger for my religion, led me to my religion. My religion led me to believe in that my will (the stronger it is) could create, could make anything possible for me and would make me a better person in life.

WOODY’S BLOG

2016 - 1. My daughter found me this year after 12 years. I hope to build a relationship and make up for lost time. I really missed her. 2. Great year for our Paws-for-Life Program. We have trained 78 dogs that were slated for death and most have been adopted to forever homes. Two of the dogs I was responsible to train went to children with autism. 3. We (Paws-for-Life) cared for 50 deaf dogs that were evacuated from Deaf Dogs Rescue of America, in Acton, due to the Los Angeles County “Sand Fire”. We took care of them like they were our own. The owners were proud and grateful to us. We even made the news (July 2016). 4. Cal State University – Los Angeles came this year giving 23 students with AA degrees a chance to earn a Bachelor’s degree; unheard of before in here. I took four classes this year and received three A’s and one B. It was a lot of work. 2017 – 1. Good start for the Paws for Life Program. We start training service dogs this year. I am one of the ten trainers that was picked for this special training program. 2. the Family Visiting Program is being reinstated for Life sentenced prisoners as a positive programming incentive.

DIALOGUE WITH ELIJAH TITLE: WHY ARE WE AFRAID OF TRANSITION?

We develop habits, characteristics and flaws due to the environment we’re raised in. The things we see on a daily basis are what becomes the norm for us in our lives. In that world and the life you’re living, sometimes we’re not aware that some things are actually wrong or even bad for us. Because we see these things too much and they happen very often around you, it becomes acceptable and normal. It’s as if it’s natural and also instinctive in our minds and reactions. The negativity, violence, crime, poverty, drugs and disunity but as we get older we become wiser and start wanting better for ourselves. We fear what we don’t know and reject what we don’t understand in life. Most people want to change but they fear change because change takes us out of our element and comfort zone. We have to change our mentality, behavior, habits and flaws, we just don’t want to give up things that we’re used to and comfortable with. Because we know those things and they come so naturally. I’m here to tell you, nothing stays the same in life, everything changes or transition. If it happens too late then it won’t blossom or take on its full effect. Transition is a work of progress because it won’t happen overnight but the first steps to transition is determination and discipline. Because you must have self control to face life’s adversities on your journey to transition. I can’t tell you that I’m a changed man but what I can tell you is that I’ve changed a lot. I’ve changed a lot about who I am, and who I want to become. I’m still a work in progress myself, but I’m no longer afraid or fear transition.

Today I’m just going to reflect on the state of the criminal justice system. Ah, another disgruntled inmate complaining about “the system” – how unique and unheard of! I’ll, however, give you a clear example of how rigged our system is between rich defendants and the poor defendants. Our Supreme Court has ruled that indigent defendants are entitled to counsel during their direct appeal after conviction. In California that means the California Appellate Project assigns an attorney to your case even if you represented yourself in trial. You cannot refuse this counsel and you cannot represent yourself in your direct appeal. I know because I tried and was denied this right – even though 95% of the counsel appointed do not do a competent job. So, across the country, each state Must supply counsel for indigent defendants for their direct appeal. But once the state denies this direct appeal and the indigent defendant files his appeal in the Federal Court – He Is Not Given Counsel! Our Supreme Court currently says a defendant has the constitutional guarantee for counsel in the state level for his direct appeal but No Right in any Federal Court for the same appeal! Many lawyers currently provide services for Federal review but only the rich defendants can utilize them. Finally, it should be noted, only 1-3% of all writs filed in Federal Court are granted. Not very surprising, is it? How fair is it that a constitutional right only applies to the individual States and not the Federal courts? I’m curious – where are you? I’m, as always, welcoming and answering all who respond – but I do wish I could hear from the woman who seeks stimulating conversation and loyalty, the one who is open to finding something real yet outside the box. Write me – I’m waiting…

LIFE CHANGES

I came to prison in 2010 and had a decision to make: waste away for 10 years, continuing down a path of self-destruction, destroying relationships and hurting the people that I love or use that time to accept where I was, look deep into my soul, identify and learn from my past mistakes and flawed thinking and steer my life in a positive direction forever. It’s 7 years later and I thank God that I chose to change my life and learn to help others in need instead of wasting away. I started my transformation by thinking of and helping others. I spent 5 years working in the prison infirmary learning to help others in need of daily care. This was challenging and rewarding at the same time. I am now a full time hearing helper for a friend of mine. I also donate my time as part of the prison hospice program. Nobody deserves to die alone. Every day I reflect upon what led to my failures in my life and what I should have done differently, so that it never happens again. With God’s word and thought, I have a good foundation to build a new life by the renewing of my mind and healing from the inside out. I want people to see the new person I am. When the time is right, I hope to have the opportunity to heal broken relationships from my past.

VALENTINE'S DAY

I have a special announcement to make to all the beautiful women around the world: I would like to say ~~“Happy Valentine’s Day to You!”~~ I hope that your significant other will take advantage of this special occasion and spoil you rotten with lots of candy, flowers, a candle-lit dinner, and lingerie...I would! Hi, my name is Pete Russell. In my 43 years of living I’ve faced trials and tribulations just like everyone else. I’ve learned some hard lessons, and they weren’t always viewed as lessons all the time. As the result of stubbornness, it took me a couple of times to put things in perspective. The man I am today has a lot of time to think. To analyze. I believe that everyone we encounter in our lives is for a reason. Negativity breeds negativity, so I try to surround myself with positive energy, and positive people. Question: Is it “taboo” for a man and a woman to be true “friends”? I believe that is where truly inspiring energy comes from. Man and woman are naturally bonded, and there’s nothing like a woman’s perspective. It is a perspective that I would genuinely appreciate in my life. To have that type of friend creates a drive, feeds you spiritually, and motivates you to keep pushing. That is the missing puzzle piece in my life right now. If I said something that sparked an interest, please feel free to write me back. I’m waiting for your letter! Sincerely, Pete
