Inmate Blog Category:Prison Life


I promised to begin a blog about legal issues- but since no one has yet responded to my ad, I do not know if anyone out there is even interested in discussing legal questions. So, for this segment I’ll simply ask a constitutional question to see if anyone is listening. In California, you can file a 995(b) motion to dismiss the case for lack of probable cause after your preliminary hearing. If denied, you can then appeal your denial pre-trial in accordance with Penal Code 999(a). These are facts. The question is: does a timely filed motion pursuant to 999(a) to dismiss the case for lack of probable cause remove subject matter jurisdiction from the trial court pending completion of the pre-trial appeal- and can you continue the pre-trial appeal through federal levels of appellate review? Enough of that, I have my new dog, Rocky, here with me now until December 13, which is our graduation. He’s a 75 pound Pointer/Dalmatian mix, and so calm and intelligent! He’s going to make someone a great companion and I’m going to miss him a lot!!! I’ve remembered pure love through this program. I can say that it hurts more doing time alone now because I know love again, but I wouldn’t change anything…except this, the only part missing is someone to share this joy and happiness with more intimately than through a blog- so where are you? Till next time……..

Since I am confined I know and I face everyday politics and the (of course) ones who are our “jailhouse politicians lol. There’s so much controversy, envy, jealousy, slander and of course our dealings with the people who get paid just to watch and manage us (SMH) (that’s another story). Point being Hillary Clinton has been through it all and still she stands tall. Yes the private email server and the Benghazi attack now rival the Watergate scandal as one of the most reported stories in political history but she’s (I feel) is more (extensively) qualified than Donald Trump! I wasn’t able to see or hear the “debate” between the two candidates (because I’m in a little situation right now) (another long story) but from what I hear she was magnificent. I may be a little biased because I’m a democrat but either we can vote for a man who is widely considered one of the most unqualified persons to ever run for president or cast a ballot for a woman whose qualifications for the job exceed those of just about any other candidate in the modern era. Electing the first woman president would be a revolutionary act as terrifying to some as it is thrilling to others. And I quote Hillary Clinton’s long time aid Jennifer Klein, “She is somebody who wants to be president for all the right reasons”. Politics!!

HAPPINESS

Happiness~~ We live our lives in the hopes that just one more thing will complete our happiness. The ego’s conditioned thought is that something is missing and so we look for the missing piece to bring us salvation. And yet, no matter how many things we purchase, gather, and collect, we still feel as if something’s missing. Indeed, there is the unconditional awareness that nothing is missing. We are, in truth, complete and whole already. “Nothing can make you happy if you won’t accept for yourself that happiness rests within you.”

ENCOURAGEMENT

Hello World, well first of, all I hope everyone can bear with me on this because I wasn’t a social media person out there and I don’t have a clue as to how to begin a blog, but I’m willing to try; sorry (smile). Just thought I can share some of my thoughts with you all. You know, there comes a time when a person’s back is against the wall and they can’t seem to find a way out, or they feel as if the world is coming down on them. Now I’m not trying to preach, but I’m just here to encourage people that feel that way or similar. I’ve felt this way at a point of time when everything was basically taken from me. Life is full of ups and downs but it’s what you make out of every situation that counts. You live and learn through experiences and the decisions you make in life. People may judge or think what they want to think but you have to be strong mentally, physically, and emotionally within yourself so you move forward and come out strong. You never know how strong you can be until being strong is the only choice you have. Stand tall against the rain. I’m just glad that tis rodeo is almost past me because through all the “blood, sweat, and tears”, I’m finally able to say that “I’m ready”.

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.

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…

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
