    Yeah sure. women are all angels who never do bad things because they're bad people...they just 'make mistakes', 'get led astray' or 'had no other choice' etc etc etc. Poor delicate flowers. there, there. its ok. the pu$$y-pass will make sure you get a lesser sentence.

    Men, of course, are never like this.

    What I find fascinating - and remember, I consider these people as human beings regardless of their crimes, regardless of any excuse they may bring out to justify their actions - is how many men and women insist that their crimes, their actions do not define them. I love that phrase 'it does not define me' or 'I have not let it define me'. The thing is, as we see from your comment here, Girl On Fire, it has defined them, as criminals for the rest of their lives, no matter what they do. Sadly they are often seen as criminals and nothing more than that, which makes this site and the idea of writing to prisoners rather futile, doesn't it....

    I don't believe it's futile at all. Were not really here to change them are we. Even unchangeable assholes need friends, need people to love them and just know someone cares.

    book.(about the history here in Canada) but it's been along time
    since 1867.
