On my day of sentencing, the Judge slammed down his gavel, had me chained and shackled and sentenced me to two, 10 year concurrent terms in Federal Prison. Over the next decade, I was shuttled off between HIGH, MEDIUM, LOW, and MINIMUM security federal institutions.
In my travels, I saw people, regular people just like you, being given the run-around and being fed misinformation by predatory inmates and uncaring BOP Staff. The BOP, like all federal bureaucracies, operates with its very own complex set of rules called “Program Statements.”
The only problem is, BOP Staff routinely fail to follow them, and make up rules at whim…creating additional chaos and confusion in inmates lives. Over the years, as I traveled from one dysfunctional prison to another, I opened my eyes, and taught myself the SYSTEM and learned how to fight back and win by working within the rules.
