THE RATE OF RECIDIVISM IN AMERICA IS EXTREMELY HIGH - 95% OF ALL INMATES INCARCERATED WILL BE RELEASED - 67% OF THOSE RELEASED WILL RETURN TO PRISON IN (3) YEARS OR LESS!

"This is a deplorable situation - It should be of major concern to all Americans."-


"REHABILITATION PROGRAMS FOR OFFENDERS CAN BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN INCARCERATION"
OUR STRATEGIC PURPOSE IS TO REDUCE THE PERCENTAGE OF THOSE WHO RECIDIVATE!

Gainful tax paying employment, educational opportunities, decent housing and counseling are all relevant in cutting back recidivism -

Our goal is to provide experienced counselors throughout the country for newly released offenders who are available to assist with the various problems encountered upon their return to society. A suicide hot line especially for those men and women is an intragal service which we offer. Suicide among prisoners housed in jails and prisons has been on the rise. Often these events go unreported. -



Upwards of Seven Million Adults Are Under Correctional Supervision (probation, parole, pre trial release, jail or prison) in America. -
"APPROXMATELY 2.3 MILLION ARE BEHIND BARS - "


Unchained Lives Matter additionaly provide information, resources, and educational materials to the public at large; and especially for the families of those former offenders on probation or parole.

Americans are guaranteed freedom of the press by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, however the negative state of the criminal justice system throughout the country is a topic which is vastly under reported. Many analytical studies show the three componets of criminal justice to be broken and in need of vast improvement. The billions of dollars spent in this area could support so many other social service projects that would benefit everyone. Only ten percent of those incacerated are wards of the federal government. The vast majority of resources are expended by the states. Restructuring the criminal justice accross the board must be one of the next major social reform projects. More strigent laws as tried in the past to eradicate this problem failed and can not be expected to bring a solution especially at this time.

Legal procedures and the way courts operate have been revised and reorginized but injustice remains. Injustice is an age old problem. In too many instances "justice" is available but depends on a person's ability to hire an expensive attorney.

LAW ENFORCEMENT - WE WANT THEM TO BE OUR HEROES

When asked why he was apprehended Willie Sutton, prison escape artist who robbed over 100 banks beginning in the 1930s, and stealing around (2) million dollars replied; "There are just too many of them (police)." Presently there are upwards of 750,00 law enforcement officers in the United States with authority to make arrests. For the most part they do not meet up with professional criminals like "Slick Willie."

We have all heard accounts of police brutality and shooting by the police of unarmed black men, and the revenge homicides and woundings of police in response. If left unchecked this situation will likely become worse.

Additionally, being arrested or simply detained; there are all too many reports of suspects being roughed up, threatend, intimidated and tricked into admitting guilt. Some complaints alledge police falsely charge misdemeanor crimes such as obstruction of justice, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, vagrancy, and others in retaliation when their authority is questioned.

Lawyers typically advise not to talk to police when suspected of any violation of law because your explaination can be used against you or turned around to establish guilt. Any overt encounter or experience involving the police is long remembered. A $150.00 ticket for not clicking a seat belt is not by order of the officer charging the offense because he/she is actually enforcing an unpopular law decided by politicians. The officer in the eyes of the person paying the fine although is likely held responsible and blamed.

The police are not the enemy of the people and should not be subject to ambush or assault. The abuse and killing of civilians cannot continue.
There must be a satisfactory end to all of these things. These and other serious problems which concern the criminal justice system as a whole must be resolved.

Most police officers and their supervisors are aware of the idenity of fellow officers who habitually engage in unprofessional and arrogant behaviour. Corrupt, rude and bully cops do exist but should not be tolerated. They give police officers everywhere an undesireable, questionable reputation. They should be weeded out by the very officers who work with them for any misuse of authority and warrant no loyality. Police misconduct should be addressed and prevented at the very source. Regardless of their rank, police now share the negative consequences for the actions of a few bad cops. As higher standards preavail increased community support will follow.

All community residents including those who are suspects or placed under arrest, should have the expectation of courtesy, respect and professionalism from their officers who usually are part of the same community.

The ancient Greek term for hero is "protector". Heroes are capable of leadership and resolve problems which confront society. They will not hesitate to place themselves in danger to save others. Police officers can and should embody the positive values that this country stands for. They are our protectors and should be admired and respected as they were in the wake of the terrorists attacks in New York on 9-11.

People everywhere need heroes and the police are an obvious choice. We should defend our police officers with a sense of mutual respect, honesty, friendship and good will. Cops and all those that depend on them must stand together. No other group has the potential to be the heroes that we need and trust as the local police officers who serve our communities and are our legitimate protectors.

LIFE BEGINS WHEN YOU ARE BORN AND ONCE AGAIN WHEN YOU ARE RELEASED FROM INCARCERATION" -

President Nixon's "War on Drugs" in 1971, to a great extent became a war on the American people. The "war" was inherited by the other adminstrations which followed. President Clinton's "Crime Bill" in 1994, sought to bring about an even tougher stance on crime. Many researchers say this get tough policy spawned and became the source of mass racist incarceration. It paved the way for manditory sentencing and longer prison terms in general. An army of 100,000 new police officers with authority to make arrests, were hired in support of the Crime Bill which was the largest crime legislation in U.S. history. Additionally, inmates in federal and state penal institutions were denied Pell Grants which paid tuition for higher learning. Lower income inmates who would benefit the most could no longer afford to obtain a college degree while in prison which could serve to change their lives forever.

WHEN WE ARE ARRESTED, CHAINED AND LOCKED UP, WE ARE IN A DIFFERENT PLACE- WE ARE NO LONGER IN AMERICA. PRISONERS EXPERIENCE SOME OF THE HOPELESSNESS, DISTRESS AND DESPERATION AS THE AFRICANS WHO WERE FIRST BROUGHT HERE AS SLAVES IN 1619. -


All I ask is a square deal for every man. Give him a fair chance. Do not let him wrong anyone and do not let him be wronged.

Theodore Roosevelt - May 6, 1903


Each year upwards of 650,000 inmates are released back into society

UNTOLD NUMBERS OF INMATES REMAIN BEHIND BARS IN COUNTY AND LOCAL JAILS ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE COMMITTED ONLY MINOR VIOLATIONS. THEY ARE COMPELLED TO SERVE EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME AND ARE NOT RELEASED DUE ONLY TO THEIR INABILITY TO PAY COURT IMPOSED FINES OR COSTS -


RULES, REGULATIONS AND LAWS MUCH OF WHICH WERE ADOPTED IN THE PAST ACCOUNT FOR THE NEGATIVE FRAMEWORK AND OPPRESSION BY CRIMINAL JUSTICE AS IT HAS EVOLVED. CERTAIN BASELESS ATTITUDES AND ANTIQUATED CONCEPTS PER THE TREATMENT OF INMATES IN CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES AND DISPROPORTIONAL SENTENCING BY SEATED JUDGES WHO FOLLOW POLITICAL DECISIONS CONTINUE. NEW SUBJECTIVE CONCEPTS HAVE BEEN PROMOTED BUT TOO OFTEN PRISONERS ARE SEEN AS EXPENDABLE EXPERIMENTS WHO HAVE NO VOICE OR AVENUE OF COMPLAINT. GENERAL DECISIONS CONCERNING PROBATION AND PAROLE OFTEN HAVE AN ADVERSE AFFECT ON OFFENDERS WHO WANT TO RESTART THEIR LIVES.

THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM CONSISTS OF THREE SEPERATE BUT CONNECTED COMPONENTS:
LAW ENFORCEMENT . THE COURTS . CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTIONS



For America to maintain it's civility there must be enforceable laws or new regulations without which there is anarchy. Yet too many laws are not in anyone's best interest. Some laws challenge our liberty and freedom; are questionable, unclear and are difficult to uphold or apply as intended.

Citations for numerious moving and parking violations which vary from state to state generate enmorious sums of money. Not only can we be punished through incarceration; We are punished through the assessment of unreasonable fines as well. The millions of Americans who are minimum wage earners, those on Social Security, fixed incomes, and the middle class who work for wages can not afford the high cost of these fines which have the potential to cause extreme hardship. Do these exorbitant fines makes anyone of us more safe? Does the amount of money were are forced to pay relate to keeping us free from danger?

In addition too the costs levied by the government, these violations allow for an "elaborate scheme" by private industry which goes unchecked . Insurance companies raise premiums , credit scores are downgraded, employment opportunities are lessened and some professional licenses can be denied. Insurance companies donate radar machines to law enforcement. Are these tax deductible donations in the interest of public safety or too encourage and enable more traffic citations which translate into higher insurance premiums?

APPROXMATELY 2.7 MILLION CHILDREN IN THE U.S. HAVE ONE PARENT IN PRISON

When a parent is released on parloe it should be a happy event for the family especially for his/her children. But after returning to the community only to be sent back to prison again can be a tragic time in particular in the lives of young children. Unchained Lives Matter was formed to aid in the prevention of occurances that cause this - To reduce the rate of parole violation. "THAT THEY SHOULD NOT RETURN TO PRISON."

There is no Government Money - "There is only taxpayer money" - To house each prisoner costs upwards of $67.50, per day. Everyone who pays taxes should be concerned with this drain on American resources. Preventing recidivism is the concern of all Americans.

NEWLY RELEASED OFFENDERS TYPICALLY ARE CONFRONTED WITH THESE CHALLENGES: Housing, employment, care and support of minor children, problems with spouse or girl/boy friend, misunderstanding per rules of release, keeping court ordered appointments, transportation, social concerns, readjusting to society at large, addiction issues, anger management, familiarization with new technology, disappointments, discouragement, insomnia, health issues, lack of self esteem, establishment of goals, management of resources, constructive use of time.

THE BROKEN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IN AMERICA

The troubled reality is, we've reached a point of saturation, given our high incarceration rate. If it is not your loved one, chances are it is a firend. This proximity in many ways continues to change people's way of thinking.

The messages of criminal justice reform align with the same values at the center of Christianity and other religious beliefs as well.
Forgiveness, grace, redemption, second chances, karma and a less punative mind set need to prevail.

According to the Oklahoma Policy Institute; the state's rate of incarceration is more than 10 times that of the entire country of Canada. This translates to 1 in every 100 adults in Oklahom being locked up at any given time.

If we are to reduce incarceration, the most productive way would be to put an end to the practice of sending non-violent drug offenders to prison.

Actual treatment approaches for drug addiction could be better managed by government health agencies instead of the criminal justice system. Alternatives to incarceration including home confinement for all those who are eligible should be expanded.

Technical parole and probation violations account for far too many arrests and reincarceration causing prison populations to swell. Some of these vioulations are because of failure to secure a job with taxable wages, not paying supervision fees, and skipping drug treatment meetings. State ID cards or drivers licenses, through crucial, such documents can be difficult to obtain for those returning to society. In some cases the lack of viable transportaion can contribute to parole and probation violations. Often ex offenders are trapped into longer terms of probation and parole after they have served their time.

This is by far one of the largest maximum security prisons found in the United States of America. This prison is famously known as the Alcatraz of the South by many people. It can accommodate a total of five thousand inmates. With such a population of criminals, you can be sure that the crime rate is very high in there. The violence against inmates as well as their abuse is rampant to the extent that it is unmanageable. Worse, this prison has a history of sexual slavery since the 1960s.
