What positive influence can you bring to The Streets Don't Love You Back Movement?
I have just watched a 'Women Behind Bars' episode about Shelby Carano and I am amazed at the injustice. Many years ago I too was accused of a minor crime which the judge threw out immediately due to the fabricated evidence by the police. Although I was cleared, it was the upset and embarrassment my parents suffered that hurt me the most as it took one year to bring before a judge. My sympathy, best wishes and encouragement goes out to Shelby Carano who didn't have the best start in life. She did her best to survive in the only way she knew, she was unlucky and made a few bad choices but, she didn't actively murder anybody in my eyes. Furthermore, she now spends her time educating others in prison on the evils of heroin and life choices. I hope Shelby and any other people who have made some bad choices take some comfort in the fact that people they don't know do care and appreciate that a few bad people want to encourage them down the wrong path for monetary reward.
My advice is, once free from prison, is to seek new friends with no negative habits incl. drugs, violence, gambling, excessive drinking etc. You have to distance yourself from the people in your past life with no moral compass.
I was lucky, I had excellent parents and the nearest I've got to a crime is a few speeding fines,..that's it!!!
I have never written anything like this before but, I found Shelby's case very upsetting. If she's out know I hope she has had some help to build a new life.
I hope this has helped.
How can I help more?
