i just finished one i will send it in the morning..
A letter and a nice photo of Jerry, taken at a show in Chicago ... will soon be on it's way to Troy.
Like I said ... please practice random acts of kindness.... or " I'll steal your face right off a yo head " :o)
and hope he soon finds himself in an easier and kinder place.
Mark was into some pretty, petty stupid shit. His karma got way shitty down Virginia Beach way and the bubble finally popped in a 7/11 where he got nailed shoplifting a carton of smokes. He had a a plastic fork or some such stupid shit on him and waved it in the general direction of the clerk who was going to detain him. When The Man whistled up in his cop shop Mark was dead meat. He could have plead out with time served but for some ridiculous reason he decided he wanted a jury trial. The judge laughed at him after the guilty verdict and gave him 13 years like he was handing out a lollipop. Mark did 13 years in a _____ jail full of loonies. It was the main distribution point for drugs in three counties, from the inside! He got gang raped because he didn't join a gang and had no protection. He got Hep C and other medical problems that wern't treated worth crap. The only reason he made it was because he could pick against the spread in all 4 major sports and he became the book who made the cards and set the line and held the cash. Nobody screwed with him after that. So he did his 13 and got out but he ain't a whole man anymore. Mark is living on the street this winter in_____ and Crohn's disease is kicking his ass. If anybody could send some love and light his way it would be much appreciated, I offered my place to crash and even to pay for some shows for him but he just wants to do his 12 step line dance. I hope he makes it through the winter.... Thanks for whatever you can menatlly do for a poor, down-and-out brother.
there but for the grace of the deity of your choice go a lot of us.
included some of this transcript here, so he knows people are thinking of him & discussing the issue (included the url in case he gets access to a pc) - also included a personal note & a pictue of Jerry. Can't imaging what his life must be like - we all should count our blessings.
Stuman, you should not worry, as the information that has been posted about Troy (and might be posted about other inmates in the future) is public information that can be found many different ways. Inmate information is not considered private, and so can be found on the internet or with a simple phone call to any facility.
Having somebody's name is not enough to steal an identity. Having somebody's prison address will definitely not do it, as credit card companies aren't likely to extend credit to someone in prison.
So, please, don't worry, if your family in prison wants letters written to them, posting their address here will not bring harm to their credit in the future.
Come on brother!! I am sorry if I took it the wrong way..I just think the idea of having you identity stole from giving a prison addy and his cell # crazy..It really made his month to here from ppl that share the same love for the boy's that he does.Just think you might be a lil over paranoid in this case and what this thread ias about, but please don't ever hold back what you have to say.The one thing I love about this place and the ones I love is the fact they speak there minds.So please don't shy away fr9om this thread tell me all that you know and I'll show you........
I was just expressing concern bro . I feel for your brother man , I know jail sucks , been there ,, i personally know people that the identity thing happened to .. like i said , just expressing my concern , thats all . I`ll leave this forum alone now .sorry if folks take what i posted the wrong way , i should be used to it .. and know better not to post what`s on my mind ... it`s always taken out of context ..
"speak your mind not someone elses" don`t seem to apply around these parts .
or sometrhing like that I really don't think that you can have your identity stolen buy having his cell #. witrh that said I will be glad to tell you that I just recieved a letter from Troy and he was super stoked to get letters from the ones who did send them so..... SO COME OFF IT STUMAN AND STOP BEING SO PARANOID BROTHER....
