C'mon prayer warriors my guy needs you more then ever right now OK?
I have been working with a Brother his mom and step dad for a few months now. They came to me because it is believed their son is innocent. He spent 16 years of his life behind bars. The family gave me a complete file of the case and although I am not a professional, I believe that "B" was made to be a fall guy and coerced into a plea. Below is the email I sent to my Innocence Project liaison

Its getting real folks and summer is not even here yet! Sad news is there are opportunities we can create to help mend the brokenness in those pulling the trigger. Now it is time we get off our asses (there I said it), get out of our comfy lil boxes and get busy (apologies if I offended one of you)....... Now the good news, Prosecutor Carter has agreed to meet with me to discuss a plan I have to get the guns off the streets. I first took this plan over to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart who also pledged his support. I got a call / message from Mr Carters office but missed it. I expect to set meeting time tomorrow, if you think you want to help email me email@example.com. No BS please either you do or you don't, if you don't - don't waste my time with empty promises......... stay tuned GARY — A 28-year-old man was killed Tuesday morning in the city's second homicide within 24 hours.

Couple weeks ago I gave KC a drivers manual and told him "get your face in it in two weeks we're going in for your permit". So what can happen in the life of a 27 year old man that decides that some changes need to be made........ well lemme tell ya....... I'm happy to announce my mentee KC passed his permit today, only got 2 wrong. I was so proud of him man and I let him know it. As well as he did it made me think what would it look like to have a peer lead permit readiness course inside the work release? I shared the idea with KC and he can not wait to get started. We are running the idea past the admin there at the center..... stay tuned!

Regarding "Steve" the man who killed the father and posted it on FB. First of all my condolences to the family, horrific at best, a good man was killed, and this touched my heart. Fewer Blacks then other populations are discussing their challenges with Mental Illness, this is a problem. To you who are of color, specifically the Afro American community, know that Mental Illness does not discriminate, know that it is not your fault if you have a Mental Illness, know that there is help. Now people....... if you know of someone who's activity, lifestyle or living situation seem to be a threat to either themselves or others, get with them, ask the hard questions, seek out professionals who can assist with an intervention. Let not the stigma associated with Mental Illness stop us from finding help for those who may be un-diagnosed. It takes more of a man to admit their needs than to fall victim to them. Let this situation be a wake up call for all of us, let not the death of this 74 year old father of 10 be in vain, thank you. Earlier this week, Dustin Dwyer brought us Brianna Darin's first-hand account of conquering depression. The high schooler shared the steps she took after

What can happen if you invest in God and a little effort in man? Ask the men, they did it!!. Some may recall that I assisted a couple Re-entry men to be involved in the Super JTI training. As a result of a little effort on their part they have made it through the first two days and to the final cut tomorrow Anyway, today I got a call from some EPA folks inviting me to assist in evaluating the candidates at tomorrows final selection segment for the training. I was also able to help them understand that just because one might have a Felony that they are not bad people As a result of a little bit of effort those with a Felony will be included to participate and Lord willing will land a good paying job, reducing their chances of landing back in jail Lets pray for all those involved and a special thanks to the folks over at the EPA for understanding that these men are not throw aways and they deserve a chance to prove themselves Special thanks to the EPA fpr their commitment to the Superfund clean up in EC, I am honored to be a part of the effort Environmental Justice (EJ) is the fair treatment for people of all races, cultures and incomes regarding the development of environmental laws, regulations and policies.

This just in, 1 man with God can make a difference! Thank you Lord!
One of my guys was struggling with keeping current on his payments to child support, so by the law and rightfully so they revoked his license because he was not doing what I arranged in the first place to avoid this. Family do not be afraid, stand in the gap for those who feel they have no voice. If you or someone you know has an issue with keeping their license due to child support issues, get a hold of me I will help you maneuver until you can move on your own. I will help you, never a charge, just send an email with "Drivers License" in the subject line to email@example.com. Case by Case, no guarantees, but it def will not happen if you do not try
1. The mother of your child will at least get something
2. You feel proud of yourself for taking care of business
3.You keep your license and stop looking over your shoulder
They DO NOT want your license, they want you to take responsibility for your children.
IS THERE ANY PART OF THIS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND?

- UNLESS we are involved in unified, positive dialogue, followed by positive action and more importantly positive reinforcement in the mindset of those with substance abuse / mental illness challenges and in the process of Re-Entry we will be impacted by the negative consequences as a result of our complacency. The former we can choose, with complacency, we risk loosing that choice
- Our end in mind is to reduce the high cost of Recidivism incurred by incarceration, but more importantly on families and communities
Change my heart O Lord make it ever new change my heart O Lord may it be like you, you are the Potter I Am The Clay mold me show me the way
