Following up on my observation yesterday.
Another problem with this mentality of convicted criminals “thinking about what they did” while doing a long prison stint is that most convicted criminals don’t think they did anything wrong. They won’t spend even the five seconds it would take most of them to “think about what they did” because they “didn’t do nuttin.”
Let’s say 20-year old Dontrell shoots and kills 17-year old N’D'Mario (*) on the corner of College and Carter in North St. Louis City, for one of the many reasons why a 20-year old named Dontrell would murder a 17-year old named N’D'Mario — N’D'Mario moved in on Dontrell’s steady girlfriend, Dontrell saw N’D'Mario engaging in amateur pharmacology in the area where Dontrell himself likes to do the same thing, N’D'Mario accidentally kicked up some dust on Dontrell’s new $220 Jordan shoes, N’D'Mario owed Dontrell a few hundred bucks from what looked to be a game of street Yahtzee a month or two ago, or whatever.
The Circuit Attorney tries for the death penalty against Dontrell, but circumstance forces them to bargain with Dontrell’s FOOLS (Fresh out of Law School) public defender, Dontrell pleads guilty and accepts life in prison without parole, in exchange for the CA dropping the death penalty. At sentencing, N’D'Mario’s mother, among other things, including making a fool out of herself and showing the world what kind of woman would name her newborn man child a name with two apostrophes almost two decades ago, shouts with glee that Dontrell will have the rest of his life to “think about what he did.” Meanwhile, on the other side of the court house at the same time, Dontrell’s mother is telling the media that her son “fell in with the wrong crowd.” Yep, it’s that wrong crowd. It’ll get ya’ every time. It goes around pulling down people who share something auspicious in common. Between N’D'Mario’s old lady and Dontrell’s old lady, you’ve got a serious case of dumb and dumber.
Assume two years from murder to sentencing, and Dontrell is now 22. If he lives out to the average life expectancy for American black men, 68, this means he will have 46 years to “think about what he did.”
Do you think he’s actually going to spend 46 years holed up in a cell in Jeff City thinking about what he did?
Hell no. Because he didn’t actually do it. Racist SLPD cops, racist ACAs, racist judge, they arrested the wrong guy, self-defense, his lawyer fucked him over, he was abused as a child, mama said he just fell in with the wrong crowd. That’s how he’s going to spend the first year or two of the next 46 “thinking about what he did.” And, on the side, raping white men doing time in the same hoosegow for producing and selling raw milk. By three or four years into his bid, he’s going to hook up with the Farrakhanites, who will by year five or six have him convinced that the white racist system, the one where the Zionist KKK have their tentacles into everything, deliberately wanted to deprive this former honor student of a successful rap career, (and he WAS an aspiring rapper, aren’t they all?) so they planted all the evidence and framed him. Just because they’re racist and shite.
To this day, I bet Bernie Madoff still won’t admit that he did anything wrong. He can’t blame anti-Semitism, because two of the four AUSAs on the team that prosecuted him had obviously Jewish last names, and since they were in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Southern New York, it’s safe to assume that they were actually Jewish. Probably his bromide is that he’s blaming the victims for being suckers and schmucks.
Just in case you’re lost, anger is the one of the seven deadly sins to explain Dontrell murdering N’D'Mario.
* – There is actually a young man in St. Louis named N’D'Mario, or he was in St. Louis as of about two years ago. How do I know that? I could tell you…
