How many times are we faced with conflict, and in a split second, we are faced with adversity and forced to make a split decision — A decision that holds enough weight that a persons life could be on the life. Somewhere. Somehow. Someplace.
What if in the moment we answered that decision…We accidentally provided the wrong answer? What if that was it though? They say life has no reset. No magical “Do Over” Button. So whats done is done…And a man is sent to prison for 3 Consecutive Life Sentences.
Or; less severe. A “First Timer” gets picked up on a simple “Possession” and Burglary Charge” serves his time (eg., 11/29) but gets released to absolutely nothing. Or worse, to the same people, places and things that they used to know.
That doesn’t really take the problem into a solution focused result. You’re left with the same offenders repeating the same offenses ultimately resulting in a turn-key business modal.
What if we broke the barrier? Inflicted heavier sentences forcing convicts to work
upon their release date. Have a guiding resource to re-establish themselves and relearn how life on the outs is and prepare them with tools to make it.
Simultaneously have a farm / ranch that doubles as a re-entry workplace farm establishment and a healing trauma center for soldiers introduced to life altering trauma ie: after war, being shot, family emergency etc.
