    Letter: Men in prison

    I was disappointed in Mr. Lail’s letter to the editor “Games Inmates Play.” It’s that type of propaganda and stereotyping that leads to draconian sentences and casualties like Trayvon Martin. Mr. Lail’s seventeen years of maintenance work in a state prison does not qualify him as an expert in the mental mechanics of any inmate. One cannot take a few isolated incidents and declare the entire inmate population incorrigible. I’ll concede there are some bad guys in prison, but please don’t misconstrue the games of a few with the ambitions of the many. I’ll close with the words of Mr. Booker T. Washington, “I early learned that it is a hard matter to convert an individual by abusing him and that this is more often accomplished by giving credit for all the praiseworthy actions performed than by calling attention alone to all the evil done.”
