Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site:
The prison thing is just silly. Try acting more like an adult.
I don’t think it is even a tiny bit silly, Anonymous. I think it is tragic. I don’t think it is silly.
It is the adult thing to speak up about criminal acts when one sees them. It is because too many of us failed to speak up about your acts as they moved into the criminal realm that you are in the mess that you are in today. We all should have been adults and helped you out by bringing the problematic behavior to a quick stop. Lots of us failed to do that, for various reasons. And here we are.
I am trying to get your prison sentence reduced to the extent that there are opportunities available to me to do that. I sure cannot do that if I pretend that I think there is something silly about you going to prison. There’s nothing at all silly about it. It is a problem that we all should be working together to solve.
