.for 39 years. He comes to one of our safe houses today straight from the prison release in Huntsville.
When he went to prison,
- Ronald Reagan was President of the United States
- Thomas Wade Landry was still coach of the Dallas Cowboys
- Personal computers and cell phones were not popularly available
- There was still a Berlin wall
if the average life expectancy of an American male is just less than 75 years, he has spent more than half his expected life span behind bars. If you live in Texas your tax dollars have gone to pay the enormous amount required to keep him in a cell.
We get him late today or tomorrow. He will be placed in the safe house closest to our on-site administrators and for a time will not have a room mate. We do this so he can start to deal with the anxiety that comes from a total life change. We will feed, clothe and house him, put appropriate clothes on him. We will spend a few hours helping him obtain the necessary personal documents to get a job. Then we will start to work on job placement with a felony accepting employer. None of this will cost the tax payer a cent because we are privately funded by donations.
