Happy Father’s Day!
Let me start by thanking my Dad. I would not be who I am without you.
For those of you with a father or other family member in jail here is the Texas Department of Criminal Justice guide for families.
As of 1998, 1.4 million children had one parent in jail. 94% of those were fathers. I am sure that number has only increased in the last decade.
I wonder how many families we destroy to enforce prohibition? Is it worth it? Our for profit prison industry is only happy to accomodate more dads.
To all the dads behind bars- Quit getting arrested, I like my job, but your family needs you.
