“A mistake is banging a fat chick and knocking her up”

The comment is from a Floyd County, Georgia prison guard in the “Beyond Scared Straight” series. A youth offender had said he had made a mistake. This one might have been one of the roughest in the entire series. The guards, and one in particular were enjoying the scenarios almost a bit too much. The inmates, while none were in the class of “six-nine” in South Carolina, were certainly tough enough. They had the prisoners take their shoes, blankets and other personal items.

I’m getting the impression the “Beyond Scared Straight” series is almost preparing these kids for the prison stays. They seem to go in with too much bravado. The television all-access allows the kids to know nothing serious is going to happen to them while they are there. The threat of staying overnight is unrealistic. Virtually anyone, especially those who believe they have nothing to look forward to in life can withstand a day of getting yelled at.

One of the kids, his mother didn’t even show up to talk to him. He had broken her nose twice.

After the visit, some people change; some of them do not. One kid who was getting good grades is playing football and was looking at a big time school. Another kid ended up going to jail. You can’t save everyone.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
