Pop punk bands saying “friends”
“I just did eight and a half years in federal prison.”
“What was the worst thing about it?”
“The racial tension.”
“What else was really bad?”
“The guards. They hate prisoners. If you hate children, would you work at a kindergarten? If you hate animals, would you work at a zoo? Why work in prison if you hate prisoners?”
“What do they do?”
“They mess with your mind, try to break you down: cold room, one blanket.”
“You think they do it on purpose?”
“Why else would they do it? They know you’ll be cold. They know it will mess with your head. That’s just one small example—there’re many other things. If you don’t find a way to keep yourself sane, you’re going to re-enter society as a nutjob, a weirdo, messed up—all of the above. It’s called a correctional institution, but their goal is to mess you up: the guards, the system, they want you back.”
“What do you do to stay normal?”
“You think about your family—but some guys don’t have families.”
