In one of the Maple wood condominium apartments lives Edmond E.
Ashie, a 28 year old young man, who has been in prison for nine years for
shooting. He has a very large living room decorated with brown colored leather
furniture with fifty inches screen television, matched with blue carpet and a very
large dinning set.
Thirty minutes on a dark December night in 1996 left Edmond .E. Ashie
irrevocably changed. It was the first time Edmond, known as a smart, straight-edge and
funny guy, had ever held a gun. The pistol fit snugly into the hands of the 16-year-old,
who tapped gently on the window of a dark green Pontiac Grand Prix. The noise startled
the middle-aged man sleeping in the car.
In just 30 minutes, Edmond committed his first crimes, an armed robbery and
Car high jacking .They were felonies that landed the teenager in Boston’s adult prisons
for nearly nine years. “I’ve seen documentaries on prison, and I can name movies and
books about prison, I don’t think any of them actually capture the sound of a cell door
losing and realizing you can’t go home,” Said Edmond .What Edmond did behind bars
and when the cell door finally opened nine years later is a remarkable story. Tattooed
with a violent felony record, he nonetheless attended the Boston college and did so well
that he was chosen as the commencement speaker in May 2011.
Prison overcrowding is a major problem in our criminal justice system and it continues to be a hotly debated topic as to how we should address the problem. One of the main reasons our prison systems have a problem with overcrowding is drugs. More specifically, the “war on drugs” started by President Reagan in 1982 brought a dramatic increase to the number of people put behind bars for ...
How did he achieve near-perfect grades and win a scholarship for a full ride to
graduate school?.Some might say the odds were stacked against Edmond. He was the
son of a convicted felon, raised by a single mother. Drug deals and robberies were
commonplace in his Suitland, Boston neighborhood. “I didn’t really have any outlets, “he
explained. He appears very different today, dressed in a sharp black suit than as he
was a streetwise teenager. He became one of hundreds of thousands of teens who
were in the U.S. juvenile justice system. Of the offenders, federal studies show a large
percentage of the offenders are black. Earlier on, his defense attorney made it known
that the seriousness of his crime would probably place him in the adult prison system,
even though no one was hurt in the robbery. But Edmond wasn’t the only juvenile
locked up with adults.
On the bus to Southampton Correctional Center, an adult corrections facility, he
rode with a dozen other juveniles sharing similar fears of entering prison. one of them
expressed his sentiment about how bad Prisons smell .Edmond added,. “You known
the smell can be likened jenkem”. Imagine that, only it’s being rubbed on the armpit of a
sweaty person and then his armpit pubes are being set on fire .
Edmond complained .He emphasized that no one can remain in the prison while
avoiding this bad odor. “You know how lean prison looks in all the pictures?”. He asked.
It is, because they spend all fucking day cleaning it And then convicts just basically shit
themselves for fun. Edmond said he switched buses on the way back and sat next to
this guy wearing cologne. Edmond pointed out that he was ashamed to be white.
because he said, In the world, white people are capable of all kinds of great things, and
all kinds of bad things.
But inside he confessed prisoners are just universally cunts. In the prison yard was also
another group , Aryan Brotherhood weren’t a big presence in his block, but they were
bad enough to make others kind of wish one’s mother had been raped by a nigger. And
The article presents three main problems in the assessment of students: first, the assessment methods that teachers use are not effective in promoting good learning; second, grading practices tend to emphasize competition rather than personal improvement; and third, assessment feedback often has a negative impact, particularly on low-achieving students, who are led to believe that they lack “ ...
that’s before meeting the boss in charge. Correctional Services officers come in all
types, but white screws were the worst.
Black screws, one could tell were just poor niggers trying to get by in a shitty job. Only
white guys ever seemed to enjoy their shit. Rape, despite the rumors, is not a big deal
inside. It doesn’t happen that often. But every time it happened on his block it was a
white guy. And every time anyone got murdered, it was a white guy.
Edmond experienced thirty-three murder cases while he was inside, twelve of them in
his block. All because white cunts couldn’t keep their dicks in their pants, or else ‘cut
someone’s eyes’ which was slang for stealing someone’s shit. however black prisoners
are not engaging in these acts their only problem was getting fat because lack of
. One of the things that occupies a lot convict’s days is finding some way to try and do
some physical activity. After about six months he could feel his muscle mass going,
so sometimes he and his cellmate try to deadlift each other for a few hours. While in
prison, he experienced a lot of Gay activities. Solitary he was terrified of
confinement when he first went inside, which contributed to him behaving.
Until he realized that solitary isn’t something he can hold off by just not being adick.
Usually, because there is a remand inmate that needs to be cycled into gen pop before
trial and they need to free up cell – so they sometimes go into solitary because there
aren’t any other beds. Edmond experience two months of this situation. No books, no blankets, no
light, 23 hour lockdown. Most they can do is one week of a stretch – worst part was
knowing those in were going to go back after a week if the block was over crowded.
According to him, they spent whole time in gen pop just anxious as fuck because he
could get dragged off the chain at any moment and sent back. After a while, drugs
become a viable option inside. There is a lot on offer. “If you can get it out in the world,

Where before we had only speculation, now we have a bit of evidence upon which we can base our assumptions. It seems to be a critically important ...
you can get it inside” said Edmond. For a better price strangely enough, considering the
difficulty of getting it in.
That is if what the partner says it is. He decided to get onto horse after a few
months, mostly as something to do. He then tried heroin outside, but didn’t liked it since
getting on the nod seemed like a waste of time. But inside, it’s great , a shot in solitary
can make a week pass in no time at all. Flour, baking , jell-o crystals – all item that
should not be in a vain. After a while, he just ended up doing things he never would
have dreamt of. he was paranoid about getting the AIDS, so he kept one needle all the
time . Went rusty and ended up spending a month in sick bay with tetanus. When he
couldn’t score for junk, and scored for codeine tablets. Grew his thumb nail long and
wrecked it on the so it was sharp enough to cut open his thigh, and would stick the
Profiling Edmond is remarkable because upon all the difficulties that Edmond went through and his experience in prison he was able to achieve his aim.
