Photos are prohibited in many prisons, so the few that find their way out are precious. The Bay View thanks longtime subscriber and supporter Black Warrior Allah (Brad Ford),  12991-084, FCI Gilmer, P.O. Box 6000, Glenville WV 26351, for sending this one.

Life behind enemy lines can be lonely and a letter from a friend – a pen pal – can liberate mind and spirit. These prisoners are reaching out to you. They trust that Bay View readers truly care. Reach back and write a letter today!

“All Power to the People!” One can only imagine love lost due to suppressive mileage and ignorant economical prison plantation slave owners, who look for systematic financial gain rather than truly cleansing the human spirit. I ask myself often, what is life?… A rose pedal, a love letter or simply a book waiting to be turned from its first page. Any woman who believes the chapter begins with her, then publish your feelings, tears and soul on a blank page and I will begin the ‘freedom of caress’, massaging your heart and rummaging slowly through your glistened body filtering out all cancerous elements, ill feelings hatred, discriminating and suppressive circumstances, leaving your body in a state of nudism, as I wrap a layer of worth, independence, strength and wealth (externally and internally) stroking all avenues of disrespect with belated justice.” Single Blackman, 27 years old with a November 2012 release date.

    I have been sentenced to a disproportional amout of time (75 years) for arm robbery. Although I am optimistic to eventually overcome this, it is what it is and every day is a struggle. Nevertheless: strong I remain. My faith in my self has never wavered. I am 36 years young, born June 9th 1972. Although I am open to relating and exchanging with someone about life, I’d be happy if someone could assist me on the creative side. I do portraits.

    Rob just turned 21 on 3/8. He just doesn’t belong where he’s at. His family lives in Georgia, hundreds of miles away. His paternal grandparents see him every few months. His parents are divorced and make all kinds of promises to him such as that they’ll visit but they don’t. He’s been in jail since he was 19. He looks like a sweet kid but he sure has lived a hard life. He suffered with leukemia from a small child until it went into remission when he was 14.
