Learn about my journey to recovery, and leave with an understanding that everyone is fighting a battle, even if you can't see it.
From grad student to prisoner. The effects of profiling from a corrupt justice system.
It has taken me years to get to a place where I can open up about my experience in Waco. I recall my time in jail, how I used humor to keep my sanity, and how almost three years later, Waco continues to haunt me to no avail. In a town where the judge and DA are former law partners, a grand jury headed by a Waco detective indicted over 100 people without individual review, and a DA who has and remains under investigation by the FBI for corruption, it is no surprise they were able to arrest 177 people based on their clothing, and slap them with identical charges. Not to mention that since those affected are bikers, the ACLU is nowhere to be found.
