People of the Eye: Second Chance

hate-horizontal.jpg

However, I do believe a person that can be rehabilitated and do believe in a form of compassion, Most every person deserves a second chance at some point. We just have to do the best we can to find the ones most deserving. Just because you are a Deaf returning citizen does not automatically mean you will be protected.

If the Deaf community had done their job with the fact to release hatred would definitely get news coverage, I would assume that they have sorted out fact from fiction in regards if a Deaf returning citizen is fit to rejoin society.  What is Deaf Returning citizen? It is a positive term to give them a life to heal and empower the society, and to understand what kind of burdens to carry. Deaf Returning citizens have to carry a heavy burden that requires empowerment to make it through what they have faced upon their release. Deaf returning citizens may have a true change of heart and heal.

There are couple of Deaf returning citizens who have potential. They deserve a fresh start and do some good things with their lives when they step in. For all the negative people, naysayers, just remember, the ones who live in Deaf community with hatred, there are also people like myself who believes in second chances.

I am a firm believer that upon release, ex-offenders should be afforded a second chance to become productive citizens by providing rehabilitation and education that will help them join the workforce. Charles B. Rangel

The power of indoctrination, propaganda, and constant mantra of any information without giving you all sides of an issue is dangerous, wrong, and causes extreme harm. It can come from social media starting at an early age before a person has time to learn a wide and broad general knowledge of life. Also, it is the same social media that indoctrinates viewers with one-sided salacious stories without showing both sides of the issue many times.

In the most recent example of the ugliness that passes for national discourse, a Deaf guy who claimed to be an expert as behavior specialist that is not even matured into adult years yet saying that ex-cons should not use social media at all. He is like Rush Limbaugh or Donald Trump who calls them a bad image and should not exist in the society in support of bullying for ignorance and fear. The guy thought it would be an impractical policy for Deaf returning citizens, shouts out at them across America as Deaf returning citizens are allowed to have second chances. “SHUT YOUR MOUTH!” has been threatening the very nature of democracy.

The behaviorist who practices bigotry was larger than Trump’s and when a Deaf returning citizen stands up for something they deal with false hopes and hatred, it is OK to bully them into silence and how much grace and civility they had suffered. It shows that even the highest land of America is not immune to this thread. Hatred, bullying, slander, libel starts with its history of great haters, lack of awareness and efforts to put aside the labels of Deaf returning citizens to suffer, is still vulnerable to this public discourse.

This is unacceptable. I believe the greatest loss for Deaf returning citizens will be if we let this sort of outburst stand. We must not. This guy has no basis for intelligence life. Hate do not win.
