This book is based on first-hand personal experiences; nevertheless it is not about guilt or innocence. It is a handbook; guidance for those Americans, who may one day have to go to prison. This is a directory to the idiosyncrasies of the American 'Justice Industry' and to inmates, guards, lawyers, judges, prosecutors and incarceration facilities within it. By and large the workings of this self-perpetuating 'industry' are little known to the general public. Here is a detailed guide for all those unfortunate Americans who one day may fall into the hands of this relentless 'industry'. It is a known fact that the United States has the highest number of incarcerated people in the world, hence mathematically speaking any American, including you the reader could easily be part of this sad statistics. By reading about events, persons and places described in this book, you the reader will be prepared (somewhat) to face this special section of society that (so far) had been locked away from you and the American public. ***** "There are two kinds of people my friends: The one who gets caught and the one yet to be caught..... every son of a bitch out there is guilty of something, including the judge and the jury who convicted me." A quote from Orlando - a federal inmate serving a life sentence.
