Rejection in the correctional facilities

Updated on October 2, 2011

Lateral Rejection – human to human

As we have seen, rejection is the sense of being unwanted; it is often that which is conveyed to a child by maternal and paternal images, divorcee, and usually an irreconcilable affair in which one was sent a “dear John” letter. This often results in the party suffering from shame and betrayal and from these, the spirit of rejection is strengthened.

The penal institutions have long been a reservoir of rejection. In fact, inmates are subjected to various institutionalized manipulation and subjugation techniques that destroy their innate confidence and motivation to keep an atmosphere of self-respect. Therefore, on their release, it has been echoed, that in their intolerant behavior, you are getting just what you paid for.

Abusing inmates does nothing more than make them a threat to society. This further alienates them from society when they are released from the so-called, "correctional institutes" whose main focus is to punish.

When inmates are released from correctional facilities, it is made clear by the certain communities, by words and deeds, that if time was ever served, then you are not welcome into their townships.

Released men and women from correctional facilities are ostracized by the general public and few religious organization will openly extend their hand because of fear of the unknown.

So the condemned man or woman, knowing the antagonism of the community and that which they will have to undergo while institutionalized, has to fight a spirit of rejection that tries to grip the inmate as an animal that kills its prey by crushing it until it’s impossible to breathe.

Recalling the Willi Lynch letter, this crushing of the inmate appears to be an unofficial campaign that is devised to make the inmate feel unwanted and worthless. It also appears to be a consolidation effort that comes from both the formal prison system and some of the inmate’s own peers. This is an attempt to apply pressure so that the inmate may be influenced and manipulated to change into a prison culture. This coerced change will tend to negative results.

The condemn man knows that once in prison, he is just another number for financial gain in someone’s pocket.

After all, the penal system is big business for corporate investors and makes a healthy living for everyone involved; lawyers, doctors, wardens, prison guards, linen manufacturers and libelous police officers. The prison system affect every area of socity and gains least public and political attention.

The inmates is given bare necessity. They walk around with sagging pants exposing their undergarments because those under contract for their upkeep are too cheap to design trousers to fit. They are conditioned to wear over sized shoes and shirts that are either too tight or too loose which give rise to unwarranted perverted behavior against some inmates by their peers.

When an inmate is released he carries the prison culture into the community which catches on quickly in ghetto communities and this become fashionable to the young at heart who seeks to rebel against parental figures and against the system.

The penal system is in need of drastic repair but for now it is not a point of sale on neither the Republican, Democratic or the Tea Party agenda; prisoners don’t have a vote. Inmates of our great country aren’t allowed to have a voice. They aren’t allowed to feel pain, to say; I am hurting, even if all he is institutionalized for is unpaid parking tickets.

Why, because most often they are the wrong pigmentation and that of course is enough to put them away with hardened criminals.

This sort of behavior destroys the inmates ego, self-respect and crushes his spirit, especially for the innocently accused.

The writer of Proverbs 18:14, tells how a crushed spirit will affect a person:

A man’s spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit, who can bear?

The KJV puts it like this;

“The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?

This implies that a wounded spirit cannot physically sustain and bare the weight that’s bourn around in the rejected soul of a man.

The effect of this weight will appear at times as symptoms of sickness in the flesh and other emotional disablement.
