Give me Life or Give me Death

The other day I was talking to a good friend of mine and she was working on a paper and told me she was having a problem deciding what side of her professors topic to defend. I asked her what the topic was and she told me:

"We have to pick whether we'd rather give someone life in prison or the death Penalty"

Without even having to give it thought I said "I feel both are wrong" she asked, "Really" when I replied "Yes" the conversation took form and started to get deep.

Let's think about this the way I see it for a second.
Life in Prison:
Regardless of what one has done,(especially at a certain age) to spend your entire life behind bars like a caged animal is unfair. I feel like this because I am a firm believer in second chances. And I feel that after a certain amount of time any man reforms his bad ways, or at very least feels some regret about what he's done. Stop for a second and think to yourself, is there anything you did 5 years ago that you regret, or is there anything you were or should have been punished for and you weren't? Now let's say you were punished, how would you feel if you were still serving time for that 5 years later?

It is safe to say that we all think differently now than we did five years ago, right? Well this is a reason why I don't agree with life in prison, there's men who have been behind the bars of a prison cell for longer than I have been alive, haven't touched money in twenty-plus years, haven't been hugged by a family member in thirty-plus years etc. So say a man was convicted for murder at 17, you think its fair for him to still be serving his sentence at 71?

Now as for
The Death Penalty:
This I won't spend too much time on. But no man alive is God, therefore not a man alive SHOULD have the power to decide whether a man should live or die. Although this is the case sadly some men are giving that power. Again let's think of this the way I do for a second. Some people feel that if you took a life than you deserve to forfeit your life in exchange for that life. Okay, I validate that, but let's think a little deeper, what is the life expectancy of a man in the U.S. today? Let's also take into consideration that he's black, is involved in harmful, unlawful behavior, does drugs and is in constant danger for his life anyway..... Let's say his life expectancy has been cut down to 30. Do you still think its fair for another criminal just like him to serve the rest of HIS natural born life in prison as payment? Hell no? If you feel he should spend the time that the other would have lived in jail then let's give him 15-20 years which is what the dead criminal would have had left on his life..... I hope I'm making sense here. All I'm saying is, the legal/justice system is bull shit anyway, so how about breaking away from the norm and punish people fairly.

So til next time please,
Stay Up and Stay Tuned....

My Nightmares

And for my One Hundredth and Fiftieth Post: I wanna bring ya a lil Sub Post.

Last night, like all nights I had many dream, two of them stuck out more than all the other, If the others stood out at all.

The First one:
I don't know if it was in Cancun, but I know it was Mexico, I was on the beach and the water was so clear and beautiful that you could see all the way to the bottom even in the deeper ends of the sea.... Life felt good, everything was right, I believe I had a Corona in one hand, I was in nothing but my swim trunks, I had on shades and I couldn't be happier. It was dope, till the sounds of my phone woke me up and I was back home in the Bronx, the concrete Jungle.... Oh Well the dream was beautiful while it lasted.

The Second one:
This one was a little more uneasy, I went back to sleep which I almost never do and the dream began.
I decided I wanted to go back to school (in the dream) and so I went in and was going to the enrollment office. I stood on line and saw everyone in front of me enroll with no problems, so finally its my turn and the young man behind the counter asks to see my I.D. so i hand him my expired learner's permit and he looks at me with an awkward look.
He says to me: "this I.D. is expired, and quite frankly, I've seen you before in the clubs, you get drunk you become an animal and then you harass and become abusive with all the women." So I look at him with the "Nigga who the F^%# are you, and why do you care?" and then say to him "I don't understand what this has to do with anything, just put the sticker on my card and let me go." He looks back at me and says: "All the bouncers in NYC might see you and not realize the threat, but i do, and your not gettin into this school" he gets a pair of scissors and cuts my I.D. in half! This is where I lose my mind! I say: "Hol the F&*% on!--" (and let it be known when I raise my voice and start cursin it just got serious) "how you just gonna cut my card like that nigga?!" and I jump over the counter and start chasing this bastard all over the place... Some girl tried to defend him and got in between us, so I started chasing both of em... before I realized I had become a raging bull chasing these two and then I woke up!

Now I know the meaning of this dream, or at least I made it up its meaning in my mind, but I'll let ya figure it out... Its strange to me the dreams that I have...
Lata ya'll--

Stay Up and Stay Tuned!

Boss of the Borough

My brother from another mother hit me up on FaceBook today and asked me for a favor.... he hit me up and asked me if I could post his homies new music video on his favorite blog (thats this one) if I liked it enough. Now as soon as I got to the link it looked like it was gonna be a dope video, and you know I support underground artist heavy. So once the 3 minutes plus were up I told my brother Deascent (He's been mentioned before on the blog--do your research) "I got you homie" and D, since I know your reading this now, I knew I was gonna post it 30 seconds in... lol> On some A&R tip I was drawn in quickly. So with no further delay 'Tha Bull Pen' presents to you:
