Date of experience: July A Human Rights Watch report documented the abandonment of hundreds of prisoners at that facility in New Orleans, of whom were still unaccounted for as of September 29 -- a month after Katrina flooded the jail and three days before the first rodeo event. One rodeo-friendly prison warden was amazed by Angola's determination.

But Christine Corcos, professor at the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University, suggests that the Angola Prison Rodeo is more than just a wild spectacle, especially in the wake of the two hurricanes. The rodeo, she says, may be a "rite of passage" for grieving Louisianans looking to restore a sense of normalcy to their lives, just as the New Orleans Saints provided a symbol to rally around.
The rodeo, she says, can provide this for both inmates and onlookers; fans have flocked to the prison from all over the Mississippi Delta region every October since The rodeo also allows inmates to invite the general population inside Angola's walls, to proudly showcase their talents in a public, albeit artificial, setting. For prisoners trapped in a less-than-desirable place, says Corcos, the rodeo offers inmates a stage on which they can reconcile their own post-hurricane grief.

Was in there for 37 seconds. Dumped the drawer, gun, and clothes around town. Went back to my apartment and I forgot to put the plates back on the car. I looked outside and a cop was looking at car. I panicked ran. Stole another car and got caught 8 hours later in a different state. GG 40 months in federal prison. Yeah you would have never know which bills those were though, wouldn't that have gotten you caught as well?
You use those at like McDs and shit like that so they get recycled and would take years to trace. And yes I lost much more than that. Things hat no amount of money can buy. Obv that guy isnt smart enough to under stand the game an should stay put. You were lucky it was only 40 months, time off for 'good behavior'? What caused you to rob a bank, did you always have criminal asperations, needed the money, or just a thrill? Who were you online before this happened?
