Second Chances Do Work – Support The Right People – Reality Check Program

Larry Lawton certificate of termination from US Federal ProbationSecond chances and what do they mean, by Larry Lawton

Being a free man for over seven years now, (my release date was August 24, 2007) I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on life, family, friends, my career and what it all means. What it always comes back to is second chances and what we do with them.

Most people need a second chance and deserve a second chance. Let me explain, it doesn’t matter if you got caught for something or not. Maybe you have driven drunk, stole something, threatened someone, assaulted someone, etc. Everybody has done something they know was not right and probably could have gotten them in some legal trouble. One person once said to me, “I’ve never done anything that could have gotten me thrown in jail” I looked at him and asked if he ever Read More »

Law Enforcement Power, Voting, Favorite Quotes – By: Larry Lawton

american_flag-620x472This is why we all should love the United States so much. Our forefathers got it right. One of the greatest Presidents of the United States, a founder and signer of the Declaration of Independence saw the corruption of power so clearly.

Thomas Jefferson  – 3rd President  of  the United  States – 1743-1826: “Experience hath shown that even under the best forms of [government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operation, perverted it into tyranny.”

We have great law enforcement agencies and officers. It is the small minority that hurt the majority. Power is scary in the wrongs hands and that is what the citizens of the United States are seeing now. It is not a race issue, it is a power issue.

We need our law enforcement more than ever now, but what we need most is, Read More »
