Welcome to

The ultimate blog site and guide to incarceration and the Criminal Justice system in America.

Mission statement:

We are dedicated in educating individuals worldwide along with families and friends of the incarcerated with up close, raw, in depth, informative blogs and excerpts from inside of an educational prison mentoring program titled Men 101. Also offering blogs about the truth and reality of what jail and prison life is really like and the overall facets of the Criminal Justice system in America and much much more.

Our Vision:

  • Educating individuals globally about incarceration in America.
  • Strengthen the bond between families and their incarcerated loved ones
  • Creation of a 501(c) 3 Non-profit to work with leading foundations, prison organizations and mentorships, to create positive opportunities for ex-offenders, at risk youth and incarcerated families.
  • To reduce the school to prison pipeline of young adults in America ages 16-25 coming to jail and prison rather than going to college or trade school.
  • To help ex offenders strive to become productive members of society and in their communities.

Words from Mentor Love:

Hello. My name is Leonard Love and Thank you for viewing. Before I introduce myself I would like to state some true and unbelievable facts and information that you may not know. Did you know that there are 2.3 million or 1 out of 152 Adult Americans in state and federal prisons and county jails throughout the United States? Did you know out of 2.3 million incarcerated individuals, close to half or 1 million suffer from some sort of mental illness or substance abuse addiction? Did you know that there are over 70 million people or 20% of the United States population of 350,000,000 million people, who have a criminal record? Also 6.8 million Americans are under some sort of correctional supervision. What’s even more shocking is the United States only makes up 5% of the of the worlds 7 billion population, but makes up a staggering 25% of the worlds total prison population. The United States, incarcerates more people per capita, than any other nation and spends a whopping $300 billion a year to fund the entire United States Criminal Justice system. Don’t you think there needs to be a solution to this growing epidemic?

I’m a blogger, prison advocate, entrepreneur, life coach and mentor to fatherless youth, at-risk teens and incarcerated males. I am also the creator of a prison mentorship titled Men 101. A program I created and have taught over 15 yrs. The Prison mentorship provides viable life and transitional skills to facilitate incarcerated men’s re-entry back into society and combat recidivism. Throughout my many years in the federal prison system, I have lived it, seen it and experienced it all. Through perseverance, unimaginable circumstances and divine intervention, I have turned prison into a positive and matured into a well balanced man and mentor. As I stated previously, half the prison population suffers from some sort of mental illness or substance abuse problem. In order to be an efficient prison mentor, its important to know and understand how the mind works. I made it a personal goal to learn throughout my years of incarceration a little psycholgy, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis which has helped me tremendously in mentoring and in my personal life.

We are educating individuals with truths the criminal justice system doesn’t want you to really know. We want viewers to understand the streets, jail, prison and graveyards don’t discriminate against race, color or religion. Together we want to combat the overall mass incarceration epidemic by exposing facts and realities the media, TV, movies and entertainment so inaccurately betrays. By educating others we can help many or just one person not come to jail or prison.

We strongly encourage all viewers to SHARE this much needed blog site and initiative with others on social media, with family, friends and colleagues.
