Hello my name is Leonard Love

Hello my name is Leonard Love and thank you for viewing my educational blog site. I would like to present you with some unbelievable facts about the United States Criminal Justice system.

-Did you know that close to 500,000 of the incarcerated suffer from some sort of mental illness or substance abuse problems?

-(1) Did you know around 50,000 of those inmates are youth?

-(2) Did you know that over 70 million people in the United States have a criminal record? That is 20% of the total United States population of over 350 million people?

(3) Did you know the United States has just 5% of the worlds population but makes up an unbelievable 25% of the worlds prison population?
 
I was sentenced to 25 yeas in Federal prison for armed bank robbery back in 2003. Since my incarceration I have turned my life around to provide positivity, encourage growth, and spread knowledge, and assist others. I have become a mentor and big brother to at-risk youth, troubled teens and first time inmates. I’m also a human rights advocate an activist for prison reform including justice equality. An entrepreneur that creates recession proof businesses and creator of a prison mentorship titled “Men 101”. A mentorship that provides viable life and transitional skills to facilitate incarcerated men’s re-entry back into society and to combat recidivism. As you see I have lived by the motto by the United Negro College fund.
“A mind is a terrible thing to waste”. Throughout my many years if incarceration. I have accumulate a multitude of challenging and revelatory life experiences that I often share for the edification of others. By perseverance and faith during unimaginable circumstances and divine intervention. I have managed to transition 19 years of negating prison conditions into a positive source of support and inspiration to the incarcerated community and society.
 
I have been able to dispel many false perceptions of prison life which are so falsely presented in the media and in the entertainment industry. I kindly ask that you help me expose this blog through social media, friends, family and anyone you know that needs to know the truth about incarceration in America. If you have any questions, concerns about incarceration, prison relationships, or need help with problems you are dealing with or just need someone to listen. You can email me at 337-516-1023.
 
 
Thank you for viewing and sharing this blog site.
 
Sincerely
Leonard Love
