Right Wing Nut? Not

Right wing, left wing, chicken wing, buffalo wing, as long as it is a wing, it has a purpose. But a nut? That's scary.

Then again, what's in a name?

Murderers are everywhere. Unfortunately, those murderers who haven't been caught and convicted are roaming the free world. As you're reading these words, the nurderers are killing people in the name of freedom; they're killing in the name of religion; they're killing in the name of love; they're killing in the name of peace; and they're killing in the name of life.

Then again, who am I to judge?

I do know that Mike and Stephen have served their time according to California State Law. I do know that they are rehabilitated. I do know that they deserve a second chance.

After all, I was there when we learned and taught Alternative to Violence year after year; I was there when we shared with at-risk youth and adults about our crimes and remorse in hopes of preventing them from committing crimes and going to prisons year after year; I was there when we held hands and prayed for our victims and loved ones; I was there when we sang songs of peace, love, and freedom; I was there when we felt there's no light at the end of the tunnel; I was there when our mothers cried after visiting us and when our parole was denied year after year; I was there when we wrote poems, essays, and vignettes about pain, suffering, and love.

Most importantly, I'd learned to love them as brothers. I would trust them with my family.

As for understanding the nature of my crimes and my friends' crimes, please come visit me in Yuba County Jail and I will share with you. You can visit or write to Stephen Liebb C-60825 at San Quentin State Prison and Mike Ngo E21895 at Soledad State Prison.

About my friend who lied to get a job, he lied to feed his three children, to hold an honest job, and to survive. I'm making a justification for his lying again.

Maybe he should get on welfare, sell some drugs, rob people, and go to prison.

I totally agree with you that it's important to judge a book by its content. We just have to bypass the cover and read the book.

I do thank you for your comments. You make me think. I send you peace and compassion. Welcome to my life.

You know that Mike and Stephen have served their time according to California State Law? They weren't given 25 year sentences. They were given 25 years TO LIFE sentences. So, short of completing their life sentence, I don't know that they have necessarily served their time according to California state law.

As for your friend who lied to get a job, he should (and you should as well) realize that there is a spectrum of ways in which a person can react to a particular situation. If your only choices are to lie or go hungry, steal or go homeless, sell drugs or go on welfare, then you have not explored every single option available to you. Think before you act, and you will act wiser.

You can spend 4 years or more to earn a college degree, or you can lie that you've earned one in seconds. Lying is a short cut. You can work for years to earn enough money to buy a brand new car, or you can steal one in minutes. Stealing is a short cut.

After being released from prison, your friend probably would not want to return to prison any time soon if at all. So, just like recovering alcoholics know that there are certain situations and places that they must avoid, so too must your friend realize that he must accept responsibility for his past and avoid taking a step in the wrong direction again. Because, it is rare that someone stops after just one small white lie. Once you make one justification, the next justification becomes that much easier.

I am glad I came across your blog because your posts have been quite thought provoking.

It’s true that lying once is only the start of the ripple effect to lying again and again. Given certain situations in life, people have to do what they have to do. Notorious BIG sold drugs to feed his daughter, there was an old story from China where the thief at night stole money and gold to give to the poor, there are those standing on the side of the streets asking for money. What can they do to feed their hunger? First it starts with physical deterioration to the body which leads to mental deterioration. Under circumstances, people have to behave what they have to do to survive.

I lied under certain situations to make my wife happy through surprises. I lied to kids because I’m joking around. As long as he told the manager he lied and that the managers accept it, let it be. It was under a good circumstance.

My point is that under certain circumstances it’s okay to lie. As long as it doesn’t hurt anyone before you tell the lie, after the lie, or knowing harm will be done during the lie. It was for a good cause. He’s a good man.

It all depends on the nature of the lie. I'm not talking about lying to kids that Santa Claus exists. I'm talking about someone who is lying to get a job. That is a different animal. Because what happens is that once that lie is told, then you have to manufacture other lies to cover up the initial lie.

I don't know if Notorius BIG sold drugs to feed his daughter. But, you are following Eddy down this path of resorting to these binary choices. Do you sell drugs or starve? Do you rob or starve? Do you murder or starve? Of course, no one wants to starve. But are the only alternatives to starving drug dealing, robbing and killing? Of course not. And most people manage to avoid starvation without resorting to these actions.
