I think its good for you to tell your story but I think more people would be moved by it and support change if you had expressed some emotional regret for what you did. You say you robbed people etc, those are not victimless crimes and are the sort of crimes that deserve stiff punishments. What regret other than being in prison do you have for those crimes? Do you consider the fear people may still have when walking down the street due to your actions? I am really meaning this as a critique of the message and not to dismiss what you are saying. Jail shouldn’t be fun or easy is all.
