There was once a young man who went to the State reformatory for a serious crime. He wasn't there more than a week and another young man choked him through the cell bars. That young man was a homosexual predator that used intimidation and violence to victimize other young men. He had murdered another young man in the reformatory and was acquitted via the perjured testamony of other inmates who supported him.
The predator graduated to the State Penitentiary where he again met the man that he had choked through the bars. He didn't choke the man this time; he used intimidation and raped the young man twice. The young man didn't tell on him. The predator got out of the penitentiary and raped and murdered a young woman. He's now back in the prison system. The young man he'd raped twice, managed to get a protection order against the predator, so they are kept apart from each other.
The young man who got raped twice, came into the path of other predators, in the protective custody unit, who intimidated and terrorized him until he was beat down psychologically into submission. Two of the predators sodomized him. He didn't tell on the predators. One of the rapists had previously been convicted of raping another man in the protective custody unit. Why was this predator allowed to remain in protective custody to continue to victimize others? Why? Why? I'd like to know why.
The young man who was sodomized decided he'd had enough. He took a food tray and hit one of the predators in the face with it. The staff asked why he'd did it. He wouldn't tell. He was punished and kept away from the predator.
Twenty years have passeed, the young man who was raped is now a middle aged man. He's much wiser. He has told the prison staff what happened. He is now getting therapy because he hears voices that call him a faggot but he's not gay. He never was. He feels dirty when memories and voices remind him of the rapes. He's forgiven the predators he had to, he didn't want to live with hate.
Two of the predators are still in the prison system serving life. Do they have more victims? Why are they so full of hate? Why? These are questions that the victims often asks himself. The man who got raped is a survivor. I'm that survivor. My name is Rickie. I'm now in therapy/recovery for the first time after keeping it inside for 20 years. There's hope. I thank God that I'm a survivor and not a predator.
