Dumbass, Party of One

I recently read this article about a man who was released last year from prison, after almost 19 years, for a murder he did not commit.

The man's name is Frank Sterling. And last week, he was accused of sexually abusing an 11 year old boy.

Yes, that is disturbing and sad. Yes, I'm sure Mr. Sterling has some deep emotional issues he is dealing with after almost 2 decades of being unjustly incarcerated. But more than anything, that is f*^#ing stupid.

Why in the world would you risk going back to prison after you just got a new lease on life after being locked up for 20 years? Maybe ol' Frank just really loves prison food or the warm hug of a jail cell.

Either way, Franky's an idiot. It's one thing to relapse after a stint in rehab for using one particular drug of choice. But it's quite another to spend 19 years in the clink as an innocent man, and then put yourself at risk for going back for an altogether unrelated crime.

I don't know what Frank Sterling did in prison for 19 years, but it obviously was not cultivating his good sense.
