Scott Fitzgerald explains how he doesn’t believe that our elders are so much more knowledgeable than us and how marriage sours quickly (He really gets into many different topics). Elders were more than willing to share experiences with younger people but they really don’t want to hear a reaction to their experience. Fitzgerald explains how “They always talk about their experiences but they go on making the same mistakes at 50” (5). A perfect example of this is Troy in Fences. Troy probably left his family in shambles due to his stint in prison but he worked hard to obtained stable job after he finished his sentence.

Once released from prison, one is labeled a felon, often denied employment because of their status, and therefore typically unable to secure work and money. This then negatively affects all aspects of the person’s life, including their finances, transportation, lodging, health, and even family. Statistics show that a family is 40 percent more likely to live in destitution while the father figure is imprisoned.

The government debts are rising higher for every day that passes and prisoners keep falling into the cracks that are called the prison system, either spending their life in enclosure or are unsuccessful in resocializing. What is seen today is a loss for everybody, the prisoner’s life, the government’s money and yet it’s still in existence.
