Mr. Whalen Gibbs
Mr. Gibbs' presentation on mass incarceration included encouraging news of the successes of the Louisiana DOC re-entry programs. An average of 17,000 inmates are released each year. Educating inmates vocationally before they re-enter society is a key element, but he said that many arrive in prison with no moral compass -- and without that they will not improve. He spoke of mentor programs where Lifers are taking short-term inmates and helping them to turn their lives around. It gives hope and encouragement to the Lifers to know that they can make a difference for someone else, even though it is too late for them to have a life outside of prison walls. However, Mr. Gibbs also told of one particular Lifer, who had such an extraordinary record in prison with mentoring and educational accomplishments, that Governor Jindal eventually granted him a pardon. He is now a productive member of society.
