Greetings friends,

We can’t keep up with the JJIE (Juvenile Justice Information Exchange) website, who is posting our pieces faster than we can send them.  We are truly honored to be in partnership with the JJIE which is based at Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, GA.  They are the only publication/website covering juvenile justice and related issues nationally on a consistent, daily basis.

Today they are running Darnell McGregger’s piece, “Consumed by the Gang Life.” Darnell is a first time contributor to The Beat Within.
He wrote this piece from the California Men’s State Prison in San Luis Obispo, CA. He has been incarcerated since age 19 for a gang-related murder.

If you want to read other entries from The Beat that the JJIE has
posted, here’s the link…

Thanks you for your continued support. Please consider sharing these important writings with your community.
