      [Chapter Twelve][Chris: Involvement with restorative justiceafter reentry]

    • 00:04

      CHRIS: The Rock program has contactedme a couple of times to come backand to share with them what my progress on the last two yearshas been.And it's been interesting, because I'vebeen able to engage with the people who were extremelypunitive to me, and in some ways fair, and some ways,very unfair.

    • 00:24

      CHRIS [continued]: And we had very difficult relationships,because it wasn't always easy.But I felt like they really did help me.And so I was happy to come back to themand tell them that I'm doing better,and that I'm actively engaged in society,and I embrace some of the things that they taught me.

    • 00:45

      CHRIS [continued]: Most importantly is that I embracethat we have to live in the society together,that we are all here living in this little community,and that restoring ourselves to communityactually meant something.So I get the opportunity to see these people.I email them every now and again.I'm talking about working with you guys with this book.

      CHRIS [continued]: And I feel like I could reach out and talkto them at any point in time.The Rock program has contacted me a couple of times.They've actually asked me what was done welland what was done poorly in their program.Because I think that they are reallyseeing restorative justice as somethingthat's emerging in the criminal justice department,

      CHRIS [continued]: and that has a huge benefit.And I was able to realize what was a huge deterrent for mewhen I entered the program.And that said, you're never given the full picture.You're never given the panoramic viewof what this is going to look like, and what could go wrong,

    • 01:51

      CHRIS [continued]: and what will happen if you do the program correctly.So from the time that I was arrested and pretrial services,there was no entity to tell me, this is what you're entering,and that the Rock program and restorativejustice has a particular pathway,and that these are their outcomes that can happen.

    • 02:13

      CHRIS [continued]: So I was going through it blindly,and I made a lot of mistakes by going through it blindly.Being arrested a couple of times and thrown back into jailhad a great deal to do with the factthat I didn't understand what the significance wasabout their zero tolerances in what areas.And I needed an overview.

    • 02:34

      CHRIS [continued]: And I found that if someone would have justsat down with me and explained the whole programand given me the broader picture,it would have been tremendously helpful.
