I'm so shamed to think that the home office have created the life Charlie is trapped in. A man who can barely see because of the hours spent with only a 40 watt bulb as illumination, who can't stand daylight for pain in his eyes!
His treatment has been barbaric and they are responsible for the mind of Charles Bronson (Salvador). Most of his violence is born from the sheer frustration of a man who has been refuse connection to any humanity.
The whole book is so tragically sad. So tragic that it barely seems realistic! But that truly is Charlie's existence, it's not a life!
The lack of compassion is sickening, rapists and murderers are treated better and have more human rights.
I'm not saying Charlie is innocent, he admits he's not, but he is a product of the system, institutionalised and to release him would be so hard on him. This is a man who doesn't breathe fresh air anymore! But, I genuinely believe that with the proper help, support & guidance Charlie could be reintegrated into society. He may never live a normal life on the outside, often needing his solitary to return to his safe haven, but it would still be more of a life than the existence he has now.
I'm left feeling bitter towards our home office & penal system. I'm left feeling frustrated & saddened. I think this book made me feel grateful more than anything, for the ability to do the mundane like see the sky, touch another person & breathe in a lungful of fresh, clean air. All things Charlie is deprived of.
I want to revolt! If we can campaign for the rights of animals and fox hunting, dolphin captivity and elephant taming for circuses then why the hell aren't more people campaigning for Charlie's rights? His basic human rights? I'm left feeling angry on his behalf. Is there any wonder this man ripped off roofs? I want to rip someone's head off in frustration just from reading this book & I haven't endured 24 hours of being enclosed anywhere, never mind a windowless cell or a cannibal cage.
My heart goes out to this man, although violent & unstable he doesn't deserve this treatment, nobody does. God bless you Charlie, stay strong.
