Maybe, but think about it. I would much rather be "out in the system" with all it's troubles and problems - and trust me, I've been down there pretty low with some of the worst - then in the F. when the best is happening around you, it's just not worth it for what you end up having to give up, most importantly, your self-esteem, your personal liberties, your mind, your own family. Maybe jail would be worse, I've never experienced that. But even then, you could learn a lesson from your bad fortune and turn your life around, turn the experience around and help others, write a book and help others, there are many things that could come out of it, or if you were wrongly accused and found a sympathetic lawyer, you could sue the system and get big bucks which happened to some gentlemen recently.

Look at the exmembers that were torn apart emotionally and torn from their families and the young people that were sexually abused - there's no retribution and no one even to confront, there's no closure. I can't think about it without getting really angry. Nothing like that happens to me "in the system."
