A Hard Cell: My Incarceration And The Prison Conditions That Almost Ended My Life
A TRUE LOOK INSIDE THE US CORRECTIONAL SYSTEM
April 2, 2015 started like any other day for reserve deputy Bob Bates. He left his home in South Tulsa to report to the sheriff 's office. Their mission--apprehend a criminal by the name of Eric Harris. Unfortunately, Harris would not live through the night, and the course of events that transpired would change Bob's life forever.
In A Hard Cell, Bob tells his side of the story--from the events of that night, to his admission to prison, to his eventual release. In particular, Bob shares the horrific story of his life behind bars to highlight the rampant problems in the United States prison system.
Be warned, this book is not for the faint of heart. Inside, you'll read stories of violence, depravity, drugs, racism, and worse. The sad truth is this is the life for over two million inmates within the correctional system. With this book, Bob sheds light on this nationwide issue in the hope that no one else has to endure the horrors that he went through.
