In a comment to that post received a few moments ago, a person claiming to be the founder and director of The Road took issue with the earlier post.
In addition to printing his comments on that blog post, they are also printed below:
As the Founder and Director of The Road I have seen many men change that were deemed unchangeable. Maybe Ace is one of them and maybe he's not, but what I believe is that every human being is valuable and capable of redemption.
Ace has broken laws, burned bridges, and been locked up many times. All of the negative things he has done was under the influence.
If we can support this young man and help him find sobriety and purpose then he will be a success. If we lock him up (and maybe he deserves to be locked up) then the odds are that he will reoffend and not get proper recovery. We are and have been one of the most successful recovery programs in the state (rated by the DMH - MRSS) for several years.
If he can't succeed here then he will probably not succeed anywhere. How about send a prayer for this dude that begins his new journey today.
And as for Mr. Turner, it seems that your life is built on pessimistic criticism. Must be a sad and haunting existence to be such a negative human being. Many, if not the majority, of your articles are based on how "bad" people are.
Why don't you look for the good?
An example would be Judge Mouton. Judge Mouton is one of the fairest, nicest, smartest, gentlest, souls I have ever met. It's not just because his wife was my kindergarten teacher that I say such a thing, but because he and his wife try to inspire and draw out the best in children and "misfits" believing in second, third, and even tenth chances in order to try to redeem the "small" people in this world.
They do more for our community in one calendar year than you have done in your whole life. Take notes and emulate people such as them, for you come across as a judgmental, doomsday, hater. Find some humanity, find some grace, and find some love.
