Wasted Honor -

Carl R. ToersBijns is the author of the Wasted Honor Trilogy [Wasted Honor I,II and Gorilla Justice] and his newest book From the Womb to the Tomb, the Tony Lester Story, which is a reflection of his life and his experiences as a correctional officer and a correctional administrator retiring with the rank of deputy warden in the New Mexico and Arizona correctional systems.

Carl also wrote a book on his combat experience in the Kindle book titled - Combat Medic - Men with destiny - A red cross of Valor -

Carl is considered by many a rogue expert in the field of prison security systems since leaving the profession. Carl has been involved in the design of many pilot programs related to mental health treatment, security threat groups, suicide prevention, and maximum custody operational plans including double bunking max inmates and enhancing security for staff. He invites you to read his books so you can understand and grasp the cultural and political implications and influences of these prisons. He deals with the emotions, the stress and anxiety as well as the realities faced working inside a prison. He deals with the occupational risks while elaborating on the psychological impact of both prison worker and prisoner.

His most recent book, Gorilla Justice, is an un-edited raw fictional version of realistic prison experiences and events through the eyes of an anecdotal translation of the inmate’s plight and suffering while enduring the harsh and toxic prison environment including solitary confinement.

Carl has been interviewed by numerous news stations and newspapers in Phoenix regarding the escape from the Kingman prison and other high profile media cases related to wrongful deaths and suicides inside prisons. His insights have been solicited by the ACLU, Amnesty International, and various other legal firms representing solitary confinement cases in California and Arizona. He is currently working on the STG Step Down program at Pelican Bay and has offered his own experience insights with the Center of Constitutional Rights lawyers and interns to establish a core program at the SHU units. He has personally corresponded and written with SHU prisoners to assess the living conditions and how it impacts their long term placement inside these type of units that are similar to those in Arizona Florence Eyman special management unit where Carl was a unit deputy warden for almost two years before his promotion to Deputy Warden of Operations in Safford and Eyman.

He is a strong advocate for the mentally ill and is a board member of David's Hope Inc. a non-profit advocacy group in Phoenix and also serves as a senior advisor for Law Enforcement Officers Advocates Council in Chino, California As a subject matter expert and corrections consultant, Carl has provided interviews and spoken on national and international radio talk shows e.g. BBC CBC Lou Show & TV shows as well as the Associated Press.

Living a Principle

Living a Principle by Carl ToersBijns  -

Life is good and we live it to the fullest – Part of that living is making choices and although life is complex at times we like to keep it simple, sensible and authentic. In other words we like to keep it real and stay away from superiority complexes or personalities, superficiality looks or fake smiles. We like to keep it honest and real.

Doug Ducey has shown me how fake, superficial and dishonest he is but the Republicans voted him as their candidate. I think this selection was a ridiculous choice – not the best choice for sure and I care about you and what you need for your stability, your future and your happiness. Read this blog -

I don’t waste money as I have little to give or spent. I don’t buy flashy things but I do like to do things worthy or worthwhile the effort to make things rewarding for self and others. It could be a lot of fun doing this together with people I care for and know.

Today, I am a registered Republican announcing my support for Democrat Fred Duval for Governor of Arizona. He is the better choice for all of Arizona. You can agree or disagree but the party has let me down in their manner to put up six candidates for governor when they very well knew ahead of time, this would split the vote so that Doug Ducey would win with his dark money. Their in-bred fighting caused good men (and a woman) their chance to become legitimate leaders.

However, it’s not the money that upset me, it’s this division amongst Republicans who are willing to attack each other for their own self-gain. In the end, we all lost as Republicans for the man chosen is not the right man for the job. He will destroy Arizona and further the malevolent policies of those who run Arizona today through their proxies including Governor Brewer.

I have a friend who is now working for Fred Duval’s campaign as a law enforcement liaison. Many of you will remember him to be Tixoc Munoz, executive director of Arizona Peace Officers Association. He called me today and asked me to join him to help Fred Duval win – I said yes, yes I will help him.

This is not a hypocrisy – this is staying true to the basic principles I fought for when supporting Ken Bennett who supported law enforcement. There are no two faced lies here or a change of viewpoints as they remain the same using a different vehicle or mechanism. The only pretense and falseness is now on the other side where the GOP candidate bought his way to an election he cannot win and should not win.

Honor, Code, Loyalty and Duty has no party – has no single man – Consequently, the man who carries Honor, Code, Loyalty and Duty for the right reasons is the man to support.
