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.

We were once a civilized nation

We were once a civilized society

Before our Congress and state legislators passed laws to make us a civilized nation
We didn’t have the troubles like we do today
There were no gun controls, no infringements of our Constitutional amendments, no mass incarcerations, no building of jails to hold illegals and no walls to climb to freedom
Our schools taught us prayer and how we were blessed by our God above
Before these laws were passed, we were merely human being and not subject of a tyrannical government
We didn’t have to fear where we traveled, who we met or how we married and face being put in chains if we broke those laws.
It was all done by the heart, the mind and soul that was cleansed by faith in God
Because of laws passed, we cannot afford the many things in life that were once free and what we have belongs to the tax man or his proxy
We are now too civilized to make our own decisions. Our freedoms are bought or bartered for behind closed doors and called a gift when offered back to restore it like once before
Our importance was not based on wealth or color or race, our value as a human being was based of who we were.
We had no liberty restrictions; privacy was guaranteed by the constitution and the right to walk free went unchallenged without surveillance
Today, we are enslaved to these written laws laid down by lawyers, and corrupt politicians,

It’s time to clean house and start all over again
