my actual writing, if you're curious

That the state should continue to play shocked and appalled at recidivism rates is revolting in the face of evidence that people who are not provided with social support have few other choices. When your employment and housing options are limited by the marks against your names, what do you turn to? That which you know becomes appealing, especially when you feel powerless in the face of a system that denies you the right to participate; you can’t vote, you can’t engage directly with the supposed democracy you live in, and you can’t even get help eating healthy food that nourishes you and helps you sustain long-term life changes.
