Présentation de l'éditeur

"I CRIED, YOU DIDN'T LISTEN IS THE MOST POWERFUL TALE OF HORROR WITHIN THE WALLS OF PENAL INSTITUTIONS SINCE 'PAPILLON.' THE TERRIFYING ASPECT IS THAT IT DESCRIBES AMERICA'S JUVENILE SYSTEM" - Alden Mills, ARETE MAGAZINE
"THE AUTHOR'S WELL-WRITTEN STORY COMES AT THE READER FAST AND FURIOUSLY; SHOCKING READERS INTO AN AWARENESS OF THE INHUMANITY OF AMERICA'S JUVENILE PENAL INSTITUTIONS."- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"I CRIED, YOU DIDN'T LISTEN IS A POWERFUL INDICTMENT OF A SYSTEM THAT MAY HAVE LOST TRACK OF ITS PURPOSE."- Don Davis, THE SAN DIEGO UNION



An early Winner of the "Project Censored" Award of Excellence; I Cried, You Didn't Listen is a powerful story. It is shocking, haunting and brutal. Although it is a rare and valuable document, what is exceptional is not Dwight Abbott's experience, but his clarity and courage in sharing that experience. Dwight tells the disturbing tale of a very young child, first committed to the care of the state because of family tragedy and bad luck. Once institutionalized, he must learn to live within the cruel dynamics of a system that grants power through violence and leaves children at the mercy of predatory adults. He is continually faced with the need to choose between dehumanizing options: Be predator or be prey. Even in Dwight's description of racialist violence we see the effect that the social system has had on him – cementing stereo-types and prejudices that become self-fulfilling prophesy. Dwight's account is terrifying. Upon reading it, one must recognize that, faced with the stark choice between victimizing another and being a victim oneself, the morals and values that make sense in freedom fall away. Perpetrating violence appears as the best option for self-preservation. This is the fundamental dynamic at work in Dwight's institutional life. I Cried, You Didn't Listen shows that, within incarcerating institutions, violence in all its forms – sexual assault, cliques, crews, gangs, emotional abuse – is essentially about power and control both over and above one’s own sense of self. -Books not Bars

Biographie de l'auteur

Dwight Abbott is currently serving seven life terms at Valley State Prison in Chowchilla, California. He was raised and trained by the California Youth Authority, from the age of nine. This prepared him to continue his adult life in various penal institutions and penitentiaries throughout California and Oregon. Places include: Preston Castle, Paso De Robles, Deules, San Quentin, Folsom, Salinas Valley State Prison, Pelican Bay and many unmentioned. He is a hardened veteran of the Aryan Brotherhood among others. He is now an accomplished author of "I Cried, You Didn't Listen" and "CONSEQUENCE", the aftermath. He presently is showcasing his books and short stories on Ebay and www.DwightAbbott.com. His sole remaining Purpose in this life is to have one more young 'rebel' write him and say that Sonny's book had a part in a change of heart; thus avoiding the Path that Sonny took. Dedicated to: All the children who shared with me the suffering of physical, mental, sexual and emotional brutality. To those very same boys I met again as an adult, while I served time in Soledad, San Quentin, Folsom and in Oregon state and Washington state penitentiaries. To the many I have watched slaughtered on those prisons’ yards, and to those who went on to kill - three of whom I wrote to often until they were executed by the state that raised them. To all the incarcerated children, who because of cruel physical beatings, sexual molestations and mental manipulations, become society’s outcasts and nonconformists; not because they are bad children but because they have become products of the system. To the children who are - and will be - growing up as I did, filled with shame and guilt, unable to speak with any member of a society that refuses to lift its head from the sands of ignorance and denial. To the future victims of these victims. And to the following men: George Jackson, shot and killed by guards at San Quentin; Billy Cook, murdered at San Quentin; Gary Gilmore, excuted by the state of Utah; Tony Zamore, murdered at San Quentin; Wallace Michael Ford, murdered at Vacaville; Dennis Dimmick, murdered at Vacaville; Jimmy Trembly, murdered at Soledad; Kenny West, shot and killed during a bank robbery; “Joker” Jones, murdered by prison guards at San Quentin; “Wop”, murdered by inmates at San Quentin; Jason, poisoned at Oregon State Penitentiary; and to Charles Manson, a friend whose soul was killed by the System. I dedicate this book. - Dwight Abbott

5.0 étoiles sur 5 First Impression When Book Arrived 17 avril 2012

Format:Broché
I have my book in hand! I ordered from[...] on the first order, but now have just purchased three more for friends. The cover is beautiful, I love the red writing on the black and white photo. The back is very clean and clear to read. The captions from the author, Publishers Weekly, The San Diego Union and Arete Magazine are impressive. Thank you for the time you spent putting this book together. We will now begin to read it.

I was looking into a mirror as I read I Cried, You Didn't Listen. I refused to look back after my discharge from California's Youth Authority.Today I have this thing I do whenever the memories threaten to take me. Abbott has written what so many of us cannot. I' looking forward to reading his next book, CONSEQUENCE. I'm thinking I'll be looking in a mirror. Thank you Amazon.com.

Another must read book offered here at Amazon.com. Reading through the pages I've got to question if there are any among us listening. The wide-spread abuse recently admitted by the California Youth Authority administration confirmed for me, as it should other readers, that truly I Cried, You Didn't Listen is a non-fiction work.

It's heartbreaking to read about the horrific conditions in the California Youth Authority. Dwight has wriitten a candid story of his childhood in the the juvenile "justice" system. I'm so sorry we don't do a better job for the children locked up in our system. His book is enlightening. I hope he writes a follow-up to his book Consequence about the time he spent when he was on parole and then why he went back into the system and what is it like being incarcerated again after he'd been free.

"Physically exhausted, psychologically numb and emotionally fragile, your incarcerated children are crying out in their anguish, and you don’t hear them, you are “too busy!” They are left to feel they are standing inside a cosmic toilet that you are about to flush!

Even more so today than the years I’ve written about, everywhere inside juvenile prisons, children are forced to experience a never-ending gauntlet of abuse... Boys as young as 8-9 are forced to fight, viciously like wild animals, during their journey to survive a system in which the odds are stacked high against them. It is they, the children, the most gentle and tender of spirits among us, who become the most terrible when fighting to keep their souls." D.E. Abbott

It is inconceivable that children are treated this way, even today, and we close our eyes. Yes, of course, it's much easier to look away, because when we look within juvenile prisons, what we see is a reflection of our incompetence to protect our children, to raise them well with care and love. We don't like to see the very image of our indifference or our cruelty.
There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children. -Nelson Mandela

Read this book. It costs only $0.79. Please, read it! It's so easy to condemn the little thugs and tell: "He deserved it all. It was his fault. He just had to stop fighting against the other convicts and to become a good boy. But he is incorrigible."

No one, NO ONE, would be able to do much better than Dwight did considering how things went for him (how things go for most of the children institutionalized in those juvenile jails). Dwight was only nine when he was sent to CYA for the first time. And he did nothing wrong to be sent there. It was because his parents' car accident. Probably no one could babysit him while his parents were in hospital. Someone thought a good idea to send him to that place where he was brutalized and raped during the first hours after his arrival. And the wardens looked somewhere else during this time! Poor little boy!

As Books not Bars reviewed:
"It is shocking, haunting and brutal. Although it is a rare and valuable document, what is exceptional is not Dwight Abbott's experience, but his clarity and courage in sharing that experience. Dwight tells the disturbing tale of a very young child, first committed to the care of the state because of family tragedy and bad luck. Once institutionalized, he must learn to live within the cruel dynamics of a system that grants power through violence and leaves children at the mercy of predatory adults. He is continually faced with the need to choose between dehumanizing options: Be predator or be prey.

I Cried, You Didn't Listen shows that, within incarcerating institutions, violence in all its forms – sexual assault, cliques, crews, gangs, emotional abuse – is essentially about power and control both over and above one’s own sense of self."

I've also seen many videos in You Tube about juvenile jails lately like these:

And look for : Selling Kids into For-Profit Prison, you will see how blind we could be.

Jails are conterproductive. They're supposed to transform criminals in good citizens, but they transform everybody in worse criminals. Is it really what you want? Even for your children? Prisons are tools of vengeful societies. That's all! It's so uncivilized, uncaring and unimaginative. I can't understand that countries that considered themselves as the best civilizations are still throwing people in jails and forgetting them there. What could happen to them there, nobody cares.

Read this book and imagine yourself in Dwight's shoes. If you still don't understand after that, you're basket cases.
