Scott Harmon

Hello my name is Scott Harmon. I am currently serving a DBI sentence at SCI Phoenix of which I have been incarcerated for 10 years. I would love for those that come across these words to know that I am beyond empathic for all the families that have been affected by any senseless acts of violence which lead to the lost of a life because all life is precious. It was a struggle with me prior to joining Right2Redemption and meeting this special group of men because I was so angry that I had been wrongfully convicted and had lost sight that a family had lost a love one. It can be extremely hard to be wrongfully convicted because you’re so upset (and a human being) with the criminal justice system and its biases that most times whether innocent or guilty your main focus is on the system. Since being involved with Right2Redemption I believe I have become a better human with more compassion and less anger. I know that being a part or Right2Redemption will help me become the best possible human I can be. As a child I would ask the adults in my life why do good people suffer. Several years into this DBI sentence it was still a battle because I knew that a family had lost a loved one, a lost that no mother, father or child should have to experience. I still question myself because although I have grown and strive to become a better man and give this world the best of me, I now fully understand and appreciate life and living for all that it actually should be. I believe that those that know me would tell you that I am a “good person” so I constantly ask am I deserving of this DBI sentence? I now ask is any human deserving of a DBI sentence?
