Tario's Photo


11 years ago Tario was convicted of several bank robberies and robbery of a jewelry store. He was given 96 years for those crimes. He is serving a life-like sentence. That was his first offense and he is now labeled as a "violent offender". While the government allows the co-defendants to take a plea, but are they any less violent? Tario and many people like him deserve a second chance. This draconian type of punishment was deemed appropriate due to our unjustly sentencing guidelines and laws. I by no means condone a person's wrong doing, however, I do believe in justice and fairness for all. No one was hurt. No one was killed. The sentence Tario was given by no means fits the crime and therefore is unreasonable. The justice system allows rapist, child molesters, murderers and terrorist to be released back into our communities daily while only serving a fraction of this time. Look at Jared Foggle, he received 15 1/2 years in low level prison after raping under age girls. He won't even do all of his time and he'll be put on sex offender registry. Richard Wershe ( a.k.a " White Boy Rick") a former drug dealer was sentenced as juvenile and has been locked up for over 28 years. He's serving life in prison and the parole board continuously refuses to consider his release. Savannah Iams 19 yr old was high off prescription drugs when she hit and killed a bicyclist. She will receive 6 months in jail and 2 years probation. Ian Owens is serving 115 years for bank robbery. I could go on and on with how the justice system caters to " real violent offenders " however, I'm sure some of you reading this already know and if not then this is definitely an eye opener. The justice system locks up the ones that sell drugs and rob people for the rest of their life. When they are the people who should receive the lighter sentencing in lower security prisons. Where is the justice in that? Again, I don't condone wrong doing. But ask yourself this, when is it right to give a person who devalues life a second opportunity over a person who simply wants to provides a better life for his family? Who would you rather live next door to...someone who's a thief, a killer, a paedophile or rapist ? { "If you're neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." Desmond Tutu} I am seeking justice on behalf of Tario release. I need your help. I'm asking for a $20 donation that's it... Of course if it's in your heart to do more then God bless you. To many people $20 is nothing but to Tario it can help change his life. Just $20 helps him in his fight for freedom. That's priceless! All funds raised will be used for attorney fees, any additional fees will be used to help save our youth from making the same mistakes as Tario made. { " Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world". Desmond Tutu} Matthew 17:20 Hebrews 13:3 I've been in contact with Attorney Fried, who is very well experienced over 30 years. His background speaks for himself. Please feel free to follow this link to view his background for yourself as to why I chose him. He is willing to go to the Supreme Court. God always sends someone to fight your battles for you all we need is faith. Isaiah 45:2-3 Deu 20:4 I met Tario over 14 years ago in Montgomery, Alabama. He said something to me that made me fall in love with him. We dated for awhile. Then we lost contact but destiny and God brought us back together. God said that what He put together let no man come between. So here we are holding on to His promises. Its been 2 years now that we've been engaged to be married. The government has to approve it and can take their sweet time doing so. We're still waiting for their approval. Crazy huh?? Unfortunately, the government gets to decide everything concerning you and your life while being incarcerated. Tario is a wonderful person with the biggest heart ever. If you meet him you would love him too. He has helped many people through acts of kindness and encouraging words. He is an listening ear to many always trying to figure out what he can do to help. He has made some mistakes in life as all of us have at one point or another. He deserves a second chance in life. God gives us many chances daily. Lamentations 3:31-36 Joel 3:21 Words from Tario.... "Breaking the law is wrong and I'm sincerely sorry for the crimes I'm accused of. I'm not the same person I was when I was convicted of the crimes in which I'm being accused of. After the judge sentenced me to 96 years in prison for bank robbery. I thought my life was over. My first few years was the hardest because I was young and immature. But everyday that passed I grew up. I started saying to myself " I know my life isn't suppose to end like this, I know this is not what GOD planned for me." Prison life is no different from the free world. Only difference is you can't go home. There are still gangs, violence, drugs, and death in here. So it's easy to stay in your same mind set that got you here in the first place. The first step I took to change my life was to stay away from negative people. I surrounded myself with positive mature people. People that wanted their freedom back and was sorry for the crimes they committed. Then I started to prepare myself for release. I would say what I'm going do when I get out of here. Like where I'll live and where I'm going to work at but that's later to come. One of my goals is to be a motivational speaker. So I took a public speaking course. I want to work with youths who are headed in the direction that lead me here." Psalm 145: 16-19, 21:2-3, Proverbs 13:12-13, Mark 11:24-25 God said we have not cause we ask not. I'm asking each one of you to help me seek justice for Tario. By donating $20 each will help pay for attorney fees and bring him home. May God bless each one of you now that took the time out to pray for him, donate to this cause, or simply just share this message with someone. I thank you. Tario thanks you. We are very appreciative and grateful for any and all donations received. {" A person is a person through other persons. None of us comes into the world fully formed. We would not know how to think, or walk, or speak, or behave as human beings unless we learned it from other human beings. We need other human beings in order to be human. I am because other people are. A person is entitled to a stable community life, and the first of these communities is the family. " } Desmond Tutu
