GTL committed several wrong acts during their time working with a prison in Louisiana. They regularly overcharged prisoners and the state for phone calls. They also reported phone calls as longer than they actually were. Doing this allowed the company to bring in greater profits than they deserved. Sometimes GTL even double billed their calls. GTL managed to overcharge the state of Louisiana by more than a million dollars. These actions were completely unethical and they harmed the very people GTL is meant to serve. Prison officials, inmates, and taxpayers all suffered because of their actions.
GTL acted horribly in Lousiana, but unfortunately, GTL has ben using their terrible business practices in prisons across the United States. Securus America is deeply troubled by GTL’s actions.

I have always been told to believe half of what you see but none of what you hear. Even though I have heard that I have always been a person who is the first to believe any rumor that I hear especially if it is a mainstream rumor. I fall for stuff so easily. What can I say I have grown up in the social media error and the social media error pretty much gives you so much negative information you have no choice but to practically believe it because after all why would people lie right? Okay, well maybe people do lie but that’s another story.
One of the most rumors I have heard was on a product that I had been thinking about trying on my own hair, Wen By Chaz [http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html]. It is a 3 in 1 styling product that allows you to use 3 products in one bottle. Not only does this save a ton of time because I absolutely hate having to have a ton of bottles in my shower but it also saves me money so that I can go out and buy other hair products hat aren’t associated with me washing my hair. Wen is practically a dream come true for me but for many it has apparently been a nightmare.
Because Wen By Chaz Dean has worked so well for me I have a hard time with the fact that it has been damaging to others so I decided to do some research of my own. This research included stumbling across and article by Emily Mcclure at Bustle. Emily decided to give the sephora endorsed product a try because she too had heard the rumors and wanted to dispel them all. Not only did she give the product a try but she blogged about it and took photos of it to prove it still worked.

She is a rare case of the few people who know true suffering and who now have tasted the sweetness of freedom as well as living away from an oppressive country. Ms. Park’s rare childhood is a result of the fact that she is not only from North Korean, but she is also a North Korean defector who escaped with her parents at a young age.

This book tells her story of her defection from beginning to end and gives the public an insight on her reasons for escaping from the country. Her story has recently been retold by Reason TV, begins with the fact that she was born into a prominent working class family that fell into hard times during the collapse of the economy in the 1990s. This devastation eventually forced the father of Ms. Park to begin smuggling metals to China.
Though this new occupation was a way to provide for his family, he eventually was caught and was thrown into a labor camp. With no money and no way to eat, Ms. Park and her mother and father escaped from the labor camp and fled for the border to China. During this adventure, Ms. Park suffered loss as her father passed away during this time and she suffered from physical pain and starvation.
