The Anderson County Redemption

In honor of my recent stint as a guest of East Tennessee’s finest, today’s blog entry will be written by “The Shawshank Redemption” narrator Morgan Freeman.

Strange things happen to a man when he staggers down a hallway at three in the morning, bleeding and damn near naked, and unexpectedly encounters an officer of the law. Yes sir, mighty strange things indeed.

Now I know it might sound farfetched to you and me, but that’s exactly how Sean Terrill came to be in the Anderson County jail in the summer of 2005. At first glance he didn’t seem like much of anything special, certainly not in those smiley-face boxer shorts.

There was no smiley on his face that night, I can tell you that. I can also tell you that after a few more hours in that cell, he would probably never have smiled again. It gets so a man in stir doesn’t even bother to wonder about the things going on around him; that part of the mind isn’t well suited to life on the inside, and neither was Sean.
