Leaving The Criminal Mentality Behind (Apollo Nida)

Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida and their sons

During a recent episode of “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” currently incarcerated felon, Apollo Nida, complained to his lawyer that his wife, Phaedra Parks, an attorney who is the mother of his two toddlers, is going to divorce him and he will be bankrupt.

Nida stated he wants to divorce Parks and demand money and a house from her, as he does not want to come out of prison in 5-8 years with nothing and have to resort to crime again. His words were very telling. He has not left that criminal mentality behind.

It’s the same criminal mentality that led to him being imprisoned before on mass auto theft charges. He clearly has not learned his lesson, which is not fair to his family. Judging by his words, promoting crime and having it has a back up plan, Nida is on a path to re-offend after his current prison stint and needs to forsake that way of thinking. 

The point of the prison system is to reform criminals. Some do not re-offend after the experience of having their freedom taken and following a regimented schedule. However, some do and it is regrettable. Forsake the criminal mentality and leave that lifestyle alone.
