Kids Meet Guys with Felonies | Cut

– Did you guys ever feel the
need to protect yourself? Going to school or walking home or? – Um. – Not really ’cause people are
super nice to us at school. – Oh, are they super nice? I gotta go visit that area. (upbeat music) – Hi, how are you guys doing? – Good.
– What is your name? – Helena. – Helena? Hi, I’m Jeff. – Ethan.
– Ethan. How’s it goin’ bud? – What’s your name? – Kyle.
– Kyle. – I’m Brett. – Brett. Brett and Kyle. How do you guys know each other? – We’re sisters.
– We’re sisters. – Who’s older? – I’m 11. – And I’m nine. – Do you have any kids? – I got two kids. – Do you have any sisters or brothers? – I got a couple. – Who do you love most in the world? – I’d have to say that would be my wife. – So, where do you work? – I work at a warehouse. – What do you do there? – Drive a forklift. I do that from, say, six,
seven in the morning, to about six, seven at night. – We only go to school for six hours. (laughing) – You guys are lucky then. – Hey, you guys ever get in trouble? – Yes.
– Yes, a lot of times. – I’m the troublemaker.
– You’re the troublemaker? – “Go to your room!”
(laughing) – A lot of times he picks a fight with me and sometimes I pick a fight with him so we’re kind of both troublemakers. – So both of you guys
are in time out together? Well at least you got company. – Have you ever gotten in trouble? – Uh yes, I have gotten in trouble. – Like serious trouble? – Been kind of a longer stay, grounded, where you can’t leave this certain area, say it’s a square. – Wait, oh. I got it.
(laughing) – You’ve been to jail before. – Yes, I’ve been to jail. I wouldn’t say I was a good boy. I was kind of an acter-outer. – That’s what my sister does. – Have you ever been arrested? – Yeah, I’ve been arrested a couple times. – What for? – Possession of a gun. – Why were you arrested for having a gun? – Well, you have to go
through a certain process to be able to carry a gun, so I didn’t know about that process so
I just went and got a gun. That’s a big no no. – What did you get in trouble for? – I got in trouble for growing marijuana. – What’s a marijuana? – It’s drug. It’s legalized now, like alcohol. – Was you a drug dealer? – Well, I’ve been called that. So I guess yes. – Why did you want a gun? – Where I grew up, it’s pretty rough. I took it upon myself to
prepare myself for war, kinda. – Oh. – Did you ever use your gun? – No, I was lucky. I didn’t have to use it. But I was ready to, though. If I was walking
somewhere with my daughter and somebody had a problem with me, you know, I would have
to protect myself, so. – Was jail boring? – Jail was extremely boring. It was watching a lot
of TV is what you did. – Just imagine, everything that you do, you play sports, you go to school, you’re home with your family. So just imagine all
that time, by yourself, in a confined area. – What did the jail look like? – Woo, well. It kind of looked like this. Only four walls. – Jail is behind bars with
policemen holding weapons. Yay. – What was in your cell? – A bed. You have a toilet next to the sink. It’s all together. – Well you can have a phone. – No, you can’t have a phone. They take all your phones. They won’t let you have inside anything. – Was there anybody else in the– – [Man] The cell? – Yeah. – Depending what type
of individual you are. If you’re an angry person,
they’ll put you by yourself. – Where would you go for the bathroom? – Right there in front of everybody. – That doesn’t sound pleasant. – No, it does not. You have no clue.
(laughing) – What do you eat in jail? – What do you eat in jail?
– I always wondered that. – You always wondered. Not too many good things. It’s tough. Like, you probably got some nasty stuff in your cafeteria probably
that you don’t like eating, like some meatloaf or somethin’. – No, I like all the cafeteria food. – Oh yeah? What about you? – I mostly like pancakes. – Pancakes?
– He’s a picky eater. – Was it like you could
make friends in jail, or? – I wouldn’t wanna say
friends, because you really don’t wanna trust nobody. It’s not like going to
a Girl Scout hang out camp out or somethin’. – I had to make friends with
people that could protect me. It’s a very strange different
kind of relationship. – At your school, do you
have a group of girls that you all hang together? – Yeah. – And then it’s another group
of girls that hang together. – Mhm. – The blacks and the Latinos, we never see eye to eye. We can never play jump rope together. We could never, you know,
never associate together. – Are you guys like not
allowed to interact or no? (heavy exhale)
– Not allowed? Um. – It’s very competitive. Everybody’s trying to be
better than another person. – I have to get you before you get me. – Oh. – [Man] You understand? – Yeah. – It’s not a place to go, you know. – Yeah. – Have you ever tried
to escape from prison? – No. I knew I wasn’t gonna escape. – Maybe if you were
smart enough you could. – Smart enough? Yeah. Probably so.
(laughing) – Are you a felon? – I am a felon. Somethin’ that I can’t change. I wish I wasn’t. – How is your life different? – The biggest change in my life is that many employers, they
don’t wanna hire people that have been convicted of felonies. – Could you work at, like… – A restaurant? – Maybe washing dishes. – A bank? (scoffing)
– They’ll laugh at me. And tell me to get the heck out before they call the police on me. – Oh. – I can’t own a gun. I can’t vote. – I can’t vote. – Oh. – [Man] You lose that right,
once you get a felony. – Well, I don’t really think that’s fair. – Nothing is fair. – I mean honestly, it’s just a mistake. You went to jail for two years and then for the rest of your life, you’ll never be able to vote again. – Everybody should give
everyone a second chance. – I agree with that, and I wish I could get a second chance in a lot of places, but a lot of places don’t allow that. – Will you be a felon forever? – Um, it’s a process called
expungement that I can get one of my felonies reduced
to like a misdemeanor. But it costs a lot of money. But it’s possible. I’m working on it. – Are you still getting
watched over by polices? – No. They figured I was doin’
good enough and that I was keepin’ out of
trouble, that they could let me live my life without
them watchin’ over me. – Do you regret of what you did? – Everyday of my life, I do. – Do you feel happy that
you’re out of prison and you’re free and you’re
with your family and? – Very happy. Very, very, very satisfied. I figure, you have to
go through the bad times to get to the good times. – Yeah. – Do you think I’m a bad guy? – No.
– No. – Even though I’ve been to prison? – Yeah. – Even though I have a felony?
– Yeah. – High five.
(chuckling) – You think I’m a bad guy
because I went to jail? – No.
– No. – No. – No? – Everybody has good in them. – Your parents did a good job on you. (laughing) I’m sure they’re very proud of ya. – What about you little guy? You think I’m a bad guy? – Maybe if you were smart enough, you could’ve escaped the prison. – Kyle, you said that earlier. (laughing) – Yeah. – Hey, it’s Marina from Cut. Thanks for watching

  1. The one girl that said “so you were in jail for 2 years and when you got out you can’t vote ever again? That’s not fair” she’s figuring it out

  2. “Maybe if you were smart enough you coulda escaped” lmao if this kid was older he woulda been fucked up

  3. Man we all don’t get to vote the government decides who becomes president look at trump he wasn’t the vote of the people

  4. “I had to make Friends with people who could protect me, it was a different kind of relationship” whoa whoa whoa we know what that means

  5. Felon in grey: "what about u buddy, u think I'm a bad guy?"
    Kid in red: MaYbE If U WeRe SmArT EnOuGh U CaN EsCaPe ThE PrIsOn
    Sheesh my manz missin a couple chromosomes😭

  6. "Why were you arrested for having a gun?" Oh god!!!!!!! AMERICA What are you doing to your kids????????

  7. I hope that this opens peoples eyes towards what is and what isn’t a bad person, because sometimes it’s the people that don’t have a felony that is even more dangerous than the one with the felony

  8. little boy: "maybe if you were smart enough you can escape the prison."
    5 minutes later
    lb: "maybe if you were smart enough you can escape the prison."
    former inmate: Wipes face "yeah"

  9. Why is there a stigma against people who paid for their crimes? They are not incarcerated…. it's like a teenager who as they grow up and get into their 20s 30s 40s etc. still say they are a teenager. I feel its negative labeling for those who did a crime and did the time and society won't grant them amnesty even though they took their punishment. Start making DUI'S felonies and see how many people are then included in that spectrum.

  10. Oh come on… the guy had a gun and he didn't use it on anyone… he can't get it dropped to s misdemeanor???? unfair. and the other guy grew weed when it was illegal and he can't get his reduced either??? Weed is legal now. So both these guys are pretty much screwed for the rest of their lives because they are rich enough to pay to have the charges reduced. I agree with the kids… not fair. So now they can never vote, own guns… but the worst is the way it will effect them getting a job. The justice system is so messed up… its sad

  11. i think this is smart. they arent scared of who they are talking too. though they have been in trouble, they are still respected.

  12. I feel like the man with the face tattoos is a really nice guy they way he talked he seems so humble. Also I can’t believe going to jail for weed that’s sucks so much!!!

  13. "Oh so yall in time out together? Well at least you got company.." Wtf LMFAO! That thinking is the reason…

    Edit: 3:01 His reaction had me DYING! this mufucka took a DEEP BREATH n said "ohhh…." Jail fucked him up! LMFAO

  14. Ba ha ha ha.
    "Well I've been called that, so, I guess yes!"

    Bro, no! You were just living in the wrong time! Welcome to 2019 👐

  15. The worst thing about this clip is the miss information about voting !! As long as you are not surviving a sentence or on parole or probation you can vote as a convicted felon.

  16. I don't know about other states but it's for damn sure easy to get locked away in florida,I'm only saying this to give people a chance to be more careful in the state of Florida! Department of corrections is a booming thing here. A very successful business.

  17. The black dude seemed like he wasn’t tryna tlk about it in which case he shouldn’t have done this. The white dude was open and really trying to teach the kid
