What happens when life becomes a living ‘hell on Earth’? There are many ways this can become a reality and one is entering the justice system. Tacoma-Native, Terrance Turner has a harrowing tale to tell about his adventures and misadventures as one of our juvenile offenders convicted and incarcerated. Turner aka C.A.U.T.I.O.N. has thus far defied the odds of recidivism and has extended his triumphant story of survival beyond the walls and the mental prisons which plague so many who return to incarceration situations to add to a sad story.
However, Turner is sharing a different story – he tells his story not only as a speaker. but as a vocal and visual artist, not to mention an educator. C.A.U.T.I.O.N. has spent his time post-incarceration as an exemplary citizen – not only opening a non-profit studio at one point, but continuing to serve as a volunteer, member of multiple boards and organizations and speaking at penal institutions, colleges and universities about his life and some lessons he chooses to share. This short featurette produced by online media group, Soul Pancakes, is an intro to one of the shining stars you should know and people worth supporting in our communities.
