Imagine walking down the street minding your own business. Looking at the clouds, paying attention to the different shapes of trees and listening to the sounds of birds communicating to each other. You notice something unrelated to nature that seems to follow you wherever you go; the stares from other people and the feeling of judgment. The reaction that your presence has on another person. You automatically create a deeper issue within yourself and of the reactions of others around you.

Being a criminal, however, also has an enormous amount of negatively surrounding an individual.
