Pro Active Situational Survey PASS 2008 creator Basil Thomas submitted to the Board of Chosen Freeholders and Department of Corrections. Documented proof from 2008 that tensions were high this initiative was submitted as a remedy. As far back as 2008 when I came home there were people who paraded themselves as if they were friends confidants even brothers. And for good reasons it being insecurity some would rather do anything to you just in order to set you back. Especially when a person might be at there all time low that's when demons will offer you crumbs. In a hope that you'll show solidarity to an agenda or mission that's meant for personal advancement. It's scary when you begin to realize through the experiences that the people who might walk and talk as you do may be the guiltiest. Struggle is sometimes blinding but god gives us the vision necessary to recognize those bearing false gifts and I did. Some people get so encouraged by other demons and caught up in there lies that they'll never stop no matter what. As long as I live the only thing I've ever tried to do was to create an atmosphere for everyone that encourage positivity as well camaraderie. Please review this initiative I prepared in 2008 and sent to the Board Of Chosen Freeholders on numerous occasions accessible via I will be making an extensive 18 page report accessible to the public which documents the everyday discrimination I was subjected to each and everyday while working for Hudson County from 1981-89 and once again from 2012-2013. It just goes to show you know matter how much things change they stay the same but discrimination has a new color in this day and age. ~ THE WHEEL
