Rehabilitated? Well, now, let me see. You know, I don’t have any idea what that means. I know what you think it means, sonny.
To me, it’s just a made up word; a politician’s word, so that young fellas like yourself can wear a suit and a tie and have a job. What do you really wanna know?
Am I sorry for what I did? There’s not a day goes by I don’t feel regret. Not because I’m in here, or because you think I should.
I look back on the way I was then, a young, stupid kid who committed that terrible crime. I wanna talk to him. I wanna try to talk some sense to him, tell him the way things are, but I can’t.
That kid’s long gone and this old man is all that’s left. I gotta live with that. Rehabilitated? It’s just a bullshit word. So, you go on and stamp your form, sonny, and stop wasting my time, because to tell you the truth, I don’t give a shit.
