How do people who aren’t tough get by in prison?It all has to do with how you carry yourself.Problems arise when people act hard and tough when they are not. The thing is that some one WILL ”check your nuts” if you portray yourself to be something you’re not. And if you’re running around with your chest out, that is just asking for trouble, especially if you ain’t tough. Think of it like this: you claim to be a prize fighter, so you dedcide to step in the ring with Iron Mike. Now what do you think will happen. Next thing that happens (after you’re exposed as being weak, but like to act tough) is that the vultures come out to pick away at what remains of your body and soul.
