Your right, I'm not stupid enough to waste 13.5 years in prison when I could be developing a career, raising a family, shooting, golfing and enjoying the riches of freedom! For once you actually are correct.
The main 'proof' of your capabilities is that when offered to mesh back into the real world with real people, you've proven yourself utterly incapable of shucking off the convict mentality.
This, combined with the enemies that you've foolishly and unnecessarily made, at least one of whom has been pissed off enough to recon you on the ground, means that you're probably going to eventually go back to jail. Sending a parolee back to jail in today's environment is not that hard.
