Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Asif Ali’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Asif Ali and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Asif Ali production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Asif Ali’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Asif Ali and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Irony sells, so using irony in the title is a great way to attract a producer to the story. Murder stories are a dime a dozen, but writers created irony when they made the crime scene the White House. The irony is showcased in the title Murder at 1600. Note: This title also reveals the genre and poster.
Asif Ali – Think Irony
What images do you imagine would be on a movie poster for your story? Write each imagine on a single line; Man, Woman, Bloody Axe, Woods, Cabin. This title might be Axe Cabin or Bloody Woods.
· ASSIGNMENT: Take a look at your own work in progress or premise. What KIND of story is that? Do you know? That would be a good thing to figure out, right?
Asif Ali – · ASSIGNMENT: Take your master list and think through each story. What KINDS of stories are working in each one? There will almost always be more than one kind of story working, but try to identify at least one for each at first.
Why not start a section in your notebook to collect all the story types youre going to be looking out for from now on? Create your own names for them just like I did above. Theres no right or wrong here. And the story types you notice are the ones youre likely to be attracted to in your own writing.
And that doesnt even scratch the surface! Are you starting to get the idea? Have you even already thought of a few of your own that I havent listed?
