Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Sean Clark’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 Sean Clark 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 Sean Clark 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 Sean Clark’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, Sean Clark 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.

Often when providing coverage I have to tell writers not to repeat information that has already been revealed via the visuals or dialogue. I then receive email follow-up questions that go something like this: But how will the other characters know the information unless its told to them?
Sean Clark – Also, dont feel like you have to show the information being displayed by the technology every single time. Maybe we see Harold in front of the computer and watch him sob, but we dont learn why until later. Knowing when and how to reveal information is part of the challenge of creating suspense in a story. But if the story calls for the information to be revealed, you now know how to do it properly.
This is the correct way to handle technology in a scene. The writer can do this as many times as necessary in the scene to reveal vital information being provided via technology. The key to remember is the information must be vitally important to the story or theres no need to use the ON TV, ON COMPUTER SCREEN, ON PHONE DISPLAY, etc.
This is easier said than done, but you need a group, or a series of readers, who will commit themselves to making your work the best it can be, just as you commit the same to their work. Most editors dont edit the way they used to, and many publishing houses expect their authors to find friends to do that kind of intensive editing. Really. If you are indie publishing, you absolutely must hire a professional freelance editor as well.
Sean Clark – 3. Find a great critique group.
The best thing I know to do to edit a book or script is read it aloud. The whole thing. I know, this takes several days, and you will lose your voice. Get some good cough drops. But there is no better way to find errors spelling, grammar, continuity, and rhythmic errors. Try it, youll be amazed.
2. Read your book aloud. All of it. Cover to cover.
