Many of us have wanted to get in touch with an old teacher to let them know how they changed our life. But how about a former prison inmate who tracks down his old warden to say “thank you.” In the 1950s Ramone Tapia made headlines for his escape attempts and leading a prison riot in the Nebraska Penitentiary. After the state hired a new warden, Ramone dropped out of the headlines. That was good news. Recently he shared his story with “Statewide’s” Bill Kelly. It’s a story of how the prison system changed, and how that changed the life of one man.
