Ahmad Pasley is the scriptwriter and visionary behind this project. He is a published author, poet and playwright.
Ahmad is uniquely qualified to present this material because of personal experience. He was released from incarceration 14 years ago.
For more than two decades, he harbored intense animosity toward police officers. But during his last period of incarceration, he began to recognize the real dangers of criminal mindsets, and the absolute necessity for the presence of law enforcement.
Ahmad is a psychology major, currently working on a bachelor's degree. Studying psychology has helped him to recognize and counter his implicit bias. Psychology has also assisted him in crafting this screenplay, and viewing the issues at-hand from a neutral perspective. He hopes this presentation will encourage others to do so as well.
