Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Karel Curras’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 Karel Curras 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 Karel Curras 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 Karel Curras’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, Karel Curras 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.

Why is this important to writing? Its vital for several reasons. The writer can pit these types against each other in the same scene. The visual speaking person might speak over the slower, feeling speaking person creating conflict, etc. Or the writer might want to start with a touchy-feely speaking person and turn him into a fast-talking stud. Lots of possibilities, but none work unless the writer can easily identify speaking types and understands how to apply them to his/her writing.
After identifying your own speaking type, go back to the café and listen to multiple conversations at different tables. Go when its busy! Identify the strangers speaking types; the man sitting next to the window is a visual speaking person, the blonde with him is hearing, the waiter is feeling.
Karel Curras – Its important to learn to identify the different speaking types in real-life. First, which one are you? Im the visual speaking person. Many screenwriters are visual speaking people, while novelists are often hearing or feeling speaking people who can dwell into the deep recesses of their characters minds.
Feeling speaking people talk really slow turtle speed. They take the time to get every word right and its obvious they feel what theyre saying. They use phrases like I believe what youre saying or It feels good to me.
· QUESTIONING WITNESSES
Karel Curras – IF THE STORY IS A MYSTERY, this section will almost always have these elements:
I have noticed it also tends to be the most genre-specific. It doesnt have the very clear, generic essential elements that Act I and Act III do except in the case of mysteries and certain kinds of team action stories, which generally have a more standard structure in this section.
Remember, Act II, Part 1 is the most variable Act of the four Acts of a story.
