Bryce, #582440, is 26-years-old and is serving life with no chance of parole. He has been at Angola for 3 years, and said it's the best prison he's been in. He's there for second-degree murder, but is trying to fight the charges. It was a bar-fight, someone threatened his brother, he pulled a gun, it dropped and fired. The stray bullet killed a man. The original charge was manslaughter, but, as Bryce said, "This is Louisiana." I asked Bryce how he survives knowing he'll never return to the outside world. "How do I keep going? It's all about respect in here. As long as I respect the next man and don't show weakness then it's all fine. The rodeo is something I look forward to all year so I behave 'cause this is a real privilege."
