He Spent 44 Years In A Cell... Now He's Shocked By Modern Technology

Otis Johnson was 25 when he went to prison, in the 1970s, for committing the murder of a police officer. Last summer, after 44 years of imprisonment, he was finally set free.

He's now 69 years old and he feels strangely in the modern society. You can hear his words in the following video. He actually shows great wisdom through his reaction towards the new world's passion with technology: "I see that the majority of people were talking to themselves. Then I looked closely and they seemed to have things in their ears. I don’t know the things, the phone things… iPhones they call them, or something like that. And I thought in my mind, what, everybody became CIA or agents or some stuff like that? Because that’s the only thing I could think of, someone walking around with wires in their ears… that’s what they had when I was out during the 60s and 70s."

It seems like a voice from the past; from a human being who hasn't experienced the power of technology, so he hasn't forgotten the power of humanity. Maybe we should consider his words.
