Josh Swindell released after almost 20 years in prison

After spending nearly 20 years behind bars for second-degree murder, former pro skateboarder Josh Swindell was released from prison last week in California.

This makes me feel old. Maybe it’s because I am old but I totally remember when this all went down back in the day around when I first started skateboarding. I think a lot of young heads could learn something from some of his quotes in this article:

“I had to grow up to get out of prison,” Swindell, 40, told over the phone earlier

“I learned a lot about why I did that crime, and it had to do with my underlying issues — a lot of ego, pride and stubbornness that wouldn’t allow me to let stuff go.
