After 44 Years In Prison 69 Year Old Person Tries Keep Up With Modern Life in NY

You can understand where this story is going, It reminds me of a movie of Brendan Fraser called Blast from the Past. Story of the movie was not exactly related to this real life story but it is very close to it. Recently, 69-year old man named Otis Johnson, who was recently let out of prison after serving 44 years for the attempted murder of a police officer, is currently trying to adjust to a very changed modern world from the one he had left almost half a century ago.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera, Johnson spoke openly about encountering new technology.

I got off at Times Square and I was looking at the atmosphere, the new things that was [sic] happening. And I seen [sic] that everybody was or the majority of the people were talking to themselves. Then I looked closer and they all seemed to have things in their ears. …iPhones or something like that. And I thought to my mind, what everybody become CIA or agents or stuff like that. Because that’s the only thing I can think of. Somebody walking around with wires in their ears.
