I am very sorry for how badly you were treated.  Having once upon a time 
spent some time in jail (thankfully very short) I have some small 
understanding of how bad it can be.  

That said, you choose your actions as much now as you ever did.  So why 
these particular choices?  Surely it is no great surprise to you of all 
people that humanity includes some seriously nasty and animalistic (or 
worse) individuals.   So how can having to deal with that too upfront 
and personal so affect what you choose to do with your abilities?

Yeah, well, multiple editors have been wrong quite often in the history 
of successful books.  If you have something in you that is book length 
you want to say and saying it is as important as anything else you may 
currently care to do, then by all means do so.  Editors be damned.
