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.
