Default Angry with older brother

It seems like it's back to square one with my brother. A day ago he was picked up and sent to jail. My family is so tired of this. We've been down this road before with him many times before, and it's a lot for us to take. I don't want to get into too much detail, but my mom was suspicious that my brother was hanging out with the wrong crowd again. She may have been right. My brother claims he did nothing wrong, but it's hard to believe him.

My brother was locked up for years and finally got out in '10, right before my high school graduation. I thought things would get better, but it was a rocky road. He was angry his girlfriend had moved on,and didn't understand why people perceived him as being aggressive/angry (he didnt handle confrontation well).

I dont know what the verdict will be with my brother this time, but I'm angry. He's done a lot of damage emotionally on my family, especially our mom. It's not fair for her to have to go through so much pain. I kept having this weird feeling my brother would get picked up again, and idk why. I hope he learns his lesson. I've got a lot of pent up anger towards my brother, but dont know the best way to express it to him. I feel like if I try to talk to him, I'll tell him off. I'm pretty sure dealing with my brother being in and out of jail since I can remember has affected me. I just needed to vent.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained- Marie Curie

Thank you for posting your thoughts. I am trying to understand the feelings of my other two sons, who have had to deal with their brother having many mental issues and now being in prison.

I am glad you were able to come here and tell how this is affecting you and your mother.
Of course you do not deserve to be going through this.
It is not your fault and so you can't change anything.
You are allowed to be angry,frustrated,sad and anything else you are feeling.
