He was also a consultant to the Departments of Corrections in Indiana and Missouri, President of the Board of group homes for delinquent youth, a member of the United States Department of Justice's Criminal Justice Planning Agency and spent six years teaching inside a state penitentiary.

    Carlie was an author, lecturer, guest speaker, and advisor, and while retired, continues to serve as a member of the Springfield Advocates for Youth Advisory Board in Springfield, MO. Blood empire is greater than political empire, and the English of the New World and the Antipodes are strong and vigorous as ever. The streets were filled with a new and different race of people, short of stature, and of wretched or beer-sodden appearance. He cannot understand why such an appalling misery affects so many people in the heart of the affluent capital city of the Empire. This would not be so bad if it were all; but it is not all. In the evenings the men can be seen at the doors, pipes in their mouths and children on their knees, wives gossiping, and laughter and fun going on.
