This really is an inside look at gang life!2016年2月28日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I enjoyed reading this book. It gave what felt to be a very accurate portrayal of gang life from an insider. You could sense his honesty in how he felt about his life and the two sides that tugged at him, one the church going good boy his grandmother raised up and the other one being the gang life and all its trappings. You read about horrible things that he did and how he rationalized his actions. You also learn about what causes a black youth to go in this direction and how life in the hood is stacked against them. There is a lot of brutality in the prison system and full on wars that take place between the prisoners. The prison guards are not there for any means of protection. It is a totally bankrupt system leading to recidivism. Of course I don't think anyone thinks it is any kind of rehabilitation system. It is up to the convict to rehabilitate himself. Colton seems to have done this by the end of the book but still the system is stacked against him and steals more time from his life. I recommend this book for understanding a whole part of society that you may not know anything about, growing up in the hood, choices that are made to fit in, and the dire consequences of those actions. It breaks down the culture of the hood, the set, and the prison system.
Think You Know Gangs ? Read This2015年11月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
After the first three chapters I pegged Mr. Simpson as a murderous, violent little cretin. I saw no hope for redemption as he continued his criminal activities. But he tells us of the parallel society that exists along side the one people consider a normal society.In the other the rule of the jungle prevails...... the strong prey on the weak, kill or be killed. The book ends when Simpson is in his mid thirties and between stints in prison having lost friends and family members. He describes his introspection and his mellowing out. Can I respect him for what he did ? No.But his life is a message of a deep problem in this country about opportunity and equality for minorities.

Good look at life inside the gang and its consequences2018年2月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Good look at life inside the gang and its consequences. Author's attitude disturbed me. He did not feel remorse for all the lives he took. Karma caught up with him in prison. He tried blaming all his woes on the man and did not realize he brought all that on himself.
Good read, cathartic.2019年10月20日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Comprehensive perspective from one who lived it. Read this book to gain some insight into gang mentality and freedom from that same mindset.
