"By incarcerating drug offenders we're breeding an addiction into an affliction much harder to escape."
Roll Call by Glenn Langohr, available in print and E-book, delves into a true account of his drug dealing past, that turned into trumped up organized crime charges over a bad business deal with the fabricator of Custom Craft Harley Davidson's. Then, the novel follows his path through the prison system to reveal how the California Prison Union used terror tactics with then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger relating to the 3 Strike’s Law. Harvard lawyers have since confirmed with “A shameful lie.”
