This video by I Shot Him, a San Francisco based graphics studio, details the effects of America’s drug war, in Mexico and chronicles the violence by

Mexican Cartels and the military. The video is also available on YouTube, but only with their speech recognition captioning, which even in a simple – single voice – video such as this, is still horribly inaccurate. It’s 2 minutes long, but extremely informative.

It was published by the Washington Post, and brought to my attention by PrisonMovement’s Weblog. The video was Produced by Visual.ly, and created by I Shot Him. The DeafInPrison version was captioned by me.

I’ve been swamped and working hard on getting caught up on videos and other projects, which I know you’ve been waiting for. Trust me, they’re coming. But I wanted to get a post up here, which will bring you up to speed on some of what’s going on within the prison system.

On November 10th, the New York Times reported on the Second Chance Act.

The act, aimed at helping states and localities reduce recidivism, encourages changes like those that have already taken place in Kansas, Texas and Oregon. The states have expanded community-based drug treatment programs, improved postprison supervision and retooled parole systems that once shunted people back to jail not for actual crimes but for technical violations that are more cheaply and effectively dealt with through community-based sanctions like house arrest or mandatory drug treatment.

Still, states that…

Another Criminal Justice Professor Gave Glenn Langohr’s Book Roll Call A Five Star Review

Another Criminal Justice Professor Gave Glenn Langohr’s Book Roll Call A Five Star Review. To Check out the review go here-  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0056C0LW4 

I give the prison scenes five stars. The author captures the little-known nuances of prison life in a vivid and accurate way. Not only do these motivate the story and dazzle the reader, they also testify to the author’s experience and knowledge in California prisons. Only people who know the inside can describe the importance of paperwork, kites, and gang politics in the way that the Author has. It’s just brilliant! My only real complaint is that for a book claiming to be a “prison story”, so little of it is about prison!”

Here’s a bio of Glenn Langohr- Glenn Langohr ran away from a broken home with a death wish and entered the drug war with abandon. Business with the Mexican Mafia and Hell’s Angels became a way of life until the Criminal Justice system interrupted him with Organized Crime charges. In prison he was involved in riots and spent years in the hole. From solitary confinement he started writing and hasn’t stopped since. Now, he is an usher at his church and loves to reach out to other prisoners to help them turn their lives around. He speaks as a guest Lecturer at Criminal Justice colleges and writes articles for newspapers. “I want to show the world and the students and leaders of tomorrow, that we are only building bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders, where in prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape.”

While in Prison on Drug Charges, Glenn Langohr Spent 4 Years in Solitary Where He Wrote Books.

While in Prison on Drug Charges, Glenn Langohr Spent 4 Years in Solitary Where He Wrote Books. As a runaway from a broken home, Glenn Langohr reflected on his bad choices in the drug world from a cell in solitary where he turned it into writing books. 

With nothing else to do in a prison cell for 22 hours a day, Glenn Langohr wrote drug war and prison books. For a complete list of his books in print, kindle and audio book to listen to like a movie, go here- http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00571NY5A If you purchase a book make sure you email Glenn at rollcallthebook@gmail.com and he will gift out a book.

Glenn Langohr started solitary confinement in the county jail in the modules where inmates only come out of there cells for 2 hours a day. In prison he was sent to solitary for riots and investigations. He states, “It is very hard to avoid any violence in prison where the isn’t much rehabilitation. People with mental issues, drug and alcohol issues interact with gangs and people just trying to survive and the ingredients are toxic. In prison every inch of space is decided over and often fought over, like who can use which tables, showers, space on the yard, work out bars etc.”

The first novel Glenn Langohr published when he got out of prison in 2008 was Roll Call, A True Crime Prison Story of Corruption and Redemption. Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media related Langohr’s novel to the movie Traffic along with other accolades. Glenn Langohr has since published 7 other books that are selling well and getting great reviews.

Who Are The Real Criminals? By Glenn Langohr 

I got the chance to speak to some kids on probation in Santa Ana yesterday. My sobriety sponsor Phillip Doran has been doing it for a year now and I went with him for the first time. Phillip Doran is a writer and used to be a Producer of many TV shows so it was a God send to meet him and have him take me through the 12 steps of A.A. After working the steps he has also read and reviewed all of my prison books and helped me see how to market them. I got to share all of this with the kids on probation and a lot more. That God loves them. That if they stay sober, their life will get better, eventually. And that if they don’t get sober, they will pay the price everyone pays for bad decisions. I explained to them how much prison time I did for drug crimes and how God helped me turn things around.

While speaking to the kids I couldn’t help but see them as partial victims. I saw future gang members and future prisoners. How does this happen to the youth? It starts with the family. A divided family is a broken one. Or a family that doesn’t have enough love and wisdom. What about our schools? Same thing, a divided school is a broken one. That is where kids find an identity and where gangs and drugs take a hold.

I wrote my first novel, Roll Call, A True Crime Prison Story of Corruption and Redemption, from prison. Here’s a review- 

“Whacks you aside the head with the force of a baseball bat. Langohr’s incredible description of his fight for survival in prison has ‘screenplay’ written all over it.” John South, American Media 
Roll Call is available on Amazon and other retail outlets in print, kindle and audio book format. To check out all of Glenn Langohr’s drug war and prison books in print, kindle and audio book go here- http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B00571NY5A
