Glenn Langohr's Prison Memoir Got Another Great Review From a Criminal Justice Professor at U.C. Irvine
Professor Keramet Reiter, an Associate Professor in Criminal Justice at U.C. Irvine came across Glenn Langohr's books about prison and asked for an interview. Glenn Langohr agreed on one condition, that she have her students read and review it.
San Clemente (I-Newswire) January 31, 2013 - Glenn Langohr found out that Professor Reiter focused on the prison side of the Criminal Justice system and asked her to read his book Underdog, A True Crime Thriller of Prison Life, the fourth book in the series. Glenn Langohr has written eight books about the drug war and prison life after serving time in prison for drug charges. He started writing from a cell in solitary after a prison riot and now speaks to students and civic groups about his writing and history.
In Underdog, A True Crime Thriller of Prison Life, Glenn Langohr points out the flaws in the gang validation process that keeps inmates house in solitary confinement indefinitely. He takes his own experience in riots and the issues that cause them and takes the reader on a journey through the process.
B.J and Damon are two White inmates who get involved in a gang war in a California maximum security prison. The prison administration realizes B.J's sentence is up and they falsely blame Damon for organizing the inmates and use his gangland tattoos to send him to the Super Max at Pelican Bay.
"This is a page-turner of a read about life inside the California prison system, told from the perspective of an experienced and thoughtful former prisoner, who describes remaining unaffiliated with the various prison gangs, but collaborating and mediating among them to maintain peace on the prison yards.This first-hand account of the California prison system is not only interesting, but provides a useful counterpoint (and compliment) to more academic accounts of prison life." U.C. Irvine Professor Reiter
Glenn Langohr's books can be found on Amazon and other retail outlets in print, eBook and audio book.
Copies for review and interviews upon request.
