Let’s not forget that the USA were a deeply troubling, offensively racist, international bully long before the current total loser president was vomited up by the dysfunctional American voting system. As we bathe in indignation about the current clown in the WH, we forget that the US conducted a plain awful and murderous foreign policy since WWII and that the repression of minorities lies at the very heart of American culture. It’s all about the money, folks.

Who is better cut out to write about escaping from Maximum Security and being an outlaw than someone who has lived through it all?
Roy Harper has been incarcerated in Mississippi since 1981 for armed robbery. He has gained nationwide notoriety for two highly publicized escapes from a maximum security prison in 1983 and 2000 and for his efforts in the courts to reduce brutality and injustice in American jails.
Harper is the author of SHANK, the story of David “Tool” Roney, an outlaw on the run, a novel of struggle, adventure and the complexities of justice.
