Wow! I read this book in one sitting, I couldn't put it down. The way Mr. Langhor writes this book, made me feel like I was in that cell with B.J. and Giant, I actually felt claustrophobic and trapped and could almost feel the pepper spray burning me. MSMAD2009

From the Author

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."

I was not too surprised when I read Glenn's latest book Prison Riot. I previously reviewed Underdog here !
This book was about what happens after a prison riot. The prison dynamic is a hard one to follow, and is not for the faint of heart. Being in lock down was horrible. They do not care if they get your name right, or your information right. The main goal is to keep the prison safe. What has to be done to ensure your own personal safety was a little surreal to me. We take for granted how we live, and our freedom. The thing that I took for granted the most was showers. It is a good thing that these prisoners were not afraid of small spaces. I would be terrified. The guards own you, and everything you do. This is a true story, and that made me feel even more for the innocent prisoners that were not involved in the prison riot. I recommend this to crime buffs everywhere so that they can see the other side of law enforcement. I am Giving this book a 5/5, because I am still interested in reading more from this author. Even though I have already read two of his books.

Prison riot exposes the outside world to the heinous and deplorable acts committed in the California penal system. Racial tension, extreme violence and betrayal are everywhere. It is amazing that the author made it out alive. But he did and this book is a testament to his survival and recapturing his humanity. A definite must read.

A different look inside is what this book gave me. I did not read about the author prior to selecting the book. Now seeing his experiences, I see why the depth was there in his writing. I look forward to reading more from this author in the near future.

While reading Prison Riot, I was struck by how similar this story is to the classic Melville novella, Billy Budd. Of course, the latter was written in a much more stilted voice, and was built on Biblical allegory - but the thread of the story is very much the same.

Here we have a power struggle between a cruel and sadistic Corrections Lieutenant, and a fair minded but ineffectual Warden. The victim in that power struggle ends up being the innocent - the powerless everyman, whom in the Melville book was represented by Billy, and in Prison Riot is represented by B.J. and his friend, Giant.

Where the analogy breaks down however, is that Billy Budd was fiction.

Prison Riot is a book that, as a corrections professional, I found educational as well as a fun read. The books highlights an issue that those of us in corrections do have to deal with from time to time. In a world that is often self regulated and segregated along racial lines there are times that the lines get blurry. Whether it is a white inmate that is involved in a large fight with southern Mexicans or an Asian inmate that feels more comfortable living with an African American that he does people of his own race, things get confusing.

I do hope that the author blows things out of proportion for entertainment's sake. If the correctional officers and staff are truly as vindictive and unwilling to accept some basic truths of prison life something really should be done. I'm about the furthest from an inmate advocate as a person could be and when reading this book I was enraged at the actions of a Lt. and the weak willed Warden.

Time to pick up another one of Glenn Langohr's books. I don't know what I'll do if I ever get through all of them.
