RC: Tell me about how you got out of the gang?
Joe: I got a nickel (5 years in prison) on a drug charge. I actually got off really light. But anyway, in the camp, I met someone like me...a kid who'd been in a gang the better part of his life. But this guy, he'd found Jesus--turned his life around.
RC: And that was attractive to you?
RC: That's amazing.
Joe: It was. It is.
RC: So you just left?
RC: But you were in prison, right?
Again, let me reiterate that *Joe* is speaking about his former life, before he turned his heart to God. I couldn't have gotten gang details accurate in my most recent release, Fear No Evil, if it weren't for *Joe*. I SO appreciate his honesty and openness in sharing his past.
