corruption, drugs and the thieving practices of religious
administration in the White House 


Chicago,Illinois (04/5/2013) – Before the al-Qaida terrorist network became a blip on
watchdogs' radar screens, high-ranking leaders of the infamous El Rukn street
gang reached out to buy rocket launchers as part of a plot to commit terrorist
acts in the United States for Libya in exchange for cash. As a result, many
members were convicted and sent to prison. However, one of those El Rukns,
Reico Cranshaw, has written one of the most fascinating gang stories with
global reach.


Cranshaw gives the large picture of gang life in America. The El Rukns’ allies, the Vice
lords, and the Zionist are part of the drug trafficking in America. The
connection comes to light from the story of Vice Lord drug dealer Chauncey
Carr. Chauncey is reaping millions as an unknowing pawn of right-wing lobbyist
and Christian Zionist operatives, who supplies him with unlimited amounts of
cocaine. His suppliers are using the profits to pay for Israeli-spawned
terrorist attacks. But it doesn’t take long for FBI agent John O’Neill to catch
Chauncey trafficking drugs, which results in Chauncey being sentenced to
federal prison.


While in prison,Chauncey meets a convicted terrorist, and despite his dislike for him, he uses
the relationship to get his sentenced reduced by passing information on to
O’Neill—but the FBI agent is killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, leaving
Chauncey in prison. He spends the ensuing years writing about his time spent
with crooked DEA agent and Zionist, Dikko Katsa, who tipped off his close
friends and cocaine field owners, Wally and his family, so that they were able
to clean up the lab before DEA agents showed up.


Upon his release, Chauncey travels to see his son after hearing he has joined Chauncey’s old
gang. On the bus he meets feminist poet, Tina, who shares similar dreams of
publishing someday, and they begin planning a better future together. Their
plans are suddenly threatened, however, when Chauncey becomes the hunted after
Wally learns he is sharing information with federal agents and vows to stop at
nothing to silence him forever.


Cranshaw infuses his real life experiences with the fictional story of Chauncey Carr to show
readers the truth behind the world of gangs and terrorists, and hopes his story
illustrates the reality of gang life and what it’s like behind bars.

About the Author:

Reico Cranshaw spent decades in prison before learning that the written word held the
power to heal. He spent years in solitary confinement and looked to books to
keep him from going crazy. When the prison guards were unable to fulfill his
requests because he had read through every book in the prison library, Cranshaw
began to write. He then penned “Black September” (ISBN 1477527516), after being
released from prison.
