Book Introduction: When John Barrett Hawkins was incarcerated at Donovan state prison in San Diego, he participated in a delinquency intervention program named “Convicts Reaching Out To People” (CROP), where teenagers are brought into the prison to hear inmates speak about their crimes, gangs, bullying, drugs, self-esteem and prison life. CROP was founded on the belief that the best way to reach teenagers who are getting into trouble is through story-telling. Each convict stands before the group and gives a personal testimony concerning the crime he committed and the lessons learned. In THE DIRTY NASTY TRUTH Hawkins brings this invaluable story-telling program to the general public. The book includes these chapters, among others:•Hawkins’ involvement in a million-dollar insurance fraud that was directly responsible for the murder of an innocent man.•Life in Prison – including, riots, rapes, murders, stabbings and other horror stories.•16-year-old Diego Jones’ gut-wrenching story of a gang shootout that resulted in the deaths of two teenagers.•The Blockbuster Bandit’s story of armed robberies and fist-fights in the California Youth Authority.•Tim Harris’ sordid tale about gangbanging teenage girls as part of a gang initiation ritual.•The Party Animal – is the story of a happy-go-lucky surfer kid whose drug addiction leads to murder.•CRIPS gang member Roderick Johnson’s life story, including drug dealing, bank robberies and gang shootouts.•The Deadly Love Triangle – is the tragic story of a prominent lawyer’s encounter with a mysterious woman.•Johnny Alverez’s roller-coaster ride as a jewel thief and Mexican gang member.•The Gentleman Bank Robber – AKA Joe Jackson’s gateway drug story wherein alcohol and marijuana became the gateway to a destructive cocaine addiction.•An in-depth discussion on low self-esteem – the primary cause of juvenile delinquency – and a 10-step plan for building self-esteem.THE DIRTY NASTY TRUTH is the one book that every parent needs to keep their teenager out of trouble.
