Fantastic story blog, Gangstories, a guy writing about growing up a thug in West Seattle.
At the time, Madpack was like the Navy Seals of Seattle gangs, all 200 pounds and crazy as a loon. I drove a Chevy van at the time, and we drove to the projects to pick them up. Six Samoans sqeezed in, two of which were notorious gangleaders at the time. To this day I don't know why they helped us.
The writing is great and the stories are horrifying, funny, and redemptive all at once.
