I remember we read a piece of that book in my English class when I was in High School, last year. Was pretty interesting.

Does anybody know whatever happened to Colton Simpson since his trial for the jewelry store robbery they put on him?

I haven't read Colton's book, but I know him personally. He was always into some shit back in the day. I think his crippin day started much later than the ten year old shooting he claims to have commited.

Myself and his older brother know as Richard Perry were tight back in the late seventies, and early eighties. All three of us went to the same jr., and sr high school together. I never banged just kind of an affiliate, and if anybody can reach Colton you ask him about DADA and he can confirm this info!

We lost contact after high school, and would see each other at parties in the windsor hills area of L.A. I heard all kind of stuff about Colton doing wayout shit, and I wouldn't doubt he was able to carry out any mission.

Colton was one of those pretty boy type of dudes, who always wanted to prove he was hard and not just a pretty boy image! We came up when bangin was on the rise, and to prove what I'm saying his grand mother owned the original fat burger on western in the thirties hood. I guess that's where it all started.

I hope he beats that case, and makes the best of his opportunity! I'm gonna check his book out, my name may come up. . .ha ha

Peace Colton
DADA

CCO (Consolidated Crip Organization)

This was an organization or a prison structure mentioned in Monster Codys autobiography, does this signify at least some kind of organization with the Crips in the California penal system . i am a ex banger myself, and I have always wondered about a certain type of code and organization intended for the ''Crips'' in California of course I don't want to expose anything or bring anything to the forefront to give to much to the public, some stuff should just remain not said, but are crips misconstrued as being unorganized.Is the CCO just a jail thing.There some members within the ''Crips'' who bang to reckless and act like that's how its supposed to be but does the ''CCO'' change that in the penal system.



I heard the only thing that is the back bone for crips in the California prison system is the Kumi 415 and the BGF,what purposes does this serve in prison, and is it something that's lets say still cherished by crips when they are released from prison.

That's interesting that Simpson plagiarized Monster as he's from the Rollin' O side of things. I haven't read the whole book but rather parts of it at the bookstore.

I am currently reading it and it's a good book.
Colton Simpson doesn't try to make himself look like a hero too much I think. He tells facts (well, at least what we take as facts, because some people may have objections to some things he tells) from the very beginning to I-don't-know-when-since-I've-not-finished-it-yet :mrgreen:
