    I’m going to support and purchase this book. Still, Monster is the best book Ive ever read. If you haven’t read monster by “Kody Scott”,its a must read. I read monster back in 1997.. It’s a great read. Monster Kody is from-or was from ETG.

    WBAL in Baltimore, Maryland News May 2, 2016 2:41 P.M.:

    “Spring is here and so are the crazies”, according to local Police and FBI and that Seattle Police say officers reported being struck by sticks and batons by some anti-capitalist demonstrators at a May Day protest Sunday in Seattle and that according to reporters “mayhem is expected to rise with the thermometer” and that out of towners are expected to wage war on the locals with plenty of looting and rioting and shoplifters stabbing security guards with screwdrivers as they get away with the loot, according to recent reports.

    Anyway, dozens of black-clad people gathered at Westlake Park in downtown following a peaceful, permitted march earlier in the day by advocates for workers and immigrants and after while, things took a turn and that the anti-capitalist demonstrators, who did not have a permit from city officials, carried signs, including one that said “We Are Ungovernable And We Are Anarchists” and another saying “Hope Law Enforcement Have A Long Hot Spring And Summer” and the groups gathered at the downtown park before starting to march through the streets looking to start stuff and make a scene.

    Some downtown businesses had earlier boarded up storefronts, anticipating violence and a shoplifter stabbed a store manager with a knife after stealing some items from a local department store and that Seattle Police reported seeing people with poles with bolts, rocks and cans of spray paint in the crowd and as they tried to arrest some of them, two of them has their tasers removed from their wastes and the tasers were used on them along with their property taken out of their pockets. Also, Police said there was some property damage, including broken window at a residential building during a course of an elderly woman being stabbed and money taken out of her pocketbook along with several cars being shot up and set on fire and guns and packs of matches have been stolen from places to use in violence, according to Police and FBI reports.
