"Powerful!" says Ernest Royal, Co-founder of the Mexican Mafia
In today's fashionable Thug Culture, evil has become cool and sexy. Biblical family values have become old fashion, judgmental and uncool. Thug culture has obtained prominent influence through popular mainstream music, video games, television, and film. Greedy and immoral corporations are cashing in on promoting a culture which is destroying young lives physically, mentally and spiritually.
These same corporations promoting the thug mentality in the entertainment industry are investing in the private prison industry and pharmaceutical companies. The thug culture, made up of millions of impressionable youth have become their best customers, not in just the purchase of their products, but through the corrupting of their minds by glorifying crime, gangs, prison, drugs, and alcohol, it has manufactured more and more thugs to fill their privatized prisons in which over 40 percent of the inmates are now on psychotropic medication; for hearing voices, schizophrenia, depression, among other mental illnesses created by the harmful drugs glorified and promoted in their music.
Explore this journey through the eyes of a correctional counselor and journalist, and through the many stories of the incarcerated inmates and gang members themselves.
