Glenn Langohr's New Book: Underdog, The Pelican Bay Hunger Strike, Reveals the Story Behind the Story of the Recent Inmate Death at Corcoran State Prison

In Langohr's new book Underdog, he strives to shine a spotlight on some of the injust ways California prison's deem inmates incorrigible and house them in solitary.

The California Prison System houses a mixture of Mexican cartel members, Mexican mafia, Bloods, Crips, and thousands of other street gangs fighting for control and the author turns this story into a pulp thriller of true crime.

The author of Underdog, Glenn Langohr, takes you on a journey back into prison as he remembers a prison riot days before his release date where he left his friend on the way to Pelican Bay...

The story follows the author years later as he visits his friend in Pelican Bay during a prisoner developed hunger strike against sadistic and cruel guards who get off on their isolation and enjoy adding violence to their torture.

A spotlight on the flaws at how Pelican Bay determines gang validation and solitary confinement.

"A great analogy between caged dogs in an animal shelter, and prisoners in an overcrowded jail. A blow-by-blow description of the dialogue between four race leaders as they try to maintain the peace, and keep the factions from destroying themselves. Not the sort of thing you would read about in the media so it is all quite an eye-opener. Gives a great insight into the problems inherent in a mixed-race prison and how the prison authorities handle it. Some of these individual warders are human while some are sub-human. A most interesting and absorbing 5-Star read. I personally would like to see a sequel to this book."
