Charles Carpenter

Author Charles Carpenterabout this book: The appropriately titled autobiography HANDCUFFED by CHARLES CARPENTER is a well written collection of memoirs written while in the confines of California's maximum security prison (New Folsom). The book chronicles my early years as well as the experiences that shaped and formed my thinking as well as my perception of life. I explain in detail what led to my membership to a faction of Crips known as Tray-Five-Seven, located in Pomona, California.

I also highlight the bad choices I made as a result of various environmental factors coupled with sheer foolishness, which ultimately landed me in and out of different juvenile facilities during the 80's. In light of today's youth joining gangs, getting involved with drugs and crime, I penned this book in hope that our troubled youth will gain insight into the social ills that plague many of America's urban neighborhoods. Finally, the book covers my quest for romantic love, and my experiences with disloyalty and betrayal, and it's consequences.
