"How many more Americans would you have killed if you hadn't fought in combat?" the President asked Rosen. " Every leader from every civilization since time began uses god, guns, and gut philosophies to recruit their best and their worst without prejudice."
Wondering about murder as a device to survive? Dennis J. Stevens, a celebrated criminologist's new book, traces Rosen through Chicago's gang streets to black power brokers and corporate America to the Oval Office.
Rosen learns the art of warfare through Vietnam to Chicago's Democratic National Convention where cop violence cures-all. Killing is a way up and out of genetic grief for some of us. Know who's standing next to you?
A clear and present danger emerges from this book about murder, love, and betrayal, despite America's love of predators. With the 2016 election of a shoot-first President, predators will freely roam American streets groping whomever won't fight back.
