Breaking The Code is a true story of murder, drugs, gangs, a non-existent street code and the imminent release of a psychopathic murderer, possibly into your neighborhood, town or city…

By Hal Hannon

Praise for Breaking The Code:

Sometimes raw, sometimes emotional, but always compelling, an honest look at the street every growing child will see… Far more than just a great read about murder and injustice… Full of wisdom, insight and advice that could save your child… A must read for every parent and every teenager… You cannot protect your family from what you do not understand… Fascinating, I was being taught and didn’t even realize it… – Richard S

Brutal truth for Kerry ChangThere is no real respect without truth.  This is where you are respected enough that you will get the truth you deserve.

Gangs, Crime, Addiction & Street Life – What We Can Do

There is too much misinformation about gangs, about drugs, about thugs, and about the “street code”.   Additionally, abuse of women and children need to be condemned not just for the violence.  They also need to be condemned because of where they lead.  It is my hope, through the publication of the short homilies in Breaking the Code, as well as short, informative pieces, to help you to be more aware of the root causes of all those societal problems and the devastating consequences of them on your family.

In doing so, I might report on public figures who are failing in their duties.  Or I might discuss institutions that are failing to serve the public or honor the public trust given them.  I might also inform you of specific criminal activities.  Or I might zero in on a single crime, or talk with you in broader terms that may relate, in general, to gangs, drugs, crime, family, addiction and/or abuse.

My hope for you

Will I offend you and/or others as I do this?  Yes, most certainly.  I don’t do it to offend you though.  I do so in the hope that your deeper understanding of these situations will allow you to examine your own actions.  The goal is to give you perspective as to whether your actions mean that you are part of the solution or part of the problem.  Hopefully, thereby it will lead to a more fulfilling life for you and for those whom you love, not to the disaster that too many experience.

I also do it in hope that those of you who are parents will gain some insight into the perils that your son or daughter might face.  It is this insight that will allow you to equip your son or daughter with the knowledge and understanding that he or she will need to avoid becoming part of the gangs, to avoid becoming involved with drugs, to avoid being an abuser or an abused indivi
