Three years later he was arrested for a payroll robbery on September 16, 1925 in St. Louis, Missouri and was sentenced to five years in prison, of which he served three and a half.

That is the basic structure for any hero in any piece of fiction. Travis uses all of the weapons he purchases from Easy Andy in his all out assault on the brothel to rescue Iris and get her life back on the right track. He also planned to use his hidden sleeve gun when he tried to assassinate senator Palentine. Travis could be considered a psychopath, but he has good reason for his actions.

At the time of his plea, prosecutors said Grass admitted to a series of illegal activities, from backdating contracts and severance letters to misleading the company and federal investigators about a $2.6 million real estate deal. They said he also met with employees called to testify before the grand jury and encouraged them to lie. During Grass' time at the head of the Camp Hill-based company founded by his father, Alex Grass, its stock price soared as Rite Aid engaged in an aggressive expansion effort. But the grand jury said the boom years were accomplished by "massive accounting fraud, the deliberate falsification of financial statements, and intentionally false SEC filings." Less than a year after
maintained a regional monopoly over crack cocaine within the territorial domain of the gang by having his men at every possible crack dealing corner, and he invested a good amount into making his community satisfied with their gang, because a rebellious community is something that they cannot afford to have.

Police corruption has increased dramatically with the illegal cocaine trade, with officers acting alone or in-groups to steal money from dealers or distribute cocaine themselves. Large groups of corrupt police have been caught in New York, New Orleans, Washington, DC, and Methodology: Corruption within police departments falls into two basic categories, which are external corruption and internal corruption.

My ideas and examples have come straight from the book, along with some.
