    I actually liked this book a lot. Their concept of law and crime was interesting.

    Never heard of him so I looked it up and read this:

    "two slaves opposed to Vesey's scheme, George Wilson and Joe LaRoche, gave the first specific testimony about a coming uprising to Charleston officials, saying a "rising" was planned for July 14. George Wilson was a mixed-race slave who was deeply loyal to his master."
    ----------------

    Damn, sounded like a good plan too and that a$$hole ruined it.

    @Get These Nets
    "Daytona 500" Ghostface, Raekwon and RZA publishing permission is cited inside the back of the book.
    Great book! The author I found out about in a Hip Hop blog review by Harold Stallworth which was for "The Big Machine" by Victor Lavelle, the author has a big following on good reads.
    I'm glad it was at my library. The other book was available through e book through the library.
