    This is Larry Lawton, I want to set the record straight. I never ratted. To this day, I believe a person's word should mean something. I am not condoning crime in any way. As the only ex-con to ever be sworn-in as an Honorary Police Officer and only ex-con to ever be recognized on the Floor of the United States Congress I want to show people that anyone can change. Everyone does change. To get the full story on robberies, prison abuse and rehabilitation, get my book Gangster Redemption. Go to realitycheckprogram.3dcartstores.com/Gangster-Redemption-eBook_p_13.html it is a wild ride. Stay tuned for more.

      You say you never had to use violence...but also once got shot. Maybe there was one time you needed to use violence.

    Larry, the reason they had the guns on one man in the Snatch robbery was to get the team through the metal detector. They had an angle to explain detector tripping on the the larger individual. If all four were carrying, all four would have set off the detector and certainly wouldn't have been buzzed in through the subsequent security door.

    Wow, the disclaimer at the starr is a joke, sort of irresponsible to give so many insights into how you can rob the most efficient things, divert the cops, and also on the side have litle brag about all the drug dealers or whoever else we've tied up or bested. Then at the top of the comments a nice "once again I don't endorse crime.... Hey, wanna buy my book about my life of crime??" Seems disingenuous.
