@Bob NortonReally Bob? I lived there from 98-00 and I have to say I experienced the prejudice that AZ has towards low-income and/or minorities. I also transcribed the letters Shaun received from inmates in AZ and the suppression during election with the hispanic voters when I was in England in December. I also was part of the rave scene in AZ during the time Shaun was throwing shows and was a promoter there and you are delusional. Joe is not a good sheriff, I live in a state right next door and we don't have the craziness that AZ has. I don't know what you are smoking Bob. On a side note, I didn't meet Shaun until September in England, we didn't know of each other during the time we both lived in AZ and where in two separate parts of the electronic music scene in AZ. Reading Shaun's book really did explain all those "stories" I would hear about Maricopa County and their jail system to be true. Ironically, all those stories I was told about what they do to inmates was way worse than any of the stories my friends in AZ would tell me about.

I have clean from all drugs for 13 YEARS now and I am so glad and have found reality and real life again and never have been in prison nor arrested for ANY "drug" charges.
