For me this book must be the first in the UK to be written by an insider on Dangerous Dogs and London Street Gang Culture. This gives a unique edge and insight on the mentality of young gang members. Never before has a reader been allowed so deep into the world of Dangerous Status Dogs. Think Tony Thompson and his book Gangs but with an authentic REAL feel to it. Christopher Walkins Journalist. It seems that almost every week the media report an attack by dangerous dogs on some poor victim, usually a child, and yet nobody seems willing or able to look closely at this problem, or to wonder why it is happening. Justin Rollins has decided to set the record straight and explain the myths and mysteries behind the phenomena of status and dangerous dogs, as well as other urban nightmares such as street gangs, drugs and teen violence. Justin Rollins does not write from the cosseted halls of academia, he was a teenage gang leader involved in a lot of violence, this is a writer who has lived the life he writes about and speaks from personal experience. This book is unique in that it exposes the reasons and thinking of the people responsible for urban fears - the first book to do so from a person who has been heavily involved. A must read for anyone with an ounce of curiosity about social trends amongst inner-city youth. Noel Razor Smith Author of A Few Kind Words and A Loaded Gun Kids that are classed as hoodies and chavs, put down, judged and alienated from society choose a breed of dog that is going through the same as them. No dog is born dangerous, any breed can be docile and friendly. It is the man that turns them into menaces Author Justin Rollins.
