A true account of the author's drug dealing past that turned into trumped up organized crime charges over a bad business deal with the fabricator of Custom Craft Harley Davidson's.

Another true account of how the corrupt California Prison Union used terror tactics with then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger relating to the 3 Strikes Law. Harvard lawyer Daniel Morris has since confirmed it with, "A shameful lie."

Roll Call is a true prison story with a cast of characters that include Mexican drug cartels, Southern California street gangs and Hell's Angels all fighting for their piece of the drug culture. Add a good detective squeezed out of the loop by an overzealous narcotic detective; a robust prison union calling bad shots; a handful of drug criminals trying to find their conscience and you have the perfect recipe for a revolutionary uprising, bound by blood, all leaving the reader wondering, who are the real criminals? A view never before seen, from the inside of the criminal justice system looking out. The author, Glenn Langohr takes you on a journey from a runaway childhood, to addict and drug dealer, into the drug war for an inside look at Mexican cartel wars, corrupt narcotic detectives and a California Prison Union bent on breeding bigger criminals.

Excerpt
“Troy I need a place to hide out!”
“Don’t come here! The lead detective was asking
about you and arrested two people for drug offenses.
I’m sure they told him you were here!”
“Where is CROSS ROADS RECOVERY?”
Chapter 1 5 9
I parked around the corner from the recovery
center, took my plates off, and walked. At the front
door there was a sign that said they weren’t open until
six a.m. It was 5:30 a.m. I walked back to the garage
I’d walked past and listened. I heard people talking and
kept looking and found a peephole drilled through the
garage door. I looked through it and could discern a
few bodies sitting on chairs. I knocked and whispered,
“Damon! Sir Rott!”
I heard the talking inside cease, and then Damon
telling someone to look through the peephole. “Who
is it?”
“Sir B.J..”
I heard Damon get up and the door open from the
garage to the backyard. I walked over to the side where
the gate opened and saw Damon standing above the
fence line at 6’3. He studied me with highly skeptical
eyes with his head cocked back like he rarely believed
anything before it was ultimately proven. He opened
the gate and stepped through in a tank top that showed
his sculpted frame that looked like chiseled armor from
hundreds of thousands of pushups, handstand pushups,
pull-ups and callisthenic exercises that shredded the
core muscles to the bones. I watched his granite stoic
622 Roll Call Glenn Langohr 623
face change and bless me with a knowing smile from all
those years ago. I stepped into the garage.
“This is Dan and Eric. I want you two to go inside
and tell Jade B.J. is here.”
I shook hands with Dan and Eric before they went
inside.
“Jade runs the house and helps out a lot of people in
need. I got out of prison after all those years and found
out my wife turned into a Saint! She’s keeping my ass
in check. All she asks out of people is that they tell the
TRUTH and keep the dope fiend games and drama out
of the house where people are trying to get into a sober
life where they can get their SOUL, kids and families
back.”
I thought about all of the drama I had in my back
pocket and wondered if I should just keep it there.
How could I? My mind kept replaying the beating I’d
heard Vince getting. I had to find out if he was alright
and decided Damon had a right to know and chose if
he wanted to get involved or not. “I have to talk to you
about Sir Vincent the Valiant.”
I explained details in a nut shell that led to the phone
conversation with Vince explaining his intelligence
gathering and discovery dossiers that led to my hearing
him being beaten. I watched Damon’s stoic granite face
flash full of concern and followed him to the pay phone
in the garage. I watched him call a 714 number that
ended in 666.
“What number is that?”
“It’s the Orange County Jail.”
I felt chills going down my spine. We listened to
Vince’s charges, street terrorism, extortion, resisting
arrest and assault and battery on a police officer. Then
the secretary told us Vince wasn’t housed in the jail, he
was in a county hospital in Santa Ana.
Damon called the hospital and we found out Vince
was in critical condition from head injuries. He was in
a coma.
I told Damon, “I’ve got a key to a P.O. Box Vince
managed to ditch with all of the evidence but I don’t
know which P.O. Box.”
“I know exactly where it is. It’s in Trabuco Canyon.
He told me about it in our cell in the Pelican Bay
S.H.U.”
Chapter 1 6 0
Damon borrowed Jade’s Hummer and we drove
away from CROSSROADS. At the end of the street a
caravan of undercover vehicles raced through the stop
sign toward the recovery center. From the passenger
seat through the double tinted window I saw detective
Pincher in his Crown Vic., the white van and three
other units. Damon called Jade to let her know and
hung up when he started getting yelled at.
We got to the P.O. Box and went to number 88.
The box was stuffed full. I pulled out a video camera
marked in stickers, CANDY 007, and three boxes. On
top of one of the boxes was a note. It was in code. Damon
recognized the code and said they were ancient ruins.
He knew the code. We hustled back to the Hummer and
I played the video footage and explained what Candy
was doing on her homegrown dancer/escort production
company. I imagined what watching this footage must
have done to Vince’s heart after six years in a cell for 23
hours a day. I opened the first of the three boxes and
asked Damon, “Where are we going?”
“I don’t know.”
Damon pulled over and called Jade from a
payphone.
626 Roll Call
“Damon the gang task force just left! They want
to know if you’re with B.J.! They said he has a paroleeat-
large warrant and is wanted! You have 24 hours to
report or you’ll have a warrant! I wouldn’t tell them
anything because I know it always gets twisted and they
threatened to put my recovery center out of business!”
“Jade, Vince is in a coma over some evidence he’s
obtained against the task force. I need to go over the
evidence somewhere. Where can I go?”
“Damon! Don’t get involved! Give the evidence to
an attorney!”
“That’s where Vince got the leads and they were
just going to use it for black mail!”
“Damon, you’re choosing Vince over your family!”
I watched Damon struggle with the loyalty issue.
I knew he couldn’t turn his back on the cell mate he’d
lived through so many crises with, in prisons packed
with ultimate pressures producing ruthless animals
and discarded souls. How can you explain to someone
who hasn’t been there that your conscience won’t allow
you to leave a brother behind, it’s the only loyalty and
honor you’ve got left.
“Jade, I won’t get caught up... I just need a place to
go over Vince’s discovery intelligence.”
“Go to my sister’s house in that gated community
we had dinner at last week in Laguna Niguel.”
Damon was pulling on the telephone cord so hard
it snapped.
Chapter 1 6 1
We pulled into the gated community and met
Jade’s sister.
“I just got off the phone with Jade. You’re welcome
to use my house and I’ll be praying for you nonstop!
I’m on my way to the airport right now for a conference
in San Francisco. I won’t be back for a week. Please
think things through and pray about them before you
do anything!”
We entered the mansion through the garage and
went upstairs to the bonus room to make a headquarters
to study the evidence. The first box was addressed to
a court house and more specifically, the head D.A. I
opened the box and pulled out an artistic piece of paper
that had been fashioned to look like a parched scroll.
In beautiful writing I read a Bible verse I was familiar
with, Matthew 7 verse 1. JUDGE NOT, LEST YOU BE
JUDGED. LET THOSE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE
FIRST STONE. There was another note. I, the sender
of this message am a product of this area, the same as
your son. I like your son, got caught up in a prevalent
drug using culture and went to prison over it. I can tell
you that prison life turns the disease of addiction into
an AFFLICTION much harder to escape from. Prison
breeds tattoos that represent race, territories and streets
628 Roll Call Glenn Langohr 629
where violence is a big part of the solution and the only
way. Would you want that for your son? I’m asking
you to observe the dates I later mention; on those dates
I beseech you to send everyone on your court calendar
from that day with a drug crime to a treatment center
rather than prison. No exceptions. If you chose not to
go with this program get your popcorn and a drink
ready to watch your son make the news.
I put the video in and Damon stopped me.
“The coded ruins Vince left behind said that he was
able to use the same video camera the D.A.’s son used
to record his sexual escapades, unbeknownst to the girls
he was sleeping with ,to build up a homegrown porn
collection he bragged about. Vince flipped the script on
him and used the same video camera on him.
The footage showed a white beach-style looking guy
in his mid twenties with bleach tip spiked hair with his
back to the video camera. He was weighing up product
on a triple beam scale from a healthy pile of speed to
his right where more than twenty plastic baggies were.
We heard Vince ask, “How much did that half a pound
of speed cost you and how much do you usually make
from breaking it down like that?”
The trendy drug dealer turned. He looked standard
issue for the area with a few tattoos, flashy silver rings
and a Silver Star belt buckle. “I make a couple thousand
a week off the kids in college. I’m actually helping them
get their degrees.”
The next box was marked CHIPCOM. I opened
it and listened to Damon explain Vince’s notes he’d
deciphered.
“Vince spent a lot of time on this one and never
came up with a strategy. He mentioned he thought the
chairman; Raymond Senior was a good man who was
misguided and power hungry. He noted how much the
senior loved his son and how much satisfaction he got
from donating to causes. Vince mentioned wanting to
steer the powerful chairman into becoming a leader
philanthropist who helped ex-prisoners dig roots in
the community as youth leaders by using their past
experiences for something good. “
We watched the video footage of the chairman’s
son Raymond Junior. It was from a camera phone.
Raymond Junior was dressed in designer clothes and
looked like a G.Q. model with brown spiked hair. The
only thing that gave him away was the flashy Silver
Star belt buckle and all the dope on the table he was
weighing up on a digital scale. There were ecstasy pills
and a pile of speed with a number of baggies. I saw the
similarities between Raymond Junior and the D.A.’s
kid in that they both had that invisible leash around
their necks to their dope, holding them to the sense of
power that made them feel like a god. I put an audio
cassette of a phone call in and hit play. We heard Vince
say, “Big Ray! What’s up with my level four shot caller?
What’s the business holmes?”
Raymond junior responding, “What’s up Big V.?...
What are you doing you big old pimp?”
“Pimp? You’re the one hording all of the sexy sluts!


Professional Reviews

Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media
A harrowing, down-and-dirty depiction--sometimes reminiscent of Steven Soderbergh's Traffic--of America's war on drugs, by former dealer and California artist Langohr. Locked up for a decade on drugs charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call, a light fictionalization of his troubled life. "I went from obsessively pacing my cell and wondering and worrying about how I was actually going to get my attorney to defend me, and how many years this sentence would bring," writes Langohr in an afterword, "to realizing that if I find a way to write what's in my head, I can find a way out of this hole I had put myself in!" Roll Call makes for exciting reading--gunplay, covert operations and backhanded deals abound. A vivid, clamorous account of the war on drugs. --Kirkus Discoveries, Nielsen Business Media, 770 Broadway, N.Y Yk



Orange County Reviews
"Spellbinding story of the drug war. A page turner! A full robust story and an inside look at California's harshest prisons."


~ Stephen Hillenburg, Creator of Spongebob SquarePants
"Compelling material."
