Operation Flytrap: L.A. Gangs, Drugs, and the Law

Susan Phillips dissects an LAPD drug operation from both sides of the fence, telling the story of Operation Fly Trap.  Seldom does a book on this subject really delve into what happened to all the parties involved, the gang members and their friends and relatives on one side, and the cops and district attorneys on the other.  The book raises a lot of questions about the so-called “war on drugs” that has cost Americans billions of dollars, filled the prisons, and badly torn apart the impacted neighborhoods like South Central Los Angeles.
