Born in Regina Saskatchewan in June 1976 Danny Wolfe was not uite in his teens when he and his brother Richard founded the Indian Posse From a core group of 7 over the years it catapulted to gangland fame There was nothing they wouldn't do to satisfy their sense of entitlement once it got rolling There's pride in the outlawspride in fighting what they see asthe enemy p121Well researched an undercurrent of admiration marks these pages and the journalistic style is warmed by a sense that JF was accepted by these people He never condescends but allows the story to unfold at its own pace even though we already know it off by heart The mentality in policing is terribleEnforce the law and feed the failing criminal justice system p159The tendency when faced with overwhelming injustice colonialism residential schools poverty racism and the fallout from these is basically the same as when faced with any other predator fight flight or freeze Danny Wolfe was bright and resourceful How he used these gifts was a matter of survivalIt was a matter of survival that he and his brother so often left to fend for themselves turned to crime When they werent frozen avoiding detection they were fleeing the law or fighting to assert their dignity His political awakening came later after he had the chance to study the teachings of his people and reconnect with his spiritual nature His tragic end as much as he himself foretold it deprived us of one who had much to contribute yet What could i do but be a menace p159
