Biographical and Professional Information

Frank’s violent childhood in South Philadelphia primed him to hate, while addiction made him easy prey for a small group of skinhead gang recruiters. By sixteen he had become one of the most notorious skinhead gang leaders on the East Coast, and by eighteen he was doing hard time.
