“PUT THE MONEY ON THE COUNTER”
The bank robber known on his wanted posters as the Skinny Bandit, a street kid from the south side of the river in San Diego known as Otay—a rough Hispanic neighborhood, grew up running game from petty shoplifting to grand theft auto and brazenly robbing banks.
This is the inside story of Richard Stanley’s neighborhood struggle with gangs and chronicles his life and crimes (and redemption). A whiter-than-cocaine kid, Stanley did the crimes and did the time.
Today, he’s up on game as a legit entrepreneur and shares a vital message: people do change.

This book was somewhat different for me. It was written by a young man who for lack of Taco Bell money, decided to go out with a couple of friends and just out of the blue rob a bank. Now I didn’t take this too seriously at first, thinking it was just talking. But as the chapter went on, it soon became clear that the guy was serious because they were soon divvying up the ill-gotten gains, and then a celebration was In order. After splitting the haul and spending the money, they felt that they needed to start planning another robbery right away to keep some form of money coming in. The book tells how he goes from being a busted bank robber to a trader in bitcoin. A fascinating true crime story.
An advance digital copy was provided by NetGalley and authors Richard Stanley & Thomas A. Reppett for my honest review.
