WRITER  &  COLUMNIST  ALAN  BOCK
TO  SPEAK  ON  THREE-STRIKES  LAW
Santa Ana, California

Writer and editorial columnist Alan Bock will be the guest speaker at
the next public meeting of the Coalition Against Violent Crime, on
Wednesday, June 27, 2001, 6:30 PM, at the Southwest Senior Citizens
Center, 2201 West McFadden Avenue at Center Street in Santa Ana.

Alan Bock will speak on the costs of full prisons as a result of
California's Three-Strikes law.  He will also be available to autograph
copies of his new book, Waiting to Inhale.

Bock is the Senior Editorial Writer and essayist for the Orange County
Register where he has been writing for nearly three decades.  He wrote
the best-selling book Ambush at Ruby Ridge, a highly-respected account
of the Randy Weaver affair.

The Coalition Against Violent Crime is a coalition of organizations and
individuals dedicated to amending California's three-strikes law so that
it applies only to violent and serious crimes, instead of minor and
victimless crimes such as stealing a loaf of bread or a bottle of
shampoo.
