Murderers, Mafia Hitmen and US Prisons by Shaun Attwood
Liverpool45 Hardman Street, Ground Floor Studio, L1 9AS
Doors Open: 18:00 | Show: 19:00 | Ends: 21:00

As a Brit incarcerated in Arizona’s highest-security prisons including supermax, Shaun Attwood lived for 6 years in the company of killers, ranging from Mafia mass murderers to Aryan Brotherhood prison gang members. 

Join Shaun to hear his most gruesome stories, ranging from neo-Nazi psychos who killed just to earn gang tattoos, to Mafia hit men who whacked their rivals, such as Two Tonys, a mass murderer who left a trail of corpses from Tucson to Alaska but claimed they “all had it coming.” Two Tonys protected Shaun and told him his life story.

Shaun will introduce you to Slingblade, a sumo-sized Vietnam vet he befriended, who was serving life for killing his father-in- law during a flashback, and to whom the other prisoners gave a wide berth. He tells the story of Bonzai, the most dangerous prisoner in Arizona,
for whom the warden ordered built a special cell that included a shower and had its door permanently welded shut.

You’ll hear how Shaun came under threat while running a multi-million-dollar Ecstasy ring from Mafia hit man Sammy the Bull Gravano, the underboss of the Gambino crime family, who killed 19 people. You’ll learn how he earned the protection of the New Mexican Mafia, the most powerful criminal organisation in Arizona.

Living with a wide variety of killers gave Shaun a unique understanding of their psychology. Shaun is a best-selling true-crime author who does over 100 talks a year and has performed two Ted talks.

Please be aware that this talk is not for the faint hearted. Shaun will be showing actual video footage of gang members and even guards murdering prisoners in the jail. Due to the nature of this talk it is strictly an 18+ event.
