summary Norco 80 Peter Houlahan Ü 6 read & download free read Norco 80 106 A true crime account of one of the most violent bank heists in US history Norco ’80 tells the story of how five heavily armed young men led by an apocalyptic born again Christian attempted a bank robbery that turned into one of the most violent criminal events in US history forever changing the face of American law enforcement Part action thriller and part courtroom drama Norco ’80 transports the reader back t. Riverside to all Norco units 211 in progress at the Security Pacific Bank at Fourth and Hamner the RCSO dispatcher on page 73 211 is California penal andor police radio code for armed robberyAn absolutely outstanding and suspenseful true crime book meticulously chronicling the May 1980 bank robbery pursuit shoot out in Southern California not in Los Angeles but farther east in a desert and mountain area known as The Inland Empire that pitted five heavily and better armed thieves against a small and diverse group of responding law enforcement personnel county sheriff s deputies city police officers and highway patrolmen from various agencies in a particularly violent and nightmarish encounter It reads like it s right out of a Hollywood script but it was the real dealThis is author Houlahan s first book and it is one hell of a strong debut Norco 80 is a confident well researched detailing of the personalities involved the suspects the police the lawyers on both sides the actual incident and the occasionally absurd trial aftermath Drawing on many interviews taped radio transmissions see above investigatory reports and court transcripts Houlahan weaves everything together into an absorbing narrative However I don t want to necessarily make it sound like a fun mindless action movie this was a retelling of a particularly dark day for the involved law enforcement and bystanders involving a tragic line of duty death and also countless injuries But out of said tragedy came a better understanding response for dealing with PTSD among other things

summary Norco 80 Peter Houlahan Ü 6 read & download free read Norco 80 106 O the Southern California of the 1970s an era of predatory evangelical gurus doomsday predictions megachurches and soaring crime rates with the threat of nuclear obliteration looming over it all A group of landscapers transforms into a murderous gang of bank robbers armed to the teeth with military grade weapons Their desperate getaway turned the surrounding towns into war zones When it was over three were dead an. AstoundingStaggeringMind blowing EyeopeningThese are just some of the reactions I experienced after reading Peter Houlahan s brilliant true crime book NORCO 80 Houlahan spent over four years researching documents and interviewing people who were involved with one of the most violent and insane bank robbery attempts in American history He amazingly pulled together accounts and testimonies from dozens and dozens of law enforcement personnel case lawyers and family members in his exhaustive uest to piece together this fascinating account that reads stranger than fiction George Wayne Smith was an honorably discharged soldier living in Riverside county in southern California He became obsessed with the religious prophecies of Revelation as well as apocalyptic visions of the doomsday scenario he perceived the world to be headed toward He had been working for a landscaping company when he met another young man named Chris Harven In many ways Harven was the opposite of Smith a stoner a slacker and a troublemaker who was actually dishonorably discharged after a brief stint in the military But the two men shared common survivalist religious and apocalyptic beliefs and became friends and roommates Living in a house in Mira Loma together both had failed marriages they even dug their own bomb shelter in the back yard Eventually they were out of work and low on money Still the pair s goal was to be able to buy a mountain cabin in Utah or Colorado and fortify it for family members and themselves so all would be safely together and survive the impending Armageddon Smith and Harven also loved firearms and began buying all sorts of guns both pistols and high caliber assault rifles Apparently they used the last of their money to arm themselves and three other accomplices whom they convinced to help them rob a bank in the nearby town of Norco Chris s brother Russ and brothers Manny and Billy Delgado rounded out the gang which would later be infamously known as the Norco 5 So on May 9th 1980 this crew of first time criminals made their way to Norco armed to the teeth with firepower than any law enforcement agency in the country possessed Their mission was to steal enough money on a big one time score so George Smith and Chris Harven would be able to establish their survivalist utopia somewhere in the mountains of the West Russ Manny and Billy would be given their cuts of the take as well The events unfolded on a Friday afternoon and are so chaotic and crazy it s hard to go into great detail without spoilers and so on Suffice it to say that in the end over two dozen cop cars were shot to hell hundreds of rounds of ammunition were fired at law enforcement and three people were dead Some members of the Norco 5 were captured and it took 20 months before they would stand trial The trial itself would not conclude until over two and a half years from the initial crime date Procedures and events at the trial were like a 3 ring circus at times and read like something out of a Hollywood film Now in the 21st century where horrific mass public shootings have become all too tragically freuent the Norco bank robbery kind of stands out as a harbinger of the future as far as terrorist type acts are concerned Peter Houlahan has indeed pieced together an important part of history coupled with insight and fast paced story telling NORCO 80 is a completely true account as well as a flat out thrill ride

summary Norco 80 Peter Houlahan Ü 6 read & download free read Norco 80 106 D close to twenty wounded; a police helicopter was forced down from the sky and thirty two police vehicles were destroyed by thousands of rounds of ammo The resulting trials shook the community to the core raising many issues that continue to plague society today from racism and the epidemic of post traumatic stress disorder within law enforcement to religious extremism and the militarization of local police force. The blame begins with the huge eruption of Mount St Helens George Wayne Smith age 29 and Chris Haven age 27 were convinced that the eruption announced the coming rapture as predicted in the Book of Revelations Their apostolic faith convinced them that the end was near and that they needed to move to the mountains in order to survive the coming chaos Both of them were ex military and stockpiled a huge supply of weapons homemade grenades and ammunition to prepare for the coming apocalypse One thing they lacked money for the moveSo these two guys convinced their friends Belisaro and Manuel Delgado and Chris brother Russell to join them in robbing the Security Pacific Bank Unfortunately an employee from the bank across the street saw the masked men entering the bank and uickly called police What ensues is Fargo esue as events flew out of control Total chaos ensued with the five robbers spraying hundreds of rounds of ammunition at the responding police in an area full of civilians The miracle is that there were not deaths and casualties But there were still plenty two of the perpetrators and one Sheriff s deputy were killed another 9 wounded over 30 police cars were damaged and even one helicopter was downedThe bank robbers were forced to steal a second truck when their first one was damaged They were able to escape Riverside County and entered San Bernardino County with multiple police officers from multiple jurisdictions in hot pursuit Eventually they reached the mountains and proceeded on foot They were caught the next dayThe second part of the book focuses on the trial for the three remaining robbers It was not your usual criminal trial The Defense Attorneys presented numerous audacious theories and verbally fought with the presiding judge And then there was the case of the Defenses investigator falling in love with George Wayne Smith I m sure that will turn out well NotRecommend this true crime tale that defies believability
