Just downloaded Blue Rage, Black Redemption a few days ago. First e book i've ever bought.

Tookie wrote about him doing nightly raids on the Pirus in Compton in the mid 70s and the Pirus being masters of the sneak attack.
Was it really common to have shootouts in the 70s or was Tookie exaggerating ?
