London Gangland Enforcer: Marvin Herbert | True Crime Podcast 128

Gangland and cartel enforcer Marvin Herbert renounced his criminal lifestyle after he was shot multiple times by a member of a British drugs gang in a daylight attack in Marbella. He was shot in his eye, groin, arm and leg and was told by doctors that he would never walk again.

“At that specific moment in my life I realised that my existence had been pointless and meaningless. I decided that because I was fortunate to be kept alive, I would have to change dramatically. Not just for myself but for my kids, to guarantee that they had me in their lives for years to come.”

Marvin now works with schools and young people, sharing his story to inspire his students to think twice before going down the road that he did.

Shaun is a speaker, author and activist based in London, who is banned from America for life. As an inmate in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail, he used a tiny pencil sharpened on a cell door to write the first prison blog, Jon’s Jail Journal.

His writing, smuggled out of the jail with the highest rate of death in America, turned the international media spotlight on the conditions: dead rats in the food, cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, murders by guards and gang members.
