As a community gadfly, Mark now takes aim at the Daytona area powers that be, making friends and enemies along the way. The former officer shares his view from behind the badge to the latest horrific realities inflaming the Troubled Nation. Topics include a crime surge, naming rights, a dinner outing, mask innovations, top 10 lists, a benefit, a drill mishap, a delivery, Casey McAllister, shadow forces, the five families of Daytona, pain clinics, Rick Scott, a pivotal event, a youth group, Will Smith, Mardi Gras at the Circle Bar, Chris Rose, “Scarface,” cartel time, the Keys, procedure, riots, due process, a new generation, and much more.
