Angry reception greets book reading.


Redcardlibrarian writes "Multnomah County's chief deputy district attorney and the head of a victim's rights group angrily accused author Sebastian Junger of inaccuracies and exploitation during a reading last week.

Norm Frink, the chief deputy district attorney, told Junger that "the distortions you are pedaling are not true." Steve Doell, the president of Crime Victims United, called Junger's book "A Death in Belmont" "so inaccurate and misleading" -- before Doell was escorted from the First Unitarian Church by Powell's employees. Frink and Doell raised their voices to Junger and appeared to startle a crowd of about 50 people that had gathered at the church to listen to Junger, the author of "The Perfect Storm."

I knew Frink back in the early 1990's. He is a good guy.
