Sep 12, 2018

From San Quentin Radio:

Chanthon Bun is one of the incarcerated men at San Quentin who escaped the regime of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia as a child. He shares his story with one of the reporters at San Quentin Radio.

"I always seen myself as a survivor, and it was surviving through any means; robbing, stealing killing. It was a point of survival, it led to the way I lived my life, it led to my crime. It led to my belief system, the way I thought, the way I interact with humans."
