#51: Casey Diaz of Shot Caller ~ From Los Angeles Gangs to Prison to Jesus Christ
The Ann & Phelim Scoop
The story of Casey Diaz will shake you to your core. Casey is a former Los Angeles gang member who was sent to one of the most dangerous jails in the country to serve out his sentence. He was a “shot caller” which is a high ranking gang member that is considered one of the most dangerous inmates. Casey’s life was changed when he discovered the power of Christ in prison and his story is an inspiration. He’s our guest on this week’s Ann & Phelim Scoop and you will be moved by his incredible story. While behind bars, Casey spent the first few years in solitary confinement. There, he had an incredible experience that led him towards Christianity. We don’t want to spoil the tale, so tune into the podcast and read Casey’s book to hear it. Casey is also involved in turning his life story into a film. He received an offer from a big Hollywood studio in the past, but declined because he knew that Hollywood leftists wouldn’t be inclined to include his story of faith in the film. Casey has told his story in full detail in his powerful memoir The Shot Caller. We cannot recommend this book enough! He also hosts his own podcast The Shot Caller podcast which tells the stories of redemption through Christ. Please give it a listen!

Candid Conversations: Casey Diaz –from Maximum Prison to Pulpit
Candid Conversations with Charles Hsuan from Flying Kite
The following information is summarised from caseydiaz.net Casey Diaz was introduced to gang culture at the age of 11. As part of an initiation into his gang, during a violent attack on a rival gang member, the leader handed Casey a screwdriver and said, “Now it’s your turn”. That was the first time Casey took part in a stabbing – many more would take place for years to come. He was later sentenced to nearly 13 years in prison for second-degree murder, along with 52 counts of armed robbery. During his imprisonment, Casey became a shot caller. Shot callers have an elevated rank in the gang world; not only are they the ones who command respect, but they are power brokers inside prison walls as they determine who gets hurt or killed and who doesn’t. While Casey was in prison, one day he heard the guards come by his cell with an announcement, “Church service. Any inmate wanting to go, stand by your gate.” Casey heard an older woman say, “Is there someone in that cell?” She sounded Southern and spoke with a syrupy drawl. “Yes, ma’am, but you don’t want to deal with Diaz,” a guard said. “You’re wasting your time.” “Well, Jesus came for him, too,” he heard her say. And what she shared with Casey would change his life forever.
