  • Glasgow’s profile on the Canadian Inmates Connect Inc. website reads like a rap song: “I ain’t no bi*ch, I’d never be a snitch. I got a plan to find a Shorty and the ambition to be rich. Confident, not cocky, neat ‘n’ [tidy], never sloppy. With a real woman in my corner, nothing could ever stop me.”
