Clay Tumey conducted a series of bank robberies throughout 2006
before calling it quits soon after the birth of his son. Jett was
still a baby when his father went to jail. Growing up, visits with
Daddy meant buying Cool Ranch Doritos-or "blue chips" as he called
them because of their blue bag-from the vending machines and
snacking together. Jett didn't realize that the blue chip "store"
was actually prison. "The Blue Chip Store" details the life of a
class clown who rarely saw the need to submit to authority as a
child. And when those childhood patterns resurfaced as an adult,
they only presented bigger problems with greater consequences. For
most people, the distinction between prison and freedom is obvious.
For Clay, however, the journey to true freedom began with a set of
handcuffs. A true story about crime, prison, and second chances,
"The Blue Chip Store" is about finding freedom in captivity.
