WHERE ARE THEY NOW - Jason O'Toole/Life's Blood

I've made my career in law enforcement. I am currently an investigator for the Office of Secretary of State in Atlanta, Georgia. One of my main responsibilities is investigating fraud and inaccuracy in elections. Our cases are diverse and one day I might be looking for someone who voted one time too many, the next day I might be interviewing a nurse who stole drugs from her job. I am also proud of the work we do with ICE and local police agenices who are fighting human trafficking and prostitution in their communities.

I'm married and raising two kids who also love music. I'm sure they'll be sharing their gifts with the world in a few years. In the meantime, I've formed a band called MyRifle with Lew and Hobi from Our Gang, and Joe from Garden Variety. Our first release will be an EP on Freddy Alva's legendary Wardance label. Sean Taggart did our artwork, and it's old school hardcore through-and-through.
