Lately at work there have been issues with some of our guys having conflicting gang affiliations. I could go on for days about this, and I may post my thoughts on youth, gangs, etc. The story I am about to post has not been edited for grammar, or content. It was written by one of my residents, and there are so many things to be said through this writing. I am going to put everything exactly like he put it so you can see the world through his eyes. The story is fiction, and the names don’t reflect anyone, but the basis of the story is rooted in his own life.

Once upon a time there was two brothers in the projects. They had no father figure in there life. They got into gangs when there father got life in prison for murder. Once he got lock up the brothers just fell apart. There grades started falling and Mike dropped out. He joined the gang, so Kebo he younger brother followed his older brother footsteps.
This is how it all started in Atlanta, Georgia. First day the summer started Mike and his homeboy Tevin said they want to make some fast money to help there mom pay the bills. So Tevin told Mike that he had a connection for some crack. They went to the trap and bought 2 kilos. When they got there Scooby said what are you going to do with it. Mike said he was going to sell it. Later on that day Mike called Tevin and told him that they had a gang meeting at the trap house. Once the meeting was over Kebo, Tevin, and Mike went to post on the block to sell them kilos. The first salesperson is Timmy a.k.a. crack monster.
The first move they made was to crack head Timmy. They sold him a fifty, thats when the neighborhood officer Joe showed up. When Kebo, Mike, Tevin and Timmy saw Joe they all ran off the block. When Jose saw Timmy, Joe chased Timmy and he fell and his tooth fell out. So Kebo and Mike went home to lay low. While they were laying low their mom said you guys need to just go back to school and do the right thing. So they just went upstairs and started talking to each other about getting some heat. The next day Kebo and Mike went to the block to find some heat. When they found the heat the gunsaler was like “I got a .357 mag.” So the bought three 45’s.
When they got the heat, later on that day the called Tevin and told him to meet them at the trap. When Tevin got there, Kebo gave Tevin his .45. From there they started talking about robbing an drug dealer. the drug dealer was working for Scooby, the one they got the crack form.
So the went to go find the drug dealer that had all the money and drugs. The word was that he be on Nineth Street. That’s when Mike, Kebo, and Tevin went to Nineth Street and they saw him sitting on the block waiting on a lick to come threw. So they were thinking hit the dealer and the lick. Five minutes later the lick came, so Mike took off towards the dealer with the 45. Then he put the 45 in the dealer face. That’s when Kebo and Tevin stuck up the lick and told him to flip his pocket. Mike on the other hand smacked the dealer with the tool. So that’s when Mike ran his pockets and got the stash. Kebo and Tevin got the lick and the got about 2,000.00
Once they got the money, they all ran to the trap to count the money. The walked in and Mike and Tevin big homie was in there waiting on Mike. So his big homie told Mike and Tevin to go shoot at the crips. Mike told Kebo to give his gun to him, and go lay low at his girl house. So Mike and Tevin drove their big homie car to go to the crip hood. They sat around the block, until the sun went down. When the sun went down they put on ski-masks and red flags. They rolled down the window and rod around the corner and spotted them. So they pulled out the .45 and started shooting at them, Mike hit two of the crips in the leg and the other in the neck. Tevin hit the O.G. in the stomach. When they hith thime the drove off and went to the trap to drop the car off. They went into the trap that night and took the masks off.
They told the big homie they had got them. When the finished talking, Mike called Kebo to meet him at home. So they chilled at home for the rest of the night. They sat around the table in there room and counted the money, they had got. When the time went by they fell to sleep. They next morning they woke up and cut on the T.V., that stuff was on. They told there mom they were leaving to go to the trap for a couple of days.
So the drove to the trap to talk to the O.G. They went in and dapped up the O.G., he said “that’s what’s poppin. They had females in the trap counting money.

The police went upnder investigation to see who kille dthe tree dudes that got hit in a drive-yb. The police went to ask questions, but when they finished, all they got was nicknames. So through all the names, the finally got Mike and Tevin name.

They the went on the run and laid low, so they wouldn’t get caught. They the sun went down and they went to sleep. In the middle of the night the swat team came in. When they came in Mike was in one room with his girl. The O.G. was in another room. Tevin was in the kitchen eating. So the swat team told them to get on the ground, they got on the ground with no problems at all. But thing about is that the O.G. got away. They took Mike and Tevin to the county jail for holding. The next Mike called Kebo to bail him out, his bail was 150,000.00. So Kebo went to go get the money so he bailed him out and had to go back the next day.
