My teen years were the time when I needed my dad the most. I know he would have gotten me off the street and away from these illegal activities. But dad was gone, and it was open season on ripping people off, using drugs, and hanging out with the corrupt underbelly of humanity...”
“Vatche pulled a sawed-off shotgun from under his trench coat and made sure we saw it. 'We’re gonna cruise Hollywood Boulevard,' he said emphatically, 'Their gang killed two of ours, so we’re going to kill four of theirs...'"
