>My friend is walking on eggshells. He just got out early after a second 8-year stretch and is a
second-striker. He's my age, and knows any more fucking up and it will essentially be a life
sentence. He's already spent more years in than out, starting as a teen in Fred C Nellis in the
early 70s. That's when I met him, and we've been friends ever since, even though I went one way and
he went the other. By his version he didn't do anything wrong. I know he may have talked some
shit, I wasn't there. But these fuckers pulled the guns on him and my feeling is that they did that
because he's black and can get away with it.
Or because they know him?
>This is one reason we haven't hooked up since he got out. I am afraid of driving around with a
black parolee in my Lexus. It's been a long long time since I was told to get on the ground, and I
feel if we were driving in Fresno we might just get pulled over for nothing, nothing that could turn
into something once they run a make. As it is, I never get pulled over by myself. I'm white, and
obey the laws. Plus I have a bumper sticker that says "Support Your Local Police". I'm no fool.
