Due to the way they handle the situation after, a forgivable mistake, led to not only riots, but the destruction of this man’s life. After so many harassing calls and deaths threats, he moved communities before switching states. He cannot get a job as a cop due to his liability, and rarely spends times outside his house.

As very good friends, and previous adventure partners, the two of them try to create a gang, the “Tom Sawyer Gang.” On page 12, though, “We played robber now and then for about a month, and then I resigned.

Often, adults will make decisions for a child, but sometimes the results do not help the child and only begin to hurt them.…

    While I was reviewing the book I looked up some comments from other readers and came across a few that stated they lived in the area surrounding Robert Taylor and mentioned that they avoided this area because of the deviance and gang activity. They also mentioned that this book had a lot of good lessons to be learned from this particular area as well as others like it. This proves that societal groups outside of one another avoid each other mainly because they don 't understand one another. The rest of society avoids these groups because of the illegal activities they 're involved in, the violence, and the deviance. The message these kinds of group give off to other groups of society keep people at a distance because of the negative image they portray.…

I only wish that people could see the influence they have on others, I never really saw the influence I had on my younger cousins until they were older, be it I really had to look but I could see things that I did and that I had taught them believing they would never actually retain any of it. Really though if you treat others the same way you want to be treated then you can have a positive influence on who they become and who you become as…

While it was easy to find a reason to arrest people it was another story when it came to actually keeping them in jail. Not only was it a problem to keep them in jail but it was a problem once they got back out of jail because all those drug dealers that had been arrested they would just come back and start using again or they would start to sell again. That short coming would be the short coming that they were not learning from the things that they needed to learn from while they were in a jail. These drawbacks made it really hard for the officers to feel like they were making a difference because every time they arrested someone and they got back out they became a little smarter to where they knew how to avoid getting caught.…
