Seems like that cloud has been over a bunch of us lately. There's only one way to go, I refuse to go down. I noticed I dodged a major bullet here in my hometown recently after reading the local newspaper tonight. I still have my sixth sense. Another friend of mine won't be coming back, unless he gets a good attorney that donated money to our judges campaign.
I pulled up to this kids house 5 or 6 days ago and noticed a male and a female neighbor in their early 20's across the street that had their eye on me and they both had the same stupid ass smirk, like they knew something that I didn't. Just as I got out of the car, what appeared to be the mother in the household came out of the house with the look on her face that said "what, more action over there?" All eyes were on me. The male immediately picks up his cell phone and makes a call, while the 3 of them continue to stare. I decided to casually leave the scene and not return because I felt that the house was being watched and that the local LEO had prlly told the neighbors to keep tabs on the house, based on their reaction to my presence.
I came home and told my wife about the neighbors and told her of my suspicions that this kid was going down soon. He got raided by county on March 29th and charged with 2 felony counts of possession, and a felony count of resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony. I went to high school with him and I just sent him some business, since his line of work is directly related to mine, and we hooked back up. He invited me over to his house while we were working and we traded some music.
Since I have a family and a business to run, I can't just go and hang out at friend's houses all of the time at random anymore. I tried to go by twice after that, and neither time he would answer. I'm pretty sure he was cooking and was paranoid about my presence since I don't fit the profile anymore and he doesn't know my background, so he didn't answer the door. That last time was when I noticed the overly excited neighbors and decided not to go back there. I didn't have time to warn him, and knew better than to give him a call on his cell. It was too late any way.
His mom and grandmother are two of my main competitors and I am actually pretty close with them. Fucking sucks to see him go down. I know he's shitting himself in a cell right now and hating life. He was actually a good kid, just got too deep into the game for a small town. We have wanted to hang out together and party for about a year now, and since both of our business's are in competition we were both kind of leery of each other, but recently starting to get closer again, like we were back in high school. I'm glad I trusted my instincts on this one, and I wasn't over there when it went down, but I also feel bad for him and his family right now.
