I remember one night talking to one kid; I told him that he was very close to going to prison if he didn’t leave the drugs alone. He assured me that he would straighten up. A few months went by and I saw his mother. I asked her how he was doing. She told me that after I talked to him that night he came to her and said he was done with selling drugs and stealing. She told me that he came to the Police Station one day when I was off to tell me how good he was doing. A month later he was arrested for stealing a car and later sentenced to prison. I thought to myself how different things could have been if I would’ve been there for the young man so he could show me how good he was doing. What would’ve have happened if he had more guidance in his life other than an overworked mother raising four kids by herself.
