Simon Stiles: I'm livin' in a new house now. You haven't been there. I'm up in the hills, near the Hollywood sign, and from my pool I can see South Central. I saw a murder up close when I was fifteen. Three guys shot a friend of ours 'bout ten times in the chest with 38s. You know it doesn't look like it does in the movies. Ask a homicide cop. It ain't poetry in motion, it's... everything inside comes outta every part of you. Anyway, we spent the next day planning how we were gonna kill these guys who did it. And when it was time, the leader of the guys I ran with, a guy named Donnell, turned to me and said, "You're not going." I said, "Like hell I'm not goin'." He said, "You're not going. You go, and I'll kill you first." Those guys are all doing consecutive life sentences, no chance of parole. They weren't charged as juveniles. Donnell is in a Federal Maximum Security Facility in Minnesota. Every month, I send him the only things I'm allowed to send him, cigarettes and stamps. I can see it from my pool, Matt. And if I don't reach in there and grab as many of them as I can carry, every day, then I deserve get sent right back to it.
