Personal Quotes (1)

[responding to a leading question about racism] That day that I shot myself, the police, I was the only person in the house, the police came through there, knocked the doors down, I was on the floor. They jumped over, they hopped over me, looking for the drugs and looking for this and that. There was a white police that came, ran in and stopped and said 'What the fuck are y'all doing? Do y'all not see this baby on the floor?' And they said, 'We called the ambulance, the ambulance'. He said 'Ambulance? He has a HOLE in his chest!' He picked me up, brought me to the hospital himself. He was white.
