now its not that strange to see so many youth standing outside a persons house, apparently with guys its the 'in thing' to do, sitting inside the house in the living room is not 'cool' standing outside and just being in peoples way is 'cool', you can get up to 10 lads just sat on the wall or loitering around and all they seem to do is nod to each other, they don't even have a conversation, nod nod nod, the occasional cough will be heard from the weed that is being smoked and if your lucky you may just see a hint of face if the hood decides to get unstuck.
ok you might think me harsh in my words but seriously i always think what is the point, have they nothing better to do? sure enough they don't harm anyone, well they tend to ignore me but its irks me, the other day i was walking back from some place or other and one of the guys decides to throw a glass bottle across the road that hits the pavement and smashes into a thousand little pieces!!!
now I'm the type i wont shut up, the words will leave my mouth before i even have time to ponder over them, so i asked him 'so whats the point of that' to which he replied 'what?' so i asked him again 'whats the point of throwing that bottle?'.
the cheeky dude then laughs, shrugs and says 'i was trying to get it into the bin across the road' to which i replied ' well if you haven't noticed some of us live on this road and we don't take to throwing things on the road to kindly' to which he got up and said 'yeh well i live here as well your not the only one who does' to which i said' and do you see us throwing things the way monkeys do in a zoo?'
by then my little brother was dragging me away and the guy didn't say anything but stare.
well yesterday apparently what happened as my middle bro tells me is that the dude next door has certain issues with the wrong people, and he must have annoyed some one because whilst he was 'standing' outside his house, a certain young gentleman approached him and took out a gun as a threat towards him.
now this young gentleman did not expect that our neighbours older brother to be behind him, what ended up happening was the gun was knocked out of his hand and he was grabbed and taken into our neighbours house and held down, the police where contacted and so was every youth in the area, hence the welcoming committee when i arrived.
within moments of myself arriving home, the police also made an appearance, around 40 officer if not more surrounded the street, the whole streets was blocked, police cars, vans, dogs you name it where there, it was like a scene from the movies.
my dad tried to leave the house to get something from the car and a police officer told him to get back in.
how crazy was yesterday? I'm starting to realise why Manchester's second name is 'gunchester' apparently a youth can buy a gun cheaper than an ipod, crazy!!! a persons life is worthless, recently a little 12 year old girl was shot in her head in her own home and later died in hospital, so sad.
