”There are a lot of tourists that come into Waikiki and there’s a lot of money. A lot of foreign money that comes in, and we were part of a theft ring that would target those groups. We would target the money, we would target the high-end clothes and we would target the jewelry – turn around and sell it, best we could.”
”But, I still found time to go to the Boys Club every afternoon to hit the speed bag, hit the heavy bag, hit the iron. I was building my body because again, it’s that eviction mentality. But, I would still (expletive) around, get in trouble and get arrested. I got arrested eight or nine times I think by the time I was 17.” – AZCentral
