EC: Were you scared to go into such seedy neighborhoods?
BL: The only time I was scared is when I got hit and threatened by a drug informant, Tiffany. Overall the people in the neighborhood never intimidated us. Actually, the drug dealers looked after us. As we told in the book, the one drug dealer told me, ‘you know I own this block.’ I responded, ‘well that means you have my back.’ He chuckled but he kept his word. For us it was just part of the job. Word spread fast as to who we were and why we were there. It seemed they never felt threatened by us.
Thanks for the review and Q&A, crimespree!
