"Vince was 16 needed the kidney surgery right away, but his Mom and Benny would lose the house. The house Mom had paid for working two backbreaking jobs for so many years. Benny, his little brother, always so good natured because of a chromosomal aberration. He had to get picked up by the cops, but for something that would not make his Mom ashamed. Something he could explain to Benny when he got out. A victimless crime. Pot. In the parking lot. Where the cops could see. His hands shook as he tried to break up the weed in the most obvious way possible. Hoping when the cops came they would not shoot him. Hoping he would not die on the floor in the county lock up before he got a medical referral. It was a risk he had to take. For Mom. For Benny."
