"This is where I'm from. Basically, man, you get what you give, in the West. I'm from here and I never been no where else. To me, it's home. The people around me make the West home. We're friendly and chill. You see a lot of shit going on but all of that's for a reason. It's not even like how the news makes it. They make the West seem like it's Monsterville. When people come down here, we open our arms.
The West needs better housing, better cops, and better roads. You got the cops that patrol and ride pass and mean mug you, then back up and ask you what you're looking at. I almost got arrested for walking, yesterday. They're starting to fuck with people for no reason. I came from a place where police didn't have control over anything. We didn't need them because we looked out for each other. Now, you have people with these guns.
We need something like this because it's coming from us. People out there don't know what's really going on inside. They tell people what they think but we don't feel that. They need the information from the people on the inside. I hate how the news will stress shit and make it something that it really isn't." - Shawn & Jay, California
