      It would be redundant for the headline to read “Paterson man shot in Carroll Street shooting.”

    How desperate do you have to be to hang on the street slinging dope when the odds of getting shot/killed are so high?

      Some of those guys are extremely desperate. Most made enough to transition into something legally…they just love the prestige and the thrills of action. Doesn’t makes sense either way.

        Just so. My best contact from a good family from the Towers and a very smart fellow, got rouped into the game as a teen. He honed his skills, saved his profits and eventually bought a house. The game is different now.
