The author&rsquo s doppelgä nger had a similarly difficult early childhood, moving around frequently with a mother just trying her best to keep her children safe. Wes&rsquo s only real role model was his older brother Tony, but he gave into the pressures of the street, dealing drugs at the age of ten. Wes never really had a strong sense of purpose or ambition and so never took control of his life. He became a father very was a high school dropout, and had his share of prison time before his final sentence.

From a . perspective I don 8767 t know if it was the greatest thing for Baltimore, but it forced Baltimorians to have a conversation among ourselves about the city we want to be.
