If I'm not home by eight,

a box pops up my PO's computer

and I'm f***ed.

Oh sh*t.

What did you do?

I brought home a gun.

My mom found it in my sock drawer and

freaked, so I got 15 months in juvie.

Wait, are you serious?

Your mom called the cops.


Your mom.



I gotta go.

Oh, no, don't be like that.

Come on.

Come on, I'm just playing with you.

I'm sure Mommy loves you very much.


The kids looks about...


Probably doesn't have

a care in the world.

I'm 14.

And f*** you.

I got cares.

So that thing only works at night?

I guess so.

So what are you doing tomorrow?


Try it now.


What's up?

New fish.

I give him two weeks.

Mm-mm, bullshit.

Three days commissary says

Jongo's gonna turn him out

quicker'n nothin'.

Oh, sh*t look at what we got here.

What's up, fresh meat?

She looks like a little puta to me.

I don't want trouble.

S'all right, Opie.

You'll be safe with us.

We got your back.

Leave it alone, JB.

Guillermo already got beef with you over

that beat down you gave his boy at intake.

Yo, Guillermo,

why you such a b*tch?

Holy sh*t,

it's f***in' Dennis the Menace.

You got something

to say, white boy?


Wanna make this about us, or what?


I'm just wondering why

a bigger mano like you

only has the heart

to f*** with the punks.

F*** you.

You disrespectful little b*tch.

You just bought that one.

Everybody get the f*** down!

F*** you!

Get down.

Get up, Burns.

You been here, what?

Three weeks?

And how many fights is that, convict?

'Cause honestly I've lost count.

You know, at first

I thought, I dunno,

maybe you're trying

to prove yourself.

Show the natives they shouldn't

mess with you and your baby face.

But now I think, maybe you're

just a guy that likes fighting.
