For Chapter 51: Leaders, we asked Skam Dust to interview his childhood friend who went a different path from the rest of the kids in the neighborhood—he became a member of NYC’s finest. To protect his identity for this interview we’ll call him “Frankie.” Frankie became a narcotics detective, and a highly decorated one at that. Only ten years on the job and he’s now retired with honors, with the certificates and the stories to prove he earned it.
