This book Environmental Trap is a testimony of my experiences that I lived while growing up in the streets, on the south side of Chicago. I witnessed first-hand, through sight and interaction with people; whose lives became entangled in different types of lifestyles, as a means of survival.


I learned ways of making a living, by exploiting myself, as well as others; in order to maintain and thrive in this environment. I was able to cover myself by involving and befriending people in the environment, in my life. Once I established a bond with these powerful people: I was considered by them as almost a family member, whom they would not allow anyone to harm or misuse (example: head gang members, head Mafia leaders in Chicago, aldermen, judges, and lawyers also befriended me).


In my book, I want to reveal the entrapment that I experienced as a young boy, naive, who became prey to elderly street women. They changed my whole life around. All of a sudden, I had everything that I needed and I was introduced to the vicious street life. Finding myself entrapped in a lifestyle that was gave me satisfaction, as well as a sense of security.


One of the main reasons that I've written this book is to show young girls and boys some of the types of holes that they can fall into in the streets. When they run away from home it's not easy. I want to reveal to them that it is dangerous and horrible when you don't have the experience to survive on your own and you have to depend on others, who may cause you to lose your life.
