We was crossing the street I saw two police I was trying avoid them but they saw so they pull us side and said "Where are you're paper to be in North" I don't what to say because I don't have the paper's! Oh No if they find out I am toast, and I am going to be killed for my actions sold far away so I can't escape again.
