Wes Moore’s brother Tony asked Wes where he was getting the money from because Wes was buying expensive things. Wes told him he got it from Djing. Tony then said to Wes no you did’nt. Tony knew what Wes was doing because Tony was their at one point. Tony was also upset because Wes was his younger brother. Tony told Wes that I know im your brother but that doesnt mean be like me just because im like an idol to you. Wes still argued with him saying he got the money Djing. Tony got fed up with the lies and punched Wes in the face. Soon after Tony had punched Wes their mother got involved and she did not believe what tony was saying. The more Tony talked about it the more convinced she was…but all she wanted to do was surpress the thoughts away. Wes’s mother decided to check his room the next day while he was at school. She looked under his bed and found boxes. She then pulled them out from under the bed then looked inside. She was diapointed by what she had seen…she thought Wes was better than this. She dumped the drugs down the toilet then flushed them. When Wes had returned home from school he noticed the boxes on his bed and knew for sure that he got caught. At first Wes was scared and didn’t know what to say to his mother. Then he thought how am I going to pay back the money I owe for all of the drugs. He then called to his mother and yelled at her. His mom didn’t care that he had to owe so much money. She was really hurt Wes could have had his family arrested just because the drugs were in his house. He should have thought about the consiquences.
1.) I think tony is being hypocritical because tony was a drug dealer.
2.) Wes’s mother had every right to flush the drugs down the toilet, because Wes could have had his mom in jail and him and his brother would be put in placement or juvenile hall.
3.) The teacher had no right saying that about one of her students it was disrespectful
4.)The policeman were smart about handcuffing Wes but they most certainly should have contacted his mother because that’s his guardian and she has every right to know what her son has commited
