Old Scout, What would I have done, you or most other people. If it was your friend and it was an unfortunate accident, I or you, or just about anyone would have been at the hospital, sitting in the hall, eating cafeteria food instead of eating at the ranch. He stayed in hiding there until the next morning. He even told the cops to make an appointment for the next morning. Wow, you or I would have been picked up, questioned and made to blow in a breathalizer right away.
Imagine this: One of the brothers in the ghetto shoots another brother. The cops come and say, "Where's Jamal"Another brother tells them, "He's busy now, come back in the morning."
