Books You Should Be Reading Number 22 Of A Bunch

Purple Heart, by Ta’afuli Andrew Fiu

The negative perceptions of policemen stick in the mind of an Island kid, particularly when you’re dawn-raided while watching Spot On. Especially when you have a European presenter on TV talking about how you can ask a policeman for help any time and then they show you a picture of the same bastards standing in your (our) house. I can tell you they weren’t smiling like the two cops on Spot On. ‘Need help? Ask a policeman,’ I think the presenter said.

I looked from the TV to the police in the house and back to the TV again and thought, we’ll take our chances, thanks.
