My name is Jordan McCormick. I was born in the big St. Louie in a little, under funded hospital called Denakus. I weighed in at 11 pounds. I was the first child in my family to be born by a c-section, since my brother before me had been paralyzed from a malpractice, and suffered for two years before he died.
At this time I had one older brother, named Josh. We lived with our parents in an old rundown house in St. Louis. It was hard for a while having no money to live off of except my dads low wage job. I remember spending a lot of time at my grandmas as a child. She would always let me come to casinos wit her though. Once I remember actually being on a boat casino, and I almost fell overboard cause I thought I would fly. I was a really weird child.
After a while my grandma started to become really depressed, She missed her husband, who died when I was one, and that's when I believe her memory started to falter. By this time my parents didn't think it could get any worse for our family. Their son had died, my grandma was too depressed to help us, and we didn't have enough money to support ourselves. It was about this time we finally received the money that my parents sewed the doctors for, which was suppose to come to us when my brother Joel was still alive to help us pay medical bills to help him. The settlement was 200,000$. Which to them was a lot of money. I would have gone for 2 million.
When I was 3 years old we finally moved to this little subdivision in Imperial, MO. It was what I called ghetto suburbia. Kids walked around in "Mohawk Gangs", beating up other kids. Then there were the kids who liked to skateboard and get stoned, the Old School Skaters. Those were usually the kids I hung out with, me and my older brother would always try to skateboard. I didn't smoke weed though, they wouldn't let me cause they said I was too young. After some time in the Subs I met my hoamie David. He was a weird kid but he introduced me to his gang. A kid named Jeff, and these two kids named Scott and Eric. We were cool with each other for a couple years, and had some good times. One time I found a snake and made him my pet. But then the "Mohawk Gang" took my snake and chopped its head off. I tried killing one of them with a fence post and my friend Vince chased them down and beat them. There was also this other time We was walking through this hood when these kids playin football through the ball at me and my friend Vince took them all out with his bear hands. I help by taking this one kid with a buzz cut and bashing his head into the concrete. Yes, they were some good times. But then my gang betrayed me. A girl came between me and my gang boy Jeff. A girl that turned us into rivals. I was about 6 at this time, and this little Sleezy two timed me, with Jeff. And when we both found out we swore at each other and threatened each other. This was when the fight took place. All the neighborhood kids gathered around for the big fight. It was in his...
