Yes, I will. Used a gift card.

A little background...

In my city there is a market. Within this market is a park. All the miscreants hang out there...

In my journeys around the city I met I. He's a dude with a big rear end dog who is consistently drunk in or around the park.

I met him through my brother and whenever I was in a certain area of the city, i'd stop in there to have a beer with him and his dog.

Once he was very physical with his girlfriend and I had to put him down.

----
jump forward to this year
----

I met R at I's GF's place.
He was destined to sleep on the floor there for months. I was in a good mood and offered him a place to stay at my place til he got himself together and on his feet (job/housing).

R has always been in with MCs and has jumped from one to another despite my taking him in and showing him how getting a job/a girl/a home can add stability to his life.

He took to it very well initially. He got a job, got a girl, and housing.

Cut to recently, we go to a concert together and end up back at I's after. He mentions to I how he was jumped and lost his rent money

I gives him 180 and says "pay me back 200".

After a while of R not paying(he refused to pay back someone who beats on his girlfriend), I goes to R's workplace...

I get a phonecall from R saying he's "got people comin to take care of I" etc..

I warn I and his GF and they don't take it seriously...


Cut to last Friday, R shows up at my door.

Hugs me, cries, tells me all kinds of things he's done, each of which warrants a life sentence
and reveals that he actually did have people come beat the poo poo out of I.

tl;dr

I took in an outlaw, tried to get him straight. He got so close before relapsing hardcore and is close to joining one of the 'worst' MCs.
He cried, he knows what he's doing is wrong.

I've done my best and if anyone's gone through this, advice is very welcome.

I want to save my friend R from doing really stupid poo poo. He is way younger than me and sees an outlaw lifestyle as glamorous.
Like I have said, he came and cried about things he'd done recently. I know he doesn't want his life to be where it is and I feel he's stuck and I'm stuck when it comes to trying to help. I've done all I can.

Or have I?

They're just a bunch of shapes. Don't read too deeply into it.

Ahhhh can you please substitute the initials with fake names? When you use "I" as an initial it is really hard to make sense of things.

You really couldn't give this dude any other initial than I? You couldn't call him Isaac or Isaiah or something? Other than the fact that this almost reads like a word problem, I don't know what to tell you. The dude sounds like he knows he hosed up, but why borrow the money if he wasn't going to pay it back on principle? I don't know how severe this dude's actions were but if you're omitting details in order to not be involved legally or incriminate this guy, you might think about staying out of it altogether. Maybe the guys taking care of I just had a nice lunch with him and sorted things out, who knows. I don't think there's much you can do aside from trying to convince this guy he can still turn his life around, since everything has already been done.

I don't get this, do you mean he was physically abusive and you had to beat him up? If so, good job.

Or that he was "getting physical" () and you stopped him? If this is the case: redefining cockblock.

I felt like I was having a stroke trying to read this till the TLDR part.

Advice: This sounds like a lot of drama just waiting to happen. I wouldn't get involved because I'd be constantly worried about the police coming to me when he's done something illegal and blaming me for not reporting things that have happened.

Anywho, I'm gonna go with a pretty simple answer of "Not your problem don't make it your problem." You're welcome, OP.

I don't have any advice, because I haven't gone through being a retard.





Here's a tip though: aiding a criminal on the run is a serious criminal offense itself. You're about to get robbed by a person that you can't turn in to the cops, because doing so reveals your own crimes. Tread carefully I guess.

Unicorncupcake

In America at least, doesn't knowing about a crime and not reporting it to the police make you an accessory after the fact? It's possible (probable) that by "helping" this guy and also having him tell you about all the criminal things he's doing, you are setting yourself up for actual factual legal repercussions when your dumb rear end friend gets caught for whatever dumb rear end poo poo he's pulling. Just back away from this guy slowly. Don't get involved, don't talk about him to other people, don't have a big blowout confrontation with him, just fade gently out of his life with as little fuss as possible.

If R from GF's place is B&E to A&B over 180 to I and wants to join an MC to avoid LWP then I say I and you need to GTFO before you wake up DOA. Also, consider SSRIs from a PsyD. hth.

Wait, so did you put the guy down, or your brother down, or the dog down? Did "I" meet his dog through your brother?? His girlfriend through your brother???

Either you're a troll or on drugs or insane, no one is going to give you any advice until you clean up your post and substitute in fake names instead of initials so it's actually readable.

Ok, I read the part where you suggested it, but still... They really call themselves that?? I always thought of "motorcycle clubs" as being the old fat guys who drive down American's highways waving American flags, support the troops, who don't want to be associated with bikers who peddle meth, start fights, etc... or whatever it is that bikers do.

That's why the bad boys are called 1%ers (not 5%), because they are not representative.
