Of the 48,000 living in this broken down, rat-infested neighborhood, two thirds are hispanic, one third is black and thirty-five percent are children.

He sits at home, has no friends at all, and drinks, smokes and watches television constantly to keep himself occupied and to dull his relationships with the rest of the world.
