Wow guys! So I get back from the hospital and I found the walls of my back yard all tagged up!
I made a police report, my dad gets home, flips out in front of the cops and starts to fight me. Reason for that is because my brothers a gang- member and my perents do everything they can to protect him. I dont fcken know why
So after the cops leave, my dad kicks me and my son out. WTF?!? What kind of father does that! He prefers to kick out his hard working son then that mther****** gangbanging stoner biitch? So not cool man. even the cop told him that tagging like that, turns to bad stuff later. To dont be surprised when theirs a shooting later. But son of a bitch man!!!!
now I gotta find a nice hotel atleast for tonight.

Screw that man. Start a new life with your son someplace else.

Hope things settle down for you soon, both health-wise, and family-wise.

Jorge, so sorry to hear man! I think your dad just overreacted and quickly put the blame on you. Hope he apologizes or at least realizes it has nothing to do with you. Keep your head up man!

I'd let you stay at my place if you were closer if that helps man. Sounds like a horrible situation. There's no reason why he should have ever done that.

Hope everything turns out ok for you.

He probably had too many crazy thoughts going through his head when he found out . Be respectful and keep your cool man, be the better man (even if it has to be between you and your dad). Don't completely ruin your relationship with him, I know lots of kids around here that lose all contact with their old man and its just sad imo.

Do what Sama said, gotta be the bigger man here. Don't let your emotions take control and deal with it after things settled down.

Jorge, that's horrible man. My guess is internally he's tried not to come to terms with the reality of your brother's situation. He's taking it out on you as you're almost pushing him into realizing it.

Anyway, that's effed up. I'm sorry to hear. On the bright side, do you really want your son growing up around that kind of influence? Get him away from the gang influences and let him grow up without having to see that first hand. Best of luck in finding something ASAP for cheap - I know it's stressful but you'll do well!

thanks man. Yeah, I dont want my son seeing that kind of stuff.... I freaking hate gangsters man! ever since I got stabbed twice, I freaking hate them with a passion.
I remember in middle school all those kids going for all that tagging and turf nonsense. Me, I was smart to stay away from that **** and do my own thing.

Looks like a huge improvement. Nice
