1: Lose the goon haircut.
2. Lose the wraparound goon sunglasses.
3. When the object of your interest happens to turn a corner and unexpectedly drives toward you, twenty yards away, don’t speed up as you walk across the street. No one hurries anywhere in this town unless they’re trying not to get made.
4. When the object of your interest hangs his arm out the window and gives a big ol’ wave at you, wave back. Everyone waves back in this town, unless they’re trying not to get made.
Any experienced law enforcement professional will attest that people usually “make” themselves by not responding properly during an unplanned encounter with the object of their interest.
And smile next time. We’re on the same side, there, Rambo. We work different sides of the same street. Ease up on the Kool Aid.
