Homeless in America: Larry

Larry lives on the street after serving a long stretch in an Illinois prison for gang activity. He sports extensive prison tattoos on each arm and a new bullet hole in his foot. Friendly and easy to talk to, Larry seems to bear no ill will and was very matter of fact about his life. Passing through by thumb and by Greyhound on his way to family in the Southwest, Larry gladly accepted a few dollars for bus fare on the next leg of his journey.
