Many cops and street agents have been told too many times that hardcore streetwise punks and ex-cons won’t talk to you. Just the opposite is true. These ex-cons and street punks are easier to roll than other criminals. They are always on the hustle and their own survival is all that really matters to them.
Work hard to try and flip them. You’ll be surprised at how often they will give up information to get a break. Keep this in mind when you deal with them. Most criminals would give up almost anyone, including their grandmother to get a break!
