‘Once a Cop: The Street, The Law, Two Worlds, One Man’

You’ve changed your mind.
That’s allowed, you know. You can go in a different direction, pick something else, try another thing, have do-overs, or have two. Pencils come with erasers, few things are forever, and in “Once A Cop” by Cory Pegues, change may be good.
Born the second-youngest with four much older sisters, Cory Pegues grew up in a middle-class, mostly-Black neighborhood in Queens, New York. Although his father was largely absent, Pegues basked in the affection of an extended family and he was secure, until his mother began moving her children from one run-down home to a more-run-down home.
