ABSTRACT
The article features G-Rock, a Crip and a cooperating informant (CI) for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation. G-Rock came from a deeply religious and relatively stable family. He dreamed of becoming a gangbanger and at the same time, he also dreamed about becoming a cop. His life as a CI and a Crip begins at night when he drives to the area under the control of his seat. He has averaged more than $2,000 a month in earnings over the decade he has been a CI.
