Primo’s upbringing from stealing car radios from upstate to wanting to ultimately provide for himself lead to incarceration and years of “Getting around the wrong crowd” We see throughout chapter 5 that Primo did understand the meaning of right from wrong, he was aware of his actions furthermore adapting older male youths as his masculine role models he was taught how to steal instead of essential components of a child’s life, from an age as early as ten.
