Chapter 11 Summary: “Thug Life”

Despite his misgivings, Su accompanies the Street Ratz’s to rob Beemer Guy, a wealthy Chinese man who drives a BMW. He gets drunk during the stakeout as Dragon Head reviews their plan, which involves ringing the doorbell, knocking out Beemer Guy, and burglarizing the house. The plan goes sideways when the gang discovers the house empty. Snooky throws a brick through a window, earning the ire of Dragon Head. The gang ransacks the house and steals valuables, including Beemer Guy’s Rolex.

Dragon Head orders Su to search under the carpet, where he finds piles of hundred-dollar bills. Su sees a family picture and realizes Beemer Guy is his classmate’s father. Snooky gets electrocuted while removing a light socket, but not before finding a large cache of jewelry. Dragon Head leaves a message on the counter warning Beemer Guy not to call the police before the gang makes their getaway. The next day, while Su is at school, the Street Ratz sell the loot to jewelry stores in Chinatown. Su feels guilty for his part in the robbery, especially after seeing his classmate, but it does not stop him from spending his share.

 

Dragon Head is under DEA surveillance for cocaine trafficking.
