A Message from Kristopher Allen,
Author of Cursed at Birth

The youngest of six, I was born and bred on the west side of Detroit, Michigan.  What most like to call the murder capital of the United States.  True enough, Detroit is home to some of the most notorious criminals and mob-like gangs.  Gangs such as, the Young Boys Incorporated (YBI)  and the more recently popular, Detroit’s Black Mafia Family (BMF) which was founded by the legendary Big Meech.

Though I was fortunate enough to have both of my parents in the household for most of my adolescent years, I still found myself being pulled into the streets as I got older.  Oblivious at times to what was going on around me as a teenager, I eventually found that being in the streets could be both beneficial as well as detrimental to my health.
 
Some lessons were learned the hard way.  Others were immediately understood.  They had to be.  A lot of times, that’s what made the difference between life and death.  Sadly, I’ve lost many friends to those same lessons that still exist in those unforgiving streets to this day.  Thank the Lord, God walks with me at all times.

The ironic thing is that during my childhood, I was often guilty of running from the police.  Young and dumb, I thought that they always were harassing me and my friends for no reason.  Now I am the police.  Now I know the reasons.   1st Corinthians, 13th chapter, 11th verse.  “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”

Little did I know how true those words would become as I made the transition from a statistic destined for failure, to a decorated officer blessed with a beautiful family of my own.

In Cursed at Birth, I’m sharing with you a combination of personal situations and actual events that I’ve experienced from both sides of the fence; first, as a young punk that was most likely up to no good at any given time.  And finally, as a highly trained professional guided by the church and state.
