The Devil’s Homeboy

In almost every gangster movie, we watch how the kingpin deals wickedly and how he is followed by a bunch of die-hards who think they are untouchable because they are by his side and do his bidding. There’s always one sidekick, who sucks up to the Bad guy, and imagines that they are best buddies…without realizing how much his ass-kissing is getting on the kingpin’s nerves.

One random day like this, the suck-up gets a bullet in his head! Just because the Bad guy felt like it. Just because he had had enough. Just because he wanted to teach him and others a lesson. Just because he can!

Funny thing is that there are no shortage of idiots to take the place of the sidekick, and they never seem to learn the lessons or heed the warning that this Bad guy is not their friend. That they are just as disposable as homeboy on the floor with his guts spilling out!
