It was three years ago in New York when Alfred Coney got hit in the head with a pipe. He had been hanging out with friends when a fight broke out. “I didn’t know what hit me,’’ Coney said. Though he was not severely injured, Coney decided to stop hanging out with certain friends because he could have lost his life because of those friends. “I will be careful of the friends I have and just hang out with the ones who only want the best for me,’’ he said.
