Interview with Patricia Harris
QUESTION 3
INTERVIEWER:

HOW OLD WERE YOU AND WERE YOU INVOLVED IN ANY OF THE SERIOUS VIOLENCE?

Patricia Harris:

Well, not… I were, I was about nine or ten, but I wasn't involved in any of the serious violences but um, I could have been, but at the pa-particular times that I was, it was happenin' somewhere else where I wasn't at that time. But you know, I know about ‘em and my mother and my brother they were involved in ‘em, you know, they were locked up, they were, dogs were put on ‘em and water was skeeted on ‘em, and this type thing. But at that time, I guess by me bein' so young, my mother just didn't want to get me off into it. But I'm sure I could have been. Because she was. But the serious violence, no I wasn't. I wasn't involved in that. But just, you know, the verbal abuse, you know, is mainly what I bec—-you know, came in contact with. No physical, no physical contact, just verbal.
