After stopping school, the teenager left his city to come to Marseille in search of “good pay”. Now enrolled in high school, he recounts this world where he was feared by shootings and the police.
is a repentant. He is not yet of age but he has already lived several lives. “Three, four years ago”, the teenager stopped school, joined Marseille and became a dealer, provided by “good pay”. Today, the drug is now behind him. Here he is back to school. He retraces his career at the microphone of BFM Marseille Provence.
Originally, Bryan was “strong in school”: “I had an average of 14”. He then lives in another large city in the south of France. The teenager nevertheless stops school in 3rd grade and heads for a CAP. “But I didn’t like it,” he recalls.
The young man then thinks of a way to earn some money. And hears about Marseilles. Bryan knew little about Marseille and the northern districts before settling there. He says, however, that “it’s famous”. Marseille is “the city where the hash is good and where it pays the most”. He was also reported that “it pulled a lot, too”. Whatever, Bryan arrives in Marseille.
“Every minute, you stress”
Quickly, he becomes the small hand of a network of narcotics. “At the beginning, I watched. Afterwards I sold. And afterwards, I managed and I supplied,” he lists at our microphone. He discovers with his own eyes the reality of drug trafficking.
“Every minute, you stress, he admits. At any time, it could come burst.” Among his other sources of concern: being arrested.
Yet that is exactly what will happen to him. “I got caught by the police. The lookout missed them.” He recalls the scene: “They started chasing me. They caught me and took me to the geools. I did 48 hours”.
Summoned before the judge
Does he feel fear at this time? “I said to myself that afterwards it was the risk. Afterwards, it’s true that prison is complicated. Your mother, she thinks of you. You, you think of your mother. It’s complicated. “It made my mother cry,” he admits.
Bryan is summoned before a judge. He is banned from going out from 8 p.m. to 7 a.m.
However, he does not put an end to his activities as a dealer. Even aware that by continuing on this path, “it’s either you end up in prison or you die. That’s how it is. That’s the risks of easy money”.
“I learned something”
One day, the teenager finally realizes that the dangers outweigh the benefits. “Now I’ve stopped all that,” he swears. For his mother, for his little sisters, but for him too.
As the start of the school year approaches, Bryan has enrolled in high school. He is about to resume a CAP and is delighted to have “found a boss” to support him. “I’m going to work, legally,” he sums up. Without having to look over his shoulder.
Today, he does not say he regrets these weeks spent dealing. However, he does not recommend entering this environment. From this experience, he estimates what will happen to have “learned something”.
