Kansas City Has Its Own Street-Lit Sensation, Quentin Carter, Who Just Got Out of Prison
KC's Carter was a prolific drug dealer by his late teens and went to the pen for eight years after getting caught with a kilo of crack during a rally for George W. Bush in 2000.
According to Peter Rugg's story:
"At the height of their dealing, when it was a matter of course to owe someone on the East Coast $70,000 for a drug shipment, and their mother was finding automatic weapons in the house, Chris [Carter] still saw his brother [Quentin] as an even-tempered man -- he'd rather beat someone than shoot him -- with one big weakness. 'He was something else with the ladies. He'd disappear on me for a few days and come back with all these new clothes.'"
Quentin Carter has a whole new gig these days, in a ham factory. Check it out.
