    Turn straight

    Please explain "turn straight" meaning. Here's context -> Rosie Velasco: An ex-gangster turned straight, Rosie Velasco is determined to prove herself worthy of her badge; unfortunately, she's just been partnered with Nick Kang, and isn't too happy about hitting the streets with a loose cannon.

    Re: Turn straight

    It means she has given up her criminal life and become law-abiding. Look up "to go straight".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
