"The fuzz" is an older slang term for the police. The novel "The Outsiders" was originally published in 1967 and tells the story of a Ponyboy Curtis. He is a member of a gang called "greasers", another older slang term derived from the hair grease that was popular during the 1960's. Although the story is over 40 years old, it still resonates with teenagers today.
