    Re: Gangs

    Gangs are bad, theres nothing cool about it cuz you can lose a loved in gang shootings. Also, its really sad to see someone throw their life away joining one. To me joining a gang just gives you more problems than you should already have.

    Can't fight for themselves?

    I thought the whole point of making a gang was to unify a bunch of people to complete/protect a singular goal similar to their own. Whether or not they can't fight is beside the point. I can see a bunch of cowards wanting to join those groups because they can't survive without being in one, but gangs usually don't take them. They are too much of an inconvenience or they are a threat by my experience.

    Whether or not they understand other peoples views is also irrelevant. There isn't a need to do so obviously, since they are in a group that understands/replaces that need if there even is one. Why does it matter if they don't understand? i am pretty sure they don't care anyways.

    What is the true meaning behind gangs today? The essence? If you checked the other posts, the majority of gangs in America were linked with immigrants who bound together for protection and survival. Major orginazations such as the Mafia most likely also had this objective in mind. Todays gangs such as Blood and Crypt probably arn't what they use to be, but making crews and building from there still originates from the idea of gaining protection/survival/power.

    There is a reason why most gangs are found in horrible environments and why they still/will still continue to thrive. It isn't a walk through the park in some neighborhoods or cities and sometimes a need for muscle or connections is a must. I know plenty fo people who joined for that reason and who end/ended up dieing just for that reason. That is family to some, and if you back out of the family it is no different than turning your back on them and showing disrespect after all that they have done. I remembered gangs members in Michigan hunting deserters all the way to to california or even out of the country.

    There is a reason behind their existence, just most today arn't worth jack.

    ? What are you saying? The extent of your participation in a gang was being carried safely home by members when you were five?

    Sorry I fail to see the experience in that myself.

    Now say if a gang war was happening in your neighborhood and dead hookers/people were being dumped outside your school parking lot and on the grounds..now I could see that as a bit of experience. A few friends dying maybe? Going to your favorite restraunt for lunch as usual and finding a car with a dead guy inside cut to pieces, who actually been there for about a week but you never realized it. Now that there is a bit of second ahdn experience.

    Re: Gangs

    The gangs around here are causing a head ache, my cousin told me about this site, I joined it and learned that a lot of different people join gangs, but when I talked to them, they just stop being in a gang, or stopped fronting, and other schools had some kind a presentation by the police about gangs, and some of them are actually brave enough to step up, my cousins think it's stupid but, to me it's courage to come out like that.

    gangs,
    to me gangs are fun to screw around with I mean by "screw around"
    I play tricks on them and I got into a big fight with them and when I took out my dagger they all ran off like children, I mean whats up with that?
    A group of 15 people all the age of 16 ran off like they seen a living dead or a demon.
    gangs useless but fun to mess with their heads. lol

    darknessofangel that is the point I wanted to use from this present but I would prefer talking about the experience from past so yeah really your story may be true but it gets harder to mess with them nowadays with automatic weapons more recruits and most of all they are simply trying to hide who they are instead of being just like normal friends instead of really stupid gangs it is really afiliated badly in these terms so yeah that happened to me once but some poeple just saw and came to help me out even though I do not know them and this present they turned into my friends strange isnt' it? well this topic sets me off in such an expressful person from my past, and present.
