I'm sure it's peer pressure, wanting to be cool, needing back-up, and just wanting to have pride in something. I have lots of cousins who are in gangs, and they said it's showing their pride. I'm like "What PRIDE?!?!?"

People want to belong to something, a group. They want a singular identity, or something in common with others.


Gangs provides that, and other dubious benefits.


It's somewhat similar to religion, you want a sense of belonging. Most people, don't like standing alone, with nobody to back them up, sort of speaking. So you join a group (Gang, religion, whatever floats your boat), get friends who believe in the same things, or do the same things, and you feel like you have a place you belong.

Edit:

blu3ros3, do me a favour. Stop butchering the language, it's awful and it only makes you look dumb.

If your a proficient gang leader, you can protect yourself from the people who want your head by either using your oh-so-loyal subordinates for protection, or by using your skills which got you those subordinates in the first place.

So you just a heard a story about how some teens who "supposedly" killed someone?
Here's some advice, don't believe what everyone tells you >_>

I'm not going to talk about people I don't even know. But I think they are still posers, like any other teen out there who thinks they're all that.
But hey, if you believe them, then whatever. To each their own.

Survival of the fittest then.

Anyways, people can live their lives the way they want to. If they want to live a life or death life, by all means, they can go for it.

Wow.
A 14 year old girl is thinking about joining a gang.
Big man.
*clap clap*

Anyway, in middle school, some fags spray painted "Crazy Mother Fuckers" all over the walls.
Never heard of them after that.
So gangsta they use spray paint instead of guns.

I don't know about you, but I prefer spray cans over guns.

Actually, most kids that join gangs are surprisingly young.
Mostly people join gangs for protection, supposedly there's strength in numbers.
Others do it for pride I guess. They think being in a gang makes them look cool, which is quite the opposite.
