Gangs are just a group of people that are generally misunderstood by society so they do things to gain attention.


Unfortunately, the "things" they do to gain attention will also gain jail time

You guys, I hate to interrupt, and yes, you may say I'm just someone who's butting in but let me have my say in this ( I did came to gave my point of view anyway ). =D

Typing errors as well as grammar mistakes and pointing a gun at someone are two different things, entirely different. I don't see the need to debate on a pointless argument. The fact that disco_qu33n was so close to the accident underwent by her cousin, its not her fault that she dislikes someone who said being a gang leader is cool. On the other hand, bio-rhythm stated that being a gang leader is cool, which some people feels so. Both of you are right in your own perspectives, so can we stop this now?

Ahh by the way, I think people join gangs because they wanna experience how belonging to a gang is like, how do they live and etc..
Some people find that its cool to be popular because of a gang he/her is in. I'm not an exception, I've always wanted to join a group of people (not necessarily gangs) with a cause. A fine example is my Church's Youth Ministry. However, due to several reasons, I couldn't take part fully in it. ><

CRIPS SON!!!!!!!!

Honestly, organized crime is a better business to be in then a gang. Gangs are bottom feeders and hold no real industrial power. Also, bonds are loose in a gang, they might call you their brother, but that means shit 99% of the time.

Its better to be on the right hand on the devil, than in his path. Of course, people who think that are weak, and can't think for themselves.

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?!?!?"


Amen to this.

~Dunno.Either they're stupid or they're very stupid. I don't see the benefit of having a gang look at your back. It only brings up more damage to your life. I'm sorry if I offend some gang members here(if there are any) but I think people who join gangs are either cowards or just plain stupid. Think about it, why join a gang when you can hang out with some friends who doesn't need to paddle you till you can't take it anymore but in a gang, to fit in, u have to undergo some stupid initiation like hazing, etc. Getting hurt just to have friends is just stupid. So take my advice, DON'T BE STUPID!.
