I think I've noticed gang activity/influences around 5th grade, but never Kindergarten, my word. o_0 I saw it in greater numbers in high school. Those ignorant boys thought they were big shots admitting they were apart of the Bloods and trying to recruit as many people as possible, including the children from other countries who didn't speak much English. My sister noticed the Blood/Crips feud at the school she attended years ago. She heard of a boy getting beat up for wearing the color red and he's not even in the Bloods. =T

What makes me scratch my head at gangs is one, how come those kids that joins/recruited do not see they're puppets that can be easily replaced and that their dreams of being a higher rank are just dreams. Two, why are you destroying your neighborhood and hurting other people over some inane and unimportant stuff? Why waste your life and time that you'll never get back doing such a thing that doesn't benefit you or the people around you? They have a brain and they're not even using it.

The world of gangs and their activities goes deeper than what most of us know anyway. The rich are a form of gangs in their own way to when you think about it. When it comes to Policemen and Politicians, they play a hand in it as well (in my opinion) since many of them have done little to nothing to break up that impudent population in certain neighborhoods. I remember one of those guys who were trying to be nominated for some title, promised to cut down the gang numbers and their actions, but never did.


They probably did, it just wasn't enough to have an impact. If you arrest the gang leaders (If you can arrest them) the organization doesn't fall apart. Lower ranking members step up and fill the open positions. You can't just remove key players and expect results, you need to either A, destroy the ideal of being in a gang, or B, destroy the gang itself utterly and without mercy. Slay them to the last member or arrest everyone affiliated with it regardless of member innocence. Basically making it illegal to be a gang member. The problem is not that government and government forces don't try to stop gangs, it's that the government has to work within the confines of the laws it creates while those it goes after are free to use their own devices. That is the main problem.

growing up I have witnessed 12 drive-by shooting in my neighborhood before I was even 10, I still remember hearing the gunshots and pushing down and covering my sister. gangs will never go away as long as kids seek comfort that they can not get at home or feel that they need to belong somewhere.

How many gangs are there in Sweden ? Norway ? Finland ? ........... If you provide good social security ( note - GOOD social security), free education, you will find that the concept you know as 'gang' vanishes before you can say 'vanish'.

Sorry, there are. Healthcare and taxes will not fix the problem.

Gangs are represented at all levels of society, just perceived differently. Let's level the playing field and carpet bomb the world. Who(m)ever is left can have it.

There won't be much left to have now will there?

Nonetheless, if weapons of mass destruction start being used then I say let's take everyone down with us.

Gangs will always exist, no matter how well off they are in society. Just as crime will exist. Human nature.

you have to think outside the box. Gangs have always been around since time and humans began. we are a social species.

And the youth involed just want to belong , have inportance! The downside is the leader and his agenda or beliefs. The kids will follow whether good or bad.

The only way to get rid of them is training youth to not get involve in them but that's a hard thing to do as it isn't easy to control the way we behave :/

Get rid of the projects, the lower class will insist on remaining in the lower class unless something is pushing them.

Well it really is possible to dissemble gangs, probably not get rid of them completely. principiis obsta; If you cut the buddings somewhere, the plant will eventually die.
