My thoughts and ideas about the true cause of gang violence.
How can we all be sure that one thing over another is the blame for all those who’ve died from gang violence? Is it society? Music, TV, games? Or the parents? It just might be a little bit of all of those things.
I personally think it’s a mix…But most of all the parents. If you control your kids they won’t end up on the streets unless they’re just naturally stupid like some people out there are. Then you just can’t help it, some people are just crazy you know.
But teaching your children responsibility at an early age and self-respect along with common sense can prevent his or her later destruction as a teenager or sooner. Some people get into gangs before their age is even in the double digits. Mostly because one parent’s a whole and the other a drug dealer. Or they’re just not there either physically or emotionally.
To tell you the truth, if my kid ever joined a gang I would make him more afraid to join gangs because of me then from other gangs and the police. And I would kick his friends in the ass so hard their noses would bleed for trying to get my kid on their “side”.
So people can’t be afraid to control their kids.
If your son is going out at three in the morning with his friends what do you think he’s going to go do? Get a job? Go to the park? No he’s going to go get himself into trouble and it all couldn’t have been stopped. 80% of gang fatalities happen after midnight. So why let your kids go out after that time?
See what I’m saying?
Violent rap fads and gang movies aren’t even a drop in the bucket compared to bad parenting. I’ve been watch kung-fu movies sense I was five and I don’t go out hurting people because of it and I live in the ghetto and money wise I don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of.
Be a real parent and teach your kids right from wrong so we can all live in a better place 10 years from now when the rest of the trash all kill each other because their parents didn’t take my advice. Thanks for listening people.
