The Cause of Gang Violence

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.

    gangs are stupid and the problem is within the system, cause when they took the right from parents to displine our children that’s when it got out of control, in my day a spanking didn’t get your parents sent to jail, now a days you can’t even look at your kids sideways without cps knocking at your door, so yes i blame the system, but with me i rather kick my kids but then let a gang do it or worst. parents don’t have the same control and alot of the parents were teen parents theirselves. i notice alot of the high school kids are the children of my former highschool classmates. and once there are “real parents” over the age of 12 it will work out better. the first step is to stop teen pregnacey that will cut down on the parental control factor. you see where i’m going with this. alot of the teen parents or gang bangers or the fathers are.

    Not all gang members are bad. The ones who shoot innocent bystanders are bad, but not all of them are like that. Many people believe that if you’re in a gang, you’re a horrible person who should be shot. But the truth is, gangs can have positive effects on community.
    For one thing, they keep the crime controlled. When a gang takes over an area, they don’t want anyone else committing crimes. That means that there aren’t going to be anyone outside of the gang robbing stores or dealing drugs. Gangs will usually kill anyone doing this, because they want to control the crime syndicate. Gangs will keep the crime in area controlled.
    Now, of course they will commit violent crimes themselves, such as robbery and carjacking. However, they mostly sell illegal drugs. The drug trade is harmless to the community. It only affects the drug users who buy it from the gangs. So while gangs may commit some violent crimes, they’re usually selling drugs.

    There is no love given to the kids. A parent when they neglect their child in love, the kid is going to look for it in friends. That is when they start to affiliate with the wrong crowd. They do so because they are not stupid but because they do not receive love from family, or friends. Some may be different but in a word where love and communication is important, stupid should not be categorized to broken, hurting kids. Be positive. But Realistic.
