Gangs

Just how stupid does one have to be to join a gang? Why in the world would one want to be a part of something that most likely will get you killed? Just how small do you have to feel to need a gang to make you feel like a big shot? And just how big are you really if you are just another member of some gang? Is killing someone the thing that makes you a man? Seems like it is more manly to not join a gang in this day and age. If having guts is what it is all about, it takes guts to say no to peer pressure. It takes guts to tell bullies to go to hell. Black, brown, white, green or orange, I don’t care what color ones skin is, we are all just human beings, no one better than the rest. Being in a gang does not and will not make someone a better person. To me it just shows how small a mind a gang member has. What ever happened to the freedom of choice we are supposed to have in this country, if the neighborhood gang makes you join? I have always found it ironic that the bullies of this world are the ones who have the most insecurities about who they are. I have always hated the saying “if you can’t beat them, join them”, what a sad way to feel. It seems to be the way of the world when it comes to gangs these days. I would like to know what happened to the pride of being an individual, it was one of the things that made this country what it is today, or can I say that anymore? Once I felt I could, but it has been many years since I felt that way. The only individuals who seem to be making a name for themselves these days are crooked politicians. I just hope our new president doesn’t get caught doing some thing wrong, but he is a politician and most of them seem to be crooked and out to get what they can from the American public. Politicians almost are a gang unto themselves it seems.

  1. Have you ever personally gotten to know someone who was in a gang?

    • Would knowing a gang member change my idea of what gangs are? They are not the boys clubs of my youth are they? I do not care how good a person one may seem to be, if you are in a gang that kills or bullies people for no real reason, then mine opinion stands.

  2. do you know that even apes form gangs? it really astonishes me. they come together, whatch another group and wait for the right moment (which means one of the others being alone) to go over and beat him up. no (for me) obvious reason, nothing that differs from human behaviour.

    • Apes may form gangs as you say, but do they really have a choice in what they do like we do? Or are the gangs at the same mental level as the apes?

  3. Not probably your idea of what gangs are–but perhaps your idea about the people who join them. People have their reasons from what they do, even if those reasons appear sad.

    You were in the military, yes? Militaries kill and bully, too, it’s just that they’re sanctioned by their governments.
