like many have stated gangs are security, the people here dont agree with gangs but sometimes thats the only chance of survival, im lucky that i dont live in bad conditions where i could be shot because of turf, but i understand peer pressure and fear makes kids feel like they need to join a gang
its all about protecting yourself
remember, I never said they were civilized, nor do I sypothize with the mafia. People need to start actually reading what I say, don't ass-u-me shit aight? Gets shits twisted.
Only thing i said was at least the mafia gives to the community, which it does.
Stupid street gangs/mafia no matter the reason its a stupid way of life. I don't give a fuck if you're poor, scared of being killed, confused, young, retarded, cracked out, NO MATTER WHAT THE REASON IS, crime isn't the way to go.
Case fuckin Closed
