Don't let them be able to read you Act confident Never show fear Never back down Never act nervous Make them think you're packing Don't let them surround you Slowly move into public view Try to be as much in the open as possible Make the interaction as short as you can Once you're kind of away, run....

Latin Kings have always been a political group, its always been about PR pride standing up for a free Puerto Rico, Latin Kings have always been freedom fighters.

I wouldn't go as far as to say that humans have a gang mentality in general. Sure, we have the need to belong, to be with others, to be in a group which acts as a support system, a safety net. But this is not necessarily a gang...we're animals, primates, and as such we aren't solitary animals, its i...

I support banning guns. The fact is that the US is way behind other industrial nations when it comes to social aspects. In general, I support a more humane system like that in the social democratic states in Europe... Banning guns won't solve every problem, far from it...there will still be guns out...

--Agreed, but to add to that, there are some people that are addicted to the chaotic lifestyle. Some people do have other options but choose not to take them, because they like the gansta lifestyle and the ghetto stardom that comes with it. There are people like that, but I think they are in the min...

But in order for riots to work, there has to be discipline and perseverence. To a point. Organized protest carry much greater weight. MLK was the master of that. If it were not for his organized protest the social change in the south would not have spear headed into major civil rights movements. ML...

Violence is not the problem, the problem is a lack of organized violence. Properly organized riots can lead to social change just like in any other nation in the world. But in order for riots to work, there has to be discipline and perseverence.

I think the real issue is the social situations which give kids the idea that they can't make it any other way, the factors which give them such a sense of desperation, this is what needs to be addressed. At risk kids aren't about crime or criminal inclinations, they're victims of society who see no...

I grew up with everyone becoming a Latin King, it was just something that you knew you'd do one day. It was a right of passage we all took, and we knew that we had to have that support system in order to survive the streets....you really couldn't do it alone and stay in one piece. Plus, it was the w...

When you're going through it no, its not a waste of time. Its a necessity at the time. When you're out of it, it can seem like a waste, like time was wasted....but I don't think it is. You do what you can given the conditions and knowledge available to you at the time.
